    I don't think its any surprise that Carrie is losing by a large margin. Many people just vote based on what they think they know. And since is was so popular to hate Carrie's "maria" than any other actress comparatively was going to do better in a poll. Also, Gaga did what people want now days: Over accentuated Drama with a few flourishes of arm extention. Ask Taylor Swift, that is all it takes anymore. And Gaga gave it "her all". So she was given a great deal of approval for "exhausting herself for it".......plez........... Carrie in the other hand always delivers, and always delivers well, and does not act like she just left her liver on the stage for her audiences approval. Therefore, of course Gaga got the applause. Not remotely surprised.

    Besides the fact that Gaga did not play Maria. She sang a medley at an award show. Not even remotely what Carrie was asked to do.......

    There is no question that Carrie is the Better Maria , her voice is better. Carrie's softer voice in singing the Sound of Music songs is better that Gaga.

    Also Mirasa; The tone of Gagas voice as she tried to do the more classically trained sound did not come across as natural to me. It sounded "put on". Carrie, through her training, sounded much more natural when she transitioned back and forth between chest and head voice.

    I would love to show the world how much we love Carrie, but voting in these polls is hopeless. Gaga has over 44 million Twitter followers.
    I am really ashamed of some of the Country websites, especially CMT, for posting this stupid poll. They should be supporting CARRIE and
    supporting her openly and publically. CARRIE brings in thousands of her fans every week to their video polls and such...how does Gaga
    increase their viewership?? Such jerks.

    ^ Agree. the CMT writer said that Carrie was panned for SOM. That was a RUDE thing to say- and not really true, as the critics loved her singing, not her acting.

    For CMT to say that in their article was offensive and rude. I am so pissed at them!

    CMT should have written an article supporting Carrie and giving HER performance kudos....not leaving the impression that Gaga was better than Carrie.
    How can they be such traitors when Carrie brings so much traffic to their site?? Many of us spend hours every week voting in their video polls and this
    horrible article/poll about our girl is the thanks we get?? Pathetic.

    ....and it showed. Every move was so sequenced it felt completely mechanical and without spontaneity.

    Some of these polls are not showing apples to apples performances. The People magazine one has the audio of MFT from the SOML soundtrack which is not nearly as good as the live version. The one from celebrity news shows Carrie and Stephen dancing and then Stephen singing and finally Carrie sings the last four bars of TSOM. I have to say she sings those four bars exquisitely, but it does seem strange that they aren't comparing more like performances. I think it's ridiculous that they are comparing performances at all, but yay Carrie if she's ahead, lol!
