“That is sexy,” Shakira said about the performance, and we couldn’t agree more.
Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to Christian about his version, which he says is a cover of a popular YouTube take on the song.
“My version was influenced by a YouTube star by the name of Noah Guthrie,” Christian told us. “I took his version, and I covered his version.”
“That’s where the whole concept of the song came from, but I really took it into my own hands and really worked with the band and definitely made it my own,” he continues. No arguments here.
And the song had already gotten a unique reality-show spin on it last year when CeCe Frey soulfully covered it for The Voice.
So whose version is better? We love them both, so it’s seriously hard for us to choose. Christian gets extra points for playing the guitar and almost turning the tune into a whole new song, while CeCe gets credit for her leopard print and all her CeCe-ness.
But whose rendition do you like more? Get sexy and let us know.
