jena irene christina grimmie cant help falling in love Watch 'The Voice's' Christina Grimmie vs. 'American Idol's' Jena Irene on 'Can't Help Falling In Love'In a span of less than two weeks, two female reality singing competition show contestants offered up their own versions of Elvis’ 1962 classic “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” So, who sang it better, “The Voice’s” Christina Grimmie or “American Idol’s” Jena Irene? Vote below in our poll!

Honestly, it’s hard to choose a favorite. What’s so awesome about the two performances is that each girl makes the song totally her own, but they are also fairly different versions from each other. We like Christina’s opening better, but prefer Jena’s ending, which is interesting.

It’s definitely neat to listen to the versions side-by-side, because Jena and Christina have such different tones to their voices and both are incredibly good. Kudos all around!

“American Idol” has its Top 2 performances Tuesday (May 20) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX and “The Voice” crowns its winner Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.
