Glee vs. YouTube: Who Did ‘Smooth Criminal’ Best?

The Glee kids barely escaped last night's episode with all their limbs intact (do eyes count as limbs? If so, scratch that), and if we were charitable people, we would give them a break. But we're not charitable people, so instead we're going to throw them right back into battle, and this time, instead of the Warblers, they'll be facing all of YouTube. Please take special note of Sulic & Hauser, a.k.a. 2CELLOS, who seem to have inspired last night's take on "Smooth Criminal," as well as J.Viewz, who manages to out-Santana Santana in the smoky department. Then watch the rest and tell us: Who did "Smooth Criminal" best?
