The Top 11 Versions Of Miranda Cosgrove's 'Leave It All To Me'
Got Celeb

Almost nine years ago in December of 2007, Miranda Cosgrove wowed the world with her hit single "Leave It All To Me," the theme song for the television show "iCarly." Since then, this song has gone through remixes, covers and so much more. The song reminds listeners every day of many universal truths about, fate, choices and one's own personal role in his or her life story. The following is a list of my personal top 11 versions of Miranda Cosgrove's "Leave It All To Me."

11. Karaoke cover uploaded by YouTube user "Eduarda Schier."

Schier's technique is far from the perfection achieved by Cosgrove, but where Schier lacks in talent, she makes up with heart. This video is a joy to watch.

10. Solo vocal and guitar cover uploaded by YouTube user "RJ Mamula."

This is another performance that is clearly not perfect. The performer doesn't match the chords up with the melody half the time. However, he took it a step further than Schier, providing his own back up instrumentation and gave a solid effort.

9. Solo vocals and duo guitar cover uploaded by YouTube user "Alex DiVincenzo."

This performance translates the original song into another genre. Both of the musicians appear very experienced in their music. Points added for creativity, points taken away for a poor cut of the song and a weak understanding of song's the complex chord progression.

8. Karaoke cover uploaded by YouTube user "Shannen van der Hijden."

This performance starts out a bit shaky but gets better with time. Van der Hijden uses a very common cutting of the song as well as the original karaoke back up featured in number 11. This cover wins points for both vocal quality and spectacle, having good stage presence and added choreography.

7. A Capella vocal cover uploaded by YouTube user "dethnh82uall."

This child craps on every other performer by going completely A Capella. As a first grader, she succeeds in sustaining proper stage presence, and stays in relatively the same key the whole piece. Props.

6. Guitar cover uploaded by YouTube user "Vitor Gonçalves."

This is a wonderful performance. Unfortunately, the song requires a range that is wider than the performer is capable of, leading him to alter the melody to fit his own. While this adds a new character to the song, it dulls down the otherwise dynamic nature of the vocal line. Regardless, this is performance is skilled and deserves a spot on this list.

5. Any of Cosgrove's live performances.

Queen.

4. Piano cover uploaded by YouTube user "Haruki Tsuruki."

While this cover does away with the influential lyrics of the song, it encapsulates the essence of the original song without sacrificing any harmonies. The cover runs a little bit faster than the original but is a quality fourth place.

3. The Billboard Dubstep Remix.

This one needs no commentary.

2. Vocal and ukulele cover uploaded by YouTube user "anonymouscomments123."

My only critique of this performance is vowel shape compared to the original. Other than that it excels in every facet. She stays true to the song yet adds her own character to it. The instrument technique is on point, and her voice rarely falters. Quality performance.

1. The original version featuring Drake Bell.

Nothing can top perfection.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
