Grunge goes sultry.

Postmodern Jukebox and singer Hailey Reinhart gave Soundgarden’s ’90s classic “Black Hole Sun” a jazzy revamp via YouTube on Thursday.

The season 10 American Idol contestant twisted the Billboard hit into a swing-friendly, soulful sound, all while slaying in an Alyce Paris gown. The performance received more than 59,000 views a few hours after it went up. This is Reinhart’s eighth cover with the group and the starlet says she’s always wanted to cover the “divine tune” on her Instagram.

Postmodern Jukebox is a rotating music group created by musician Scott Bradlee. The group covers classic hits from various genres, and their YouTube page has over 2 million subscribers.
