It’s Results Day for the most recent Battle of the Bands. My battle featured Nancy Sinatra’s classic sassy song These Boots are Made for Walkin’, with battle contenders Nicki Gillis and former Spice Girls’ Geri Halliwell.
It looked like Geri Halliwell was going to run away with this contest as the first six votes that came in went to her. Then Nicki Gillis started to catch up and actually, except for two additional votes for Geri, all the rest went to Nicki. And now I have another tie on my hands! So my vote will be the tie-breaker. How exciting. I love when this happens!
Before we get to my vote however, I have to say that the video I posted of Nicki Gillis didn’t work in a few countries so those bloggers found Nicki performing a live version of the song on YouTube. To those bloggers, Thanks for going the extra mile to find that video and I’m sorry the studio version that I posted didn’t work.
As for my vote: I liked Geri Halliwell just fine and especially liked her giggle at the end of the song, but Nicki Gillis’ rich voice won me over. I liked her strumming and instrumentation better. This song calls for attitude and Nicki definitely gave it. So my vote goes to Nicki Gillis for the win.
Geri Halliwell: 8 votes
Nicki Gillis: 9 votes
As always, thanks for participating in my battle. See you on July 15th for my next battle, which will feature another classic oldie!
