Ever wondered which footballers have the best singing voice?
Cabello, who is performing before the match at the Stade de France, was asked to judge various players and pundits on their singing ability in an interview with CBS.
Who is Cabello?
Cabello is a Cuban-born American singer, who rose to fame as a member of the best-selling girl group Fifth Harmony.
She has amassed billions of streams on music platforms as a solo artist and her song “Havana” was the highest-selling digital single of 2018.
The 25-year-old has also won two Latin Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards and one Billboard Music Award.

Cabello praises Benzema, Alaba & Alisson
Speaking to CBS, Cabello was shown clips of various footballers and pundits singing and offered her thoughts on each individual.
Acclaimed pundit Micah Richards was the first to be judged. The former Man City star belted out a rendition of “Nice and Slow” by Usher, which Cabello applauded.
“Oh my god, I love him,” she exclaimed. “I think he nailed it.”
Next up, Cabello was shown a clip of Madrid star Karim Benzema singing “Check out Time” by 2Pac.
“I feel like he could be a singer also”, Cabello stressed. “That one was good.”

The ex Fifth Harmony singer was also a fan of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson and his cover of “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
In fact, Cabello even likened the Brazilian shot-stopper to the Hollywood actor, stating: “He’s about to kill it. He’s also channelling the visual of Bradley Cooper too, which is interesting.”
Of course, there was also time for Cabello to see Jamie Carragher’s beautiful rendition of “You’ll never walk alone,” which prompted the singer to ask when she might get to hear the famous Liverpool anthem.
“That’s so sick,” she said. “I wonder if that’ll happen after I sing or before. I hope after so I can see it.”
Can you name the team that plays in this UEFA Champions League final stadium from 2021?
