Teen Queen Cover Battle: Taylor Swift vs. Selena Gomez

Teen Queen Cover Battle: Taylor Swift vs. Selena Gomez-photo

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.

Which of the covers do you prefer? Vote in our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.

    I love Selena, but she didn't do Cheryl justice. Cheryl might not be the best live singer, but she can sing pretty decent. Selena did that terribly. Taylor did good. I love Coldplay as well.

    I was really impressed with Taylor. As of late, Taylor's vocals haven't been that great. Viva la vida is one of my favorite songs, but she definitely brought her own touch to the song without making me cringe. I actually closed my eyes and swayed to the beat when she was singing. As for Selena, we all know this is no "battle." Selena cannot sing live to save her life. She never has any "good singing live days" like Taylor. I love Selena, and I would advise her to please please please stick to acting.

    Well Taylor is ALWAYS off key... She really can't sing, the only time she sounds good is on the recording, when they fix it, but she sounds awful life. But the same with Selena. The standards are lowered for singers, not many can actually sing.If you wanna hear good singers go on Broadway, not Hollywood.

    I love this person for not bashing like the rest. ^_^But, do you really have to put up a "battle" between two BFFS and NOT include a BOTH?Cause they're too different. One you can hear better, the other you can't.Selena is singing at a concert, the video is a fan's and she could be out of breath from her last songs.Taylor's at what? A radio station?This is such a bias battle.-________-BOTH your are dead on right i agree with you because the person recording it their camera kept making the video sound fade in and out and she probably sang a lot of songs that night and these haters know she did i mean even taylor gets tired and crcks up some times everyone has a different singing voice and some of thses people can't sing for sh*t and they think they have the right to say she can't sing she's the type that sings a little and talks at the same time so that's what some people do when they have a band but eiether way of course taylor would sound better because she's in a closed off station with professional cameras, and yeah like she said there best friends so why battle them against each other just cause they both sing both are really amazing people and i'd love to be in their place any day.this battle is such a waste of time doing these things to these girls and trying to turn them against each other both sang there hearts out

    Taylor's "viva la vida" are her best vocals I have heard in a while. I think it's because it's in a closed setting, so a smaller room makes her voice clearer and more powerful. It was a nice cover! She gave justice to the song and artist As for Selena... no comment. What else is there to say? She really can not sing! I can sing better and more powerfully than her and I will readily admit I can't sing to save my life! The song sounds pretty, I'll have to listen to the original. I love Selena but her voice is weak and cracks like all hell! So I vote for Taylor! How Selena is winning I simply don't ubderstand. I listen to her songs, but only the studio versions.
