Now that's how you get respect in the music industry.

a lot better than I thought it would be...
still think A Static Lullaby does the best cover of a Spears song.

I liked The Last Shadow Puppets cover of S.O.S by Rhianna. That was pretty fun.

Womanizer bandwagon done up and left, Ferdypants. Too little too late.

Was fun until they hit the vocal harmonization. Ugh indeed.

Decent cover, vocals worked on the chorus but I thought the verses were all over the place. Also I wish they'd hurry up and announce a tour.

Rather dull, much like Lily Allen covering it live. Original is vastly more enjoyable.
