LeAnn Covers Adele!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLeann RimesAdele

Wow! We are impressed!

Earlier this month, LeAnn Rimes performed at the State Fair in Grand Island, Nebraska, and sang a pretty incredible cover of Adele's very own Someone Like You!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Obviously, no one can compare the Goddess herself, but we definitely appreciate this spin on the song!

Well done, gurl!

    Wow, her career sure has tanked…She marries a cheat and she is playing state fairs….I do not really dislike her or anything…I really do not feel one way or the other about her…However it struck me that performing at fairs and your cheating hubby who finally got an acting job is about to have his show cancelled is depressing…Oh well.



  2. 2

    I honestly forgot just how talented she is….amazing!!



  3. 3

    Very well done. She does have a great voice.

    hey sanfran1! lots of country artists perform at fairs…. even some pretty big stars. it's not that rare in the genre! :)



  5. 5

    Now this is what she does best…sing! The venue is typical for all CW artists. From Patsy Cline on down. She does an amazing job of creating her own sound. She doesn't miss a note or a tone. And…even Adele has trouble singing this live…so…kudos to both. None of us really know what is going on behind the scenes, so judge not lest ye be judged.

    See, if she had more performances like this, or actually put out a good, radio-friendly song, no one would care about her transgressions. Until her career doesn't suck again, her personal life is going to be the only thing people tal about. Which is a pity because she's actually talented and I grew up listening to her.



  7. 7

    what do you mean this spin on the song? it is a straight forward cover. nothing special.

    I know for a FACT LeAnn Rimes has a far better voice then Adel. Now lets not take this out of context, Adel has a great voice but Ms. Rimes is F#*KING AMAZING! Plus LeAnn will out last Adel BECAUSE ADEL SMOKES CIGARETTES and we can all see LeAnn takes care of herself, HA!!!!



  9. 9

    Will someone PLEASE tell Leann that Karaoke Night at the local bar is not a concert performance?

    And also tell her Eddie is MAKING-OUT with one of the cocktail waitresses in the men's room stall…..



  10. 10

    Sorry Perez, she sang this much better than Adele. Adele is jacking her voice with all that smoking or whatever she is doing to it. Adele is heading to Kim Carnes category if she don't cut it out. I don't know why Leann doesn't have much of a career. She is one of the best singers out there. I guess, she just can't pick good songs for her cds.



  11. 11

    With all the negative stuff that gets posted about her, I forget LeAnn Rimes can sing! That was great :)



  12. 12

    Re: sanfran1 – Many artists in country play at state fairs. I've been to Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, and Sugarland all at state fairs in the last couple years. It's not that unusual.

    Anyways, I hope she stays out of the media. I'm really sick of hearing about her cheating scandal and eating disorder. Do what your best at Leann, sing. Not being a media whore.



  13. 13

    She can sing anything so I'm not surprised. though I see her image as more tougher now after that scandal. She could do a classic rock cover with esge and it would deliver better than these soft delicate songs because she's tough



  14. 14

    Does this girl do anything original, why does she cover everyone elses stuff……………
    Can't find a boyfriend, just take someone elses husband, I know it takes two, but, can't find or to cheap to buy your own music, or better yet not talented enough to write your own stuff, just cover some one elses……..get it!……….she's a loser!



  15. 15

    Something tells me that this song pretty much covers how LeAnn's husband's ex-wife feels right about now.



  16. 16

    No surprises here, the woman can sing anything. This is what everyone should be concentrating on - her voice and music and not her personal life.



  17. 17

    Haters gonna hate. Stellar job LeAnn. Adele did not sing this better or worse.



  18. 18

    Re: sanfran1 – Taylor Swift still performs at state fairs…



  19. 19

    She has always been a good singer. She did not make this her own in any way. She is not on the charts because it takes good original material these days. No one is writing for her. Maybe she should write her own about getting some of that Cibrian.



  20. 20

    Re: sanfran1 – I know right? I would like for her to stop sitting on the sidelines and start rebooting her career. She's so talented, it's sad to see that she's wasting her time and money on someone who will never be anything more than a low budget cable actor. Like The Playboy Club will even last a season… I mean hell, someone has to pay the bills and it's certainly not going to be him.



  21. 21

    Leann stole another Home-Wrecker's Thunder way-back; Trisha Yearwood had a song "How do I Live" and Leann recorded that song right under her….Leann STEALS from people; their music, their husbands, their ….



  22. 22

    Wow. Its time to move on from her past peepul! There are so few truly talented singers out there theze dayz with all the auto tuned highly engineered-can't sing live bullshiz. I guess you'd prefer Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton? I agree she never missed a note and was pitch perfect the entire song. Who cares if it was not her own stuff. I am a huge Adele fan and LeAnn did her proud. Why duz there have to be a "spin" put on a hauntingly emotional song in its purest form? I don't condone cheating, but I don't see Saint Angehyena and Brad, Amy Grant and Vince Gill, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermont continually receiving a beatdown… Gah, muuuv awn!!!!



  23. 23

    Decent cover but not as good as Adele. Anytime someone can sing acapella or close to it means they have talent.Personally I always prefer hearing the singers voice rather then the music. And the more sad the song is the more I like it. Im a whore for sadness. Music and movies.



