Music has played a central role in Love Island season 5.

From building tension to breaking the hearts of viewers, the team behind the music choices know what they are doing.

And during an emotional moment shared between Amy and Curtis in episode 27 (Wednesday, July 3rd), the music selection got viewers feeling teary.

Here’s everything you need to know about the cover of a Chris Isaak song the Love Island producers chose for the moment.

Love Island episode 27 – Wicked Game cover

A cover of Chris Isaak’s 1989 classic ‘Wicked Game’ played in episode 27 of the new Love Island series.

When Curtis began to explain to Amy how his head had turned in Casa Amor while she was falling in love with him, the slow ballad began to play.

As both Amy and Curtis broke down in tears, viewers couldn’t help but feel teary too!

Who performs the ‘Wicked Game’ cover?

This emotional cover was performed by up-and-coming British artist Grace Carter.

The singer-songwriter is just 22-years-old and released her first studio EP, Why Her Not Me, back in December 2018.

Her cover of Isaak’s song is her most recent single and we’re sure after it was used in such a memorable Love Island scene, it will get Grace’s name on the map!

One viewer even took to Twitter to say “Of all the Chris Isaac ‘wicked game’ montages I’ve seen on tv, that is up there among the best”.

They’ve used another cover in Love Island before

Fans of Love Island know the producers have a habit of reusing the tunes from the show.

For those who religiously watched Love Island season 4, they may remember a certain moment where a version of ‘Wicked Game’ was used.

In season 4 episode 30, James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of the song was used when Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer were saying they loved one another.

Although it may not have packed as much of a punch as when it was used in season 5 episode 27’s heartbreaking moment.
