People seem to be enjoying these ranking games, so how about another one?
Danielle mentioned in the Best Music Video thread that it might be fun if we did a ranking game with Carrie's Idol performances. I hope you don't mind, Danielle, that I'm getting it started . It's an awesome idea!
This is going to work exactly like in the past: you rank the performances and pm me your list. Your top choice gets 20 points in this case, and your bottom choice gets 1 point.
I'm just going to include the performances from semi-finals and beyond.
Here's a handy list of the performances:
Piece of My Heart
Because You Loved Me
When Will I Be Loved
Idependence Day (Top 10)
Hello, Young Lovers
Love Is a Battlefield
When God-Fearin' Women Get The Blues
Bless The Broken Road
If You Don't Know Me By Now
Making Love Out of Nothing at All
Man! I Feel Like a Woman

Can I just say that the Inside Your Heaven performance was way better than the actual studio version? Always gets me.
Also, there are 11 performances of the 20 that are each so spectacular that I had to watch some of them over and over to get a proper ranking. Alone ended up being at number 10, but it's really only slightly weaker than the number one performance. Now THAT'S a competitor.
Did anyone else find Carrie absolutely adorable? I kept going, "D'aww!" and showing my mom like, "OMG LOOK HOW ADORABLE CARRIE WAS!" And she's still adorable, just in a different way now. x)
Anyway, sorry, just thought I'd post those thoughts.
Is there a place where I would be able to watch all of Carrie's performances from start to finish? All I was able to find on YouTube was a compilation of performances but they were abbreviated. I would really like to watch them again in their full duration.
Ui like seeing where everyone puts them- thats why i didnt PM them. Lol. I like seeing where we rank them- and what the outcome is..
It really doesn't matter if they are pm'd or posted here lol. It all counts toward the final rankings. I just thought I'd say people could pm me, so they'd have the option to make their rankings private if they preferred. We are off to a great start so far with 7 people weighing in . The results should be interesting.
I'll likely leave this up for at least a week to give more people a chance to submit their lists.
