O Holy Night Off - Round 2 P7 Kelly Clarkson vs. P3 Bing Crosby
This round 2 match pits the winner of the acapella opening round winner, Kelly Clarkson, verses the popular Bing Crosby. First Clarkson, who like Hill and Glee, lower the key of the song, to Ab, making the high note a very reachable Eb. I didn't like this version the first round, thinking that 'nSync should have moved on. I don't like the background vocals in this version, although I think Clarkson's lead is very good. Finally, she lists her version of OHN as "Oh Holy Night." It is not OH but O. Oh is a moan, O is a word of beauty. Huge pet peeve of mine. Now Bing, who sings the song also in Ab, good for his Bass voice. However, he never goes for the high note, only going up to the C in the chorus. But his voice is a classic Christmas sound and he spells the song right.
