    Correction: 2:02 Looks like the Taylor Swift comment was regarding her original songs, and she's fine with singing covers. The more you know™

      No offense but I don't know why ....the whole thing felt like unnecessarily disrespecting and making fun of singers.....just because they sang a song that they liked....... And I didn't find the comments about them any funny...

    That BeatlesPop song was played at the wrong speed. The vocals were too high. Sounded fake. For goodness sake. Listen to the White Album. Sargent Pepper. I’m freaking out ! Uff da Joel ! Love ya but please not The BEATLES ! Okay rant over. Carry on. I actually love The 80’s, 90’s early 2000’s. Synth Pop Rock. I love the way you call out the auto tune. Your amazing !

    The JLS version of Hallelujah that they did on the XFactor final was better than these two versions combined and the JLS version was awful when compared to Alexander Burks version (the 2008 winner), and I love JLS

    I wouldn't choose which music is better since they have compare it on different timeline. Music changes over the years and different preferences and presentations. As we can say, 90s music have different style than music going 2000 til now. Most youth prefer music from today's timeline than old people born from 60-90s.

    Look, he’s allowed to have whatever favorite music he likes, but the fact that he not only has no appreciation for, but genuinely is dismissive of classic music, is incredibly ignorant and frankly discredits his takes on some of these songs. Not everything has to be a happy pop song. If I’m being perfectly honest, you’re an incredibly rude music “critic” who has a very close minded and dismissive view.
