    It makes me laugh thinking about Joel talking about Christina Aguilera`s hair because it makes me think off a graveyard girl leaving the chat kinda thing 😂 😂.

    Claiming some singers are worse than others just because they don't write their own songs is so stupid and makes 0 sense. Should actors write their own scripts too then? As long as the singer does justice to the song and interprets it beautifully, it doesn't matter. If all singers wrote their own songs, a lot of songwriters (the ones who can't or don't want to sing) would be out of a job

    It might just be me being an old head but I feel like artists from a while back really made tracks they didn't write their own in a more convincing way. I never actively thought Christina Aguilera wrote Beautiful, but she performed it in such a way that it felt like hers. Idk if I can say that for a lot of modern songs, but I guess that's the same for Beautiful's contemporaries.

    Yes Ed is great but you can't say anything about the 1D boys. They wrote most of their music and were very involved with their music and deserve more credit for what they did write and comeup with. " If I could Fly " was written by Harry Styles and that is a very personal song just like " Little Things ". Not to mention that they were Number One in over 35 countries and sold out some of the biggest stadiums in the world in hours and even minutes.

    I personally never liked Uptown Funk that much, I mean I still think it a good and fun upbeat song, however not my favorite of his... So I would personally pick BTS dynamite, because it's a fun, upbeat song, which purpase is to make me happy, which it succeeds to and I just like it way more. However I will agree with BTS having better songs, so I'm kind of surprised whoever made this, did choose one of the many songs in which they contributed to themselves, like there's so many! Also I would personally pick Rihanna as well, however I'm kind of questioning putting it up against Taylor's, considering how different they are in style. With the One Direction vs. Ed Sheeron, I don't think I could choose between those two songs myself. I'm not part of either fandoms, however the writing within both songs as well as their voices, with Ed sounding really personal, but One Direction having so many voices that sound beautiful together makes it difficult for me. However wether or not you pick one or the other, Ed still ends up winning as he has created two beautiful songs 😂
