It’s no secret that James Franco LURVES Rihanna - he posted a vid of his masterful lip-synching skills to her song You Da One earlier this month - but did you know he was supposed to play RiRi’s dysfunctional partner in the We Found Love music video??
Soooooo much talent!!! And so many familiar faces - as well as new ones!
We were BLOWN AWAY by all the submissions for our latest "Can YOU Sing?" cover competition! We watched each and every submission and were so happy to see all the different takes on Rihanna's You Da One!
It was tough, but we've selected the best of the best! And wee think RiRi will love all these!!!
In fact, this time it was soooo close that we've got TWO winners this time!
First up, we have Simone Battle. Some of you may recognize her from U.S. X Factor this season, where we think she was unjustly given the boot by the judges far too early. In her cover, she shows the potential and work ethic we saw in her!
Simone Battle HAS the "X" factor! She has the voice, she plays instruments, she has the looks and the charm and her cover is really captures the vibe of You Da One so beautifully. Check out her super dope video to accompany it above!
Tying for first are The Shures and their exquisite take on the song! Soooo pretty!!!
Such beautiful harmonies! Such a sweet take on the tune! Such a clever re-arrangement! Check out below their take on You Da One below!
