    Live Performance Elimination - Round One, Group Four

    Thanks for voting again! Desperado, Blown Away/TBC, and Undo It will all be moving on to the next round. In an interesting turn of events, we had a tie between Fix You and So Small, so both songs will move onto round two.

    Here's how things will work:

    I've posted a poll with round one, group four. I've decided to divide this first round into a few groups because the board won't allow a poll with 34 options haha. I'll post the match-ups below and you will vote for one out of each match in the poll. I will keep track of which songs win each match, and when we've worked our way through all the first round songs, we'll start round two with the winners from round one. We will keep working our way through the rounds until we have our final showdown and the ultimate winner. Please pay attention to the matches when voting.
    Time to vote for the final round one showdown!!

    You have until Friday night to vote.

    Round One, Group Four:

    Blown Away (Billboard) vs. Two Black Cadillacs (ACM)

    Neon Moon (B&D tribute) vs. Wine After Whiskey (Opry)

    Jesus Take The Wheel (Wal-Mart Soundcheck) vs. Jesus Take The Wheel (Rockefeller Center)

    See You Again (CMT) vs. Making Love Out of Nothing at All (Idol)

    60s Medley (Christmas special) vs. O Holy Night (Christmas Special)

    Carrie always sings Blown Away well - but the performance in the first pairing was rather heavily overlaid for me by stage effects, which I feel are sometimes over-used in these showcases. Effects were also used in TBC, but I felt that the balance was struck rather better, with less distraction from the music and singing. Carrie was particularly expressive in phrases like 'waiting for the right time' and 'walked away', and that performance gets my vote.

    Neon Moon was the standout in this whole round for me. I prefer Carrie's presentation in this type of song, where she gets the balance between voice and emotion so well. It's also demanding to sing an established song in the close presence of the original artists, and Carrie showed both sensitivity and confidence here.

    Of the two JTTW performances, I found the Walmart version the more sensitive. I was particularly struck by the vocal variations, where Carrie was able to bring out the range of emotions through changes of pace and register.

    SYA is probably my least favourite recent Carrie song (and the addition of the choir only served to emphasize the impact of the choruses which, for me, are the least attractive part of the song). Nevertheless, I am voting for it, as a tribute to Carrie's sincere commitment and emotional involvement in the performance.

    the 60s medley was interesting, as a novelty item, and evidence of Carrie's versatility as a performer. However, as so much of the performance belonged to the other singers, and the choice of songs seemed to give little opportunity for variation, it's difficult to rate it as a standout performance. I voted here for O Holy Night as an example of a vocal style that Carrie can excel at.
