One Direction vs. Lorde: Whose ‘Use Somebody’ Cover Is Better? – Readers Poll
Let's be real: We basically swooned our faces right off while watching One Direction cover the Kings of Leon hit. Seriously, from Harry's powerful opening notes to Louis' solo (yes!) to Niall beltin' it out while playing the acoustic guitar, we basically left our emotions on the floor as the guys totally and completely nailed the cover. Of course, we can't forget Liam and Zayn, who gave the tune that extra "oomph" with their passionate vocals. Not gonna lie, we've had this one on repeat all day.
But the fact that Lorde was just 12 years old when she covered 'Use Somebody' just makes her version just that much more impressive. While she doesn't necessarily sound like the Lorde we all know and love (after all, back then, she was just Ella Yelich-O' Connor) there is no denying that baby Lorde has some serious vocal chops, showcasing her already unique voice on the powerful track. We're totally obsessed!
