Performing covers of songs are a common practice for music artists, particularly those who like to change things up in their performances. For K-pop groups, they like to kick things up a notch when they cover songs from fellow K-pop artists, and it usually results in an awesome performance that brings something new to the table. 

From swapping songs to co-ed team-ups, here are 11 awesome times when a K-pop group or groups performed another group's song.

11. SEVENTEEN - Too many to count

SEVENTEEN seem to have made girl group covers part of their act!

10. Boys' Generation - Girls' Generation's "Gee"

Ah, 2010 was a simpler time when members of SHINee, 2AM, 2PM, and Super Junior would all get up on stage to perform a Girls' Generation song under the guise of "Boys' Generation"! 

9. VIXX & Girl's Day - Trouble Maker's "Now"

You've seen Trouble Maker's "Now" be performed with one couple, now witness how awesome it is when performed by four couples! 

8. WINNER - 2NE1's "Missing You"

Rather than go all out or go all goofy on their cover of 2NE1's "Missing You", Winner opts for stripped-down acoustic version - and it is brilliant.

7. Teen Top & Girl's Day - Psy's "Gentleman" 

We're bending the rules a little here since Psy is technically a solo artist and not a group, but we - and many others - couldn't help but marvel at Teen Top and Girl's Day's awesome performance of "Gentleman"!

6. Mamamoo - Girl Group Medley

With vocals as well honed as Mamamoo's, why cover only one song when you can do a medley of them?

5. BTOB - Mamamoo's "You're The Best"

It's a little hard to imagine how a song performed by four women will translate to seven men, but BTOB do a great job of showing us how it would sound!

4. BIGBANG & Wonder Girls - "Lies" & "Tell Me"

Nothing like having two legendary K-pop groups performing each other's songs - and on the same stage no less!

3. BTS - Shinhwa's "Perfect Man"

Shinhwa's sound may not be BTS' usual cup of tea, but the boys manage to bring a fresh new take on an oldie!

2. TWICE & G-Friend swap songs

Seeing as how TWICE and G-Friend are two of the biggest K-pop girl groups at the moment, it makes perfect sense to get them to perform each other's songs (despite the differing member numbers)! 

Here's TWICE's cover of G-Friend's "Me Gustas Tu":

As for G-Friend, they decided to cover TWICE's "Like Ooh-Ahh":

1. GOT7 - AOA's "Mini-Skirt"

There's GOT7 covering AOA's "Mini-Skirt" and then there's GOT7 covering AOA's "Mini-Skirt" whilst wearing mini-skirts. This is - hilariously for us - the latter:
