I am going to vote as Patmos did, the winner takes all. The criteria I will be using to judge will be song choice, voice quality, and performance (not necessarily in order of weight). Since there were five rounds of five songs, I will pick a winner for each round and the one who has the most round wins will win the debate.
I humbly submit my vote...
-Pro: This was probably my favorite of your performances in the debate. You have a special gift most singers don't have and that is your voice has a distinctive and emotional quality to it. I felt "Knocking on Heaven’s Door" was a perfect choice for your voice. I'm giving you the edge on song choice and vocal quality.
-Con: I liked the song rendition of "High Hopes", very cool! I'm giving you the edge on performance.
- Vote: Very close call, but I feel Pro edged it out based on Song Choice and vocals. R1 winner is Pro.
-Pro: Another great song choice that plays to your distinctive voice. "Fix You" is one of my all time favorite songs. I've actually done a cover of this song on my youtube channel. Let me know if you want a link to it. Again I have to give you the edge on song choice and vocal quality.
-Con: I didn't feel this was your best vocals of the debate. I did enjoy the performance of "Feeling Good!" I love Michael Buble! I again gave you the edge on performance.
-Vote: Pro won this round based mainly on better vocal quality.
-Pro: Again I thought you did a good job with song choice for your voice. I did not think your vocals on "Hallelujah" were as good as the first 2 rounds.
-Con: Your song choice was excellent in this round. Played well to your voice. I feel like you nailed it on this performance.
-Vote: Con was clearly the winner in this round. Con won on Song Choice, Vocals, and Performance.
-Pro: Another spot on song choice. You really know how to play to your voice. Loved your vocals also. Well done rendition of "My immortal!"
-Con: This type of song, "I'm Not A Vampire" is clearly your wheelhouse! Great job!
-Vote: Man this is so close, but I'm giving the edge to Con on an excellent song choice for his style of vocals. Con wins R4.
-Pro: Great song choice as usual. "Hello" is the type of song that leaves no wiggle room on pitch and I felt that you started strong and ended strong, but in the middle you went off a few times. Overall, though, it was a great job.
-Con: "This is Home" was by far your best vocal performance of the debate! You nailed the vocals on this song! Well done!
-Vote: The winner of this round is Con.
-Con won 3 out of 5 battle rounds, so Con is the overall winner of the debate.
-Pro started out strong, but Con ended on the high note. If this were an up or down vote on who has the better voice and which songs I liked more based on my own subjective opinion, I would have given Pro the win. Smooth jazz and pop ballads are more my "cup of tea." However, this was a round by round battle based on very different songs and singing styles and looking at the debate objectively I felt Con edged out the wins on some very close battles. Well done to both of you!
smule.com is down for me, is it also down for you?
I did learn from this debate that I need to listen to more classical to balance out the metal. I kept expecting the melodic piano in "Hello" to break out into a heavy guitar riff.
Can you please remove my CVB?
Thanks for the extensive feedback and analysis, wasn't expecting this much feedback! Appreciate it man.
Thank you so much for your vote and analysis!
I strongly suggest using Choose Winner in future for this type of "troll debate."
And yes, even as a member of the moderation team I still voice my disagreement with that term being applied to all non-moderated debates.
Nope. Vote however you want.
Before I submit my vote were there any debate rules that y'all agreed to that were not mentioned in the description?
Thanks for the vote!
I suppose you can vote however you want
So how am I supposed to award points? Winner takes all?
Debate over. Please vote if you can :)
I might vote on this later
Less than 2 days remaining
This is certainly a unique style of debate. Well done guys!
thanks man :)
Enjoying the song battle! Keep up the great work!
SUPADUDZ FIRE ALBUM SOON
I only know one song that they play, so I'm not sure.
Does panic at the disco still count as rock and roll or only their old stuff lol?
Do something rock and roll.
Posted my round. Wanna do a duet just for fun?
You can link the smule itself to save you time. Thats what I did with GCL.
"I have no idea how I would write an RFD on this debate."
There are various methods on how to score debates like this, my preferred method is to declare a winner by round and add up whoever has the most points.
Same here. BTW for the record, I'm using the Smule app to make my recordings and will be posting it to YouTube.
Sounds good, looking forward to it. :)
I'm just getting over a head cold. I'll have my first video up by Wednesday.
I have no idea how I would write an RFD on this debate.
Winner get's to compete on next season of america's got talent. Winner will also definitely by virt, but should be fun regardless. :)
Interesting. Do we send the winner to MTV, or a show that actually plays music?
