We can’t get enough of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” and it seems celebs can’t too. Tons of the smash hit’s covers are popping up on TV and YouTube like Glee’s Jesse-Rachel duet and Jasmine Villegasacapella rendition. From John Legend’s to Linkin Park’s, we bring you 12 more takes on the heartbreak hymn.


Be still, our beating hearts. John Legend’s stripped-down rendition is emotional and powerful and just plain good. There are some mash-ups of John’s and Adele’s versions on YouTube but we wish the two would sing it together for real.

Linkin Park slowed things down at the iTunes Festival London 2011, where Adele herself also took the stage. Fans of Chester Bennington's vocals, fret not; the furious rasp is still there, just in smaller doses.
