  • Jason Lynch

    Pretty good list and very good performances, but no Leo Morachhioli? Seriously...
    Guess we're gonna need to crank the volume up for Metal and Grunge to get any respect around here.

    Gotye thought that last one was a good cover, and included it in a video of his favorite covers, except one.
    Tay Zonday's. He wanted everyone to go watch Tay's on its own.

  • Caio Henrique

    It's my very own opinion, but what a hell of boring list... I liked 3 songs and, again, in my opinion frog leap studios has done better than many of these guys...

    Yet another big company misspells "Stirling" it's one letter off guys! I don't see how that's so difficult.

  • Tatiana Gois
    Tatiana Gois 2 years ago

    in my opinion the Noah Guntherie (don't know how to spell his last name) should have been a little higher on the list. but at least he was on it. I LOVE his version of sexy and I know it and he is one of my favorite male youtube artists. thanks for reminding me of this AMAZING cover and showing other people who don't know him or just know him from Glee that unfortunately they really didn't show how INSANELY talented he is.

  • Mel D

    Too bad every song other than Gotye and Adelle are COMPLETE SHIT!!! How bout you include more REAL music in these. Sound synthesizers and auto-tune are tools of talentless hacks.

AND that is why there's not many artist anymore out there! COVERS are taking a lot of the money!! SAD if you ask me! Anybody covering a song word for word and makes any money should be penalized for some money owing off popular media sites!

  • Heitor Saldanha

    It is a completely outrage to leave out Aaron O'Keefe' Music Foundation's cover of Forty Six & Two, (originaly by Tool), performed up to perfection by children, with the early star Kala Rose!

    Tori Kelly being an honourable mention is a joke. Her thinkin bout you cover with the beat boxer should have been top 5 as it was live and unedited, single take and effortlessly flawless.

  • Ne znam kako da se zovem pa ću napisat nešto dugo

    no Grimmie? I'm dissapointed, and everyone knows what I do when I'm dissapointed, especially Suesan and Sheila.
