Have you ever seen those inflatable stick figures that flap around in the wind on some people’s front yards? At Brisbane’s Supanova Pop Culture Expo one guy dressed up as one and had everyone in stitches. He’s so convincing I didn’t think there was a person in there at first! [Reddit]
To singers, Adele must be what Tom Wolfe is to writers or Andy Warhol was to artists. Put simply, Adele is f*cking awesome and it’s hard to top her. So it’s understandable why Kelly Clarkson was hesitant to cover “Someone Like You” during her tour. She didn’t have to worry because she pretty much killed it.
During every concert stop on her “Stronger” tour, Kelly Clarkson covers a fan request. In Brisbane, Australia, she took on the red-headed singer’s sob-worthy single. ”I’ve actually been avoiding this song,” she told the audience. “It’s been literally every fan request. And I’ve been avoiding it because Adele might be one of the best singers of all time. …So hopefully I do it justice and don’t suck.”
In the past, Clarkson has covered Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and Florence’s “Shake It Out.” Though it’s not our fave out of all her covers so far, we’re still pretty impressed — especially when it picks up in the second half.

Name: The Fergies
Song: “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift
Why we’re obsessed: This acoustic version of T-Swift’s new single by The Fergies is catchy with a sweet tone at the bridge. Kahlia’s soft and high-pitched vocals add a certain flare to the hit and her brother Daniel lets her voice shining by playing a simple melody on the guitar. It’s a slightly more mellow attempt at calling out an ex.
The Fergies’ cover is one of the more unique covers I’ve seen. So far, it’s received over 37,000 views in just one week.
Background: The Fergies are a pop band composed of five siblings with the last name Ferguson from Brisbane, Australia. They’ve been uploading covers and originals to their YouTube page since 2010. While their videos and songs don’t always include every sibling, they seem to be really popular in their native country.
