Who Did “Party In The U.S.A.” Better — Miley Cyrus Or Jessie J?

You may know that Brit import Jessie J co-wrote Miley Cyrus’ hit “Party In The U.S.A.”, but we bet you didn’t know what the song would sound like if sung by Jessie herself. Well, wonder no more! The “Price Tag” singer performed the tune during a recent iheartradio concert. So, who sang it better, the American Disney queen or the English lady who actually penned the track? Listen to both below and judge for yourself!

Not like you need any reminding what Miley’s version sounds like, here it is again. (We’d like to note that although we knew this video was popular on YouTube, we are shocked and completely impressed that it has been viewed – dear god – over 211 million times.)

Jessie J – “Party In The U.S.A.” and “Casualty Of Love” (Live)

We can’t believe it, but we much prefer Miley’s version of the party anthem. This song is totally not in Jessie’s range, particularly when she gets into her lower register. Though we have to give points to the English lass, since, as the song’s writer, she more than likely has actually heard a Jay-Z song before.

Who did it better, folks? Miley or Jessie? Tell us in the comments! And check out Jessie talking about writing the song, explaining that “it wasn’t edgy enough” for her album.
