Update: Here’s the voting link. OtherRobert #1s appreciated. It’s a preferential ballot system, so not voting is as bad as ranking someone in 4th place.
And here’s the full program. The performances start about 1:20 into the feed. I encourage you to listen before voting so this stays as fair as possible.
Can I tell you I never expected to make it this far in the MyndJack Radio Idol competition? The quality of contestant in season four of the parody reality singing contest has never been higher. The straight singers all have fully developed artistic identities and the parody singers have strong voices, as well. By chance and determination, I have muscled my way into the Top 4 and have to thank you all for your continued support.
Tonight’s episode, starting at 9PM EST on the All Digital Radio Network, is dedicated to the all stars of the first three seasons. Each remaining finalist had to choose one performance from a former contestant and outperform them. Why outperform? Because the show is going to air the original performance followed by this season’s new performance. That’s…terrifying.
I went with a parody of a parody because I had Inception on the brain. That song is “Bleeding Love,” nay, “Neighing Love,” originally performed by Leona Lewis and skewered to bits by Season 3 MJRI winner Jay Danger. I took the song in a very different direction, focusing on a completely new set of lyrics, strong singing (except for a break to mock the melisma at the end), and top notch production values (sound effects, echo, and all).
I’m rather proud of this. Maybe proud is the wrong word. It’s hard to be proud of a song on this topic. Let’s call it satisfied.
You can listen to the Top 4 all perform on the All Digital Radio Network. I actually recommend
using Shoutcast (bottom link) or iTunes (radio–>news/talk–>All Digital Radio) because the ADR player is a bit buggy at times. You can also join the live play by play chat here.
I’ll update afterwards with the voting link. Enjoy the show. It should be a good one.
