American Idol 2019: Top 10

Riley Thompson

If you have been watching or a fan of the show, American Idol just announced their top 10 out of 14 that the judges on American Idol selected them.

The judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel  Richie selected the contestants themselves for the past months, and they were satisfied by their choice. Ryan Seacrest did not choose; this is not America’s Got Talent.

Now it came down to the American Idol fans to choose who will be the top 10. Some of them were right, and some of them were wrong, but it was America choice. You have to pick.

As you may know, these judges are well respected in the music industry, and they know how to pick, but since it was America choice they have to choose who will likely to win American Idol 2019.   

All of the contestants were fantastic the night before especially there performance. Some of them connected with the audience and some did not. The music industry is a tough crowd to join, you may have a fantastic voice, but will the radio audience will like it? It’s all ways the voice of the singer that will move the audience to buy your CD or other formats.  

The top ten were:

Madison Van Denburg

Jeremiah Lloyd  Harman

Laci Kaye Booth

Alejandro Aranda

Lionel Hardy

Wade Cota

Walker Buroughs

Uche

Alyssa Ragu

Dimitrius Grahman

When Uche didn’t make it in the top ten, I don’t know what America was thinking. Lionel Richie picked him as one of his save this week, Uche is an entertainer, he entertains and performs his song. He knows how to attract the crowd. He connected with his audience and they dance to the song.  If you want him to perform at your wedding, he used to be a wedding singer and now he is on American Idol. Please vote him through. Don’t go by his looks, go by his performance and he is an entertainer. He can move a crowd.

Luke Bryan saved Dimitrius Graham, and this guy can harmonize and sing with other top celebrities. His voice is incredible. I am glad Luke saved him; he needs to be in the competition. His voice and his performance are fantastic.  I don’t care what people say about him. He can sing and perform. Go by his performance and vote for him next week. He should not go home. Forget about the Games of Thrones on HBO. He can control dragons with his voice.

Katy Perry save Alyssa Ragu she has a fantastic voice, and she sang a Katy Perry song “The One that Got Away.” It was better than Katy Perry. If people don’t vote for her, she will go home next week. So please vote Alyssa Ragu to be your American Idol. And don’t even think about Ragu Spaghetti sauce.  I bet the sauce wanted to vote for her too.

All the rest of the singers are great performers and entertainers they sang fantastic. Don’t let them go home. We have to vote for them. Get the app on the Apple Store app and Google Play store app. Remember you have to vote, if you don’t vote, you assume that they will be saved apparently, this is not a presidential race. This is American Idol. Save the contestant that you like the best.  

The contestants that went home are

Riley Thompson

Evelyn Cormier

Eddie Island

Ashley Hess

They did their best, and not everyone voted who they like. It’s a popularity contest, but they are fantastic performers and entertainers.

Vote for them, don’t assume they will be saved.

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.
