Glee is trending online as the weekend begins, and not for good reasons. Apparently, their latest cover of Baby Got Back sounds just a little too similar to Jonathan Coultan’s arrangement of the 1990’s one hit wonder.
Actually, it’s nearly impossible to argue that Glee didn’t completely rip off the song.
And others are paying attention. Already, the newly published cover by Glee has an over 95% negative rating. Popular websites like Wired, Salon, TheVerge, UpRoxx, and DailyDot are also covering the fiasco.
With the way today’s world is so interconnected, you’d think someone working at Glee would realize openly stealing someone else’s arrangement would be a bad idea. There’s no taking this back Glee.
On all the American Got Factor talent TV shows, only a few special singers stick out of the crowd enough to garner attention online. The ten millionth season of American Idol just debuted, and already, Cuban born Lazaro Arbos is going viralviral.
He moved to Florida when he was ten, but even before then dealing with the challenges of immigration, he was already struggling with a heavy stammer.
Thift Shop by Mackelmore and Ryan Lewish continues to trend online. The latest to cover the popular rap track is popular violinist Lindsey Stirling in collaboration with vocalist Tyler Ward. In one day, the duo have already harvested over 300,000 visits.
Though the song is over six month old, Thrift Shop by Macklemore continues to trend, standing with over 55 million views. Now, popular vocalists group Pentatonix has gone viral in their own right after covering the popular rap song with only their voices.
