    This growing trend of interest in cover songs is so great. New and emerging artists can bring such an interesting and fresh perspective to songs we all love. There is also a new website devoted to spotlighting the best cover performers in the world at They have charts and all sorts of ways to search. Look forward to seeing this Seacrest show!
