Alex and Sierra, the resident lovebirds on this season’s X Factor, took on Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” on Wednesday night in front of the singing competition’s judge Kelly Rowland, who is one of the song’s original singers.

“I must admit I was not ready for that … I was really shocked, but you guys really, actually pulled that off,” Rowland told the duo during the judges’ critiques.

Destiny’s Child released “Say My Name” as a single in 2000, and it went on to win two Grammys for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group as well as Best R&B Song.

The pair also performed “Say Something” by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, which is currently No. 1 on the iTunes top songs chart:
