Top 10 Best YouTube Cover Artists

The Top Ten
1 Boyce Avenue

My love for these boys is immeasurable! I love Boyce Avenue with all my heart. Alejandro has the sweetest angel voice I've ever heard, and Fabian and Daniel are two people with amazing talent. I've loved these guys since the first time I saw them singing with Fifth Harmony. It was passion at first sight. I spent a month researching videos of the band and learning things about them.

They are undoubtedly one of the best cover artists in the world. They are so good that even some songs they cover become better in their voices. I love Boyce Avenue and hope to have the honor of meeting them someday.

Are you crazy? These guys are great, not just for their voice, but the quality of their covers. Every single one has a special taste of Boyce Avenue. It's not about being the prettiest, or smiles in the videos, or making you smile while you watch the video. It's about quality, voice. The songs never disappoint you. BEST COVER EVER

2 Christina Grimmie (zeldaxlove64)

RIP Christina Grimmie... She inspired me so much even though I discovered her after the tragic news. I started to play the piano and sing because of her, and the fact that I will never be able to meet my idol (well, I hope I will be able to meet her in heaven) breaks my heart. She was so talented, realistic, and down to earth, unlike many 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. There's no recording and editing. 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, showing them that they don't need anything technical to be noticed.

Christina is my hero. She is so amazing and 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.

3 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 voices 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 in the 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. 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 they were originally sung! 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 deserves to be number one.

4 Megan Nicole (megannicolesite)

She is the best YouTube artist. Megan is not only pretty, but she is also 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 stage, it's crazy. I can't wait for her next tour and album!

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

She is the most beautiful singer on 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 delivers it every time. She really rocks.

5 Sam Tsui (TheSamTsui)

Sam's voice is so clean and transparent that it is simply a pleasure to listen to. He is not monotonous. Instead, 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) He has amazing and meaningful original songs. 3) He is so talented! He can sing, write his own songs, draw (amazingly well), and dance. 4) He has humor and 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 while still making it sound really nice. Also, his album "Make It Up" features a broad range of his original written songs.

6 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.

Kurt makes graceful covers of videos. He is my top YouTuber. He sings very often but produces music that is even more amazing and beautiful. He tries to create sounds from M&M's, cups, sticks, etc. He can play any instrument you give him. He has great talent and an intelligent sense of making videos loved by his viewers. He makes covers with artists like Sam Tsui and other great artists. I am Indian, and I even like him because he, being an American, has come to India two to three times. Oh, he is amazing, and his shows and videos are awesome. You should have kept him in the top spot. He even does mashups, which are fantastic. Guys, now go to YouTube and check out 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 him right in the face.

I'm biased by his singing, haha.

7 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.

Woah, why is Chrissy in the top 7 while Tiffany is the 6th? It looks like Chrissy is better than Tiffany! Her voice is better than Tiffany's, and Chrissy can make covers of different genres like pop, rock, acoustic, etc. Their covers of Find You and Shake It Off are way better than Tiffany's. 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 an 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, and 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 she's hot. She is getting famous because she is perfect. She truly came from the heavens (I'm an atheist. I mean heavens as in unhumanly perfect). Chrissy is life!

8 Cimorelli (cimorellitheband)

Cimorelli are some of the most talented girls I know! Their music touches the hearts of many people and changes their lives for the better. I've never come across a band who cares so much for their fans while having fun and being themselves. Cimorelli have helped me through some really hard times and dark places. They have made me stronger, taught me how to feel good about myself, and honestly saved my life! I don't know where I would be without them. I will always love and be thankful to Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani (Cimorelli).

These girls are many people's number one inspiration, and they make so many people happy. Whenever I'm feeling down, I can listen to their music and immediately feel better. Also, their fans mean the world to them. They always try to brighten their fans' 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.

9 Tiffany Alvord (TiffanyAlvord)

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

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

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.

10 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 in 2013.

The Contenders
11 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.

12 Alex Goot

He uses a variety of instruments, and what's more? His music is HOMEMADE! His music is so rich that you can, even if it sounds impossible, hear a lot of sound that really produces MUSIC! He revolutionizes every cover he makes!

Alex Goot is really cool. I think he's really great at what he does, 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.

13 Nick Pitera

Craziest range ever!

Have you heard him change from a man to a woman's voice? Stunning.

14 Annie-Rose
15 Daniela Andrade

I first came upon her voice while watching an episode of "Suits," where they used her cover of "Crazy" by Seal. I immediately used Shazam to find out who the amazing voice belonged to. Now she's on repeat in my playlist!

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

She is amazing! Her rendition of La Vie en Rose is wonderful! Totally recommend her channel.

16 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 are saying he's hot, but GUESS WHAT? You can't complement his singing because he sings through 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 16th? Why? Nooo, my boy is more than the 16th position. He is 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 original and interesting. He has to be number one.

17 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, they somehow manage to lift my spirits up. Weird, huh? But that's the reason why she is a great singer.

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

She truly deserves to be in the top 10 any day. I would rather say top 5 artist on YouTube! Kina is really awesome!

18 The Piano Guys

God, they are five oldies who are so talented. The first time I ever heard one of their covers was a 1D song. I'm a girl but not much into 1D, and I was literally like, OMG. It was absolutely mind-blowing. At first, I used to think that it was better than the original, but let's 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. The Piano Guys are amazing. They know absolutely what they are doing, and all the piano-ish instruments harmonizing together make each cover awesome. There might be better in this list, but my vote would probably be for these five men who have been so inspirational and always will be for me.

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

19 Ahmir
20 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 favorites for a long time. I think his version of Creep (both on YouTube and in real life) will just continue to give me goosebumps. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us, Mike.

Mike is a devotee of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. His rendition of Toto's Africa is what deservedly made him popular, but the range of his catalogue is unmatched. His songs sound great whether done solo or with the usual bass/vocal suspects - Jeff Hall, Bryce Bloom, Sterling Cottam (and others). He is a phenomenal guitarist, playing rhythm and lead simultaneously, though virtually refusing to play any solos, instead remaining faithful to the song using his wonderful voice.

21 Superfruit (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 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 "White Winter Hymnal" (Scott and 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, rawr! 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 two medley kind of covers that have gained millions of views, and they are just all around AWESOME.

22 Liam Horne
23 Karmin Karmin is an American pop duo consisting of Amy Renee Noonan and Nick Noonan. The name of the band is a portmanteau made from the Latin word carmen meaning "song", and the word karma, making the name Karmin.
24 Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age. Since 2009, she has issued an EP and eight albums, including a platinum and gold album, and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's latest album 'The Debut', was her eighth consecutive release to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Classical Albums chart... read more

She got her start on YouTube and continues to this day. See her duet of "Hallelujah" with Peter Hollens, with over 1.6 million views. Also, see her performance of "Bridge Over Troubled Water," available only on YouTube, with over 2 million views.

I love her! She pours her emotions into her songs, and I believe that with 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).
