Watch: Elton John Bests Beyoncé, Taylor Swift For ‘Best Original Song’ Honor at 2020 Golden Globes

Published: Sunday 5th Jan 2020 by Rashad

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.

    Spirit is such a bad song.

    Beyonce doesnt deserve to win .
    Same with that horrible Taylor swift song from cats
    The Grammys love beyonce, so she will probably win the Grammy for spirit

    I don’t see the surprise here.

    No surprise. I hate sore losers and BOY the face of B and J; WOOOOOO child; you can’t and won’t win them all. Maybe the faces were screwed up because Elton told the truth about his version of Lion King and the new version; OH well:)

    A white gay man won are we surprised ? Nope, the golden didn’t even nominate When They See Us & didn’t bother to watch Queen & Slim for consideration so we know how they get down.

    You sissies love to hate on her just because the majority adores her and she’s unproblematic. Yet y’all don’t say much about Taylor Swift and her being. H03 dating 10 men the last decade. Smh just admit y’all don’t like her because you can’t find a flaw. Hating raCOONS

      Remember that time beyonce did black face?

      Her fans send death threats to women who breath the same air with jay z and she keeps quite.

      She stole from African artists for her spirit video

    The fact that Beyonce and Taylor was even nominated for those garbage songs that flopped is proof that they can buy themselves any award nomination SMMFH

  11. Cûûmila Cebolla January 6, 2020

  12. Keith January 6, 2020

  14. Chainlightning January 6, 2020

    Poor Elton.

    The fact that his name was alongside these simpletons was foul. Legends should be among other legends.
