I posted this video a few years ago, but I still love it, and since it fits the category, why not share it again?
I've been a big fan of Chris Daughtry's since he appeared on the fifth season of American Idol (where he inexplicably finished fourth). There's just something about the tone of his voice that has always resonated with me.
In 2009, he performed a live acoustic version of Lady Gaga's Poker Face for a radio station in Germany. I thought the combination of the acoustic guitar and his vocal delivery really brought a different dimension to the usually frenetic song.
So, if you've not seen this before (or even if you have), enjoy!
