Gleek Off! Cover Contest: Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful”
It turns out the cast members of Glee aren't the only people who do amazing covers of the songs you love... or are completely sick of. (Seriously, can we all collectively decide Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" has been covered enough? Please?!) Each week, we'll choose our two favorite YouTube covers of a song performed that week on Glee, and let you decide which of the two is best! You'll be doing your part to make someone a star... while simultaneously crushing the other person's dreams! (You should be ashamed. How do you sleep at night?) And now... here are the two best covers that we could find. It's time for you to rock the vote! Yes we can!
From "Home": Christina Aguilera - "Beautiful"
First up is this faithful rendition by SheenaMelwani. She combines her beautiful voice with talent on piano. Plus, bonus points for not having taped this sitting on an unmade bed in a cluttered dorm room, as do 85% of the videos we see! How inviting is that lovely bay window behind her? Jealous!
While the first cover was a more traditional rendition, this version by bummers28 switches it up a little bit. Here's what it might sound like if given the Jack Johnson treatment. Plus, to really get you in the Jack Johnson mood, he's wearing what looks like a camp T-shirt, with baseball hats and a photo collage hanging in the background. Because you gotta take time to just live, man.
