Best Musical Moments on ‘The Real’!


From Adrienne and Israel’s performance of “Secrets” to Nicole Scherzinger showing off her best celebrity impersonations, “The Real” has had some amazing musical moments throughout our seven years.

Check out some of the best, below!

Adrienne & Israel Perform ‘Secrets’!

In 2018, our very own Ade and Iz gave a beautiful performance of “Secrets” off his album “Road to DeMaskUs.”

Backed by a string quartet, the couple gave us vocals upon vocals while wearing black formalwear.

The emotional rendition not only impressed fans but it also impressed the Daytime Emmys, as Ade and Iz both snagged a nod for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program.

Hallelujah to the Houghtons!

Adrienne Sings Our Theme Song While Spinning a Hula Hoop on Her Neck!

We all know Ade can sing, but can she sing our theme song while spinning a hula hoop around her neck??

Back in 2015, one Twitter user dared Ade to do exactly that as part of our segment “Twitter Dares.”

Our girl not only completed the dare but she also sounded amazing doing it!

Nicole Scherzinger Does Celebrity Impressions!

In 2017, we challenged Nicole Scherzinger to sing nursery rhymes while impersonating the voices of fellow A-list singers.

Not surprisingly, Nicole nailed every one and sounded exactly like vocalists such as Shakira, Alanis Morissette, and Britney Spears.

Bravo, Nicole! Bravo!

Wyclef Jean Spits a Freestyle!

Attention, all aspiring rappers!

During a 2017 episode, guest Wyclef Jean not only explained the importance of battle rap but he also spit a freestyle while sitting on our couch.

Show ’em how it’s done, Wyclef!

Lizzo Sounding ‘Good as Hell’ on ‘The Real’!

Did you know Lizzo’s smash hit “Good as Hell” was originally released in 2016?

That year, Lizzo performed the catchy tune in promotion of the comedy film “Barbershop: The Next Cut.”

Three years later, the song was re-released and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100!

You heard it first on “The Real”!
