Glee vs. YouTube: Who Did ‘Sway’ Best?

Last night's Glee had two weddings (one extremely weird), two Bruno Mars songs, and no viral pop hits. What?! Thankfully, we had the mellow strains of "Sway" to console us. Written by Mexican bandleader Pablo Beltrán Ruiz, translated to English by "Girl From Ipanema" scribe Norman Gimbel, and popularized by Rat Packer Dean Martin, it's been covered by everyone from Rosemary Clooney to the Pussy Cat Dolls to Bosko & Honey's Ukulele Love-In. Can puny little Will Schuester compete?

Watch these versions and tell us: Who did it best?

If nephew George could sing like this, he would be the James Bond of attractive men ... or is that just James Bond?

There seems to be a "Macarena" derivative happening.

Tiny guitars, big passion.

Less "sway" than "bend and snap," but hey, we'll take it.

That trick with the mike stand is wicked cool.
