So we have seen Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah covered numerous times, most notably by Alexandra Burke who won the X Factor and scored a Christmas Number One with the song a few years ago, but was that really a good cover of the track?
Well the answer is NO, especially when you hear vocal group Pentatonix new Christmas version which I am tipping for a top 5 placing on the Christmas Singles Chart.
Lets compare the original, X Factors version and the new Pentatonix version:
For me, you can’t beat an original but Pentatonix have created something rather refreshing with their version…. the X Factor on the other hand, yes it’s a catchy pop version and typical X Factor winners single.
