I've fallen in a YouTube hole of "Let it Go" covers. And really, I have so many more important things to do and articles to write and encroaching deadlines. There are a lot of terrible off-pitch covers all over YouTube though "The Worst" of the covers is obviously Demi Lovato's. Many covers are kind of good but i'm not quite sure about them and there's even a drag version or two one with very hit and miss jokes (but the "the fears that once controlled me" bit in Dixie Lynn Cartwright's is priceless)
But these six I find impressive.
Elizabeth Saw with just the piano and played by ear... which is so cool because it's not exact but the flourishes feel right
Jun Sung Angh with just a violin
And the best vocals I've heard apart from Idina...
Sonnet Son - no mic, editing, no autotuning but very strong
Caleb Hyles has some impressive control of the vocal shifts between his higher register and normal voice
And the best mega-budgeted version is this Africanized Tribal Cover. Seriously someone spent lots of bank. Sets, a huge choir, costume changes.
And finally the best multi-voiced cover from the always delightful Christina Blanco who we've raved about before.
