Who Had the Better Beyoncé Cover: John Mayer or Ed Sheeran?

(Getty Images)John Mayer is currently on tour in Australia, where he's splitting his time between concert festivals and arena shows. This week, he treated a crowd in Adelaide to a very special treat: An acoustic cover of Beyoncé's love anthem "XO."

Mayer stripped the song down to a few chords, punching it up with a bluesy harmonica solo. He also tweeted his appreciation for Mrs. Carter a few days ago, writing, "The best thing about Beyoncé? The break in her voice on the first "baby, love me lights out" in XO. Real and raw."

Mayer is not the only folksy songwriter type pulling out Beyoncé covers. Ed Sheeran, currently promoting his upcoming album X, unveiled a full cover of "Drunk in Love" live on Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show a few days ago. It's pretty hot. He does a great job with "Surfboart."

So: Two different songs, two different artists, one inspiration. Who had the better Beyoncé moment?
