The 67th Miss USA was on FOX on May 21, 2018. It was hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey (Miss Teen USA 1998). If you have missed it, it was against Dancing With The Stars and American Idol on ABC. If you were jumping back and forth or using picture-in-picture on your TV to watch both shows at once, then you are okay. The pageant was at Louisiana’s Hirsch Memorial Coliseum.

The winner was Sarah Rose Summers, Miss Nebraska. She’s a graduate of Texas Christian University with two degrees in Child development and Strategic Communication with Business. She interns at the Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Centre and works on the promotions team of the Dallas Cowboys.

American Idol is on TV

American Idol top ten 2a

If you haven’t heard American Idol is back, and the votes did not pull through, if you were watching The Voice, on NBC, then you missed the drama on American Idol. Or some other show, they will repeat it, or you could DVR or tape it on your VCR and watch it later.

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. It’s like people don’t care, they think it’s fixed and rigged. It’s not fixed or rigged if people voted someone will win. One time would not help. You can vote many times as you like. They don’t have the phone numbers anymore, everything is online and voting apps too, just go to AmericanIdol.com and download the voting apps.

Sometime people will think that they will win. If they think they will win; can we have thinking power to vote? You have to vote. If you don’t know how to vote, the simply solution is go to AmericanIdol.com and register to vote; and vote for favorite, this is different than the presidential election. You catch the recaps on YouTube or AmericanIdol.com website. Then watch the LIVE show on ABC on Sunday nights. You can DVR your favorite shows you like and watch it later, that’s how DVR works.

Here are your top ten:

Ada Vox

Catie Turner

Cade Foehner

Dennis Lorenzo

She really wants to be discovered. She is very talented. She wants to be a megastar. She sang with Rachel Platten strip down version of “Fight Song,” it was phenomenon, her voice is stunning.

Garret Jacobs and Cobie Calliat sang Lucky to the crowd. He was missing his girlfriend, and he was lucky, she was in the audience – that was a surprise.

When you have too much of excitement, you will bound to rip something, that’s what to Katy Perry – she ripped her pants, the best way to cover it up – used duct tape!

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.

layal Spring.p

“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.

Watch American Idol on Sunday and Monday nights on ABC!

 

Darci Lynn Wins America’s Got Talent

darci 5 - 2

Darci Lynn wins America’s Got Talent Season 12! Congratulations!

It has been an emotional ride for her, and she did it with her good friends, Rocky, Petunia, and Edna her puppet friends. So what’s she going to do with her millions of dollars – pay bills? What bills does she have? She’s a teenager. Probably the parents will handle the financial and she’s going to perform in Las Vegas in November, but before she does that, she has to go back to school and brag to her friends that she won America’s Got Talent. She will be busy for the next weeks to come. You know homework, school, and friends. She had a tutor on the set, which is good.

Did you know 52 million people voted for their favorite performer?  This is good for America’s Got Talent, can’t wait to see next year.

Light Balance and Divalo were absolutely fantastic; I hope they perform soon in Las Vegas. Derek Hough was dancing with Light Balance, that was a surprise.

Kelly and Simon

Kechi, Angelica Hale sang with Kelly Clarkson “Stronger” incredible voices, first American Idol winner in 2002, and she sang a new song “Love so Soft” it’s a hit song.  Kelly Clarkson also reunites with Simon Cowell; he’s a producer for AGT.  Oh, by the way, be sure to watch the NEW American Idol coming in 2018 on ABC.

mandy and Twain 1

Marlee Matlin introduces Mandy Harvey. Mandy Harvey was an incredible singer, and she sang with Shania Twain, and she performed her new song called “Life’s About To Get Good.”

Evie and James

Evie Clair performs an original song, and she was joined by Chase Goehring and James Arthur. James and Evie Clair sang “Okay day,” and James hit song “Say You Won’t Let Go.”

Sara Carson Attempts To Train The Judges’ Dogs – America’s Got Talent 2017

 

Sara Carson trains the judge’s dogs and immediately put Howie Mandel in time out because of his bulldog. It’s quite hilarious.  I hope Sara and her dogs get to work in TV and films.

