While you’re busy belting out your favourite K-pop tune in noraebang, your idols are doing the same. Only, they’re singing English songs in front of a real live audience. As much as we hate to admit it, some covers are just a no. But these artists totally nailed the covers.
1. Park Jimin
This video (which is actually her audition on talent survival show K-Pop Star) catapulted her to international fame, as she was featured on various news platforms as the 14-year-old girl who smashed the Adele song.
This video was from a show that Ailee appeared on before her official debut as a singer. She basically blew everyone away with her power pipes.
An Ed Sheeran cover? Gimme.
4. BTS’s V
If you ignore the emo feels of the MV, you’ll be able to better focus on his amazing vocals.

7. SISTAR’s Hyorin and Soyou
There are only a handful K-pop stars who can rival Hyorin’s vocals, and this Christina Aguilera cover really proves that she’s a vocal powerhouse.
8. Super Junior
We couldn’t help but include this super cute cover of “Puff the Magic Dragon” in. Just because.
