I am adding this blog topic quickly so you can begin your speculation about tonight’s Results Show.

The Top 11 […]

By: Rosanne Simunovic I am finally back from vacation and that means the Vocal Masterclass articles will be up and running each and every week during the American Idol Season.

Delay In American Idol Top 11 Vocal Masterclass Article


Well, apparently, the Ipad 2 and the WordPress blogging format do not see eye to eye because all my evaluations of the Top 11 Vocal Masterclass article disappeared into thin air this morning.  Needless to say, I am frustrated beyond words, as some of the critiques were completed last evening. Memo to self: always use a Word or […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For The American Idol Seasion 10 Top 11 Results Show


Last night’s show was just okay for me. This is the problem as I see it – many of these Motown classics have been performed numerous times during past seasons on this show and I cannot listen to them anymore. We really need to hear and see new and exciting songs from all genres – […]

Adam Lambert – Aftermath : American Idol Season 10 Results Show Live Performance


I missed the entire show last evening, but had to include this as a blog topic. Adam looks and sounds fantastic, doesn`t he?  His words are crystal clear and he pours so much emotion into this song. I loved this performance so much.  But, easy on the screaming, Adam. It sounds very strained.  Keep that […]

American Idol Season 10 Finally Gets “It”.


The producers had to do something. After two lacklustre seasons, American Idol was on a spiraling roller-coaster ride towards oblivian. The last few seasons, with a few exceptions, were a complete bust and the chemistry between the rotating stream of judges seemed strained at the best of times. But this time, with the return of executive […]

Mini Vocal Masterclass For The American Idol Season 10 Top 12 Male Vocalists


Clint Jun Gambo: Superstition Clint – I found you were screaming a great deal throughout this number – definitely more scream than singing. Your voice is light and doesn’t have enough muscle for this song. Hence, your tendency to scream to hide vocal power and skill was problematic for me. However, you brought a lot […]
