Last week, the adorable Paige Miles was eliminated from one of the coveted positions in the Top 10. It really is a shame, she really does have a beautiful voice, but her illness coupled with her inability to cope with her performance anxiety closed the door on this tremendous opportunity.
Hopefully, she will use her American Idol experience wisely and continue to pursue her musical vision. Certainly she has left the competition armed with memorable performing experiences that others can only dream of achieving.
This week the Top 10, known as Aaron Kelly, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Crystal Bowersox, Didi Benami, Katie Stevens, Lee Dewyze, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus and Tim Urban, will be performing Billboard R&B Music.
And, it is very fortunate that Usher agreed to mentor each Top 10 singer prior to the live telecast this evening. So, I am expecting a very good show and much-needed improvement in the performance level of all the singers.
And, to all the Siobhan fans, it seems that the young songstress will eliminate or temporarily retire her powerful “upper note” vocalizing. Personally, I hope it’s the latter – she shouldn’t allow this unique vocal element to permanently disappear from her performances – just use it judiciously and with discretion.
Best of luck to the Top 10 Finalists and feel welcome to add your comments before, during and after the live telecast this evening.
