FlumeChvrchesGlass AnimalsG Flip, and Joey Bada$$ all shared their favorite Like a Versions. 

“I really enjoyed watching the Confidence Man one [Heaven by DJ Sammy]. Seeing the theatre they add to it, that’s really entertaining. They really went in,” Flume said.

“My vote in triple j’s Hottest 100 of Like A Version is Wolf Alice doing Boys / Boys Don’t Cry. It sounds like something out of a ’90s teen movie. I love the shared vocals, and who doesn’t love a medley mashup?” Chvrches said.

“My vote for triple j’s hottest 100 of Like A Version is Denzel Curry’s cover of Bulls on Parade…firstly because Denzel Curry is one of the greatest living artists on the planet. Secondly, his energy in this performance is unparalleled. And thirdly, is because I simply just didn’t expect it…a legendary moment,” Glass Animals said.

“My vote is when Gang of Youths covered ‘Blood’ by The Middle East. I thought the band arrangement was incredible, and I loved seeing Dave Le’aupepe on the white Falcon being an absolute rock star. The musicianship of the whole arrangement and the string section was so epic. It was really emotional and a bloody ripper,” G Flip said. 

“My favourite Like A Version is Donald’s (Childish Gambino) cover of Tamia’s ‘So In You’. I just love the way his vocals sound on that. It sounds like butter,” Joey Bada$$ said.
