Shortly after “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam” aired Radio Times published an article ranking all the songs in the episode, which began by confirming that yes, Tom Ellis can actually sing. The piece even included a 2011 video of Ellis singing “The A Team” by Ed Sheeran.
This distinctive part of “Lucifer” arose by a happy accident.

However, even with his strong singing voice, Ellis sometimes let his nerves get the best of him, especially during “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam” when Debbie Gibson appeared on the screen. “I was really nervous the first couple of takes because Debbie is so professional and used to doing all these things,” he told Variety. “A couple of times I got the words mixed up and I was very angry with myself, but she was just great.”
