The Voice’s Sylvia Yacoub vs. The X Factor’s Carly Rose Sonenclar: Who Sang Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” Best? (VIDEOS)

In the world of singing competition shows, we often see duplicate songs, but we never expected to hear the same one twice in one week!

On top of that, this track is hardly ever covered because of its notoriety, but two brave souls tackled Celine Dion’s epic ballad, “My Heart Will Go On”: The Voice’s Sylvia Yacoub and The X Factor’s Carly Rose Sonenclar

Sylvia is this season’s most notorious powerhouse singer of The Voice, and she really showed off her pipes during her performance. Although she stumbled a bit — likely because of nerves — she chose to keep the song in a higher octave, showcasing a lot of raw emotion as the sound built.

She got a bit carried away toward the end with improvisation, but that risk impressed all of the judges. Cee Lo Green even said it was the “second best” (after the original) because he’d never heard anyone cover it before.

Carly Rose’s rendition was the opposite, taking a mellow approach and altering the song to a lower octave. Because of those subtle changes, the 13-year-old singer had more control, and in turn delivered an incredibly powerful performance.

This show-stopper impressed all four of the judges, and L. A. Reid said, “We could be looking at the winner.” Even Simon Cowell was full of compliments, saying, “I don’t believe you’re a human being because you can’t do that at 13. Your control on that song … was absolutely incredible.”

Both girls delivered amazing renditions of the infamous Celine Dion song, but whose performance was best? Watch the videos and vote below!
