Well, we are off and running! This season, American Idol is shaping up to be a very good season. Some very promising talent was revealed last week and the chemistry and rapport between the judges worked extremely well.
As a musician, I love all the musical terminology spilling out of Harry Connick’s mouth; it is darn refreshing to the ears!! However, he has to be careful not to throw it in everyone’s face every week. A little of this will go a long way. He has to temper this very carefully. No one enjoys a musical snob.
However, he is going to bring heightened credibility to this show and Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez are strong matches for him. They are believable and this is important.
The show has to be clothed in honesty and transparency or else the viewers will grab the remote. This has always been a trademark of American Idol – generally speaking – so I am praying that the pimping and head games are not part of the process this season.
This week, the judges are off to Detroit on Wednesday, January 22nd and Atlanta on Thursday, January 23rd at 8:00 PM on Fox.
One singer, the very talented Anna Kaelin, just posted a video of the song she sang for the judges at the Detroit audition. She is the daughter of renowned voice instructor and coach, Dean Kaelin, who also coached American Idol Season 7 Runner-Up, David Archuleta.
I believe this is her third time auditioning for the show and, after you hear this video, I think you will all agree that she has more than paid her dues. Such a beautiful singer and gorgeous charisma!
Comment away. And, if you have spoilers, please send them my way. Thank you!
