Best YouTube Cover Artists

The Top Ten
Boyce Avenue

My love for these boys is immeasurable! I Love Boyce Avenue with all my heart. Alejandro sweetest angel voice I've ever seen, Fabian and Daniel.. Two people with an amazing talent. I love very much these guys des the first time I saw them singing with Fifth Harmony was passion at first sight, I spent a month researching videos of the band, things about them, anyway. They are undoubtedly not one the best covers of the world, they are so good that even some songs that they sing other artists arrive get better in their voice, the way they have... I LOVE BOYCE AVENUE hope to have the honor of You know them someday.

Boyce Avenue is the best YT Cover Artist because:
- They do covers of songs you didn't ever think it could be covered
- The most covers are better than the original (if you like acoustic sounds)
- They do so much with very little things (most there is only a guitar and a cajon)
- They play the covers very emotional and natural. When I look a clip, I often think I can see in Alejandros soul.
- They look very symphatic in the clips
- Listening to their covers makes me feel contently

Are you crazy? This guys are great not just by the voice, but the quality of the covers. Every single has a special taste of the boyce avenue. It is not about prettiest, or smiles in the videos, or make you smile while you see the video, it is about quality, voice. The songs never disapoint you. BEST COVER EVER

What can I say? Every word that I know is so little to describe them... Awesome musicians. Lovely sounds. Amazing people. Much love for them and if somebody didn't know them please take a minute and listen to them, I promise that you will like them

zeldaxlove64 (Christina Grimmie)

RIP Christina Grimmie... Inspired me so much even though I discovered her after the tragic news. I started to play the piano and sing due to her and that I will never be able to meet my idol (well I hope I will be able to meet her I heaven) breaks my heart. She was so talented, realistic and down to earth unlike lots of other singers. Well she is singing for Jesus now and she must be really happy...

She is real. It's just her and her piano, up front. No recording and editing or anything, it's all live and in her house. She's also coming out with her second album full of originals and she's come so far. She's definitely inspired many people to sing, that they don't need anything technical to be noticed.

Christina is my hero. She is so amazing and so pretty. She deserves to be at the top. She inspires people to do amazing things. She works hard and every new video I find, I share with my friends. I hope she ends up being recognized for the amazing things she can do. Best singer I've ever listened to.

I have been subscribed to Christina for over a year now, and with every song she has never failed to disappoint. Her vocals are always amazing and she is a natural born performer. She will surely have a future in the business, well deserved.

Madilyn Bailey Madilyn Bailey is an American singer songwriter from Wisconsin who became famous internationally through her YouTube covers of popular hits.

One of the most unique voice I've ever heard. SO BEAUTIFUL! Her interpretation and music production are also awesome. She's no more an unknown little YouTuber girl. She's such a talented ARTIST! Definitely deserved to be easily on top 3. (And.. it's my personal opinion but.. Megan Nicole just looks pretty and has a cute, girly voice, but that's all. She has nothing on Mady. Megan is nothing special at all. Too generic.. A great artist should be iconic, like Mady does. )

Her songs make me CRY! She's a beautiful singer! She makes us all connect to her music in a way that no other singer can do. She knows how to make you understand the meaning of the song. She gives you a reason for the song to have meaning. She makes her songs sound better than it was originally sang! You go Mads!

A million times better than Megan Nicole. I like Megan, but the best studio in the world couldn't make her sound better than Madilyn recording herself on her laptop. Disappointed in this positioning. Definitely deserve to be number one.

Maddy is amazing! She produces every song with so much emotion and power. She makes every song out there sound great when she sings them and you can tell her singing is genuinely from the heart. Madilyn is the best!

megannicolesite (Megan Nicole)

She is the best YouTube artist. Megan is not only pretty, she is really talented. I had the chance to meet her last year and she is basically the sweetest girl I have ever met. And her live singing is incredible, she gives so much energy on scene, that's crazy. I can't wait for her next tour and album!

Disappointing in this rating. Megan only sings autotuned karaoke and does not play any instruments while most of the people on this list completely reproduce the songs from scratch or mix them up and use no auto tune. I don't think Megan should be considered a cover artist when she never makes any songs her own.

She is just too good. She is the most beautiful girl in the world and she is the best singer I ever listen. Everyday I listen to her song. She is the most beautiful singer in YouTube. She has a nice voice and she is so cute. Love you very very much megan and I will always support you. Love you.SUMMER FOREVER

She is the most beautiful singer in YouTube! All she does - all her videos and covers are amazing, full of passion and heart! This is what I want to listen to and Megan gives it to me every time! She really rocks

TheSamTsui (Sam Tsui)

Sam's voice is so clean and transparent, that it is simply a pleasant to listen to. He is not monotonic, however, for he has just the right amount of brittleness at the right moments for the right duration. Everything adds up to his powerful conveyance of emotions, which touches my heart every single time.

