Glee vs. YouTube: Who Did ‘Rolling in the Deep’ Best?

Just turn it over on your tongue for a while: Jesse St. James. The man is back! And making Glee his bitch. He and Rachel took on Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" last night and hit it well out of the park ... or at least the auditorium. But how do they stack up against an army of YouTube competitors also taking on the same song? In the other corners, we've rounded up hirsute Scottish rockers Kassidy (U.K. hipsters look just like our hipsters!), the P.S. 22 chorus (who beat all for cuteness), and Mike Falzone (who drums on walls). Watch all these and more, and vote for your fave!
