Teddy Swims gave the live television debut of his viral hit during The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday afternoon (Feb. 11).
The breakout singer/songwriter and 29-year-old Georgia native, whose music has been streamed over 400 million times, performed his anthemic tune, “911,” alongside his band, live from Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.
After being introduced by DeGeneres, Swims took to the stage with his soulful vocals. His performance, one fans won’t soon forget, didn’t disappoint as he soared with his impressive vocal range.
“If there’s a fire in your kitchen / And when your roof just won’t stop leaking / I got your back without you even asking / If I gotta whoop somebody’s ass, I’ma do it with passion,” Swims begins to sing.
As his performance progressed, he belted out the lyrics to the track, which appears on his latest EP, Tough Love.
“Ain’t gotta call 911, you can hit me up / Girl, you know I’m the one whenever you need something / An emergency, or when you just can’t sleep / And I’ll slide through for ya with that urgency,” the rising star sings on the track’s chorus.
