Carrie missed an awesome opportunity with that first song to bring down the house. I wish she had sung it about a third higher for starters. Her interpretation was all off and she sang everything exactly the same. She thinks that if she smiles and belts, that's enough. It's not. The words to this song are really great, but I just don't think that girl ever has a clue as to what she is singing about:
Oh Lord Please forgive me
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Need a little bit more of that sweet salvation
They may take me
With my feet draggin'
But I'll fly away on a sin wagon
Her second song was a total mess.
Bo's first song was boring. With all that country music out there, this is what he picked? What was this Alabama boy thinking? He was terrific with the 2nd song.
Vonzell--rumors of a death in the family or of her dog abound. In any event, first song was dreadful, 2nd song was very good. Not as good as the original but really a very good effort.
Even though I am not a fan of his, I thought that Anthony was the surprise best overall performer this evening. Carrie could learn about interpreting song lyrics from Anthony.
