It was OK. He did a verse and a chorus, a guitar lick, then stopped. Decent professional studio back up rendition. They made a big deal out it though, and that's what matters on those shows. Judges reaction.
It didn't make me forget John Lennon's lead vocal. Sorry guys, with all due respect, I don't agree.

I looked it up on YT, and he was really good. Beatle songs are covered a lot. Some are well done, and others, not so much.  To The Beatles credit, their songs are singable, memorable, and known by everyone on the planet! Smiley Very Happy

Good, professional replication. The girl has a Karen Carpenter style vocal, the guy sounds like a Jonas brother. I glad the young musicians are picking up this material. Certainly no one of their generation are writing this kind of material. I commend them for that. It doesn't have Reggie's vocal dynamics, but a very pleasant, professional replication.

This is another cover that I just happened on to. I'm not familiar with either artist, but they make a fine pairing, and harmonies are spot on. This is an Elton John cover, and like many of his songs, lends itself well to harmonizing vocals.

Yes, it is quite a stretch!  I would never have imagined an Eagles’ song turned into metal music. This cover is more about the reinterpretation of an iconic song by an artist who takes it to a different genre that I think is fascinating.

MaVolta, I most always love your choices on the covers, but this one is a bit of a stretch for me. I saw the Eagles final show on The Hell Freezes Over Tour final show at the Rose Bowl. With all due respect, No comparison.

Hotel California - Eagles cover

 

Stumbled across this version by heavy rock / metal singer Jorn (Norway). The darkness of the song lends itself well to the heavy rock / metal influences, but it's not something easy to imagine after having listened to the melodic, harmonic ballad as performed by the Eagles for so many years. Jorn adds a chord change to the last verse, while a well done, but very different, metal guitar replaces the intricate and harmonic guitars of the Eagles. It makes for an interesting reinterpretation of a classic rock ballad into a completely different genre. He seems to be famous for reworking classic rock into heavy rock / metal songs. 

 

This is one of my favorite songs by the Eagles, but never imagined it play like this . . .

That's not my intent. The girl's voice doesn't work for that song. If she was doing Pentangle, or Celtic folk tunes she'd be perfect. Joe Lynn Turner sounded like he was backing off to not blow her out on the record.
The guitar work on the cover was very professional. But you as a fan know it doesn't have Blackmore's personality. I love Blackmore too. We are in agreement there. Rebels like him will always have critics. But I'm not one of them.
