If you need another reason to add to your list titled "Why Dogs Are the Greatest and Definitely, Definitely Better Than People in Every Way" (we all have that list, right?), here's one for you: They can sing better than people.

At least some of them can. LIVE with Kelly and Ryan held a "Bow Wow Wow" contest for singing dogs where viewers sent in videos to be voted on by the audience.

Rico, a 6-year-old Siberian Husky from West Michigan with the howl of an angel, was announced as the winner, earning his owners, Jason "Harv" and Melanie Hargreaves, a free trip to St. Lucia.

He is highly intelligent and has a knack for mimicking his pack (his family). He loves classic rock and pop hits from the 70’s and 80’s.

Unfortunately, Rico wasn't the true winner of the contest. LIVE posted an update on Instagram explaining that there was a calculation error with the votes and the actual Amber Martin and her dog, Walter.

Vote for your favorite Bow Wow Wow Video by liking it! From Leander,Texas…Amber Martin’s dog, Walter! My little guy is not afraid to show the world his feelings... whether I’m taking too long to get a sandwich or the vet isn’t speeding up, he definitely isn’t afraid to show the world all the feels. Some call it dramatic, but he will tell you it’s all passion. When he’s not calm and collected he’s giving head tilted back performances that force you to watch the show and he’s always giving you extra.

But all ends well! As the Ludington Daily News reports, Rico's lovely voice still won the Hargreaves a free trip.
