Sledge Grits Band doesn't make Round 2 - What were voters thinking?

The Sledge Grits Band on the set of the CBS Early Show

Major bummer, but the girls from Sledge Grits Band did not make it to the second round of CBS Early Show's "Singing Family Face-Off." They were topped by J4 of Tennessee in online voting.
Personally, if it was based on performance alone, Sledge Grits killed it. It was over from the moment MiMi Sledge slid over to the judges panel and belted out "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" with a voice stronger than her deceitful 8 years of age. It was OVER!
Alas, it wasn't meant to be. The girls are home now, exhausted, but still proud of their achievement.
"When we were performing I was so excited,” said Keiko Sledge, the 14-year-old bassist. “You have these three judges in front of you who were expecting us to bring it. I just looked at my three sisters and said let's do it!”
It was done, but sadly, they deserved better.
