Who Did It Better?... America ...

Last time, it was Lea and Chris both singing Defying Gravity.
Lea whupped Chris's butt (something I would like to do).

So now onto the NEXT round....

This was a hard one for me to choose to be honest.

Glee v the Original Cast "America" from the musical West Side Story.

I can't choose on this one - I love both equally.

Enjoy !


Original cast featuring Rita Moreno

Wow Damien, you sure do not make this easy. But then again, that's the way it should be.

I think that both are really good. Generally, I am not a big fan of Glee anything. I think this has a lot to do with my age (over 70). I think the sound was much better then on the original and I was surprised at just how much I did enjoy it.

But for me, gotta go with Ms Moreno and the Original Cast. Still blows me away when I hear it.

Have a good one.

Ms Moreno and the Original Cast have it over Glee, they dance,sing & act with perfection. Did George Chakiris really say "Queer for Uncle Sam" at the start. lol.

D, you are evil! This was so tough. The Original cast are fantastic but I got goosebumps during the Glee version, so they got my vote for that reason only.

Roy - Glad you enjoyed. ms Moreno REALLY brought the Chutzpah.

discodevil - that's what I thought he said!

Tom - Glad you enjoyed. *I* couldn't choose between them myself.

How did I miss this round of my favorite game? UGH... crazy week! Let's play...

When I saw the selections, I was thinking there's no question. No one can beat the original. But after watching the videos, I was torn.

I can't believe I'm saying this... GLEE gets my vote. Sorry Rita!
