2011 was a great year for awesome young people covering some of our favorite pop songs, including the teen sibling band Vazquez Sounds and their internet-stopping rendition of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" (with this Adele cover by Tony Oller coming a close second, in our books).
To kick of 2012, we recently discovered another unique teen cover song that impressed us. In the below video, the talented 16-year-old high school student and YouTube user MaisieBruno plays her version of Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" on her guitar. We also stumbled upon a very pretty cover of Taylor Swift's new song for The Hunger Games, "Safe and Sound," by 16-year-old YouTuber itsmePaulina. Watch both renditions and listen to the original songs for comparison in the slideshow.
What do you guys think? Do these covers do the Bieber and TSwift originals justice? Sound off in the comments below or tweet us @HuffPostTeen!
