But at the CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 9), he just may have outdone on his “Idol” predecessor in the live-performance department
Underwood and Brad Paisley, in addition to hosting the awards, also performed their hit song “Remind Me” — and we have to say, it wasn’t Underwood’s finest moment. She struggled a little bit with some of the higher notes and generally wasn’t the super-polished performer we now expect her to be.
Granted, she had a lot on her plate Wednesday, and we can probably chalk it up to being a little bobble in a hectic night. But her part of “Remind Me” sounded just a little off.
McCreery took the stage a short time later to perform “Walk in the Country” from his debut album “Clear As Day.” It’s not a super-challenging vocal, but he handled the big stage — in front of what are no doubt some of his musical idols — pretty well.
So what do you think? Which “Idol” turned in the better performance at the CMAs?
