No one can beat the original. Aretha's simply the best. The cute guy's version is incredible also.

Aretha's version wasn't the original. Otis Redding wrote and first performed the song, and Franklin later recorded it and made it her own. Of course her version became her signature song, and many people forgot that Redding's recording was the original, prompting him to good-naturedly say "I just lost my song. That girl took it away from me."

Aretha, of course. Hell, that's like asking whether I'd rather see Humphry Bogart & Ingred Bergman or Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez doing the movie Casablanca.

Aretha's is my favorite, but as someone noted above, it's Redding's song, and he had a big hit with it. Strange that it isn't on the list.

Some are songs are better rendered than the original.

But NOT when the original is by Aretha.

There is nobody like.
On the other hand Aretha can render other artists songs better than the original

Aretha stole "Respect" from Otis Redding, just like Jimi Hendrix stole "All Along the Watchtower" from Bob Dylan. ;)

Aretha. It depends actually. Cute guy will be my pick during the gay pride though. lol

Aretha.

Kelly and Fantasia both have good voices but I don't think the song fits them all that well. Cute guy is only kind of cute anyway.

Always vote for the cute guy ;)
nah, I doubted between Aretha and the cute guy in blue, but then I saw he hadn't received a single vote, and I felt sorry for him.
And his performance was really good too of course :p

I wouldn't say she stole it, I'd just say she just did a better job of performing it. AsMarvin Gaye did with "Heard it through the Grapevine".

Aretha of course! She has boatloads more talent then the others (not that they are not talented). It is a case of Aretha being a rare breed, a force of nature! Not many come along with that kind of enourmous talent!
