While Gavin Degraw remains my favorite cover (probably because I'm so used to his version), I think both Kate Voegele and Patrick Stump did a pretty nice job too. If I could choose another artist, I would love to have Adele perform the song and see how it turns out. Her deep and magnetic voice, coupled with her incredible talent for songwriting, would likely make the song all the more charming.
