    The Carrie Underwood All-Time Best Performance Tournament

    So, I was bored earlier this week, and I decided to create my very own performance tournament on my blog. I'm currently in the process of building up my online presence, and since I'm writing for the Examiner about Carrie, I thought this would be a perfect time.

    I have 4 categories: Rock, Ballads, Mid-Tempos, and Covers.

    Unfortunately, I forgot to post Round 1 (Rock) on here. The first bracket was a match up of Carrie's 2008 Grammy performance of Before He Cheats versus her 2009 Grammy performance of Last Name. Well, BHC won, but it was close.

    Starting tonight, Round 2 is a match up of her 2008 performance of JAD versus her 2009 PCA performance of IKYW.

    You guys can vote here:
    The Carrie Underwood All-Time Best Performance Tournament, Round 2: Just a Dream versus I Know You Won’t Music, Words, Passion

    As more brackets open up, I will be posting those links in this thread.

    That is a difficult choice because both performances are sung with such great depth and feeling. Nonetheless, I voted for IKYW>
    Carrie is absolutely gorgeous in both performances.

    JAD is just such a great song but both are what a hard choice but had o go with JAD. I am not going to see it win it seems.

    I had to vote for IKYW it is a great song and I like JAD but have trouble still w/ the lyrics on Jad Is she marry or not. I think that may be why the critics did not show the love for JAD.

    I love IKYW, but I JAD has special meaning to me, and her performance of that song at the 2008 CMA's is my all-time favorite Carrie performance.

    Wait, are we voting based on the song or the technicalities of Carrie's vocals.

    JAD is the better song, but IKYW is the better vocal performance...

    Thank you! In that case, IKYW > JAD and AAG > Wasted. AAG and IKYW are so freaking difficult to sing.

    [Edit] Ugh. But I never really like the way Carrie sang AAG in 2007/2008. She adopted this odd masculine tone for it. She didn't do that with Wasted as far as I know. Eh. I'll vote Wasted. Her accuracy was better on Wasted anyhow.

    All-American Girl," hands-down. I've never been crazy about "Wasted" for some reason.

    Wasted. Although I do prefer her performance from the '07 ACMs.

    Went with AAG here. Although I prefer Wasted as a song over AAG, I loved the AAG performance at the CMT Awards a few years ago!
