Right now, it’s Adele‘s world and we’re all just living in it. The beloved British powerhouse is dominating headlines thanks to long-awaited new album that’s making both critics and fans swoon and tonight she’s set to introduce it in an official way, on “Saturday Night Live.”

It’s a testament to the 27-year-old’s songs—most of which are already considered pop classics—that so many other artists have put their own unique spin on them (“Rolling in the Deep” is one of the most-covered songs in history, BTW) so here are the 12 worth listening to.

John Legend covered what became Adele’s signature song, “Rolling in the Deep” without any backing music—and it’s fantastic.

One word for Celine Dion’s epic cover of “Rolling in the Deep”: QUEEN.

Katy Perry mashed up her own “The One That Got Away” with Adele’s “Someone Like You.”

Critics called “Glee’s” mix of “Rumour Has it” and “Someone Like You one of the best covers the show’s ever done.

An unlikely match that works: Santigold‘s hipster cover of one of Adele’s most underrated songs, “Hometown Glory.”

Everyone was talking about Demi Lovato‘s cover of Adele’s new “Hello” for a reason.

Jerimih gives “Rumour Has It” a stripped down, hip-hop spin.

2013’s “American Idol” champ Candace Glover slayed Adele’s cover of The Cure’s “Love Song,” and the judges called it  one of the show’s best performances of all time.

Country artist Dierks Bentley covered “Set Fire to the Rain.”

Willow Smith proves she has an amazing voice in this short cover of “Skyfall.”

Joe Jonas‘ new band, DNCE, took a costumed stab at “Hello.”

“Glee” covered more than one of Adele’s songs, but Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff’s “Rolling in the Deep” works nicely as a duet.
