For the last Battle of the Bands of 2021, I’ve chosen a couple of new-to-me chanteuses singing Mel Tormé’s classic "The Christmas Song," also known as "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire." One’s a rookie, the other an old pro.
Synne Domért Gullicksen is a Norwegian model, married to Lasse (who, like Mary, is a knitter), with a Persian cat named Nancy, and that’s as much as I know from her Facebook and Instagram pages. This is the only video on her YouTube channel.
Connie’s website tells us she was on Britain’s Got Talent in 2007 (when she was just 6 years old) and "instantly won the heart of the notoriously difficult to please Simon Cowell – yes, that Simon Cowell – as well as the British viewing public." She’s all over social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Spotify).
So, I think everyone knows to do the following:
- Listen to the two songs.
- Decide which song you like the best.
- Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
- Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:
Voting ends next Wednesday, December 22, at 12:00 noon Eastern time, so be sure and get your vote to me by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Synne and Connie!
