I must procure myself one of them there voice manipulators before the next contest and master the adjustments for perfect tone and perfect pitch. LOL It might get me passed round 1 or 2 but cannot help me with video rounds, where I would have to do my little running man dance in my 12 square foot cubicle. Still, would be a BLAST!!!!

UNBELIEVABLE! I don't get angry often, and often try to use humor to be a peacemaker, but I just can't believe what these mentors and particularly Novella in this case, is dealing with. I didn't have the time to enter this contest, but I'm glad I didn't. Pettiness.

People you aren't competing on American Idol or being awarded a record contract for winning, for crying out loud! This is supposed to be fun. True the awards are very generous...and that's my point. This is a business. Trevor and his staff don't have to do these challenges or contests. They could just do their daily work duties and take our membership dues, but they try to make this site so much fun. Support is also amazing at how fast they answer problems and get things corrected that aren't running smoothly on the site.

I guess all of that I said doesn't have to do with the complaints being lodged about the way the contest is scored, but I just feel sad that there always seems to be some who can never be satisfied no matter how things are done and how hard the staff works to correct things to make them fair.

Feel free to delete this if it cause problems in the thread. I mean no disrespect. I just needed to say something. Congrats to the finalists and again.....SS staff rocks!!!

I wanna know how to make those fab vids!!...LOL!!......Someone make a thread with instructions.......otherwise I will be lost in cyberspace forever trying to work it out...haha...

I have to say....that each and every entry I listened to....was just as fabulous as the next....didn't matter to me what was clever editing and what wasn't.......for me it was all down to the passion and emotion that oozed out of every entry....it must have been very very hard for the mentors to choose....I know I would have really struggled with it and I have judged these site run contests before........so I know how hard it is....Bravo to the fab 4 mentors....a job very well done in my eyes.......

I still wanna know how to make those vids....

Oh..........and I REALLY would not like to be Trevor right now..........LOL!......

Reply by DeveneyGOLD

OK PEOPLE!

Let's just cheer Jag along, and get on with it, no amount of bitching, moaning, or complaining is gonna change the outcome, I am slightly surprised..... I really thought most people would "rise above" all this.

So with THAT being said, Just RAISE YOUR GLASS!

I would like to THANK every mentor, support personnel, and staff for doing such a WONDERFUL job, These people have such a THANKLESS job, and it's a job that most VOLUNTEER for, they DESERVE your respect!
My momma always said..... "Don't criticize someone else's job unless your willing to do the job yourself."

CONGRATS Jag for a job WELL DONE!

Ok I just got to this page and wow LoL what a ride! I goin to say this

JennieSweden -Liz- Kelvis LeeRogers JaguarJ

Take a look at them names up there. They up there for a reason. Cause they have that factor. To be honest out of the 5 singers above when this contest 1st started I predict 4 out of the 5 above to be in the finals cause they have show me in other contests that I have been in with them that they have the talent and they have that factor about them. They know how to bring it.

Everyone of them names up there deserve to be in the finals heck many of them deserve recording contracts..

I will say this now.. I am lookin at the 5 names above and I say wow again I have been in contests on this site with 4 of them up there. I will tell you now this is going to be 1 heck of a finals and I say to myself to predict a winner but I can not.. Right now I can not loll it is for real hard to even guess who will be the winner but I do know everyone of them 5 names above is goin to bring the best they ever did on this site. So take a breath everyone and enjoy the Finals

To the finalists be proud and do not listen to haters. If anything that should make you bring it more . Bring all you can to this round more than any contest you ever did. I lookin foward to hearin the entry. Good luck to you 5 and no matter what everyone of you is winners and the best singers on singsnap.

Well I actually READ the audition. In the unlikely even that I made it through the acapella round I would have needed some video skills to compete at top level in the latter rounds (which I don't have) or be prepared to take a pretty fast crash course (which I am too lazy to do lol) Kudos to those of you who made the Top 24 and gave it your best shot. Your talent has already been recognized but making it past 700 other hopefuls well that is an achievement in itself and you can be proud of that! Most of us here on this site are in awe of you all for doing just that much.
As for the finalists, YOU are already winners and can continue to please your fans for another year with a generous reward provided by this site and WE are winners because we get to hear you again:) All your efforts will be appreciated by the majority so don't listen to the vocal minority and give it your best. WE LOVE WHAT YOU DO!!

Congratulations to the team! This has been great to follow and lots of work on your part. Very much appreciated

I said earlier in the round that i am not a cam fan, whilst i love to see others perform on cam i kinda dont like it looking at me! lol I have almost 1000 recordings and only three of them are on cam and thats only cos JCD FORCED me into it! lol

I switched to a mac computer a couple of months ago and Friday was the first time i opened the imovie software. I am Happy to help anybody thats interested in telling them how I did my vid. Yeah I sat up until 4 in the morning playing with the editing but the software is outstanding. Its not me being clever it's down to how good a Mac is!!

I do think Roger owes me at least some of his winnings, whether it be a month or two of his prize of one year of SingSnap or at least a commission of 5 years should he win the lifetime membership for my GENTLE encouragement in getting him on cam (the use of several very long whips that reach from Canada to the U.K.!) and talking him into getting a Mac (with my fingers crossed hoping he'd like it and not toss it out the window, across the ocean and through my kitchen window!).

What a wonderful contest this has been so far and the best is yet to come! Can't wait to hear our AMAZING 5 finalists! I've robbed my prop bin and have my cheerleader shakers all ready to go!

Thank you Novella, our super-duper mentors and all volunteers who made this happen. I wish Trevor the best in trying to choose a winner from the group of finalists. I am glad I am not you!
