Battle of the Bands Results – Rod Stewart vs. LeAnn Rimes


This was a close battle! The Song was (If Loving You is Wrong) I Don’t Want to Be Right, best known by Luther Ingram. I pitted LeAnn Rimes against Rod Stewart for the battle.

The votes came in and it was neck and neck for most of the voting period. My choice in the battle is LeAnn Rimes. I liked her version of the song because hers was more emotional. I think she did a fabulous job with the song. Rod did a great job too…and who doesn’t like Rod Stewart with his signature raspy voice?! But I simply liked LeAnn’s version better.

The winner is Rod Stewart. He got 3 more votes than LeAnn. The tally looks like this:

Rod Stewart:       13 votes

LeAnn Rimes      10 votes

Thanks to all who participated and especially thanks to all who read and commented on my Love Lost or Found blog-hop piece. This was definitely a fun battle, teaming it up with a blog hop.

See you all on the 15th for our next battle!

  1. Hi, Michele!

    You pulled off another close band battle, dear friend, and I congratulate you! I went old school cool and voted for Rod. I was actually surprised to see how many people preferred LeAnn’s version, not that there is anything wrong with it, but by virtue of the fact that Rod’s version is contained on his hit album Foot Loose & Fancy Free which went to #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. To me, Rod’s rendition is definitive.

    Thank you, dear friend Michele, and enjoy the rest of your week!

    • Thank you Shady! Yeah, we didn’t agree on this one. But at first I did think I would vote for Rod and I listened to both versions several times before deciding…

      Have a good week!


    • Actually, you didn’t vote. You said you’d skip voting this time around. I think you weren’t feeling well. Hope you’re better now…
