Popular Music Genre - Online performances, compare and contrast them

Paper instructions:
The report assignment will be graded according to this rubric Actions.

Criteria for this report:You will choose three (3) online performances and compare and contrast them. Each performance should feature a different artist.

The performances must be in a popular music genre (e.g. rock, hip-hop, r&b, country, jazz, etc.), not classical music or world music! YouTube will be a good resource for finding appropriate videos.

The performances each need to be no more than one song.

The music must be an integral part of the performance, not just background or incidental.

You will provide the URL for each of the performances viewed.
If you're unsure as to whether or not your choices meet the above criteria, contact me by message.
