In my opinion:

worst:
1.) Britney Spears - I love Rock 'n Roll (Joan Jett)
2.) Jessica Simpson - These Boots are made for Walking (Nancy Sinatra)

best:
1.) Johnny Cash - Hurt (Nine Inch Nails)
2.) Paul Anka - Black Hole Sun (Soundgarden)

Gladly, I haven't heard the Britney Spears version, so I haven't had to puke yet. Simpson, yeah, without the eyecandy, this video/song would totally suck. It just sucks.

Johnny Cash is the best. What a great end of a career. Talk about reinventing yourself!

Just finished watching an Elvis special about how he changed Las Vegas and what do you know, Celine Dion royally screwed up another cover, "Can't Help Falling in Love." It was so bad that I couldn't bear to watch the whole performance.

She totally sucks. Too bad she's the new face of Vegas.
