"Somebody That I Used to Know": Who Did it Better, American Idol or Glee?

by at . Comments

Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" was apparently the song of the week on Fox. Two hit shows on the network featured covers of it in as many nights!

Tuesday, on Glee, Matt Bomer’s guest appearance as the older brother of Darren Criss' character featured a scene in which the two duet on the catchy track.

While it was something of an odd choice to have brothers singing this song, as its lyrics imply a breakup between a couple, the guys absolutely killed.

Wednesday, on American Idol's top seven performance show, Phillip Phillips and Elise Testone tag-teamed it. Which cover was better? Watch both and vote below:

Which show's cover of "Somebody That I Used to Know" was best?

I watch both Glee and American Idol faithfully, and I really like Elise and Phillip.In fact, Phillip is my pick to win it all, BUT, the Glee version was way better!! Not only because of rehersal time. The glee version was just better, period!! Darren Criss and Matt Bomer were terrific with great intensity!! After hearing it on Glee, when I heard it on American Idol I was REALLY disappointed. GLEE ALL THE WAY!!!

The American Idol version was Live not Canned like Glee and it was far superior. First of all, none of the other 3 Singers can compare to the rich tones and beautiful melodies that Elise Testone produces. That girl is a singer. I like Phillip Phillips, too & Matt Bohmer & the Glee kid have nice voices, but they just aren't in the same category. And Elise and Phillip do sing well together. Elise Testone is the real deal and is going to be a big star and I would bet that Phillip Phillips will be, too.
