Battle of the ballads

Two US soul divas have weepy ballads lined up for their next single, but who's best?

Is it Timbaland protégé Keri Hilson, with the synth-heavy angst anthem Energy. Or is it Alicia "piano" Keys and her ode to female empowerment / Helen Slater, Superwoman?

Both artists have cleverly created visual metaphors for their song title in the video. Hilson is expending lots of energy by training for a boxing match, which is a bit like a troubled relationship, isn't it? Keys features several vignettes about women who are totally super, and stuff.

Watch the clips and cast your vote. The winner gets our eternal respect and a bowl of gummy bears.

Keri Hilson - Energy

Alicia Keys - Superwoman
