Joe McElderry Vs. Carrie Underwood: Who Did The More Boring Version Of "There's A Place For Us"?

Now here's some bullshit. Joe McElderry's next single off flop album Wide Awake is the ballad "Someone Wake Me Up," the video for which premiered today. (Note: apparently, as I have "cloth ears", I didn't realize "Someone Wake Me Up" is an energetic mid-tempo floorfiller, not a ballad.)

The clip features scenes from the upcoming Narnia: Curse of The Threaded Whorebag movie, or whatever the hell it's called.  That said, the song won't be found in the film. Rather, the b-side (single is out in the UK on December 5), "There's A Place For Us," does.

But don't expect to hear Joe's version in the flick in the States. Carrie Underwood also recorded her own snoozy rendition, which will play during the end credits here.

Listen to her trash, plus a live version of Joe singing the track:

I'd ask who sings the song better, but both have finally cured my insomnia. ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
