The Filipino-Australian singer-songwriter shot straight to the top of the class tackling the big finisher from 2003 comedy School Of Rock. Taking on the role of Jack Black, grentperez and his crack band clearly did their homework, injecting the original with some bedroom pop charm. We'd wager that anyone who hadn't heard of the Unearthed Artist of the Year nominee before this certainly walked away a fan.
