by Rosanne Simunovic I am a little late posting the Vocal Masterclass article this week, so I will dispense with the pre-Vocal Masterclass yada yada!

Vocal Masterclass For Canadian Idol Season Five Top Seven Singers: The Music Of Queen


by Rosanne Simunovic The music of the legendary rock group, Queen, was showcased this week and I wondered how well our young singers would fare with this very difficult, extremely intense and distinctly theatrical music.

Let the pyrotechnics begin. I am sure there will be a ton of glitz and glamour during tonight’s show. Given the theatrically driven music that encompasses Queen’s unique and passionate vocal style, no expense will be spared by CTV and the Canadian Idol franchise. I hope and pray these singers have done their homework, because […]

It’s going to be an exciting summer of music and, with all the famous rock artists traversing the Idol stage, I, personally, will miss eliminated rocker contestant Tyler Mullendore’s contribution to the mix.

This song mesmerized me . It was a spectacular performance and […]
