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.

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 […]

Well who knew that the nail-biter of the season was going to start with these Top 25 Semi-Finalists? The judges did an excellent job choosing some magnificent talent this year.

Last night, the Top 12 male semi-finalists displayed some pretty amazing talent. It is going to be very interesting to see who makes the Top 5 cut. I won’t even wager a guess, because the voting public, in general, throw their votes based on popularity rather than actual singing potential. Spoilers inside. Additionally, I don’t […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread For American Idol Season 11: The Hollywood Rounds Part Two


Tonight, American Idol continues its dramatic presentation of the Hollywood Week audition process. And after watching the television promo and listening to Jennifer Lopez’ interview on Jay Leno, it looks like the singers are dropping like flies. Nerves, fatigue and ill health equal the end of the line for some of these contestants as they […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread For American Idol Season 11: The Hollywood Rounds Part One


Tonight, American Idol begins the singing marathon called Hollywood Week. And I am sure it will be filled with all the drama and suspense that I have come to dislike about this show. It is tedious and overblown. As I said last week, American Idol would have been wise to jump-start the live shows this […]

Tonight, American Idol enters the third and last week of preliminary auditions via the city of Portland, Oregon. Thursday’s Houston, Texas show was very good.

Tonight, American Idol continues its journey while highlighting the talent discovered at the Houston, Texas auditions. I thought last evening’s show in Aspen showed some very promising talent. There were a couple of guys with resounding baritone voices and, of course, Hippie Girl Haley was just tremendous. What a surprise! And she is different and […]

I have always wanted to travel to Aspen Colorado, so the closest thing I will encounter is catching a glimpse of it here and there during this evening’s American Idol Aspen auditions.

Well, apparently there is some important game on tonight, acting as a lead-in to a special showing of American Idol. As you can plainly see, I am not an avid sports fan – except when the Olympics air. Then I turn into a raving lunatic, acting like an avid and obsessive sports fan. It really […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread For American Idol Season 11: The Savannah Auditions


Tonight’s two-hour premiere of American Idol Season 11 will showcase the discovered talent in Savannah, Georgia. Two hours for one city seems a little extreme. Has it always been this way? Who can remember from year to year? Not me. So the two-hour showcase allotted to the Savannah singers must be indicative of the stellar […]
