Usually, it’s a music competition (un)spoken rule that you do NOT sing Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey or Celine Dion.
However, on the X Factor last night, two contestants decided to take the risk and cover Whitney’s classic, I Will Always Love You… and they BOTH did pretty dayum good!
First, check out Paige Thomas’ rendition (above), who, despite being shaky with nerves, ended up delivering!
Next up? CeCe Frey, who clearly won the sing-off battle, with Simon even saying she “nailed it!”
Take a look at CeCe’s Whitney cover and find out which of the ladiez made it through to the next round… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
While both Paige and CeCe made it through to the next round, L.A. Reid did say Paige will be “compared to another performer who looks similar.”
Ever since Paige took the stage at auditions, she’s drawn comparisons to Rihanna, which MAY end up hurting her in the long run.
