Daniel Sturridge delivered an angelic rendition of Usher's hit song Nice & Slow on Super Sunday, although Roy Keane didn't seem too impressed by the audition.
Ahead of the new 2023/24 campaign, it was announced that Sturridge, 33, would be joining the Sky Sports' presenting team after an impressive TV debut in April.
"I'm looking forward to using my experience on the pitch and bringing this insight to the fans watching at home," he said after the news was announced.
The former England international gave us some insightful bits of analysis throughout Sunday's clash between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
He also gave us some entertaining moments alongside fellow pundits Micah Richards and Roy Keane. In fact, one moment in particular went viral.
As you can see from the footage below, Sturridge decided to give us a song at the end of Super Sunday and well, it received mixed reviews.

In addition to the above clip, Keane gave us a wry smile when Sturridge decided to perform his best "baby" impression as he stood alongside the former Manchester United captain.

Sturridge, who has lifted two Champions League titles, one Premier League title and two FA Cups, was released by Australian A-league side Perth Glory last year.
But now, the enigmatic striker will join the likes of Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp on punditry duty.
It was certainly an entertaining Super Sunday, and one of the best moments from Stamford Bridge came at half-time, when Roy Keane's cameo in the latest Sky Sports advert was broadcast to millions.
Ahead of the new season, Keane joined the likes of Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland in an entertaining 'Greatest Show on Earth' commercial.
F1 driver Lewis Hamilton also featured alongside England cricket captain Ben Stokes and ringmaster Idris Elba; the British actor known for his role in Luther.
A few weeks after the advert was first broadcast and those inside the Sky Sports studio reacted to Keane's iconic cameo.
Micah Richards, Daniel Sturridge and presenter David Jones waited in anticipation for Keane's initial reaction and to be fair, he took it well.
"Red nose day has come early," Richards laughed. "All you need now is some size 20 boots."
