Although their song "Bulletproof" was a much bigger hit (at least in the U.S.), La Roux's 2009 dance anthem "In For The Kill" went hard in the paint. Maybe that's why when the 2011 Grammy Award nominations were announced, the song was nominated for Best Dance Recording. We're definitely rooting for the English duo (comprised of Elly Jackson and Ben Langmaid) to win because the song, as well as Elly Jackson, has been embraced by hip-hop. Jackson contributed vocals to Kanye West's "All of The Lights" (Your guess is as good as ours about which part she actually sings) and numerous rappers have all freestyled over "In For The Kill," often after putting their own little production touches to the beat. In fact, just last week when Game dropped his well-received mixtape, Purp & Patron, he also freestyled over the beat after Cool & Dre put some new drums on it. But the question remains: Who Rocked It The Best? We went and grabbed every version of the song out there and decided to put it to a vote.
