Tell a story with your song! Yes!

Rules - Groups of 8 – pass mic down line

Perform acapella – in or out.  

 

Lil Rounds  - I love her

“I will Always Love You”gutsy choice – you have a greatvoice

there is power there.  Just don't give it all up right away.  Learn to use levels with your songs. I'm sure you did but they only showed a few seconds.

 

Dennis Brigham

You have great stamina, but quite nervous – notgrounded.  Too much energy. Honeit.

They said his facial expressions were too extreme (that’swhat I was worried about)

Doesn’t look good for him.

Awe, Bye Dennis.

I wish I could have heard the others! Sheish

 

Dennis is back and he’s ticked off. You have a nicevoice.  Just get a better attitudesweetie.  OMG.  And try not to open your eyes so wide.

=)

TO HELP WITH NERVES –

OMG – do my 4x4x8 breathing!  Learn how to center yourselves!

 

Nethanial Marshall, 18

“the Anchor Holds”

Good energy!

Boring song, but he still made it work

Good answer about a kid with alot going on.

Don’t cry though... YOU DID GOOD NETHANIAL!

 

Anooop Desai

I love this guy!  You rule buddy!

See how connected he is. That’s what I’m talking about when I say "CONNECT AUTHENTICALLY!"

 

Jasmine Murray

Gorgeous voice

Good tone and control. Watch the bouncy jaw – that will getyou in trouble. Relax it.

Wonderful vibe.

 

Rose Flack

Good kid.  Had ahard time during rehearsal with vocal coach Debra Byrd

Struggling to find her own voice. Awe. 

You can do it sweetie. Be strong!

OWN WHAT YOU GOT honey.  Believe in yourself – that’s what it boils down to. Lovelyenergy and spirit. I hope you make it!

OH, I’M SO GLAD THEY ALL MADE IT.

THEY WERE ALL FABULOUS!

 

Steven Fowler –gorgeous voice honey and good idea to smile like that.  Nice presence!

They love your Stevie Wonder song and you did well cuz youwere centered

 

*Jorge Nunez (even though I don't pick favorites, if I did, he would be mine)

I LOVE YOU! Shivers through my spine again. FEEL THIS YOUNG MAN’S POWERFUL ENERGY – it goes RIGHT FROMHIS HEART CENTER INTO THE LISTENERS


Von Smith

You have a great voice, but dang it honey – waaaay toodramatic and mouth is sooo wide again. Please close it more or you will not have a voice left!

Simon said “Indugent Nonsense”  Well, he’s getting a bit harsh.  I red-flagged your initial audition Von, because you openyour mouth too wide and you’re a bit over the top.  Take it down a notch and you will have somethingamazing.  You don’t need try thathard.

Did they just call Jorge “George?” LOL

 

Von made it through...

My advice to you Von is to just tone it down a notch.  Choose better songs too. Less dramatic. More uptempo.

 

Thank yo Debra Byrd. This is what I’ve been saying all along about choosing a suitable song.  Why don’t they listen? LOL!

 

YOU HAVE TO KNOW YOURSELF!  KNOW YOUR VOICE.

 

Never give up. Just use your 15 minutes of fame as best as you can people.

 

Nick Mitchell – Norman Gentle.

This guy is interesting. What is he going to sing?

I liked Norman better. LOL.

Oh good! Hahaha! He is back! LOL!

I think they should keep this guy in just because he is sooff the wall and unique. But unfortunately, the audition week is overbuddy.  Come on now.

I would like him to become Nick Mitchell – he does have skills.  Give him one more shot.

They are all shocked that he got through! LOL! Did you seeAnoops’ mouth open so wide? Ahahaha!  They are smart tokeep him in the show. He is going to get a following because he is a TRIP...and I believe he has something – but he’s hiding from it.  Would be so cool to she himtransform.  He will probably becomecontroversial.

 

SCOTT MACINTYRE  (visually impaired great dude) wish Icould have heard him sing.  He’slovely.

Frankie Jordon

HOW TO GET IN “THE ZONE” and overcome fear – get my COREPOWER CD.

That’s a good start. I’m also creating specific materialfor this.

 

Jackie Tohn, 28

You have the best hair ever

Raspy voice – be careful with the jaw and the drama. I likeyour style, but if you keep singing like that, you may get vocal burnout.

(I want your hair...OMG -  nice save “not bye-bye – hello. LOL)

Yes.

 

Deanna and Jackie – best friends. LOL.

 

So many great kids are going home.  Bummer.

Jamar – “CaliforniaDreamin’”

So much power – but may want to tone it down a bitsweetie.  I hope they love you.

I love Jamar.

 

Danny Gokey

Kissed by a Rose – Seal

You sound great – just learn to ground more.  And watch where you’re taking breathsin the song.  You guys are soooboth through my prediction.  ROCKON.

It was obvious they would both get through.

 

Bikini Girl fromchino hills.

Katrina Darrell

Hmmmm. Work it already. LOL. 

Breathe

They will pick her cuz she’s popular.

But, the song was boring.  Why that choice? You have a voice gal. I think she’s smart.

The men totally agree with her.  LOL. They will bring her though.

Why is it that the men’s vote overshadow the women’s withBikini girl?

OMG. THEY ALL GOT THROUGH!  Would have been nice to hear the others.
