Mel’s Music Matchup: “I Will Be” (Avril vs. Leona)

New section: Which song version is better?

Avril wrote the song, and recorded it first on her 2007 album The Best Damn Thing.

But Leona covered the song on her 2007 album Spirit, releasing it as her third single.

I think I like Avril’s version better.  It’s a lot crisper sounding, and less showy.

But Leona has Chace Crawford in her video, so that does earn like a bajillion points.

Whose is better?
