It’s a battle of epic proportions between Big Sean’s new lady love and his ex. Naya Rivera took on Ariana Grande’s hit song on the season premiere of ‘Glee’. Who do you think sang ‘Problem’ better? Vote now!

Now this is a showdown. Naya Rivera, along with the rest of the Unholy Trinity, belted out Ariana Grande’s song “Problem” on the Jan. 9 season premiere of Glee, and it was epic. This particular song is pretty ironic given that Naya was formerly engaged to Ariana’s new love Big Sean. We all know Naya and Ariana can sing, but who had the better performance of “Problem?” It’s up to you to decide!

Ariana Grande Vs. Naya Rivera: Who Sang ‘Problem’ Better?

Let’s start with Naya.

It’s always a good Glee episode when the Unholy Trinity reunites. Santana (Naya), Brittany (Heather Morris) and Quinn (Dianna Agron) put on their Cheerios outfits and performed “Problem” out on the football field, and it was quite a show. 

Fellow Cheerios were pulling off incredible stunts and the crowd was roaring with applause as Naya & Co. sang Ariana’s hit. 

Naya also took on Iggy Azalea’s rap portion of the song. Boy, did she pull it off. Naya must of known she would have to bring her A-game to Ariana’s song and she sure did! To make things even more awkward, Big Sean was also featured on the song when it was released!

Ariana Grande Wows With ‘Problem’

We can’t forget about the girl who sang “Problem” first! Ariana first dropped the hit song back in May 2014, and it’s been a chart-topper ever since.

Ariana’s soulful yet powerful voice was one we could never get out of our heads. It’s hard to imagine such an amazing voice coming from a teeny tiny person!

The singer’s collaboration with Iggy also helped seal the hit song’s deal. Putting together two of the biggest ladies in music? Talk about epic!

Check out Ariana’s performances below:

It’s a tough choice between Ariana and Naya. Both of them have such incredible voices! That’s why we’re leaving the choice in your hands. We wonder what Big Sean thinks about his ladies taking on the same song.
