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?

Selena can’t sound good singing OR show she feels the lyrics. Justin was on spot and connected like it was his own. Justin all the way. Plus, his hair was better

Selena is an actress. So she gave the music a better emotional interpretation. Justin is a singer so he hit the notes better.

Selena wins this one. Justin Bieber is very talented but it seems like this song wasn’t ment for him to sing. I love them both though.

I agree with u. Selena really sang it BETTER THAN JB. She’s beautiful, talented nd DESERVES MORE FAME THAN JB does. Justin’s nothing but a show off.
