Miranda Cosgrove Channels Sheryl Crow In Covering Cat Stevens' 'The First Cut Is The Deepest' (VIDEO)

Original Song: "The First Cut Is the Deepest" by Cat Stevens

Cover Artist: "Despicable Me 2" star Miranda Cosgrove

How It's Different: Originally written by folk-rock singer Cat Stevens, Miranda isn't the first to cover this hit song. Channeling Sheryl Crow's 2003 version, Miranda mentions that she was inspired by the "If It Makes You Happy" singer to perform her own, taking on a quiet, acoustic adaptation that is both sweet and simple.

Why We Love It: From Ariana Grande to Jennette McCurdy, vocal talent is not sparse among Nickelodeon stars. While you probably know Miranda best as Carly Shay from our beloved "iCarly" (RIP), it turns out that she has some real singing chops, too. We're glad she's sharing them with us along with the rest of the 'Nick' crew.

Better Than The Original? Miranda's cover is no doubt very pretty, but no rocks it quite like the '90s badass that is Sheryl Crow.