Sam is such an inspiration! Why? 1) He has an amazing voice 2) Also amazing and meaningful original songs 3) He is so talented! He can sing, write own songs, he can draw (amazingly good) and he can dance 4) He has humor and he is really funny 5) He is the nicest Person ever and loves his fans more than anything!

Sam Tsui has a great voice. He has the ability to change any song and cover it in a completely different way and still able to make it sound really nice. Also, his album "Make It Up" features a broad range of his original written songs.

Makes each and every cover his own, collaborates perfectly with ANYBODY, brilliant performer with outstanding talent and promise! :) He can easily bring out the best in any song! He continues to deliver perfect songs month after month and managed to graduate at Yale too?!

Kurt Hugo Schneider Kurt Hugo Schneider (Born September 7th 1988) is an American musician and producer, best known for his works on YouTube and collaborations on music with other YouTubers, most notably Sam Tsui.

Well let me see here what can I say about him. Well as others have said he can play any instrument, can sing, produce, and is a good host to other singers. Oh by the way he is a chess grandmaster just thought I'd have to add that in he is very talented. He is very special and the reason he is special is because he is very savant (means he demonstrates certain abilities far from the average person). WHY IS HE #6 HE DESERVES BETTER COME ON

Kurt makes covers of videos gracefully.He is my top you-tuber. He sings very often but produces music that is more amazing and beautiful. He try to create sounds from m&m's,cups,sticks,etc.he can play any instruments u give. He has a great talent and an intelligent sense of make videos loved by his viewers. He make covers with artists like Sam Tsui and other great artists. I am an Indian and I even like him because he being an american come to India 2 to 3 times. Oh he is amazing and his shows and videos are awesome. You should have kept him in the top place. He even do mashups which are more fantastic. Guys now go to YouTube and check his videos and don't forget to leave a vote.

Kurt plays a lot of instruments. He can sing, do terrific arrangements for songs and covers and produces songs. Plus, he is better when it comes to difficult circumstances and is more logical when it hits his face right on.

I'm biased by his singing, haha.

I'm shocked that Kurt is #10. I mean he is good on instruments. I know that he does a little singing but without him, I think everything will be like the original song they covered. Kurt produces music so good that it will make the song even more beautiful.

Chrissy Costanza (Against the Current) Christina "Chrissy" Costanza (Born 23rd August 1995) is an American musician and internet blogger, known for her works as a cover artist on YouTube and as the lead vocalist of the New York-based Pop Rock/Pop Punk band Against the Current.

I started my journey to listening Hollywood songs through Chrissy by a lucky coincidence and she has not disappointed ever. You should be on the top of the list!

Woah, why does Chrissy is the top 7 and Tiffany is the 6th? It looks like Chrissy is better than Tiffany! Her voice is better than Tiffany and Chrissy can make covers of different genres like pop, rock, acoustic, etc. Their cover of Find You and Shake It Off are way better than Tiffany. Chrissy is still pretty without make-up. Anyway, I still love you Tiffany you're also amazing but I'd rather choose Chrissy.

People think her singing is too auto tuned and she's just a pretty girl, but they are so wrong. Yes Chrissy is pretty, but her singing is amazing! I have personally been to Against the Current concert and her singing was fabulous! Her covers and original songs are over the top awesome. Along with that she's an amazing person. She's so nice and she's so unique and quirky, it's so awesome!

I can NEVER get enough of her. She's like a drug, her voice is beyond amazing, her personality is the best. Her beauty is unbelievable, and nobody- NOBODY- is as perfect as she is. And like some people say, no she's not getting famous just because a she's hot, she is getting famous because she is perfect. She truly came from the heavens (I'm atheist I mean heavens just as like unhumanly perfect. ) Chrissy is life!

cimorellitheband (Cimorelli)

Cimorelli are some of the most talented girls I know! Their music touches the hearts of many people and changes their life for the better. I've never come across a band who care so much for their fans as well as having fun and being their selves. Cimorelli have helped me through some really hard time and dark places as well as making me stronger and taught me how to feel good about myself, they have honestly saved my life! I don't know where I would be with out them! I will always love and be thankful to Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren and Dani (Cimorelli)

These girls are so many people's number one inspiration and they make me so many people happy. Whenever I'm feeling down I can listen to their music and I immediately feel better. Also, their fans mean the world to them and they always try to brighten their fan's days by DMing them on Twitter or even something as simple as tweeting something positive or inspirational. They have changed my life and I wouldn't take that back for the world

I am currently listening to Cimorelli as I am typing this. All I can say is that I absolutely love them and they are all so inspirational. Lauren is the best singer out of all of them. People always give all the credit to Lisa. In my eyes Lauren shines the brightest.

