Review: Carrie Underwood "Home Sweet Home" Motley Crue Cover Featured on Fox’s American Idol

Country star Carrie Underwood will perform her own rendition of Mötley Crüe’s power ballad, “Home Sweet Home,” on American Idol this evening to promote the release of the iTunes studio single. Here a quick overview of Underwood’s take on this 80’s gem:

“Home Sweet Home” The generic pop drum beat coupled with the classic piano riff undermine the brilliance of Mötley Crüe’s original from the start. Even with Carrie Underwood’s top-notch vocal performance during the verses, the lack of heavy guitars and a weak slide-guitar solo quickly certify this remake: a complete disappointment. By restraining the song’s traditional hard rock elements, Underwood is prevented from belting out the powerful choruses that this song requires. 5/10