  24. 24

    As soon as LeAnn tells an interviewer that she feels bullied, you start being nice to her.
    Hmmmm……



  25. 25

    I didn't watch the video. While LeAnn definitely has pipes, all I see when I look at her is someone who cheated on her husband with a married man, so I'll never be able to just enjoy her music. Image matters in that business; not just talent.



  26. 26

    One thing about her she sure the hell can sing. She may not have the best moral compass but she can belt out a tune..



  27. 27

    Attendance at Grand Island state fair = 70K Seating capacity at Omaha QWest concert venue = 18K… you do the mathRe: sanfran1 – These fairs in the mid west are insanely huge, and big for most country artists to book.



  28. 28

    Eddie didn't just cheat with LeA she has to be a very insecure woman, why would she think he wouldn't do it to her?

    That was great ! She can sing her ass off !



  30. 30

    I have always loved her voice. She sounds amazing. I just hate all the bad press she created for herself. It seems everyone is so quick to attack her. He's the one that left a wife and children. I guess they both deserve each other.



  31. 31

    Girl can sing!



  32. 32

    Not bad but Charlie and Emily top that! Just sayin'!



  33. 33

    Pretty ironic that she sing that song as she is a home wrecker herself :P But I have to admit, she has a great voice..nothing compare to Adele but still nice!



  34. 34

    Actually Leann recorded " How do I live" before Trisha Yearwood but the producers of the movie thought she was too young to sing such a heavy song. That said she has a wonderful voice!



  35. 35

    i like this better than adeles (she has a great voice, great but i also think when amy passed a lot of ppl noticed adele beacause of the comparisons)…So Leann made an error in her personal life…its time to move on…look at all the hubbys jlow has stolen and she CANT EVEN SING!! and she gets sympathy, a judging gig on a show abt vocal talent?? point is…why is Leann singled out?? she needs a big comeback album…



  36. 36

    I actually think that this is better than Adele's. Her voice really touched me, especially when she went into her head voice for "Don't forget me, I beg….." People focus so much on this girl's weight that we forget why America fell in love with her in the first place; her voice. I hope she comes out with an album soon. She should just sing very simple songs that just show the beauty of that voice. So clear and pristine. Thanks for posting, boy with the pink hair.



  37. 37

    Beautiful! Much better than Adele IMO and no disrespect to Adele, but Leanne does this much better. I wish Leanne the best and hope we'll hear more from her. It's time for another massive hit (Simon Cowell anyone?) As for her husband, well, everyone makes mistakes. Good luck to her.



  38. 38

    Whatever is going on in her personal life is none of my business…she's done a beautiful job covering the gorge Adele.



  39. 39

    That was alright. not amazing or anything… NOTHING compared to the original, obv.



  40. 40

    Honestly,. who cares about her personal life! She's not a reality star, she's a singer, and that's what makes her relevant in the industry. she has a great voice.



  41. 41

    Girl has honest to god talent.



  42. 42

    Adele made this song and it's one of my favorites. Had I heard it first with LeAnn singing, it would have done absolutely nothing for me as it does now. Leave it alone, LeAnn, and sing something original. It's too great a song to be flattened. Don't like her rendition AT ALL!



  43. 43

    No one can sing it as well as Adele purely because Adele wrote the song about her experience so brings emotion to it that is just on another level



  44. 44

    It's a shame with all the media about her personal life that people have forgotten how talented she really is but I suppose that is her own fault because she isn't exactly trying to keep her private life…private.



  45. 45

    I think people forgot she can belt it. You should hear her sing Crazy its amazing I would honestly still see her live I mean she can sing. Though I do find it weird that cheating killed her career yet someone else we all know can beat a superstar and still sell out shows. That's WTF right there.



  46. 46

    Re: sanfran1 – It really isn't uncommon to have a huge country artist perform at a fair, especially a State fair. Carrie Underwood performed at the West Virginia state fair not long ago. LeAnn has actually had a great career, a tad underrated, but a great career.



  47. 47

    I actually like this version better than Adele's. I'm not a huge Adele fan, and I've heard this song, but never actually loved it until I heard LeAnn sing it. This will be replacing the old version on my iPod.

    Oh, and her personal life is fine. So she accidentally fell in love on the set in a movie and is the happiest she's ever been? Who cares??



  48. 48

    Sanfran1: State Fairs for country artists is where most of them play in the summer. It's like playing a 'shed' or pavilion up north, so don't knock her unless you want to knock all the top country stars out there. As for her talent, that is what anything about her or any artist ought to be about. Not about who they marry, date, what thewy eat or wear… it's what they can do on stage or behind the scenes, or whatever their talent is. But gossip scum have to bring up all the needless BS.



  49. 49

    I forgot she could sing so well. Girl needs to just put a good album together like her first release. She's so talented.



  50. 50

    Fuck that bitch….please do NOT compare her to Adele. Adele is a loving, talented singer….this whore is a homewrecking bitch who needs to stop kidding herself…she is NOBODY…NOBODY LIKES HER….



  51. 51

    she is a very talented singer…too bad the media chooses not to focus their attention on that



  52. 52

    I always wonder whether artists are brave or stupid to cover an Adele song? Probably a bit of both. Leann sang it pretty good but, boy, those nasal tones got irritating.
