Solo - winner

Oh my god. I cried. You have an incredible and unique voice! I LOVED the video, so original! And the vocal arrangement, especially what you did with the bridge, was stunning!
Such an inventive interpretation of the song… I loved the instrumentation and your commitment to the emotion of the song.
I love this entry! My absolute winner. So imaginative and – like Sara B herself – totally quirky. A great sense of humor paired with terrific musicianship.

 

 

Collab - winner

Oh my god I LOVE THIS!!!! So cool what you guys did with the melody. The track sounds amazing too. Really cool parts. You totally made it your own. It makes me want to hear more of your stuff! CHILLS City after the bridge!
Such a smart rendition of this song. I loved the half time feel throughout and there was a really beautiful arch to the production.
I love the mood of this cover. It takes a romantic song and pairs it with a darker, eerier atmosphere. I really like that contrast. It’s aggressive and laid back at once. Love it!

 

 

Solo - finalists

 

AMAZING voice and playing! I got chills many times!
Such a spot on version of the song. A very powerful voice and great musicality.
This cover is terrific. There’s something really haunting about her version - especially the bridge. The way she goes back and forth between a resonant chest voice to a lighter, breathier head voice is fantastic. Great work!
You have a great voice! Technically perfect! And I’m very impressed with the track you built! Totally badass run at the end…
Great job with the production and a really strong voice.
VOICE!!! This guy can sing! On top of that, it’s so encouraging to see a young guy taking on a female artist’s song and tackling it with such success
Gorgeous voice! You also picked my second favorite song!
My favorite! Gorgeous, powerful, unique voice and a delivery so genuine that that could be YOUR song. It was a beautiful performance.
A terrific straightforward cover. A clear understanding of the song and a nicely understated presentation. Plus, I like the Christmas stockings.
I like what you did with the piano part!

 

A very emotional performance, and interesting chord choices.
What a cool take on this song. I love the more legato piano arrangement. She has a nice direct, no frills quality to her voice that I really dig. And she adds some really cool riffs!
Good job building the track! This is my favorite song! Cool video too!
Cute video - and great job with the production. Love the reverb!
I think this is the hardest of the songs to cover! It’s so etherial and haunting sounding. She handles it with the ease of a pro! Her voice is so seamless and easy sounding. It’s like she’s not even trying. Well done!

 

Collab - finalists

 

Cool! Incredible. So beautiful. I’m in awe.

 

Gorgeous! The production choices were really effective and engaging and all of the vocals were just beautiful. There was a really steady crescendo throughout the whole piece that really pulled me in. Well done!
I’m a sucker for an A Cappella group, particularly one as polished as this. Super clean harmonies. A great lead vocalist. Nice production value. All in all, a solid contribution and worthy of the win!
Awesome arrangement! You guys sound great! Cute ending!!
Love the color coordination - you guys look adorable! Very expressive and creative harmonies. Loved hearing an acapella version of this song.
There is something so impressive to me about three people singing a cappella! And what a cool take on the song. Love it!
Amazing what you guy can do live! That’s not easy. The video looks amazing too…really cool aesthetic.
I love how you made the track your own. The way you set up the percussion at the top was inventive and original…
I really appreciate the paired down quality of this cover. It’s got a super organic, unprocessed feel. I love the looping and the simple piano part. Plus, the girls sound great.
You guys are so super cute! And sound so beautiful together!
I could feel how much fun you three were having singing together, which made me really enjoy your interpretation of the song. And great harmonizing.
The thing I love about this cover is how charming it is. The ukelele, the hand claps, the drums. It’s all so wonderfully casual and fun. Plus they sound terrific.
Cool vocal harmony ideas!!

 

beautiful harmonies, great energy and emotion in the choruses!
I love that they chose Parking Lot. This song is tough and they nailed it. There’s a raw, determined quality to their cover that I think is wonderful. But they never sacrifice vocal quality. Well done!
