    Even though I didn't list it (I figured everyone else would), How Great Thou Art. I can't stress enough its level of divinity.

    ISBY is so overrated on CF. I mean, really. On what planet was ISBY ever better than Praying For Time?

    Right? There are six songs on here that are so grossly inferior to Change.

    I actually really like the ISBY performance, I even listed it on my picks...She sounds incredibly tender on it.

    I LOVE the PFT performance as well. She looks AMAZING and her tone is this amazing mix of accusation and hopelessness.

    I know she was nowhere near as good back then as she is today, but I'd've loved to see more of her Idol performances, particularly Sin Wagon. They hold a special place in my heart because I fell in love with her initially just watching her Idol performances. And, c'mon, Carrie trying to be Natalie Maines and talking about mattress dancing? HOW COULD YOU NOT PICK THAT? :P

    Each one of these performances is phenomenal; I love that each one is different, yet each has something special about it.

    My vote goes to HGTA; she was at a whole different level that night. It made me proud to be a country music fan. And it is also very special to me personally.

    The CMA performance of JAD is my all-time favorite Carrie performance. Just gorgeous.

    ISYB and Desperado are criminally underrated. I adore both to pieces.

    Anyone who says Carrie can only sing country needs to watch "Walk This Way." The woman is a hardcore rocker. I gained even more respect for her as a singer and performer after watching it.

    The CMA performance of "So Small" deserves to be here. One of her best ever. <3 Her Stripped performance of "Bless The Broken Road" belongs here, too.

    The "I Know You Won't" performance was one of the best live performances I've ever seen from anyone. Brilliant. The IHeart radio performance is also underrated.

    Speaking of underrated; another one of my all-time favorites:





    My Top 5:

    1. HGTA
    2. Walk This Way
    3. Just A Dream CMA
    4. Neon Moon
    5. I Know You Won't

    Since her performance of HGTA is the greatest performance by anyone, ever... I picked that one!

    You can say that again.


    Shocked ISBY made it over PFT. It's not even close. ISBY is okay but nothing special. Carrie's "Praying For Time" performance is just on a WHOLE different level. No comparisons.



    Just listen to how Carrie uses her voice- that RAWNESS and control she displays is so powerful in the performance.

    Also, I would have chosen Carrie's I-Heart and Fanclub (07) version of "Alone" because she sings a lot more with even more strength than the Idol days. Plus, she does that scream.

    I also would add the iHeart Alone. She sings it with so much more emotion than the AI one. If you had added Alone from the iHeart special I would have had a hard time picking but I went with HGTA because as was said she was on a different level that night.

    6) Love In an Elevator - Crossroads (the original east-coast version before they edited the crap out of it)
    7) Fix You - VH1 Unplugged
    8) Alone - iHeart Radio
    9) Louisiana Woman / Mississippi Man - Christmas Special
    10) San Antonio Rose - 2007 Grammys

    YES. As many accusatory songs as Carrie has recorded on her albums, she has NEVER sounded this scathing and this angry. And she does it so effortlessly.

    Hi All,

    For the Blown Away tour, which live performances have been exceptional? We all know that Carrie is consistently strong night after night, but what performances have really stood out and could be considered truly great? Please refer to city, song and mention if video exists.

    Thanks,
    SC

    This. I prefer it to the IHeart performance, actually.

    Couple things...first off I am actually pretty surprised HGTA is winning by so much. It is AMAZING of course, but when I was tallying up all the results for the poll, it was tied with just about everything else. But then again, we didn't get a ton of responses for the suggestions portion of this poll. And sorry about CNN Heroes...it probably should have been included! Like I said, there were many ties, and I was pretty tired lol so I may have miscounted.

    Temporary Home!! The rose petals falling down and the harps playing reminded me of what heaven will be like.

    Carrie's Sin Wagon performance was awesome! It was the first time she really let loose on Idol!!
