Mhhh... I kinda saw this coming.
I and [@Icey] had a public conversation about the format of this national selection. Because the songs are covers and have the same exact lyrics, we decided to just add one version (Michael Rice's, Jordan Clarke's and Kerrie-Anne's) and add the others artist in the "also performed by" box with a video on the "author's comment".
We also agreed to change the artist, in case they wouldn't have made it to the final of the show (so, if Anisa is selected instead of Kerrie-Anne, we would add Anisa as the main entry).
I expressed my concerns for a possible collection, but I guess we should have warned everyone about it...

Yep, we should have. Anyway, we're soon going to know which version is going to the final round, so we can wait until then and later delete the duplicate version.

Or, well, we might just keep it.

I don't quite see the point with it. We just got a rule exactly on this issue, so I would say there shouldn't be any doubt on the matter.

Remixes and covers are allowed, but only if there's a major difference between the remix and the original lyrics (stanzas removed, verses omitted, etc.) or there is a proof in form of a video or a sound recording that the cover was performed by the given artist.

Indeed, there shouldn't be any doubt about the matter.

Just to bring it to your attention: "Bigger Than Us" would potentially need to be merged as there are translation in both versions of the song.
