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!!!
Congrats to Michaela Kaser for her torch song reinterpretation of Part Of Me. Vocally she remind us of Robyn - and that's a great thing! Check it out (below)!
Smooth!!!! Michael Minelli delivered a sultry R&B version of the song! Check out the seksiness below!
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!
And, last, but certainly not least is… Cape Cadets, who bring an Ed Sheeran vibe to the tune! Love the original lyrics! Love the unexpectedness throughout, like adding the female vocalist! Very very lovely! Check it out below!
Although the 36-year-old celebrated her birthday privately over the weekend, she did make several public appearances this week: once getting froyo with Jonathan Cheban on Monday, followed by two trips to Kanye West's performances at The Forum both Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
