Debate Round No. 1
GodChoosesLife

Pro

This song is called "We Are" by Kari Jobe, I sung it acapella style and tried to add a bit of a different flavor to it and have some form of noise hitting the background with my singing. Anyways, enjoy and best wishes to my opponent on his round! I look forward to hearing what he will be performing!

I'm voting 3 points per round for a total of 6 to be awarded. Round 1 - Pro was able to really show the range of her voice in this round. Sound-wise, it was easier to hear that Con's. I was able to pick up every word and the beat provided as background meshed well with the lyrics. Con's was difficult to pinpoint. It seemed like the song itself was louder than his bass. While he covered it nicely, I felt the repetitive nature wasn't as impressive as the range and clarity of Pro's vocals and beat. For this, Pro takes the full 3 points for Round 1.
Round 2 - This was a better matched round for me. Pro's vocals were alone this time, no background beat. Con's sound was clearer and it meshed as well with the song as Pro's voice did with the beat in the previous round. I have to still award complexity to Pro, the range was indeed impressive whereas I still felt that Con's song wasn't too demanding as I watched his hands (demanding as in repetitive nature). I also felt Pro was holding back though in this round. My roommate was watching it with me and commented that she "needed more soul", to which I concurred. Still, the range, clarity, and ability to carry notes was impressive. I'm awarding this round 1-1, and holding back the 3rd point due to a lack of performance in regards to both not really giving it, as I see it, there all.

In total, this will end with a 4-1 victory for Pro. Great job to both participants, and best of luck!!

Reasons for voting decision: Ok. This was a lovely music competition round. Good job to you, especially if you both played/sung by ear. 5-string bass? badass... R1: Both pieces were briliiant, pro chose a good piece and sung it almost perfectly; i also like how she provided a nice beat as well. Cons piece was nice as well but It seemed less complex than that of Pro's. R2: Pros piece was nice again but I felt that it wasn't as good as the one in the first round. Pros piece was a lot more awesome than the one in the first round. I also believe that cons piece was somewhat slightly better than marie's piece. In overall terms, I believe that Pro's combined pieces were better and somewhat more complex that the combination on Con's pieces. I dont know if my Rfd makes sense... i am always happy to expand on it.

Reasons for voting decision: This was really tough to decide :( You guys were both great and TN is clearly talented. I guess I have a bit of a singing bias because it had more variety all the way through.

Reasons for voting decision: First round Pro, second round con. I was going to judge round by round and let the third round decide the debate but it was only two rounds. Pro had a great voice and she just nailed the song in R1 , I liked cons round 2 though, i was interesting and pro was weaker in this round than the first. IF I had to edge the debate it would go to pro slightly but there is nothing to go off of because its per round voting in my m ind
