The time has finally come.

We're about to sort the best from the rest.

Together with Le Crunch Apples from France, we've spent the past month asking the nation to send us a recording of them covering their favourite song.

After weeks of listening to you guys tuning and crooning, we've finally picked our 10 favourites.

Now you have to decide who makes it to the final of the Le Crunch Apple of My Eye Song Contest. 

Two acts are selected by the public and three are by the judges. The 5 finalists chosen will perform their cover song live to a packed house at Whelan's on March 9th 2016 with the winner walking away with €2,000 and the four runners-up getting €125 for their troubles. Voting closes March 2nd.

So without further ado.

Badger Hill - Hotline Bling (Drake Cover)

After hearing this tune, we've only got one question: can the Dublin natives do Drake's dad dance?

Eve Belle - do i wanna know (Arctic Monkey's cover)

The 18-year-old from Donegal has put in a performance that Alex Turner would be proud of.

Caz & Stevo - Do it right (Anne-Marie cover)

How much coolness can you cram into one tiny recording room? This much.

Kellie Lewis - Lean On (Major Lazer Cover)

The Cork threesome are leaning on their superb talent.

Brave Giant - Is this digital love (Bob Marley cover)

This folk infused cover of the Bob Marley classic has instantly made Brave Giant our favourite thing about Longford... we never said there was much competition.

Jamie Duff - Oh Well (Fleetwood Mac cover)

Duff the Dub will make you tap your foot. That's a fact.

Twointune - Budapest (George Ezra cover)

Our first reaction to Twointune was 'ah, aren't they lovely.' Our second reaction was 'ah, aren't they talented.'

Zena - No Diggity (Blackstreet cover)

We like the way they work it. Yes diggity.

Patrick Conneely - Someone New (Hozier cover)

It takes great talent to cover Hozier and Conneely has that talent.

The Renegades - 99 Balloons (Nena cover)

These guys are true rockers. Look at the drummer; he didn't even bother to change out of his debs suit before playing.


Voting closes March 2nd. Get voting!
