Lil Underwhelms

Lil Rounds, “Independence Day”: 13
The problem with this performance was revealed in Lil’s video package. She said she was going to hold back a little to “honor” country and that’s not the point of the show. The point is to find your own voice. And she was just singing it completely straight. And it doesn’t help that the song was Carrie Underwood’s crowning achievement. This was a completely wrong song choice for her. And although Paula was right about singing two verses, she was wrong about the outfit. It was really pretty, but it was completely wrong for that song.

And can I also say good for Simon for not making excuses for Lil. Even he knew it didn’t work…
