G4 - Bohemian RhapsodyThe moral victors of "X-Factor", G4 certainly know how to do justice to a cover, unlike Steve Whatshisname. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is simply breathtaking, as they are able to put a completely different spin on the classic Queen song, and it suits their perfectly harmonised voices. Their version of "Everybody Hurts" also works surprisingly well.

There are a few tracks in the history of music that have an unwritten clause that states "don't mess with this song or else", and these two songs fit firmly into that list. Just who would dare cover "Bohemian Rhapsody" apart from Rolf Harris? Well, this is far from comedy, but rather just the sort of cover that I'm sure Freddie would be proud of - a highly operatic version of the song with just the right amount of camp-ness to do it justice. "Everybody Hurts" is also brilliantly sung, but the simple fact about both of these is, whilst they're truly amazing versions, the originals are so phenomenal that however hard G4 try, they'd never be able to match them.
