Their marvelous duet from Jackie's PBS special "Awakening - In Concert".
Disturbed does it pretty badass, but I still like the Genesis version best.
Way better than the Genesis version
This cover is not better than the original! One Direction sucks dick!
This should be on the list of 'i needed a therapy after listening to this'
A Cream cover - better than the original. Just give a listen. - Metal_Treasure
Sounds very similar to the original to me. It's personal preference but I can't see how you claim it's definitively better. To me, for a cover version to be regarded as "better" than an original that is considered great it needs to have a significantly different take or add outstanding unique elements that enhance the song - and it's still a difficult attempt - Billyv
It's good, but not as great as the others
From "Game of Thrones", this has been covered by several other artists, but Jackie Evancho completely made it her own, and this version was formally released as a single by SONY Masterworks.
