Glee vs. YouTube: Who Did ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’ Best?

It's about damn time we got to hear Rachel flex her diva pipes again. As Kurt put it in last night's episode, "You are as brilliant and talented as you are irritating," and what better vindication for the diva denied her shot at sectionals than a soul-shattering, face-pulling rendition of the Andrew Lloyd Weber classic, "Don't Cry for Me Argentina"? But not so fast, Berry: You've got the likes of Sinead O'Connor, Donna Summer, and Georghe Zamfir, master of the pan flute, hot on your heels.

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