Hollywood karaoke

Having a scoot around Youtube this week we've spotted a couple of interesting little covers of Marina's single Hollywood (*cough out now cough*).
For ease of consumption, here's a handy Top of the Pops-style chart (ie, the first one is just sublime).

1 - David' Lyre

(i need one of those masks)

2 - Da Viglio

(she looks like that OCD one out of Glee. Topical)

3 - Charlotte Calamity

(we like the fact that she was being quiet becuase her dad was asleep and her mum was reading to her brother)

Amazing. Have you heard this re-working too?
