"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?


glee was the best! (: glee all the way


Loved the AI version, great chemistry there


Let me say this. I Love this song. I really liked watching it on American Idol. But I just watched the the glee version. IT WAS FANTASTIC! Glee took this one away by a long shot!


I'm with Liz. Lindsay Pavao's version was amazing!


How about The Voice Lindsay Pavao's version? That one was great.


The best version of this song, by far, is the cover by Walk Off The Earth


Matt and Darren completly rocked it!


GLEE by far the best.
