1 Katy Perry Song In 20 Styles (From Nirvana to Sinatra to Michael Jackson and more)

Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs has struck on a novel formula. He has taken Katy Perry’s song Dark Horse and made a version that extremely impressively translates it into the musical and vocal styles of twenty major recording artists one at a time. In order of style they are: Katy Perry, Nirvana, Queen, Michael Jackson, ‘N Sync, Iron Maiden, Jamiroquai, Pantera, Frank Sinatra, Metallica, Pavarotti, The Doors, Run D.M.C., Tech N9ne Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slipknot, Louis Prima, Boyz II Men, Type O Negative, and John Mayer.

In case you want to catch up on the original song, first is Katy Perry’s Dark Horse and below it is Anthony Vincent’s version in twenty styles.

I also recommend when you listen to Anthony Vincent’s version you don’t watch him perform, at least the first time, because I found that that impressed on me more clearly how well he’s separating his performances more than when I was watching him and being reminded it’s always him singing by always looking at him.
