On Thursday evening, 16-year-old Jazzlyn Little drew a standing ovation from three of the judges plus a hearty accolade from fourth judge Simon for her riveting performance of Mary J.

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For The Final 2 Auditions Of The X Factor


The final two audition episodes of The X Factor air Wednesday, September 28th and Thursday, September 29th on Fox at 8:00 PM Eastern. I thought last week’s two episodes were pretty promising, although the tasteless joke auditions were overkill and unnecessary. If this is to be a singing competition, is it too much to ask […]

Elton John Rumored To Replace Simon Cowell On Idol


Over at the MSN Homepage  on this fine, wintery morning, there was an article about a possible replacement for Simon Cowell: none other than singer-songwriter Sir Elton John. Now, granted, this is still a rumor, one that was cultivated by the notorious TMZ people, but also one that I hope escalates into reality. Elton John does […]

Goodness, gracious! What is going on with the ever popular Britain’s Got Talent this season? After watching 12-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi’s extraordinary performance of  “Who’s Loving You”  by Michael Jackson, the producers should rethink the name and call the show, Britain’s Got Superstars!

Britain’s Got Talent Superstar Susan Boyle Truly Is The Stuff Of Dreams


When Susan Boyle opened her mouth to sing “I Dreamed A Dream” from “Les Miserables” during her Britian’s Got Talent audition, no one expected this level of excellence nor this level of pure, unadulterated raw musical passion and fervor. It was quite a moment in time -in fact, for me, time stood still as I […]

Well “Hello” David Cook and Welcome To American Idol Season 7 Top 12.


I have to admit that David Cook was not on my artistic radar when American Idol Top 24 premiered three weeks ago. It was initially difficult to sort through these 24 singers and the only singer that seemed to be creating any “buzz” was 17-year-old vocal prodigy, David Archuleta. However, this week, David Cook cemented his […]

Luke Menard, You’re Not Making It Through, Not Even To The Top 12? Huh?


Simon Cowell is never at a loss for words nor does he stumble over his sentence structure. But, I was really dismayed over this statement he made to Top 8 male contestant, Luke Menard, after Luke’s -well -“lukewarm” performance last evening. First of all, I really like Luke, but I cannot for the life of […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread For The Top 2 Performances


Can it be? Have we really reached the TOP 2 already? Every year it seems that the weeks leading up to the American Idol Finale fly by faster and faster. Perhaps the rationale is that, even after all these weeks, I still could not figure out where this show was going this season. It didn’t […]
