This Genius Used Snapchat's Gender Swap Filter To Perform Evanescence's Bring Me To Life

It's been 16 years since Evanescence dropped their all-time classic Bring Me To Life, and even now, the song is still the gift that keeps on giving.

While last year saw pop megastar Ariana Grande channeling her inner 2003-era Amy Lee, 2019 has brought with it another instance of the song going viral: this time with the help of Snapchat's brilliant new gender swapping filter.

Twitter user Latifa has uploaded a clip of an absolute hero on Snapchat, who used the filter to mimic both Amy Lee and Paul McCoy's lines in the song, captioning the video, "The only person to use the filter right."

We couldn't agree more – check out the genius video below.

Too good.

In other Evanescence news, Amy recently revealed that new music could arrive “hopefully next year.”

“This is sort of a creation year for us,” the singer told SiriusXM’s Grant Random. “We’re playing a few festivals and some headlining shows — a little bit, but not too heavy. And in the time in between, getting together and starting the writing process for a new album.

“We’re just gonna get together and see what happens this month, and start doing that more regularly until we feel like we’re ready to do it.”
