New Discovery: Marissa Lynn

My best friend finally got her music myspace up! Check her out:

New Discovery: Meiko

Thanks to anonymous commenter for pointing this one out to me. I think I might have heard her song Boys with Girlfriends on Music Choice too. She kinda sounds a little like flyleaf with a hint of katy perry.

Ana Free - Mama Do by Pixie Lot

Hmm this song is pretty popular around youtube. Wonder who's gonna cover it next.

Ally Heman - Come Home by One Republic

Maxie - Pokerface by Lady Gaga

I love all these acoustic covers of Pokerface. Whoever came up with it first is a genius. Chris Daughtry's cover will still be my all time favorite of it (out of the ones that I've seen), but Maxie still did a good job.

Alyssa Bernal - Just in Time (original)

Chantelle Readman - Mama Do by Pixie Lot

Free Tunes Tuesday - Melody by Kate Earl

Really intriguing sound, and she's from Alaska. It seems that a lot of new artists from places you might not expect (unless of course you live there) tend to have a really unique sound that draws you in.

Download it free on iTunes until August 24, 2009

Online Idol Finale UPDATE

Voting starts August 21 at midnight and lasts until August 22 at 3pm
Paige Cook
I'm not sure the judges picked the right song for her, but she did change it up a bit and the vocals/pitch are right on point

Nice vibrato in this one. Love the lyrics too, really sweet and well written

New Discovery: Gloria Lee

If the name sounds familiar, that's because it's Vicki Lee's sister. And just like Vicki, she's really good. So thanks go to Vicki for pointing this out in her latest video which I've posted a few posts down. Check out this slow piano take Gloria did on Use Somebody by Kings of Leon.

Online Idol Finale

No one's posted videos yet but just thought I'd give you guys a head's up on who's left and what's taking place. Unfortunately, only one of my favorites made it through, Paige Cook. The others that made it are Mollie Evans and Trevor Hoen. They're all doing 2 songs; one is judges choice and the other will be an original song. So this should be interesting. Having to do an original will show us what they're capable of lyrically in addition to vocally.

Kendra Wolcott - Hero of War by Rise Against

Vicki Lee - Falling For You by Colbie Caillat

Not a big fan of the song but she sings it pretty well regardless.

Online Idol Finals UPDATE

It's down to the top 5 now and 3 of them have a video up already. All my favorites got through except for Stephanie Empson, unfortunately. I wanted to see her get through. Voting works the same way, and you can vote from August 8th at midnight (Saturday) to August 9th at 5pm.

Even though it was hard to judge because the band drowned her out a bit, from what I could hear, this is the genre for her. The song fits her really well. Wasn't expecting the music video-esque aspect of it either lol.

Mollie's entry started out okay but I'm still not a fan of the screamy parts. I think she'll be better just singing softly and not belting it out.
