The header for this topic is a bit misleading in that, before we hear the Top 10 perform for your votes, the voting results for the 10 Wildcard singers will be announced at the beginning of the show. Four singers – Olivia Rox, Dalton Rapattoni, Trent Harmon and La’Porsha Renae – were pre-selected by the judges, which leaves 6 spaces remaining in the Top 10.
Mackenzie Bourg seems to be a fan favorite and, in truth, I like him as well. However, on Wednesday evening, there were some other very good performances crossing my TV screen, including Tristan McIntosh who has been unfairly labeled as the singer with pitch problems. Whatever everyone out there is hearing is definitely not what I am hearing. Her voice is nuanced and resonant and she employs the head voice element in a flawless manner. So, I am walking the Tristan journey alone I guess!
I will be adding a Vocal MasterClass article for the Top 10 but the immediacy of its publication won’t happen for a couple of days. I am having a very busy two days here – however, I will do my very best to publish it under the two day timeline.
In the meantime, you are all welcome to join in with your insights and evaluations in the comments section.
And don’t forget, our first American Idol, Kelly Clarkson, will perform and act as guest judge on Thursday, February 25th show beginning at 8:00 PM. On Fox. Must see TV!
Enjoy the show everyone.
