I'm Dying To Know Which "Glee" Cover Songs You Think Have Surpassed Their Original Versions

It should be illegal for "Smooth Criminal" to be as good as it is...

In the year of our Lord 2022, I think it's finally time to admit that some Glee cover songs have completely surpassed their original versions in terms of quality and substance.

I mean, are you telling me that you'd rather listen to Ne-Yo's upbeat "Let Me Love You" than Jake Puckerman's haunting rendition?

Please look me in my eye and tell me Marley and Unique's duet of "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" doesn't completely outdo Pink's, from their vocals to their stellar performance!

What about when the Warblers turned Flo Rida's "Whistle" from a generic pop song into an a cappella masterpiece?

And, of course, we can never, EVER forget Santana and Sebastian's duet of "Smooth Criminal," which is the most iconic version of this song, and if you disagree, you can argue with the wall.
