I was just going to make a thread about the cover Ella did. You can tell that the CMWYS video inspired what she's wearing. Apparently the instrumental was Rolling In The Deep that was changed a bit, ugh I hated it omg.
it's not too bad, kinda reminds me of what it would sound like if Adelle covered the song, but the song was instantly ruined the second she sings "being me BACK to life"
I'm not sure it was a mistake actually, I think it may have been intentional. She was clearly inspired by the CMWYS video as well, so maybe she's a fan and to her, she feels the need to include "back" into the line.
I understand the line "bring me to life". Amy said she felt like she'd never really been living (or to that degree). But some people do feel as though they've lived but perhaps loose that feeling, so to them they have been 'brought back to life' as opposed to 'brought to life'.
I dunno, it's late and I feel like I'm talking in stupid riddles now. I'm off to bed before I hurt my head
This is horrible. Sorry but I can't understand why anybody would do this to an already perfect song. Now I feel guilty when I remember that I had something against Katherine Jenkins's cover of BMTL. It was beyond perfect compared to this. I haven't heard any of Ella's other performances but if she does this to every song she sings, her place isn't there.
My family got so annoyed with me because I kept yelling THATS NOT THE LYRICS, OH MY GOD HOW DARE THEY THATS NOT THE LYRICS. Over reacting much but yeah, annoying haha. I think she did an OK job, her voice in amazing but I didn't like the composition
Ella is a favourite in the UK X Factor. Haha I was like that too @ ciera xD normally I get exited when someone covers an Ev song on tv, but when I was watching her on tv with my mum and sister, I was complaining from the start to the end. Let's just hope she doesn't cover Ev again for rock week.
See, what i love about Amy is that she really OWNS her songs, and no one else sounds right singing it. I want to throw stuff at these people! Hell i wanna throw stuff at myself when i'm singing her songs too. Lol
It's very hard for me to listen to all these covers coz many of them especially the x factor ones have been changed a lot and i just feel like they've been raped :c But at the same time I feel honoured for Evanescence and Amy Lee that someone has chosen an Evanescence song and they are singing Amy's lyrics.
This girl sang Broken on the Finnish Idol in 2007. I actually liked it a lot at the time coz I wasn't a crazy obsessed Ev fan yet (after about a month I was)
