Here's another unorthodox take for ya! Rita Ora "covered" the Adele song while on Capital FM. Too intimidated to actually do the thing, she sort of made-up her own lyrics. Seriously. It kicks off at the 1:20 mark in the video above.
How do you know if your cover actually measures up to the queen Adele? It goes viral! So goes life in 2015: When "Hello" officially dropped, a few days went by before the world became completely obsessed with this clip of a Korean teen covering the single. Apparently she's a student at the Seoul Music High School, but no one has been able to identify her yet, despite over 11 million YouTube views.
Chloe Paige is currently belting her heart out on the U.K.'s version of the X Factor, and if we're being completely honest here, she's totally killing it. She was also one of the few people on this planet brave enough to attempt "Hello" live, and she did a kick-ass job.
Conor Maynard is another self-made singer-songwriter, and rose to prominence when he won MTV's Brand New award in 2012 (Justin Bieber received the title in 2010, if you need some reference point.) With his cover of "Hello" in 2015, we see big things for the guy in the near future.
Mendes is still on the cover game, too! His "Hello" has some of his personality drizzled in there, and takes us back to the early days of Shawn's Internet fame.
Not to be confused with the contemporary clothing company of the same name, Alice Olivia is something of a one-woman business herself: The up-and-coming singer-songwriter has pipes that don't quit. Fast forward to the one-minute mark--the power is undeniable.
Jade Novah describes her sound as the intersection of R&B and musical theater, and she's not wrong. Her dynamic showmanship comes across in this cover of "Hello," one that has a surprise twist: Near the end, she sings "The Hanging Tree" from the Hunger Games, the very same that put Jennifer Lawrence on the music map.
