Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 12: Las Vegas Rounds -Group One Gals
So, here is a neat little twist this season. The Top 40 semi-finalists have the opportunity to perform before a live but pre-recorded audience in Las Vegas.
I like this. Sort of America’s Got Talent ish. It will be interesting to see how the singers interact and communicate with the crowd. For me, this separates the real deals from the pretenders.
The first group of ten females will perform Wedensday night, followed by the first group of ten males on Thursday evening.
Then we get to repeat the same thing next week, after which we will finally have our Top 20 unless there are any twists and turns in the interim.
Performing this week (courtesy of MJsBigBlog) are:
Girls: Air Wednesday February 20th
Jenny Beth Willis
Guys: Air Thursday 21st
Josh Davila (JDA)
Our Top 20 will evolve from these singers and they will indeed perform live in a couple of weeks, giving the viewers a chance to vote through their Top 10.
Now, I hope to live blog these shows, but, once again, I may not be home in time for the early part of both shows. I will do my best.
But, hey, that doesn’t mean you can’t get started over in the comments section, does it? Of course not! Live blog away and then I will play catch-up with you when I connect with the TV.
9:20 P.M. A little late to the party here but I have to say Angela and Isabelle knocked my socks off!
9:26 P.M. Cursing at the TV at Randy’s “old- fashioned” remarks re Isabelle’s choice of God Bless The Child. All good music should be represented on this show and this song is a classic. A classic!! And Isabelle sang the bleeping whatever out of it.
9:32 P.M. Amber Holcomb sings My Funny Valentine and I love her interpretation but her vocal is a bit tight. Strong, however. Standing O! Gee, Randy, last time I looked, this is an old song too but I guess you like some old songs, depending on who your favourites are.(wink! wink!)
9:37 P.M. The judges will deliberate during the commercial break and decide which five girls will move on to the Top 20. I am sure Bree, Angela, Isabel and Angela will move on. Didn’t see the earlier portion of the show to make a conclusive decision on the 5th singer. Maybe Adriana
9:41 P.M. All the judges were unanimous in this decision.
9:42 P.M. Jenny Beth Willis is eliminated. Brandy Hotard is eliminated. Tina Torres is moving on to the Top 20. Kree Harrison is moving on to the Top 20. Isabel Pasqualone is SADLY AND UNJUSTLY ELIMINATED. Angela Miller is moving forward to the Top 20.
9:50 P.M. Kamaira Ousley is eliminated. Amber Holcomb is moving on to the Top 20. Adriana Lotonio moves on to the Top 20. Shubha Vedula is eliminated.
