Also, Christina Grimme performed Elvis's "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You." Did that have anything to do with Jena Irene's rendition of the song on American Idol?
Here is the D'Angelo (born Michael Eugene Archer) version, which is rated "mature audiences."
As for the contestants, it's anybody's game, but I have a feeling it will be "YouTube sensation" Christina Grimme (Adam-coached). The girl can sing her little behind off, but I'm more likely to buy a song by Josh Kaufman (Usher-coached) because I prefer his tone. The country kid this season is Jake Worthington (Blake-coached), and he has as much chance of winning as the
other two. He's likable, talented, and singing America's most popular music genre.
Christina Grimme vs. Jena Irene
Grimme performed professionally. She's ready to record, but I didn't believe her little speech about why she chose to sing Elvis Presley's classic "Can't Help Falling in Love With You." I think the truth is that the show's producers encouraged the selection. It's too coincidental that idol finalist Jena Irene had already wowed the Idol audience this year singing the same song, and we all know that The Voice and American Idol compete with each other. Anyway, here are both Jena Irene and Chritina Grimme's versions. Whom do you prefer?
