I am running very early today – feeling good! The Top 4 Vocal Masterclass article is already online, so I hope you enjoy the read.
We’ll also find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition as the final three are announced this evening at the end of the show. I can’t imagine Crystal leaving nor do I see Michael leaving.
So, it’s a toss between Lee and Casey and I think it may be Casey’s time to go. However, if it was truly based on performances, it would be Lee. But, at this point in the competition, your past performances have an impact as well, so we shall see.
As always, I hope to comment further as the show unfolds and don’t forget to add your opinions as well. You can start now or come back later! The Masterclass Doors are now open for discussion.
Update #1: Fantasia performed and, although I love her style, I am not a huge fan of her voice. She sounds like she inhaled helium – no depth to her voice. She needs to stock up on some serious technical skills. Lovely lady, but, oh dear, her pitch was all over the map.
Update #2: How wonderful. They have family members of the Top 4 on stage. Very cool!
Update #3: Casey is safe! Oh my goodness. I am so happy for him though. He deserved this after what he had to endure over the last two weeks.
Update #4: And along comes Daughtry. Let`s see if Chris is still raising his head to the heavens when he sings. Yep – still does it and, oh lookee here, his voice cracked. What is wrong with these singers? Do they think their voices will last forever? Technique will ensure this, but, sometimes, you have to learn the hard way. He does have a great voice though – really muscular and rich. Chris tells the singers to “Stay hungry and stay with what’s true to you”! Excellent advice for every singer out there.
Update #5: Lee is safe! At first I thought Ryan was sending him home when he said that Lee was headed back to Chicago – but Ryan meant for the Top 3 Homecoming!
Update #6: Well, I guess we know where this is headed,right? Bon Jovi up next!
Update #7: Anyone else think that Simon almost blew his cover when he said that Crystal was the artist they fell in love with….(silence) a few weeks ago(added as an afterthought). I laughed when I heard this. We know she’s the winner Simon – just say it!
Update #8: Crystal is safe and the talented Michael Lynche is eliminated. This is heartbreaking to watch – all the tears from his wife holding their baby daughter. And he is really singing the heck out of his Top 4 song! Very good. I will miss him next week, but someone had to go. (sigh)> Oh dear, now the baby is crying! I need a laugh – time for Frasier reruns!
