Justin and Selena have shared love, they have shared heartbreak and now they have shared singing the same song about each other. But the question is: Who sang Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cry Me A River’ better?

The ultimate breakup song has now been sung by both Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber after one of their 10,000 breakups, but who made the biggest impact in their individual quests to one-up each other?

Selena and Justin once were the greatest and cutest couple in Hollywood. But after multiple fights, they have broken up — possibly forever, this time. The two formerly-inseparable lovers have now taken the next step in their relationship and have decided to sing Justin Timberlake‘s “Cry Me A River” to each other, in an effort to say the other was the reason for the separation.

But now that they’re enemies, who do you have as the winner of the sing-off? Both performances are done very well, but who is showing more heartfelt scorn in their rendition?

As we all know, “Cry Me A River” has been heavily rumored to be about Justin Timberlake’s original love, Britney Spears. Being such a heartbreaking song, it certainly tells a story that speaks volumes on how the relationship ended. But now, it’s up to you to tell us exactly who did it better! Selena or Justin?

Watch Selena Gomez Singing ‘Cry Me A River’!

Now, Watch Justin Bieber Singing ‘Cry Me A River’ Below!

On a side note, Justin actually sang the song on a YouTube video, dated back in 2008, which is actually my personal favorite of the three. Watch that rendition below!

So, HollywoodLifers, who do you think sang “Cry Me A River” better? Sound off below!

Sooooo……. Justin Bieber is your singing coach AND your husband? Is he in charge of making sure you take your medication too? If so, he’s slacking on the job.

Sup. Everything published by Celebrities, the press and on the internet is fabrications meant to attract people and sell stuff. Nothing personal, it’s just business. Social Media such as Twitter and Facebook have zero credibility. Don’t be a hater. Chill. Be happy.

OK, here’s my honest opinion.
I never really listened to Justin’s songs but when I did, he actually was a pretty good singer and his songs weren’t bad unlike some other famous pop songs that you start to wonder, “How did this singer become so popular?” or “Oh my goodness, this is just pure laziness!! They throw one good song into this crap album in the hope that it can sell the other songs!” Whenever I heard that Selena Gomez and him were dating, I started listening to Selena’s songs. They were… Okay. I particularly like her “Who Says” but that was about it, the other songs were aimed at 6-8 age group. Unlike Disney’s Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus, the only thing Selena’s “other” songs had were cute and fun. However, when Justin Bieber performed on the X Factor UK in 2009 and 2010. WOW. He could really sing, dance and overpower the crazy, screaming crowd with his performance which is something Selena’s working on still. But I must say Selena has improved leaps and bounds (and incase you think I’m just saying that because I’m some immature, defensive, no-taste-in-music Selena Gomez fan, I watch the X Factor UK and USA every year, I listen to Adele, Leona Lewis, James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas, Ella Henderson, District 3, Alexandra Burke, Whitney Houston, Nicole Sherzinger, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse, Emeli Sande etc and also watch American Idol).
Selena Gomez still has a way to go before catching up on Justin but in this video, she holds her own. I agree with the article, they both perform very well. Unlike some pop artists, she doesn’t mime in her performances, she actually sings, she doesn’t use auto tune (she actually sings her songs without help but her voice isn’t strong enough yet to conquer live performances, and you can tell she doesn’t use auto tune in them), she works extremely hard and I believe she will eventually conquer live performances. And also, if her voice keeps on improving so rapidly she will have an excellent voice when she’s older.
But, in terms of who sings better in this video, Justin Bieber wins but only by a few inches. Come on, Selena! Nearly there!

Selena did not make any comments or references on her past ex’s after a break-up. What makes JB so special that she wants to tell the world how she’s handling her break-up?

Selena! HELLO!!! You have had your BFF’s Vanessa Hudgens and Taylor Swift tell how to mend hour broken heart. You where with real men: Josh Hutcherson (20, caught dancing and flirting), Luke Bracey (23, holding hands), and now spotted with a mystery man in NY at your hotel, only to leave him behind in the car. You have had breakup songs. Is the Bieber fever that strong?? It looks like you’re standing on the bridge that you lit a match to, and is now on fire. Keep on going like you have, and you will be drowning in your own ‘Cry Me a River’, if not already, and Justin Bieber will have to pull you out.

What the hell are u talking about?
She never wore his t shirt and even if they were still together she still won’t
Ur just a jelena lover trying to find a way to blame the media
Do u have proof that’s Justin’s t shirt?
Do u have any pics of then together after the New Years?
Do u have any vids of sel or justin saying they are still together?
NO! Obviously because she wore a black leather jacket, a black top and black trousers with a coat on top no justin t shirt!
Stop lying to ur self the broke up u just have to face it!
