no offence to selena fans, i love her very much too, but shes an actress and not really a singer. her records always sound nice, but when you hear her live ... she cant hit the critical notes of her own songs, shes got a nice voice, but not the nessecary vocal range and ability to be a profassional, on the other hand shes an awesome actress and totally worthy of the success she has, but christina ... the girls got the voice and the ability to hit every note in addition she gives every cover her own little twist and she has a looooooooooooooot of talent, she playes the piano by ear, but very well and sings awesome, i hope she hits it big =) i love her already

Wow...She sounds like a really good singer. She hit all the notes, even the really high ones. Only problem, she sang the words a little ripply...Comment if you know what I mean. I am the #1 fan of Selena Gomez, but I wish this Christina Grimmie all the best in her career. She's a LOT more talented than that Rebecca Black!
