rionka: Ailyn also did BMTL, MI, and Imaginary, supposedly.
Ooh, I knew about My Immortal, but not BMTL or Imaginary! Hmm, I like her Sirenia songs better.
Also Mandy Suiter, singer of Noctura, sung the acoustic of All That I'm Living For and The Last Song I'm Wasting On You (but I don't have video for those). Her band, Noctura, played Bring Me To Life as well:
A Portuguese band that originated from a (horrible) tv series was huge and covered Bring Me To Life. The cover is horrible and it has nothing to do with their style, it was a major wtf for me when I found out. I'll leave it here for fun...
[Not starting a shitshorm... but] I really like Carly's renditions of Ev songs. They're not "better" than the originals, but they are really, really good.
I haven't really payed much attention to WATF as I don't like them very much. However, I do like Bury Me Alive and her vocals are pretty amazing on that song. Her a capella auditions on American Idol were pretty good as well.

I'm a fan of Vitamin String Quartet usually, but I never liked their version of My Immortal. This live version from them is so much lovelier than the one they put on the compilation albums. I wish this was their official version of it.

I got to see Tarja (ex-Nightwish) live last night, and the support band covered Bring me to life. I think she did a great job. Her voice is lovely. The band's name is Crimson Blue and they're from Russia.

I'm pretty sure there's a more appropriate section of the board to put this kind of thing in, but I've forgotten where it is (feel free to move etc. etc.)
My favourite metalcore band are covering my all time favourite band, and their efforts are going to be featured on Rock Sound magazine's free compilation CD in their 200th issue (out next Wednesday). Personally, I'm really excited/nervous about hearing this because I really want it to be good, but can imagine hundreds of ways that it could turn out really badly.
