Lady Gaga’s single “Born This Way” hasn’t even been released yet, and already people — including Justin Bieber, Ellen Degeneres and James Blunt — are trying to discern what the song will sound like.
On the today’s (Feb. 9) episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” host DeGeneres provided her own take on how the chorus of the upcoming single will sound. After attempting to Auto-Tune her vocals, she enlists the help of actual musicians — James Blunt and Justin Bieber.

While Blunt’s take is a mere rehashing of his U.S. hit “You’re Beautiful,” Bieber’s version is certainly the most melodic of the three. Granted, the three didn’t have much to work with but a few choice lyrics, but there’s no hurt in trying anyway. And Justin Bieber takes on the drum kit (among other interesting activities on the show, such as playing ping-pong and showing off his “Ellen” undies).
For those wondering what the song will actually sound like, Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” is slated for release this Friday (Feb. 11).
