Tony winner Jessie Mueller has one of the best moments on Broadway right now as her Waitress character Jenna settles into her sofa to sing to her unborn daughter Sara Bareilles’ soaring anthem “She Used To Be Mine”.


Since the song is so epic already (think 2016’s “Defying Gravity” or "On My Own"), there are many covers to be found on the interwebs—some outstanding, some admirable at best. Below, we look at 15 YouTubers who nailed it.
