As we're gearing up for our big SXSW party this weekend, we happily took a couple of hours out to go through each submission in our latest "Can YOU Sing" cover competition!
We are LOVING that bands, duos and producers are now entering - as well as solo artist. And we really really really love the many different ways each artist made Katy Perry's new single, Part Of Me, their own.
If Gotye covered Part Of Me, we'd imagine it was a bit like this!
Listen to it below AND….
Check out all the honorable mentions… after the jump!!!

Moody!!! Lindsa Harrison gave us Fiona Apple meets Kate Bush with her take on the song! Check it out below!!
Props to Jeremy Thurber, who will make the ladies swoon with his cover! Check it out (below)! Work that falsetto!
