Kanye sings Queen and Florence does Foos. Here are some of our favourite covers from over the festival weekend.

Glastonbury was, as always, a big mad weekend. And no doubt by now you've been inundated with stories about everything that went down - from Kanye's predictably controversial set to Florence + The Machine's huge sales boost.

But one thing that stuck out to us was the chance for some artists to have fun on stage with some sweet cover songs. Two from the headliners stuck out in particular, but we found a few more that you might have missed:


1. Kanye West - "Bohemian Rhapsody" (Queen)

Everyone except Kanye West knows that Kanye West isn't an amazing singer, so that didn't stop him from powering through this short attempt at "Bohemian Rhapsody". The crowd seemed on board, but we're glad it wasn't the full thing.


2. Wolf Alice - Take Your Mama (Scissor Sisters)

Remember how huge Scissor Sisters were at one point? Newcomers Wolf Alice appeared at BBC's Music Teepee following their "career-defining" set to deliver a simplistic cover of the pop group's breakout single.


3. George Ezra - "Girl From The North Country" (Bob Dylan)

George gave Glasto a belting performance of his version of Macy Gray's "I Try", but apparently the greater internet gods are not willing to share that with us. But luckily he also busted out this excellent Bob Dylan cover.


4. Hozier - "Retrograde" (James Blake)

Hozier busted out his signature cover of Ariana Grande's "Problem" during his set on the Pyramid stage, but he also swung by the Music Teepee to offer this haunting cover of his fellow singer-songwriter's track.



5. Florence + The Machine - "Times Like These" (Foo Fighters)

Dedicating her cover to Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who, leg-breaking stage accident resulted in Florence filling in for the band, Florence puts her classic ethereal spin on a Foo fan favourite.
