I think it's because it seems like they're trying to match her performance outfits with the song, something which doesn't really work with Carrie. On Wednesday, they're just thinking of making her look good.

I totally agree with you. I told my husband after they were finished singing that Bo and Carrie need to do a duet together. It was fabulous. And, I thought she looked so much more relaxed with the guitar.

Yes, we have been discussing this for weeks! Right, Razorbacker? The same thing with Bo holding the mic stand. It is like they need something to hold on to. Now, I have heard this about Constantine but he does not include playing a guitar in his Bio.

I don't think either one of them got to show off much guitar virtuosity on that song, but I don't think the AI folks wanted them to either. But I would love to hear a Bo-Carrie duet either on CD or in the tour concerts.

Carrie is most definitely in her element when she has the guitar to hold on to. She looked very comfortable & at ease. Carrie was the first to admit last week she wasn't going to do well with the whole dance music theme. She stated flat out that she hasn't had any "clubbing" experience in Oklahoma & it really does show in her performances. But, at least she doesn't try to be something she isn't. She has a great voice & as someone stated on one of these threads country musicians are more noted for entertaining & not performing & this is the style that Carrie is more familiar with. When she gets into the studio does anyone really think her producers are going to say Ok Carrie now we want you to sing a little Disco & follow it up with a big old Broadway tune. That is the problem with these theme nights, all these contestants are asked to sing something they have probably never encountered & most likely never will again. Let them be who they are for cryin out loud!

I thought I heard that while they provide them money, they don't pick the outfits, the contestants do?

I loved Carrie on the results show performance, she was very natural.

It's a bird, it's a plane
I agree, she looked very comfortable. I just figured out who she reminds me of. A cross between Reese Witherspoon and Jon Benet Ramsey.

I find Carrie extremely bland to tell the truth. She definitely has the voice, but her singing doesn't really do it for me. Music is all about feel and emotion, with technical prowess somewhat secondary. Technically Carrie gets praise from me. She can hit her notes and her voice is nice. But the intangibles that seperate greats from talents are severely missing from Carrie. For example, my favourite Carrie performance was "Alone" by Heart. Carrie looked right into the camera, held her mic up, and sang her notes. Where was the power, the emotion, the feel? I could just imagine Nadia killing with that song.
Ms. Underwood also has the nice all-american girl next door image going for her. I'd like to believe that she's the sweet person her appearance suggests, but I clearly remember her being an absolute b*tch to that ditzy Elizabeth girl during group auditions.
And who's brillant idea was it to give her that guitar? It didn't look like she could even play a simple chord on that Tennessee flat-top box.
