Judges sorry but I might be late in sending you the clips (3-4 hours), I don't get out of class until 10 tonight, but I promise It'll be the first thing I do once I get home. (don't worry you shall still have the full 72 hours to judge).

Once again, sorry :(

Edit: Sent! :D

If someone does run a season 2, I'd like to judge for it rather than compete again. If they're full up on judges I might do it though.

It's supposed to be a secret >3>

Also, compared to all the auditions so far---I think I would've done pretty good if I contested.

Well, I'm going to give just my personal opinions on the final submissions.

Larto: The first verse was off-beat for quite some time. After that the timing was perfect, but what happened here? Every time you sang a relatively high note, your voice just kind of dropped off, like it was dying out. It contradicts the emotion that the song was trying to convey at that point, aside from just sounding weird. There were a lot of incorrect individual notes, but they were very slightly so to the point that they don't really detract from the song. The major problems are the complete lack of power behind your high notes and the very weak opening. Unfortunately the high points happened throughout the song and made it appear weak overall.

Sweagen: You chose a song which goes well with your lack of editing timing(relatively). I think that if you properly edited the vocal track, this would sound a lot better. It has nothing against your singing ability, but rather that you didn't properly edit the vocal track to match the background. I do notice that you include a secondary vocal track, which helps accentuate the point at which you use it. It's not very effective though, given the fact that the entire track is slightly off-beat, just enough so that it's irritating. Your secondary voices also have a habit of sounding ridiculous. Very, very ridiculous. The original track didn't make them sound ridiculous, it sounded very believable instead. On the other hand, you have no idea how jealous I am of your full-voice range. I'm a Bass II, and my maximum full-voice range caps out at about G above middle C, which is pretty horrible for singing popular songs. Your pitch is phenomenal though. I think that if the secondary voices sounded more like the original, and if they were on-time, this would be an A+-class recording.

For criticism of myself: The vibrato, I can't control it well enough. Aside from the obvious issues with my $12 microphone (which I believe, is supposed to be irrelevant to judging), the issues boil down to my vibrato, and the fact that I overuse a crescendo throughout a phrase several times. I believe my pitch and timing are both spot-on. A gradual overall crescendo throughout the song emphasizes how the emotions of the singer grow with each verse. Unfortunately the microphone doesn't convey this very well. I also didn't put enough emotion into the first two verses. That would have tremendously improved how the song sounded. The hetfield-like endings to phrases worked out very well though.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I think that sweagen's round 3 submission was, vocally, the best thus far. If it was on-time with the song, that is. I wish I had that range. I do journey at karaoke sometimes, but I do it an octave down.

Omg that was an excellent post! And thanks for all the good feedback (and the bad) :P I also think it's really coincidental and awesome that the song you did for the final was the one my friend wanted me to do and recommended me, but I ended up sticking with Bohemian Rhapsody (since that and 'Piano Man' were the only other 2 songs I was ready to do) even though I unfortunately couldn't hit the highest of Freddy's notes while singing in my tenor voice so I had to drop it down quite a bit, which might have made the beginning kinda boring... xP and you sounded reallly good. Also, sorry to everyone about the timing issues I always seem to have in songs though I think I had the least timing issues in this recording than any of my others. :D And also yesss for ridiculous voices... and sorry if they were a bit too ridiculous. :?

Overall, I think you have the best recording though and I think it's likely you will win this idol... :D

KoromoAmae
Special thanks to Haneii for organizing this. The whole thing went really smoothly, especially considering we hadn't even decided on a scoring system until it was time for the first round.
