    Using nothing but her voice and a loop pedal, Kawehi Wight reinvents the Michael Jackson classic 'The Way You Make Me Feel'.

    In the video the Kansas-based musician is seen sitting on a bed in the company of two dogs as she engineers the beat, melody and vocals for this awesome cover.

    The video has since gone viral, having been unleashed on Reddit, Vimeo, and Twitter.

    Most covers just don't live up to the hype -- not only of Michael but of anyone. Taking a classic song and reinventing it as your own more often than not results in failure, though not as much for lack of trying as for a difficulty of making anything worthy of the original.

    As far as Michael is concerned, most crash and burn. Any acoustic cover of "Billie Jean" should be eradicated.

    I like The Weeknd's cover of Dirty Diana, he changed it up a bit because he cannot duplicate The King of Pop

    As long as they don't sing I'm fine, NO ONE else can perform his own songs with such passion and power the way Michael does. True he didn't compose MITM and YANA but Siedah's and R. Kelly's version don't live up at all.

    I mostly prefer orchestrated versions like the one Galactus posted, Miles Davis' cover of Human Nature was really nice. Some of my faves:





    Even metal. Metallica medley playing Beat It at the end, even James attempted to Moonwalk :lol::

    That was good i like that one if Michael was here he would love it. She got some talent there

    First two did not like but the third one with the voila was good.

    My friend Eni covered Jackson 5's version of Who's Loving You on The Voice of Croatia. She killed it! I'll post her performance of Son Of A Preacher Man also because she killed that one too! She spoke nicely about Michael in the show too .