American Got Talent: LIVE SHOWS!!

The Live show of America’s Got Talent, and the contestants were ready. The judges are ready. Are you ready to vote?

Darci and Oscar

Darci Lynne, the ventriloquist, and Mel B Golden Buzzer winner. She returns to the live shows, and she was absolutely adorable, and her performance was spot on. Did she grow a couple of inches? Oscar, the socially awkward mouse, sang “Who’s Loving You,” I could not even see her lips move. I am glad she had extra training singing with your mouth close. She was fantastic! Vote, vote, vote if you want Darci to go to the finals.

Howie’s Golden Buzzer recipient, Christian Guardino, 16. The soulful singer from Patchogue, NY bellowed “Make It Rain” by Ed Sheeran.  He was good and a great singer.

Artyon and Paige, the adorable besties, performed an ode to Footloose, with an energetic dance number. It was fantastic to watch these two dancers.  Lots of energy.

Then the patriotic singers of In the Stair Well did an a cappella song called “Some Nights” by Fun. They were good, and they showed off the vocal ranges. They were fantastic. I hope they stay.  Did you vote? Vote for them.

Singing Trump

The Singing Trump is back for another performance on America’s Got Talent, and he performed a medley of two songs during the quarter-finals! The Trump impersonator sang “Shut Up, and Dance” by Walk the Moon and “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer for his performance. Then he tore his pants off and revealed the American flag pants. He later joked that his pants were designed by First Daughter Ivanka Trump. He then mentioned that American could make AGT great again and bring our country together. The singing trump had more sense.

“As you said this week, there are good and bad things on both sides, right?” Howie said.  Plus, he has entertained us.

Cute as a Golden Buzzer was Angelica Hale, 9 and the youngest performer.  She sang “Clarity” he vocal range was incredible, and her voice was strong. Will she make to the next round? Will see.

bello N

Do you remember Bello Nock, who was sent home from the Judge Cuts? He came back, and he was the judges Wild Card.  The judges thought what can bring. Bello Nock ran out of idea and chose “The Wheel of Death” that was terrifying to watch. First, he was inside the wheel and then outside of the wheel, that was scary that my cat fainted.  And I don’t have a cat. Did you vote for him?

Just Jerk, the Korean Dance Crew. Look what Korean import to us – Their dancing was awesome, if we voted them for the next round, they should not bomb other countries. Their movement was spectacular. Wow. I hope people voted for them. Vote for them.

Haley-Reinhart1 + puddles

One of my favorites was Puddles Pity Party, the clown if he’s in the bottom three and Haley Reinhart (right) she was one of the finalists on American Idol, she sang with him a couple of years ago.  Vote for him again. He needs to stay in the competition or the bottom two. Tough choices for the judges. I hope they would not make us wait for the last second – that’s nerve wracking. He has a fantastic voice, and he should sing the classic that’s what he’s good for. Sing the classic puddles. Pick up those phones and vote for Puddles

Preacher Lawson was hysterically funny, and he brightens up the room, and of course, Mel B did look like Mystique from the X-men. Maybe the auditorium was cold. Maybe she cuddles with Simon to stay warm? He’s my favorite. He had great stage presence, and his jokes or story was funny. I hope he stays and I hope people voted for him.

NUP_178279_1679.JPG

Rollerblading siblings, Emily and Billy England performed their challenging, synchronized routine to Imagine Dragon‘s “Believer.” These two were incredible to watch. Did I see something sharp while there spinning around in the circle?  That was incredible. Weeks ago, she held his beard; this time was dangerous lifts, spins, and scary spins. I feel like Annabelle the doll from Annabelle: the creation just had her head pop out! I hope people would vote for them. If they don’t make it, they should go to Vegas anyway; they did perform for Britain’s Got Talents a couple of years ago.

Be sure to watch America’s Got Talent Tuesday and Wednesday 8 pm on NBC! Watch it live with your family.  You are missing the greatest show on NBC. And take a break from doing Homework!
