Battle of the Bands Results - Bring Me To Life

Jeffrey Scott came back to the Battle of the Bands with a powerful song. And win or lose, each contestant seemed to do well with all voters. Though the vote wasn't the closest I've ever seen, kind comments for both were encouraging. (Okay, there were a few negatives, but that's the nature of the beast. This battle, featured American Chris Daughtry vs the UK's Katherine Jenkin's.

The first round of the battle went to Chris with an impressive 3-1 lead. But would this be enough of a lead to maintain.
Chris Votes - Shady, Janet & Alex
Katherine Votes - Arlee

The second round insured Chris was to keep his lead. Voting for Chris had surely come to life. But would the second round help out Katherine?
Chris Votes - Janie, Mary & mike
Katherine Votes - Stephen

The third round did bring some new life to the game. This round was won by Katherine. Perhaps she could make a comeback as powerful as her beautiful voice. We shall see.
Chris Votes - Michele
Katherine Votes - Birgit & GB Miller

Perhaps if more showed up to vote, the outcome would have been different. The fourth and final round was a draw. However, having won the first two rounds, this puts Chris as the ultimate winner of this Battle of the Bands.

Do you remember I have some kind of a theme running?
Can you figure it out?

Arlee Bird - In the case of your battle I really like Daughtry, but the outcome of the race for me is a squeaker. I'm going give the opera singer an edge though. I cast my vote for Katherine Jenkins.

Shady Del Knight - This is my third BOTB vote of the day and another very difficult decision. Both of your selections are superb, the kind of music you would find in my personal collection. Katherine Jenkins is drop dead gorgeous (your new dream girl replacing Diana Krall?)

Janet Miles - As for the battle, I was going to vote for Katherine but then I listened to Daughtry again and he seems to sing the song as if he really needs to be brought back. I don't get that feeling from Ms. Jenkins. Also interestingly, I don't like Evanescence!

Mary Burris - OH boy! Do I go for the rocker, or do I go for the one that stayed pretty true to the original? Well, it *IS* Rocktober this month, so I think I'm going to give my vote to Daughtry.

Stephen T. McCarthy - I have just one word about Daughtry's performance: annoying, annoying, annoying! (That was one word. I just repeated it three times, that's all.) Seriously, that was like "MEATLOAF singing" -- heavy on the histrionics; ten dollars worth of emotion in a ten cent song.

Birgit - No doubts for me....Katherine Jenkins all the way! In fact I have her album with this song on it. She has a tremendous voice and just brings it home for me especially this song.

Michele Truhlik - I really felt Daughtry's. His version is very powerful and emotional. I liked Katherine's until it got opera-y. I'm not keen on the opera sound.

G. B. Miller - I have the c.d. that contains the original (I'm very strange that way, will buy the entire c.d. for one song. 99% of the time it's a good thing), so I'm a bit biased in that aspect.

DiscConnected - I liked the Katherine Jenkins version ok, but since I am a fan of Daughtry's "Meat Loaf" singing, as McCarthy put it, he sort of had my vote locked before I hit "play."

Cathy Kennedy - Jeffrey, WOW, you put together two different styled artists going head to head on a Evanescence's biggest song! This is a good song for Chris and he pulled it off beautifully while keeping it close to the original. The real surprise for me came with Katherine Jenkins. I thought, "Ok, this isn't a song up her alley." and yet she did a fantastic job. Her vocals are far, far better Amy's and I loved Jenkins lighter rendition which didn't make me think about death.

diedre Knight - Katherine Jenkins is really good, but I'm hooked on Doughtry!


Please note: I will be offline for the entire weekend. I will return Tuesday to comment and answer comments.
My next battle will be October 15th.

Once again, thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.
See you next battle.
Who will you vote for?
What song will I choose?

    1. No worries, I wasn't suggesting people ought to change their votes. I would never do that. Consider it a hint.

  3. That was a good comeback battle. However your vote count is incorrect since my vote as well as yours and Stephen's each count as 5 votes. Therefore by my recount Katherine wins with 18 to Daughtry's measly 9 votes.

    I'm pretty sure that this is correct, but you can ask Stephen to make sure.

    So there.

  4. Hi, Jeffrey!

    You and I voted for different artists but that doesn't mean I am not impressed with Katherine. She has quite a voice and she's easy on the eyes. I enjoyed the second video you offered. As far as it representing a clue or a running theme, all I can think of is that you might be leading up to revealing who is buried in Grant's Tomb, that is unless Geraldo Rivera beats you to it.

    Have a great weekend, good buddy!

    1. We always seem to be at odds with our picks. I'm going to try and get back to including my own votes. I got away from it for awhile.
      As for Geraldo Rivera, he's probably busy with a vault.
      SPOILER ALERT! There is only an old Coke bottle discovered.

  5. I'm glad Daughtry's emotional take on the song won. I just can't get into Katherine Jenkins for some reason. I listened to the other song you posted here and it's just not my thing. That shouldn't be a surprise though, I'm such a classic rock 'n roller... :)

    Good Come-Back battle Jeffrey!

    1. I've never been big on opera music, but I have to admit she has a lovely voice. I think I could listen to her sing a few more songs.

      Delete
  6. I think since I have her CD Katherine gets 6 more votes and therefore wins:) She was also on Dancing With The Stars and was a great dancer and so humble and sweet.
