 Panic! At The Disco covered the one and only Adele during their show last night in Ventura, CA. The band has been posting polls on Facebook for their fans to vote on which cover song they should perform each night at their show, and last night the band took their turn at performing “Rolling in the Deep”!

Check out the band’s performance below!

Not too shabby! What do y’all think of Panic!’s Adele cover?

Video: Linkin Park Covers Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”

If you were to ask me which artist or band would be least likely to cover Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” I’m pretty sure Linkin Park would have been included on the list. Nevertheless, check out the band’s cover of “Rolling in the Deep” they recorded in Hamburg, Germany.

This is the power of a great and somewhat magical song. Everyone covers it. And hats off to Linkin Park, I think they did a pretty solid job with the song.

‘Glee’ Music Preview >> “Rolling in the Deep”

Check out a preview of the return of Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff) and his duet with Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) from tonight’s Glee.

I definitely like this duet in context of the show, and it’s definitely quite the entrance for Jonathan Groff’s return.

Glee’s “Prom Queen” airs tonight at 8 p.m. on FOX.

Dulling The Magic of “Rolling in the Deep” One Cover at a Time

Late this past Thursday night, the tracks for next week’s Glee episode “Prom Queen” leaked onto the interwebz. Included in next week’s batch of tracks is Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” which is sung by Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff as a duet.

This Glee cover is the latest in a string of “Rolling in the Deep” covers that have hit the web, since the song was released last fall.  One of the issues I have with all the covers of this song is that most of them pale in comparison to the original.

As someone that loves music, I feel like “Rolling in the Deep” could possibly be on it’s way to being played out. The fact that Glee is has now covered it says a lot. And I’m not gonna front, I was excited at first to hear that Glee was taking on the song. I love Lea and Jonathan’s voices together, and I thought the result was going to be this intensely passionate, angsty vocal performance from the two of them. The Glee version actually sounds like a take of the John Legend cover of the song. To be honest, I was expecting more of a rock vibe from them, instead of a gospel vibe.

Video: Tim Halperin Covers Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”

Tim Halperin returned to Kidd Kraddick’s radio show this morning to perform his rendition of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” as apart of “Idol Got It Wrong.”

Each week for “Idol Got It Wrong,” Tim is choosing a song to perform that one of the Idol contestants performed during that week’s show for your votes. If Tim gets more votes than the contestant that performed during the show, he performs again the following week. If the Idol contestant gets more votes, then he’s out. So basically vote for Tim, so we get these radtastic covers each week!  Sounds good, right?

This week Tim is taking on Haley Reinhart who performed Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” last night on Idol.

Check out Tim’s rendition of “Rolling In The Deep” below!

I think this is my favorite cover that Tim has done for “Idol Got It Wrong,” so far!  In particular, I really liked when he hit the larger notes in the chorus and went up into his falsetto range towards the end  of the song. Good stuff!

Obviously I’m a fan, but what did y’all think of Tim’s performance of “Rolling In The Deep”?
