    so excited!

    Really looking forward to this year’s contest!
    looks like its gonna be amazing!

    A Small Tip...
    Guest
    A Small Tip...

    Okay. Why doesn’t Mendy Pellin and Benny Friedman switch places??? I think, Benny knows more about music and would be good on the judging panel; and Pellin, is better at public speaking and he would be great at MCing the soul to soul concert. And not to mention that he’s a pretty funny guy, it would spice up the concert!
    PS) Eli Gerstner will be a lot more interesting to watch than that other guy they had on last year (Michoel Streicher??)…

    Why?
    Guest
    Why?

    After last year they still take Mendy Pelin and A. Fried as judges … ?

    cool

    cool

    cant wait. smart of you to add the juniors….

    What is the reward, I think if you make it a bit better than last year it will increase the competition.

    Blesofsky ? NUUUUUU

    Blesofsky ? NUUUUUU

    when are the Blesofsky brothers coming out with an album??????

    hmm...
    Guest
    hmm...

    what do you get for winning?
    i understand publicity.. but theoretically for sure the top 3 get equeal ‘fame’…
    unless there is a specific prize. maybe COL sponsoring his cd or something..??

    sensitivity please!
    Guest
    sensitivity please!

    I just hope that they screen comments about what people think about the kids and only let positive ones go on. And I hope that the judges will also be nice and sensitive to the kids. It could kill a child’s self esteem if they will be treated like the adults last year.
    Looking forward but please don’t ruin our special talented Kinderlach.

    to 9: Great point
    Guest
    to 9: Great point

    You raised a very good point and from what I understand the judges will not be speaking about the kids competition and there won’t be comments at all about them for the exact reason you mentioned

    I think that this competition should go much more beyond Lubavitch, how about litvish, chassidish, sfardish?? I think this would be great for the entire frum communitites.

    WER’E WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    loveit!
    Guest
    loveit!

    love the competition, very excited, but I do agree with others. mendy pellin should be an MC not a judge. You get the same pellin value from hid MCing the ENTIRE competition, not just the show. he can host the videos, etc. but he has no place on a judges panel deciding MUSIC. Come on .. and this is NOT a knock on pellin, he says himself on his facebook. he knows nothing about music. He should be hosting.

    I think you should have incentives for the all the contestants and finalists, not just for the winner.

    #9 is right!
    Guest
    #9 is right!

    Totally Right! must be sensitive to the children who are in the contest! Children need to be told only good about themselves!! (unless being disciplined)

    im forsure winning

    please ask them come back
    Guest
    please ask them come back

    Please ask the extremeley talented Gershon Shapiro and Conoi Gruntblat to give it a secoond try. I am a HUGE FAN of both their voices. I wish icould hear them again and hopefully both live as finalists. They were both my favorite nit they were both mosjuged and mistreated. I wish they go for it again and you get a chance to correct the misjustice. It is simply a crime to let such singing talent go to waste.

    goo figureee!

    Can MBD Judge
    Guest
    Can MBD Judge

    I think Mordechai Ben David is the King of Jewish Music for sure! He has a gorgeous voice and seems like he would be a gentle judge and a real mentch. Not saying anything against anyone else, I think he would be an asset. Isn’t it open for anyone who wants to enter? Yeshivish, Chassidish, S’fardish – no one says they can’t enter, so pass it along! I love this contest and since I am partial to Blesofsky’s (related to one) – go win some!

    my suggestions
    Guest
    my suggestions

    This is a great opportunity for wannabe singers. I wish to see some great new talent this year. No offense but not everyone from last year were on par but certainly the semi-finalists should give it another try. I would suggest the following changes to them: 1) Choni Grunblat A great sweet voice. This time invest in your video a little more Judges did judge not just the voice). 2) Blesofskey Let us hear your voice and don’t mask it this time. 3) Gershon a great and powerful voice this time show your personality more and try to be comfortable… Read more »

    Does anyone know when they announce the 10 semi finalists?

    What will they be judging this time?
    Guest
    What will they be judging this time?

    I hope to see profesional comments coming from the judges, focusing on the singing, if this is what the competition is about.
    and show that they have a clear view on what they are looking for, and keep it till the end. nigunim-no nigunim, singing or presence, charisma…etc

    The word is that Gershon Shapiro will go for it again (heard on Facebook). I can’t wait to hear what song he will sing this time. I hope AF takes it a easy with him this time around. Let’s NOT chase away GREAT talent please.
