Teen Queen Cover Battle: Taylor Swift vs. Selena Gomez

/ October 21, 2010

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez may be besties but that doesn’t mean that they don’t enjoy a little friendly competition, especially when it comes to singing covers of their favorite tunes.

The two songbirds both sang covers of two different songs by British artists during public appearances in England this week. Was it a coincidence? Probably, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t put the covers to the test in a Celebuzz Teen Queen Cover Battle!

First up, Selena. The “Year Without Rain” singer did a ballad-style rendition of Cheryl Cole’s hit song “Parachute” during a concert in London on Wednesday night. Watch Selena do her best Cheryl below.

Pretty good, right?

Next up: Taylor. The “Mean” singer-songwriter sang a stripped-down version of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” during an appearance on BBC Radio 2. Watch Taylor sing below.
