This is one of the most unique covers we've ever seen and everyone involved looks to be getting a kick out of it.

It's countertenor Robin Blaze and the University of York Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir doing a classical performance of Justin Bieber's 'Beauty And A Beat'.

Chances are you've heard the original, but for reference, you can check it out right here.

The piece was arranged by Steve Pycroft, conducted by Peter Seymour, filmed at the University of York in Britain and broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
