Pinch me! After Round 2 in the Top 10 (I sang “Lazy Afternoon/Lazy” from The Golden Apple/Irving Berlin and “The Joint is Really Jumpin’ in Carnegie Hall” from Thousands Cheer, with Bill Zeffiro at the piano), I have been chosen to be in the Top Seven in the 2012 MetroStar Talent Challenge.
The next evening, which will also include audience participatory votes, will be August 13th at 7pm. The full list of singers (in alphabetical order) is: Altovise, Elisabeth Cernadas, Lianne Marie Dobbs, Tommy Dose, Eva Kantor, Sierra Rein and Billie Roe. Our challenge is to bring in a three-song set, complete with patter, which includes one of two classic theater/standard songs picked by the judges (thus, there will be common songs across the contestants).