They all have amazing, talented voices. Yes, they do use autotune sometimes, but if you watch the "SIng Anything Challenges" and some other videos, they don't have any autotune. And Lisa? Whoo! She's so good.

TiffanyAlvord (Tiffany Alvord)

Her voice is so clear and beautiful. I love how she wrote songs herself instead of just doing covers. I wish I had her voice seriously it is so pure and amazing. LOVE HER. Megan Nicole and Tiffany are the best

She has the sweetest voice than Megan nicole which it made her unique, and Megan Nicole Has a low voice or alto for the level of her voice..Megan can't express herself using high pitch

Tiffany is a very talented artist. She has a calm, unique voice that can be easily recognized. Her cover-songs are truly impressive and I think she has a bright future ahead

She has a beautiful voice and a grate style! She sings well with others and has potential to be a grate song writer! I think she is the best! and don't know why she isn't more popular?

Gabrielle Aplin Gabrielle Aplin is an English singer-songwriter. Aplin came to public attention after she gained a large online following by posting acoustic covers of songs on her YouTube channel.

So amazing. She should be way higher than she is (no offense to any of the other artists. I love them all! ) such an amazing singer! So much soul, you can really feel the emotion in her words!

Underrated but really really talented. She deserves to be higher than this, obviously.

Amazing singer. really! That's why she got picked for the john lewis Christmas advert 2013

The Contenders
Sarah Close (SarahClose1)

She sings a variety of different songs. From the top ten to artists I have never heard of before. Her voice is stunning. I could listen to her every second of every day. Every time I see a new video of hers pop up on my feed my mood instantly brightens because I know it will be good.

Sarah is amazing. Her voice is beautiful, and she does everything live! Look at her bloopers and you'll see how good she truly is. She also has an amazing personality

Absolutely amazing voice and personality. She really makes the songs her own.

Best covers ever heard, sometimes even prefer the cover to the original song

Alex Goot

He uses variety of instruments and what's MORE?! His music is HOMEMADE! His music is too rich that you can (even if it sound impossible) hear a lot of sound that really produces MUSIC! He revolutionize every cover he makes!

He got the feelings. He's more on passion and not just showing off. NOT LIKE CHRISSY COSTANZA. I hope he'll stop making collaborations with her. Instead he can do it with boyce avenue and tiffany alvord

Alex goot is really cool. I think he's really great at what he does, and super passionate, and very talented. It shows clearly in his videos. Like, that's amazing.

His voice is incredible and pretty soft. Love him. But, please don't say bad things about Chrissy Costanza (as the comment below) because I also like her.

Nick Pitera

Have your heard him change from a man to a woman voice, stunning

His vocal range is so good

Craziest range ever!

Annie-Rose
Daniela Andrade

I first came upon her voice while watching an episode of "Suits" and they were using her cover of "Crazy" (Seal). I immediately Shazam'ed the song to find out who the amazing voice belonged to. Now she's on repeat in my playlist!

What why so low on the list a top 10 for sure..she has a sweet voice that shows vulnerability just listen to her cover of thinking about you by Frank ocean

Whoever doesn't like her is because they haven't heard her. Just go listen to her you guys. Shes an angel. She should be on the top 10, if not the top 1!

What why this low on the list..at least a top 10 sweet vocie to shows heart and vulnerability just listen to her cover of thinking about you by frank ocean

Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

Comments be saying he's hot, but GUESS WHAT? You can't complement his singing because he sings thru his nose. What makes a good cover artist is the fact that they can do something unique to a song to make it their own (which, other than nasal vocals, he doesn't do). Jade Novah should be on this list, not vanilla like this. Every cover seems to be better than the original, she makes you love songs you previously hated, and she deserves so much more credit than she gets. Her range, runs and control are just flawless and she even has personality unlike this guy.

What! Is Shawn Mendes the 16? Why? Nooo, my boy is mora than the 16th position. He is the number one. He is on tour with Taylor Swift, but he is in the 16th position. What! Impossible. There's an error or something because he is the best one on this chart! His voice is amazing, beautiful and his songs are very originals and interestings. He has to be in the number one.

Shawn has absolutely changed my life for the better. He's taught me that anything is possible, even for someone as young as he is. He has one of the most unique voices in the music world. He definitely should be higher up on this chart."

If you think his singing is good, you need help. His voice is nasal and annoying. His technique sucks and his looks are the only thing carrying him. Cue the defensive, offended, weirdly devoted fans. I will be praying for your ears.

Kina Grannis

I really love Kina Grannis and her songs especially Cambridge. I just love how her voice soothes me whenever I feel down. Even though the songs are a little bit depressing, it somehow manages to lift my spirits up. Weird, huh? But that's the reason why she is a great singer.

