Ed Sheeran vs. Hanson: Who Covers Christina Aguilera’s ‘Dirrty’ Better?
Because the world is a beautiful, beautiful place, both Ed Sheeran and Hanson have covered Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty." In one of the legitimately toughest readers polls this PopCrush editor has ever had to write, we have to ask: Whose cover do you like better?
How do we love Ed Sheeran's cover of "Dirrty"? Let us count the ways. First of all, is there anything better than a cover track that not only showcases Ed's ability to completely transform music, but also flaunts his versatility? No, no there is not. The ginger crooner killed it on the acoustic guitar while his vocals were pretty much out of this world -- as to be expected from him, of course. And then, when he took over Redman's rap in a dizzying display of sheer talent, we totally lost it. Slay, Ed Sheeran. Slay. Watch Ed Sheeran's cover in the video below.
Hanson covered Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" way back during their Underneath Acoustic tour in 2003, but let this fan tell you that it has stood the test of time and is a serious favorite, even 12 years later. The guys infuse the performance with a super sultry vibe, giving the track a seriously steamy feel. From Isaac growling "six in the morning," to Zac's soulful singing and a touch of Taylor falsetto, Hanson's cover of "Dirrty" is pretty much everything we have ever wanted. Of course, our fave part of the cover is the band's harmonies at the end, which really give it that trademark Hanson sound. Listen to the band's cover below.
