"Rolling in the Deep"

The Run Off

Whatever the case may be, in The Run Off, The A Cappella Blog brings together three to five different renderings of the same song, and, in the name of sharing different visions, and for the sake of friendly competition, puts them side by side for readers to vote for their favorites. Please feel free to post your rationale in the comments section. Winners will be announced three weeks after the polling begins.

For this edition of The Run Off, we take a look at Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” Special thanks goes out to ACB reader Justin Ku for suggesting the song and identifying these versions!
