The Reason Why American Idol Should Shun Big Name Stars To Serve As Judges.


Kevin Mazur/ WireImage This is why American Idol should hire non-celebrity judges.. According to RollingStone.Com, Steven Tyler had a lot to say about his two-year tenure as American Idol judge and it wasn’t pretty: “Tyler now admits that Aerosmith’s troubles (his often nasty public spat with the other band members starting in 2009) were the […]

Steven Tyler Waves Bye Bye To American Idol


Well, there you have it! Steven Tyler has waved goodbye to American Idol after serving as one of three judges over the past two seasons. I can’t say I am totally surprised and, actually, this was probably a mutual agreement on both sides. American Idol has been making the news as of late, indicating that […]

By: Rosanne Simunovic And then there were two! After four months of wonderful performances, amid the usual controversy and drama, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips have emerged as the Top 2 Finalists of American Idol Season 11.

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 2 Singers: Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips


I am adding this VM Discussion topic early for a couple of reasons. First of all, I wanted to remind everyone that American Idol Performance Finale is on Tuesday, May 22nd from 8:00 – 9:00 P.M., followed by the gala Finale Results show on Wednesday, May 23rd from 8:00 – 10:00 P.M. Why they changed […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 3 Results Show With Adam Lambert


Does anybody out there have any idea what is going on with this show this year? I thought for sure they wanted a female winner but after last evening’s performance show, it seems like a distant memory. It doesn’t take an expert to figure out that talented little Jessica Sanchez was railroaded this week when […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 3 Singers: Judges’, Jimmy Iovine and Personal Choices


Spoiler Below: Picture Of Song Picks Below Article. Source: MJsBigBlog.Com Ugh! Just ugh! I am so underwhelmed with this show right about now. So many great singers were eliminated much too early in the competition (Shannon and DeAndre) or else unfairly treated until they were eliminated (DeAndre and Hollie). This is not to undermine the […]

[Spoiler] Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 4 Singers: California Dreamin’ And Dream Songs


This week’s American Idol theme is so strange. California Dreamin? What does that mean? Is anyone actually going to sing the Mamma and Pappa’s song that goes by that name? Sounds like it would be a great group number – two guys, two girls = a current Mammas and Pappas group. However, according to Michael […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 5 Singers: British And Sixties Music


This blog topic is going live in haste and in waste. My week is ridiculously busy (the haste part) and I am sick with the flu to boot (the waste part). Needless to say, there will be no Top 5 Vocal Masterclass article. I am just too tired and too sick to stay focused. I […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 6 Results Show Part Two: The Music Of Queen And Personal Choice


It’s a big night tonight. I have no idea who is getting the old heave-ho, but there is going to be some mighty fine entertainment to take the edge off the anticipation. Scheduled to perform is American Idol Season 10 Finalist, Stefano Langone, along with the very talented Katy Perry. I love both artists and […]

[Updated:Spoiler]Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 6 Singers: The Music Of Queen And Personal Choice


Update: A picture of the song list can be seen at the bottom of this blog topic. The Queen numbers are very predictable and so are some of the personal choices, although for one of the latter numbers, you have to fill in the blanks! Ha! Well, put on those ear plugs. The scream fest […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 7 Results Show Part Two: Now And Then


Well, last night was quite the scream-fest, wasn’t it? Wow, are these singers messed-up or what? When did screaming become singing? I don’t blame the singers – they have been totally misguided in their quest to “connect” with their audience. One should be able to establish genuine rapport merely by sitting on a stool and […]

[Spoiler] Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 7 Performance Show Part Two: Now And Then


Update: The “now and then” song list is shown at the end of this blog topic. Any guesses as to who is singing what? Personally, I detest most of these songs. On Wednesday, April 18th, we will have another listen to the Top 7, thanks to the sensational and controversial use of the Judges’ Save […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 7 Results Show: Songs From This Decade


UPDATE Shocking result tonight as tweeted by both Ryan Seacrest and Nigel Lythgoe. Also from TMZ.Com. Being compared to Jennifer Hudson’s shocking elimination back in Season 3. And, what a coincidence, she happens to be on the show tonight. Oh Idol – you and your scripted results! Tonight is “The Save” night. Either tonight or […]

Spoiler: Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 7 Performance Show: Songs From This Decade


Well, no DeAndre for me tonight! I am still reeling over his elimination last week but, having watched him on all the talk shows, I know he will be just fine. I so loved Jay Leno’s words of encouragement and support for Dre’s exceptional talent. It bodes very well for his future success in the […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 8 Results Show: Songs From The Eighties


Well, this should be a nail-biter. Last night’s show was quite good and some of these singers really surprised me with the strength of their conviction and their stellar song selections. So, this elimination is going to be a very sad one all round. However, on a happier note, Kellie Pickler will be gracing the […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 8 Performance Show: Songs From The Eighties


Alrighty now everybody. I am back from vacation and, although missing the warm and relaxed ambience of my vacation environment, there is something to be said about being back in the comfort of your own home.

I can’t believe we are down to only nine singers already. It must mean that my March vacation is coming to an end. But, it also means that I will resume my regular Vocal Masterclass articles next week and I am anxious to get back at it. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 10 Performance Show: The Music Of Billy Joel


Well, wouldn’t you know it. A tribute showcase of Billy Joel’s songs is the theme for the Top 10 Showcase and I won’t be around to see it. I am still in vacation mode with family and friends so there is “no way Jose” that I will see the show on Wednesday evening. Which is […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 11 Results Show: Birth Year Songs


I will be missing this evening’s Results Show, so I am counting on the MCL public to add their comments and spoilers. With Jermaine Jones’ disqualification, the Top 12 quickly became 11 this week. I would like to add that I absolutely loved his pre-taped version of “Somewhere Out There”. I wish him the very […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 11 Top 12 Show: Birth Year Songs


So,it looks like Jermaine Jones is getting the ‘ole heave-ho. Whatever! As if American Idol didn’t realize his past when they introduced him to the American Idol viewers? As if? Boy, I detest this sort of drama – I really do. Is it too much to ask to just produce a valuable singing competition? Are […]
