Rhydian gets the party started?

In advance of tonight's show where Rhydian will tear the place apart with a brooding operatic version of Let's Get the Party Started I thought I'd would be useful to see how other singers have interpreted the song.

Pink's version is well known but is it the best? Is it as good as Shirley Bassey's diva-ish version. Less well known is Lisa Hannigan and Damien Rice's. Even though most things he sings end up sounding miserable even Rice can't quite divest the song of it's ecstacy fueled bounce. Although he gives it his best shot.

Pink : Get the Party Started
Shirley Bassey : Get the Party Started
Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan : Get the Party Started
Cobra Verde :Get the Party Started

Rhydian Roberts: Get the Party Started
An insider in The X Factor is reported saying that Emily's song this week, if she had stayed, would controversially have been Smack My Bitch Up by The Prodigy. So to celebrate Emily's removal from the show here is what the original sounds like:
