Today’s leading female Pop stars, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, are no strangers to facing off in the music realm as they’ve seen their works go head-to-head at MTV’s Video Music Awards, the Grammy’s, American Music Awards, and more over the years.
However, January 5th brought with it the opportunity for their respective contributions to films to compete.
As we reported here, both singers were nominated in the 2020 Golden Globes’ ‘Best Original Song’ category for original tunes they created for feline-inspired, reimagined projects. Bey’s critically acclaimed ‘Spirit’ (for Disney’s 2019 live action remake of ‘Lion King’) joined Swift’s ‘Beautiful Ghosts’ (for the 2019 movie adaptation of the classic Broadway tale, ‘Cats’) as nominees in the category.
As their respective fan groups waited with bated breath to see which of the divas would walk away with the prized trophy, they were both stunned to learn it was the legendary Elton John‘s ‘Rocketman’ tune that soared to the gold.
