The Original : Movie Version
The Bellas rock this number in the movie bringing many members in the audience to tears. It's a very powerful number lighting up the entire audience (literally) in the movie. I could listen to them sing this song a million times. Can we also talk about how much we LOVE Anna Kendrick? Swooon.
The Original : Jessie J
Jessie J is in fact the original singer for the soundtrack even though the Bellas sing the song in the movie. She gives a very refreshing take on the song since it is ultimately hers. We see a storyline between a couple on a college campus that ends happily ever after.
Is there anything this girl can't do? She's a YouTuber from California who rose to fame by posting haul videos which basically show her recent purchases. She has a book, a killer DIY presence online, and her own clothing line. AND SHE CAN SING. She's definitely a winner, no doubt. This is probably one of my favorite covers out of all of them.
Megan Nicole has been around the music YouTube area for as long as I can remember. She only covers the top pop hits but nails them each and every time. She's cute as a button and her music videos are the perfect match. She just recently hit 3M subscribers on YouTube and is on an North American music tour!
Hailee Steinfeld may look familiar because she was in fact in the movie! She has a really beautiful tone to her voice as it is, so it's no wonder she stripped it down to her and acoustics. Steinfeld got the A-list star treatment when Taylor Swift asked her to be in her music video. SHE'S A BIG DEAL.
Boys who can sing? WIN. These dudes are making sure that they will have the ladies and guys melting in their seats. They were also in Pitch Perfect 2 bringing their YouTube fans to the movie. They are Filipino-American and got their claim to fame on NBC's hit seasonal competition, "The Sing Off".
Jessie J Fans
A viral sensation to hit the internet days after the movie was when fans could submit videos of them singing with Jessie J. It's so realistic and if you had not read that prior sentence, you would have never known that Jessie J's part is not live, it's actually just a pre-recording. However, Tom Bleasby won the hearts of America when he outshined Jessie J. Zendee's version is also just as wonderful. Bravo!
