Are you Team Luda or Team Nelly? Let us know @CapitalXTRA.
Last week, Nick Cannon and Ne-Yo said that they'd like to see Usher and Justin Timberlake jump in Instagram Live to battle it out as fans went back and forth on social media.
"I think Usher gon' body him, just hit-for-hit wise," said Nick, "If he can bring N'SYNC in then that's a different... but if it's just hit-for-hit... cause I mean, Usher just got more albums."
In response, Ne-Yo left a little more room for consideration. "I don't know, though," he said, "I feel like it would be an entertaining battle," to which Nick agreed.
