Leona Lewis v. The Goo Goo Dolls

Leona Lewis, the Grammy nominated pop star who rose to fame on Britain’s The X Factor recently returned to the show to perform a new song. She did a beautiful cover of Nine Inch Nails & Johnny Cash’s “Hurt”. It was a startling departure from the original and I really enjoyed it. It looks like it’s becoming a hit across the pond and will be included on a new 3 song EP that will hit iTunes on Dec. 20th. She will reportedly be performing on the stateside version of The X Factor the same day. The question is will she sing that song or will she sing another cover that is included on the EP, “Iris”, originally a giant hit for the Goo Goo Dolls in 1998. Regardless I have both new songs for you below. Take a listen to them and tell me which you like. Also, check out the Goo Goo Dolls original and see how it compares. I love Leona, but I gotta give this battle to the Dolls… And watch for Lewis’s long-awaited third album to drop in March of next year.
