Best Covers of Pitch Perfect Hit 'Flashlight'

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.

Bethany Mota

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

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

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.

The Filharmonic

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!

BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?
Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us: TROPICAL HOUSE. It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song! It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15. That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music! Here are some more examples if you dig that sound: Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!! Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. Kygo - Stay Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears. Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are Ü Now This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse. Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy. Jamie XX - Loud Places And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen. Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music! Enjoy!
AMAs 2014: Ladies' Night
Step aside boys, 2014 is all about the kick-ass female performers. I'll recount my 5 favorite, but really everyone from Charlie XCX to Selena Gomez brought the house down. While the boys of 1D and 5SOS were snatching up the big awards, these fabulous ladies were killing it onstage (where it really matters, right?) 5. Selena Gomez makes everyone cry like a baby Selener performs her new song about a rocky relationship (hey Biebs) and actually brings the audience to tears - or maybe just Taylor Swift, but still, great performance! 4. Lorde's 4 minute performance was more exciting than the 2 hour Hunger Games film. Enough said. Watch the clip. 3. Jessie J is fabulous as usual: No one has pipes like JJ and she knows it. She casually runs around the audience hitting notes that she just should not be able to hit. And then to top it off, Nicki and Ariana join her to complete the power pack for Bang Bang. (Sorry for the bad quality, but just LISTEN to that voice!) 2. Iggy wins the “first award I’ve ever won in [her] whole life,” and then slays next to Charlie XCX - like, actually slays. 1. Taylor Swift actually goes insane onstage So before you watch it here's what you should look out for: - She sets herself on fire, then puts it out with her bare hands - She descends from the ceiling in a picture frame and dining room table - She throws a grown man across the stage - She may or may not have sneered in Harry Style's direction but who can be sure ;) Watch it here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2awi3t_taylor-swift-blank-space-live-at-american-music-awards-2014_music
Korean Girls Try Mexican Soda For The First Time!
Just when that whole YouTube trend of sampling foods from different cultures was losing its sparkle to me, Digitalsoju TV had to go ahead and introduce Korean girls to Jarritos. I've been wanting to write a card about Jarritos for a while now, as it's one of those Mexican sodas that are an essential part of the culture of Mexican cuisine. Sure, you can talk about Baja California seafood or the delicious carnes of central Mexico's ranching region, but what would that deliciousness be without a cold, fizzy Jarritos on the side? If you don't know Jarritos, it's an incredibly popular Mexican soda brand that's made with cane sugar and comes in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, guava, pineapple, and tamarind. In this video, the girls end up sampling the pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and guava flavors, but how does Jarritos translate in the Land of the Morning Calm? Let's look! Like any good soda, the first thing they notice is it's full of sugar. And then they all realize they're obsessed with the guava one. My favorite was the homegirl going too hard on the grapefruit. This one had her ranking all figured out. Does it match yours? Overall, these girls all agreed that Jarritos was delicious - and would be even more delicious mixed with a little vodka! You can check out their FULL commentary - plus their opinion on Squirt! - in the embedded video above. And then let me know: What's YOUR favorite Mexican soda flavor? And if you haven't tried Jarritos before, which flavor would YOU want to try? @bangtanboysfan1 @AnnahiZaragoza @fabiola12fb @abiersack666 @YeseniaLira @DianaKpop58 @reyestiny93 @AdaliaMartinez @exokpop12385 @michellefuentes @perlaaraujo73 @jessicacruz1480 @DulceOjeda @giselacampos14 @wuyifanslover @nevershoutnancy @mirandazamira @jooheony @YeseniaF @SunnyV @IlseJimenez @KpopGaby @NelyJoss @aabxo @aliciasalinas @ThyaremyCreator @Cuetlatchli @Sunflower18 @purplem00n23 @jannatd93 @Luci546 @ALEXCAMACHO @TehDL @buddyesd @JocelynPacheco @SarahRegulski @MyAffairWith @FelipeZambrano @LindaGuandique @KassyGuz96 @XDLP @alywoah @FelipeZambrano
