Best Cover Song Performance – 2015 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards
The 2015 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards are here! That means you get the opportunity to vote for your favorite stars in countless categories. This one is for Best Cover Song Performance, and believe us when we tell you it was nearly impossible to narrow down the nominees. There were so many insane covers that happened in the past year that it was tough to compile a list of absolute favorites, but we think we got as close as we possibly could.
5 Seconds of Summer's cover of the Romantics' 'What I Like About You' was so good they decided to make it a single, and we're certainly not complaining about that. Then there was that totally awesome Home Free cover of Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass' that we still watch on repeat.
Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran brought his own style to Beyonce's 'Drunk In Love' in a way we didn't think possible. Who outdoes Beyonce? Well, no one, but Ed came pretty close. Another person who came close to dethroning the queen (just kidding, that would never happen, Beyonce --we love you)? Jacquie Lee doing her cover of 'Pretty Hurts.' Talk about unreal.
Then there was Meghan Trainor covering Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' with a ukelele that probably couldn't be cuter unless the ukelele turned into a golden retriever puppy at the end of the performance. Speaking of Taylor, if you missed her cover of Vance Joy's 'Riptide,' you should probably get on that immediately.
Miley Cyrus reminded us all that, deep down, the girl can sing. She blew us away with a rendition of Etta James' 'I'll Take Care of You,' while One Direction, Lorde, Pharrell, Dave Grohl and way more covered the Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows' -- bringing us slightly to tears.
