Utaite: (歌い手) is a Japanese term for people who cover previously released songs and post them on Nico Nico Douga and YouTube under theutattemita category. The term “utaite” is unique to Nico Nico Douga singers, making it different from Kashu (歌手), which means “singer” in general.

Generally, utaite do cover songs for VOCALOID original songs, anime and game related songs, and J-Pop. They also do parodies with different lyrics for popular songs, intended for amusement.- you can read more on this link
