Names: Lindsey Stirling and Megan Nicole
Song: “Starships” by Nicki Minaj
Why we’re obsessed: We’re loving Lindsey and Megan’s take on Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” with its Celtic twist and aerial views. We’ve been amazed by Stirling’s badass violin skills in the past, when she took on a dubstep track (yes, dubstep on the violin. What?).
This clean-cut version sounds just like the original for the most part, but Lindsey’s killer violin skills really amp up the beat. Although I like how both Megan and Nicki’s voices sound similar, we’re missing the popstar’s spazzed out alter ego, Roman (you all know what I’m talking about). Check out the video below and you’ll see why it has gotten over 300,000 views in less than a week!
Background: Both girls are from the United Sates and have their own YouTube channels. Megan uploads Top 40 covers and some original tracks, and Lindsey uploads various violin pieces.
