Result post for "Sisters" April 1st battle

Welcome to RESULTS DAY for Battle of the Bands!!


I am dc ~ relief, and my battle featured the song, "Sisters" from the 1954 movie, White Christmas. I pitted Rosemary Clooney's version against Peggy Lee's version.


For the first 48 hours, Peggy took the lead and I thought I'd be looking at a shutout or a really bad blowout. The count was 5 - 1 with Peggy in the lead. Suddenly there was a strong turn around, as Rosemary picked up 10 votes. Two last votes came in for Peggy and the count stood at 11 - 7 with Rosemary out front - but not by much!! I enjoyed Peggy's version but my heart kept leaning towards Rosemary. In the end, I voted for her. 

Final tally: 


Rosemary Clooney @ 12 votes


Peggy Lee @ 7 votes


Thank you, everyone for taking time out to vote. I know many are involved with April's A-Z Challenge... as am I, in minion capacity this year. I can't wait to check other's battle results as there were a few hot ones that gave me a tough time.


Today's result post brings a different video but features Rosemary Clooney singing both parts. This is straight from the movie... and especially sent out to FAE... one of our two event hosts. By the way... A very special thank you to our event hosts:

    1. I understand! I did A-Z last year and Minion work too. It will accumulate fast. No problems, Guilie. See you on the 15th.

  2. Thanks Dixie. I giggled through the entire thing. I love that movie and watch it every Christmas. That is my favorite number even though it really has nothing to do with the Holiday. This was a GREAT battle with an outcome I really enjoyed.

    1. You are welcome. I struggled not to give a spoiler alert in my response to your comment.

      Thank you very much. Now I'll have to see if Hank won at your place! Fingers crossed!

    1. I came in real early this time Jeffrey. It's been a week of doctors, with a brain MRI on Friday.

      Glad you won this one!

  4. Looks like I was on the losing end here, but both versions were good. I remember that scene from the movie! Funny stuff. Doing BOTB as well as AtoZ is a bit overwhelming, but I managed to get my results post done. Whew!

    1. I feel for all BOTB-ers doing the A-Z. It is tough keeping up. I'm trying to read all of the posts, plus Minion work.

      Not to worry - Peggy Lee will return later.

  5. Nice Battle, PIGTAILS!
    You know what I always say: "Any time it's within a five-vote margin..."

    The doctor you're seeing tomorrow, his name isn't Pinky, is it?

    1. Cherdo, that's a movie clip. I copied & pasted the link in.

      I'm sorry I'm behind with all BOTH-ers A-Z posts. I'll get there soon.

  8. After I voted and went back for a second listen I began to think I should have voted for Rosemary, but I'm still happy with my vote for Peggy.
