Each contestant sang their own cover of "Grenade" by Bruno Mars, and in the end, the winners were...
Lion Named Roar for Best Group Performance. While many of you were impressed with Lawson's version of the song, Lion Named Roar came out on top as the best all-around sound, and I couldn't agree more, the vocals were great, the music was great, and the video was great. Congrats Lion Named Roar!
As for the Best Female Performance, Lisa Lavie won this hands down, her unique voice made it all the better for her in the end. Her strong vocals, accompanied with some great music, made it an even easier choice. Giving it her emotional best, Lisa was the clear choice. Congrats Lisa!
In the Best Male Performance category, it was the hot-looking "nerdy" guy, Alex Goot vs. the ever popular, Jason Chen. Alex definitely provided a shocking element to his performance, his voice! The music was amazing, his playing the guitar, the piano and the drums added to a great video performance as well. There definitely was no competing with Alex, he won this hands down. Congrats Alex!
For Best Teen Performance, my readers were stuck between two teenage boys who gave it their all, Marko Stantic and Jordan Jansen. In the end, Jordan took this home. His unique voice, the emotion he provided, and the video accompanying the song, garnered him enough votes to take home the Gold Record. Remarkable voice, remarkable performance, congrats Jordan!
Once again, here are your Cover War winners singing their cover to "Grenade"...
As promised, each winner will be sent an image of their Cover Wars "Gold Record." It's a fictional image of my Cover Wars logo and a Gold Album embedded in a black frame. I created this image specifically for this series.
This is also the first issue where I have sent the winner a personalized image of their Cover Wars album.
