So yes, a true head-to-head-to-head Battle Round!
Over the past couple of weeks, Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know‘ hit #1 on iTunes and was covered by Lindsey Pavao on The Voice, Darren Criss and Matt Bomer on Glee, and Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips on American Idol. I can’t wait for someone to cover it on The X Factor in a few months! Or even America’s Got Talent!
Update: Pentatonix from The Sing-Off also did a cover. I’ve updated the poll.
So who sang it best? Take the poll:
Darren Criss and Matt Bomer
Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips
Personally, among the covers, I will have to go with my girl Lindsey Pavao as the best and Elise and Phillip’s easily the worst. But really, nothing has been close to the original so far. Maybe The X Factor will deliver?