She truly deserve to be in top 10 any day
I would rather say top 5 artist of YouTube!
Kina is really awesome!

She definitely deserves to be in top 10. Her songs are incredibly amazing!

She's awesome in everyway especially her voice! No one could beat that

ThePianoGuys

God they are 5 oldies who are so so talented...first time I ever heard one of their covers was the 1d song (I'm a girl but not into much of 1d) and I was literally like, O-M-G. It was absolutely mindblowing...at 1st I used to think that it was better than the original but lets just say the original can never be beaten ( mostly for the effort)...maybe I LOVED the cover so much because I like the piano idea more...I love their covers ThePianoGuys are amazing...they know absolutely what they are doing and all the piano-ish instruments harmonizing together make each cover awesome. Their might be better in this list but my vote would probably be for these 5 men who has been so inspirational and always will be for me.

They are amazingly talented in the way that they put their songs together. And not only do they have great covers and mash-ups, they have very cool and visually pleasing videos on the planet!

Some of the best musical talent on YouTube. Their covers are just as good as original songs, and they should totally go on a concert. Go buy their album now. They are seriously amazing.

How did this not make the list? Some of the most talented musicians in the world contribute and an auto tuned karaoke singer is number one?

Ahmir

This site is rigged - no matter how many times I vote thumbs up it never adds it! Rigged!

Covers the best artists in the world

There awesome

Mike Masse

Amazing singer and wonderful human at that. And some praise for his fellow singers, Jeff Hall and Sterling Cottam! I was hooked after seeing Mike's cover of Africa by Toto, which has been confirmed to be better than the original by their actual lead singer. Come on! Mike, Jeff and Sterling all have an incredible range and do perfect harmonies. I'm fairly sure his music will be among our favourites for a long time. I think his version of Creep (both on YouTube and real life) will just continue to give me goosebumps. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us Mike.

Mike is one of the best on Youtube. From his nearly flawless delivery of a cover song to the near perfect sound quality. I have never been disappointed with any cover song Mike and Jeff and friends have presented us. It's not just turn on the camera and play hoping it sounds ok, Mike puts a lot of work and effort into these videos and it shows. The only thing better would be a collaboration between Mike and Puddles Pity Party.

Radiohead, Rolling Stones, Beatles, U2, you name it. Mike Masse is the most underrated singer/songwriter/cover artist on YouTube. His versions are extremely close to the originals and he remains faithful even to vocal phrasing and turns in each song. If you haven't heard him yet, you're being deprived.

His voice and song interpretation is impeccable. Definitely been a massive influence on my playing and always find myself going back through his covers! Particularly love the old live videos in the pizza place as it just shows how amazing a musician he really is!

Superfruit Aka Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying

I. Love. Mitch. And. Scott. THEY ARE AMAZING! Mitch is the QUEEN! I don't know why Pentatonix doesn't get much love. They are amazing! I found them when my sister was doing a choir. I'm actually listening to them right now. I ESPECIALLY love Imagine. My friends said they were going through a "pentatonix phase" and I joined them, and here I am now, looking up excuses to show how amazing they are. I learned two parts to the White Winter Hymnal (Scott ad Mitch). I am absolutely in Love with them. I hate how they get so much hate! My sister hates Mitch and I'm like: Bro. RAWRR! They really are amazing and deserve so much more love. #ScottAndMitchTeamSlay!

YES! Mitch and Scott are amazing when they do covers of songs! They are now singing their own songs, and have released the album Future Friends.
Mitch and Scott are amazing in millions of ways, and I love their YouTube channel!

These guys are SUPER talented. I know, they're from ptx and I'm so glad that ptx is so high on this list but SUPERFRUIT is like an extra channel on their own. They have 2 medley kind of covers that have gained millions of views and they are just all around AWESOME.

Liam Horne

LOVE LOVE LOVE THEIR MUSIC. So glad they're getting known, original songs are the best, love how she raps, her style, everything. Huge Fan. Recomend it a 100%. My favourites are Your Love, Look at me now, Hello, Brokenhearted and Coming up strong. AMAZING MUSIC.

She got her start on YouTube, and continues to this day. See her duet of "Hallelujah" with Peter Hollens. Over 1.6 million views.

See also her performance of "Bridge Over Troubled Water"- only on YouTube. Over 2 million views.

I love her! She pours her emotions into her song and I believe that with much as in much practice, she could be in Justin's league even though we know Justin is in a league of his own

"Can You Feel the Love Tonight" at the 2013 Independence Day concert. Over 4 million views (and a cast of thousands)

What a treat! Jackie put her entire Milwaukee concert on her YouTube channel!
