American Idol is different, they selected the top ten with the TV audience and people who did not vote, didn’t know it was on. It was on.

American Idol: Life Learn and Life Lesson

LIONEL RICHIE, KATY PERRY, RYAN SEACREST, LUKE BRYAN

Did you watch America Idol? It is on ABC not FOX anymore. They have all new judges R&B legend Lionel Richie, pop diva Katy Perry, country singer Luke Bryan and returning host Ryan Seacrest. All of these judges are from the music business, and they know what they look for a pop singer – not for an opera singer. If you are an opera singer, they could have sung a Mariah Carey song.

 

“Truthfully, we are in the music business this Country, Pop and R&B standing here in front of you and I am telling you that voice is not going to work for records. We are looking for an Idol for popular music that is unique music” Lionel said to Koby, who sang opera and in the musical theater actress.

“I think you know you are quirky, crazy and you get caught up and come down to this route you are doing yourself a disservice,” Luke Bryan said.

In other words, it’s all about your niche, if you sing opera you don’t sing opera to executives who are in country music, pop music, and R&B music. Broadway is your choice. If you want to get exposure, then exposure you got and the humiliation in front of the judges and millions of people who are watching you. Maybe someone will see her and end up on Broadway. Know your niche and your genre of song. Sing a song that voice can sing. Don’t embarrass yourself.  And don’t beg to go to Hollywood and don’t have an attitude, be professional they will see right through you. Let the judges decide.

Katy Perry is right, the truth hurts, Simon Cowell was right the whole time when looking for talent. You got to have something to impress the judges. It is not an easy task. You see thousands of bad singers and good ones on YouTube. Some got rejected, and some succeed. It’s hard work. Life learned and Life Lesson.

“You are 16 years old, you have to understand something this is not a business of being cute, and you love to sing. It’s a mental game, ok? If I follow Katy path I don’t want to give that opportunity, and you get here, and it will destroy you. I want you to understand that you are going into the fire!” Lionel Richie said to Layla Spring who is 16 years old and has a beautiful voice. She got the wise words from Lionel Richie, but it’s up to her. It’s drama and pressure of being a teen singer in Hollywood and lots of Hard work and not an easy task.

harper grace 1a

Harper Grace from being the worst singer when she sang the national anthem at the age of 11 to WOW a beautiful control voice and a gorgeous, quirky, and a country girl.  She got a Golden ticket to Hollywood.  People can sing better when they are humiliated and learn to be a better singer.

Glad it wasn’t opera.

Trent Howard wins American Idol

Would you believe this is the last year of American Idol? It’s been on the air since the summer of 2002 for a trail run, and then it got picked for very winter spring seasons for the following year.

So now, the judges will either go on their separate ways or work together.

So no more of American Idol lights off, what’s left is Voice and America’s Got Talent on NBC.

And now for the final curtain for American Idol season 15 and the winner for the 2016 is

Trent-Harmon

 

Trent and LaPorsha

Congratulations to Trent Howard and La’Porsha Renae, they are both winners of American Idol. They both get a record contract and if they sell, then it is good all the contestants are winners in American Idol.

American Idol: the Farewell Season

Sonika Vaid was eliminated on the show on March 24, 2016.
Sonika Vaid was eliminated on the show on March 24, 2016.

If you have been watching American Idol: The Farewell Season, you may know it is still on and some of your favorites already gone. Why? Have you been watching it or voting your favorites to stay.

Basketball is good and rooting for your favorite team. But what about American Idol? Root for them and vote for them. The presidential debates are boring because they are repeating the same questions of what they would do as presidential and how would they fix the situation.

Soon American Idol will be gone forever. No more talented people will be discovered, they have to do it the hard way: audition and get rejected, that’s no good. American Idol has discovered many talented singers. Some of them got Grammies and working as actors on television shows such as Scorpion and Good Luck Charlie (2010 – 2014) and other prominent shows.

Simon Cowell was a great judge and that’s why we loved to watch him, his blunt positive criticism on contestants to become better singer. And he was funny with his remarks. Does that sound like Donald Trump? He’s a handful, let’s nominated Simon Cowell for President.

Simon Cowell retired from American Idol in 2010 and ever since, it is struggling to stay in the top 20. We need some shows that show case talented people and make their dream come true.

Simon-Cowell-AGT

Simon Cowell has another gig this summer; he will co-judge America’s Got Talent this summer of 2016, which will be interesting to watch.

Last shows for American Idol for 2016 are March 31, April 6 and 7 8pm on FOX network, watch it LIVE or DVR it.

American Idol – The Last Season

What do Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery, Phillip Phillips, Candice Glover, Caleb Johnson, and Nick Fradiani have in common? They all won American Idol when it first premier in the summer of 2002. And, even since we were hooked to see our hometown friend to become major celebrities. And, we did not know that your friend could sing!

This is the last season of American Idol. Why? Probably the fans had enough to see good talent. These teenagers or teen adults they have great talent and they can sing, and they want to showcased their talents and get recognized by someone who can help them to be successfully. Without American Idol, and X-factor people will be working normal jobs and get minimum wage and be working on a farm for the rest of their lives and not being recognize for their singing talents. They have worked so hard to study their craft and this is their last chance for stardom and helped their family out from financially situation. It’s a long road to be successfully. We have to try and try again. So if your son or daughter have talent in singing, their local school can help them. Or have them take singing lesson and participate in their local community theater. Your children should have a musical theater background in order to become a singer, actor, and dancing.

Here are some highlights from American Idol.

Joseph Kchlruss

Joseph Kohlruss sang opera. It was interesting, but the judges wanted to hear if he could sing a pop song. Being a classic trained opera is not that popular he should have tried America’s Got Talent. Remember Jackie Evancho? Tried American Got Talent.

Sonika Vaid 3

Sonika Vaid she sang beautiful and she looked amazing. The judges said that she could win American Idol. If she works hard and compete with other contestants then she could make it. It would be nice to see an American Asian to win American Idol and it would be a first. If she makes it for the live shows please vote her.

Josiah Siska 2

Josiah Siska sang a Johnny Cash song and he can hit the low deep voice better than Joseph Kohlruss. He did scale with his voice and it was incredible to listen. He will definitely make it to the live show and survive Hollywood drama week soon.

Jeneve R Mitchell

Jeneve Rose Mitchell, 15, lives in remote mountain in Crawford, Colorado in the quite corner of Elk Wilderness. The place she lives at has no electricity or water but a working generator where she gets a chance to see American Idol, local shows and the news.

She is homeschool and she had a cello strapped across her chest. She sang an unplugged cover of The Band Perry hit “Chainsaw”

Jenny’s mother is a heath care provider and operates a local family clinic. Her father serves as vocal coach and a carpenter.

The judges loved her voice and her character. If she is in top ten in American Idol, they should give her more generators for she could watch American Idol.

What do Hillary Scott, Cobie Caillet, Mary Lambert, Amber Riley, Naya Rievera, Tori Kelly, and Alex & Sierra have in common? They have all audition for American Idol but rejected and look how they become successfully in the music and entertainment business.

The other way, is never crashed live event like the People Choice Awards with a group of women. Tried YouTube! Or audition! At least he’s being recognize as the person who crashed the acceptance speech from The Talk.
