Round Two – Favorite Moment

Jena and Caleb chose their favorite song of the season. Jena wisely chose to go with the King. Her version of ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ never gets old. It’s the same song that made JLo drop the F bomb. Caleb went with Paul McCartney’s ‘Maybe I’m Amazed,’ and although it was nice to see a softer side, Jena won round two.

The winner will be crowned tomorrow night on Fox during a star studded event. Jena will sing with Paramore while Caleb teams up with Kiss for what’s sure to be an epic performance.

Darius Rucker and Jennifer Nettles will also perform. Who do you think will win? My money is on Jena just because she’s more marketable and can sell records. Although I’d rather spend my money on a ticket to Caleb’s concert.
