Who Sang It Better? X Factor’s Jason Brock vs. Glee’s Marley and Rachel “New York State of Mind”
Entertainer/Dancer/Singer/Vocal Magician Jason Brock earned standing ovations from the judges in his X Factoraudition on September 13th, singing Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind." But he's not the only one who's made a big impression with the classic song this fall. Over on Glee, the season kicked off introducing newcomer Marley (Melissa Benoist) via a long-distance duet with star Rachel (Lea Michele), also singing the song.
Jason's performance earned him big words of praise from L.A. Reid, who called his performance "flawless," and from Demi Lovato, who said he was amazing. We think the San Francisco native is going to go far on the show as long as he keeps showing off his rich-sounding pipes.
Marley and Rachel gave a moving performance, showcasing two very different styles which worked together beautifully. Rachel sang it from New York as her first performance at her new school on Glee, while Marley sang the song at her audition.
So, what do you think. Whose version moved you more?
