Before The Fame: 10 Of Our Favourite Artists’ Covers!

What happens every time one of our favourite artists’ songs make it to the radio? Covers, covers everywhere. People will put their own spin on their songs, and post them online for the world to see. Well, how would you like to see some of their covers before  making it onto the airwaves or TV screens? Grab some tissues-here’s a roundup of our favourite covers by our favourite artists!

10. Cody Simpson: “Senorita”, Justin Timberlake

What a throwback. This wouldn’t be his first time singing about brown eyes.

9. Darren Criss: “Part Of Your World”, Jodi Benson

Blaine Anderson, is that you? You know it’s old when he mentions MySpace. That hair gives us life.

8. Cody Carson: “Coffee Shop Soundtrack”, All Time Low

This was the cover that started it all, leading to All Time Low inviting him to join them onstage for this song! We’re also loving the hoodie over the hat.

7. Luke Hemmings (5 Seconds of Summer): “Fireflies”, Ron Pope

Ah, the days of hemmo1996. We’ll never forget that fringe or the pink speakers either.

6. Calum Hood (5 Seconds of Summer): “All About You”, McFly

Well, the black and white isn’t helping with the nostalgia. We’re not crying. You’re crying.

5. Christina Grimmie: “Catch Me”, Demi Lovato

Here, we see Christina Grimmie absolutely wowing us with her skill with only a keyboard and her voice. Zeldaxlove64 forever.

4.  Tori Kelly: “Halo”, Beyonce

Who doesn’t love a little bit of Beyonce? Tori definitely did the song justice.

3. Shawn Mendes: “Hometown Glory”, Adele

“HiI’mShawnAndThisIsGunnaBeACoverOf breathes HometownGloryByAdele.” Same.

2. Conor Maynard: “Use Somebody”, Kings of Leon

Even way back in 2010, Conor was covering amazing songs on his YouTube channel. Little did he know, he’d be rolling out a few hits of his own.

1. Justin Bieber: “I’ll Be”, Edwin McCain

You didn’t really think we’d forget kidrauhl, now did you? There are certain songs that’ll make you melt. Pair that up with young Justin Bieber’s endearing voice, and you’re set.
