While the two contestants have opposites voices and personalities, Lizzy and Murphy brought out a different side in each other. Murphy even joined Lizzy barefoot on stage for a performance of Fleetwood Mac’s song “Dreams.”

“After my meeting with you yesterday, I knew it was either going to be magical, or it was going to be something where I go…’we failed at the combination,'” Lionel Richie commented on the contestants pairing.

Both contestants remarked that they decided to focus on “having a good time,” and Murphy even ended the song by jumping up and down. After the performance, the judges got together privately to discuss the duet, and Katy Perry pointed out that the pairing was “so weird, it’s wonderful.”

Ultimately, the judges felt that the performance took both singers to the next level and passed Lizzy and Murphy to the next round. After the performance, Lizzy shared the pair’s response in an Instagram post.

“MURPHY!!! WE DID IT! WE DID IT MURPHY!!! I cannot tell you how blessed I was and am to know Murphy. What an experience this was…!!!”
