Instead of whipping out the life-size gummy bears and cans of marshmallow clouds, the 'You're Beautiful' singer slowed things down and replaced electronic beats with a traditional band. Using his tenor vocals, he easily gets through the track and doesn't even attempt to change the lyrics -- complete with daisy dukes, sun-kissed skin and bikini tops. Although Blunt channels his girly side on this performance, there's no denying that his buttery voice and laidback demeanor makes this one fun cover.
When he's not covering songs about melting popsicles, Blunt is gearing up to get back on the road. After touring Europe in February and March, Blunt will return to the US and Canada starting with a show at Boston's House of Blues on April 20 and end on May 10 in Vancouver. Pop breakout Christina Perri will also join Blunt on tour.
