The Top 10 entrants for this year’s Covers have been chosen, but we’re still looking for an eleventh entrant to fill the Wildcard position and we need your help! Check out the Covers site and keep rating your favourite songs to help us decide who will make it into the Wildcard spot and continue to wow us with their amazing covers!
We love all the amazing songs uploaded for this year’s Covers and decided to give a shout-out to a few of the entrants who really caught our attention.
Music Video Honourable Mentions
These entrants went above and beyond by shooting their very own music videos!
Nikita Graham embodied Britney through the ages in her cover of I Wanna Go.
Sandy Taronno sang on beat, but kept his body in fast forward for his Britney Spear’s cover.
Micky Knightt kept us glued to the screen with his music video about a man behind bars.
Adrian Baldauf not only gave us great cover songs, he also gave us original music videos!
These entrants not only have great voices, but we think they also have a future in music production.
Mack Roy’s cover of I Wanna Go will make any music fan sit up and take notice.
Mat Wilkins cover of LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem made us forget what song we were listening to and delivered a brand new hit.
Most Creative Covers
These entrants took the six song choices and made them completely their own!
Joe Remington blew us away with his original rap version of Hedley’s Invincible.
I wonder if Justin Bieber ever thought of adding bag pipes to Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe? Alli Walker used the Scottish instrument in her cover and we loved it!
Robbie Damourakis created a club version of Hedley’s Invincible and made the song all his own.
Ebrahim Lakhani’s smooth, neo-soul cover of Love You Like A Love Song goes down like a cool drink on a hot summer’s day.
We thought the six song choices were big, but these entrants made them even bigger with their Broadway-caliber voices!
Daevyd Pepper shows he’s ready for a Rent audition with his impressive pipes.
We think talent agents will be calling Chris MacFarlane definitely!
Worth Another Look
With their amazing voices we’d be crazy to not include these strong entrants in our Wildcard wrap up blog.
Dave Sangalli’s heart-wrenching cover of Love You Like A Love Song makes us love this song.
Arianna Lamando- ohlsson listed John Mayer and James Blunt as two of her favourite artists and we think both musicians would be just as impressed with Arianna as we are!
Sarah Cullen’s sweet voice makes it impossible to not smile while listening to her cover of Call Me Maybe.
Sarah Orton’s cover of Carly Rae Jepsen is fierce, fierce, fierce!
