Gleek Off! Cover Contest: “I Dreamed a Dream”

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 we could find. It's time for you to rock the vote! Yes we can!

From "Dream On": From Les Misérables — "I Dreamed a Dream"

Our first cover is from shiowchi, on piano and vocals. The performer, Diana Li, has as strong a voice as would be expected for a song like this one. Plus, check out the crazy pattern on those couch cushions!

Okay, so as you know, we typically eschew vocal performances that are just done over a karoake-style instrumental track. But in the case of this cover by amyloader, we decided to make an exception. (Don't kill us!) First of all, since this is a Broadway number, there aren't a ton of covers done by people strumming along on an acoustic guitar. Secondly, this girl, Amy, is only fourteen! With a voice like that, we think we might have a real-life Rachel Berry on our hands!
