Lea Michele vs. Naya Rivera: Whose Single Should Be on Glee?
We're lucky enough that not one but two of our favorite Glee stars have dropped original singles this year. Indeed, Naya Rivera (Santana) released "Sorry" earlier this year, and Lea Michele's (Rachel) first single "Cannonball" hit iTunes last week. So which one should be performed on Glee?
The two singles have very different sounds, but they also embody the strengths of the two performers. Naya's song has more of an R&B vibe and is appropriate for the club, while Lea's tune is more an uplifting pop ballad that shows off her powerful pipes.
The big question now is: Will either of the two songs show up on Glee? We have yet to hear anything official, but we're inclined to think that the show will use one or both of them. After all, Matthew Morrison (Schue) performed his own original single "Still Got Tonight" in Season 2, Episode 22: "New York."
We could see "Sorry" being used after a character ends up with a guy whom she didn't think she could get, like if Marley were to sing it about her dream guy. And there are any number of reasons why a self-empowerment tune like "Cannonball" could be used. Perhaps Rachel could sing it after enduring some drama on the set of Funny Girl?
So which song would be better suited for an episode of Glee? Let us know!
