    What?!?

    I can’t believe ___ didn’t make it! And ____ did? Judge ____ is biased because ___ is his ____’s ____! Everybody knows that.

    Typical comment…

    I said it from day 1. Don’t know him, but he’s still awesome!

    I was afraid some Avraham Fried might think of him as a threat to his career – I’m surprised he chose him.

    I’m a little surprised to see how harsh the judges are. If I were a guy who thought about submitting, but didn’t, I wouldn’t in a million years after seeing this. I feel awful for the contestants.

    Avremel, How could you criticize Gershon’s strength of voice out of all things….? and then you get so excited over Binyomin Moshe’s voice? Come on? Gershon should have been chosen he did an amazing job with a difficult song!

    Also, how could you not choose Grunblat?

    It is very noticeable the power this website has to bring out talent, and get people involved. Please use these talents to create other competitions and programs that bring out talent and strengthen chassidishkeit.

    My opinion
    Guest
    My opinion

    i love Baruch Sholom Blesofky – rare talent

    but…

    this is about singing, not finding the next lipa/berry weber/mendy pellin

    we have enough show ppl puting out cd’s every other day. this is about voice. and in that sense, i think the judges made a good call (while i would still go to any blesofsky concert)

    not on his video or how he spoke or if it was chasidish or not

    Dear Avremel
    Guest
    Dear Avremel

    Boruch Sholoms song is a Blues Shuffle.

    I believe you also have some contemporary songs (‘Uvenei Yisroel Yotzim’ is BigBand Swing, ‘Don’t Hide’ is a Romantic Ballad, ‘Never Alone’ is a 70s Disco, and ‘mi ma’ is FUNK!!!)

    Don’t criticize Boruch Sholom, he might be doing more contemporary than you, BUT DON’T FORGET WHO STARTED IT!!!

    I am so glad that the judges recognized the talents of the final three. I am blown away by Avraham Ohayan (I listened to his song on repeat for a good half hour), but was concerned that he wouldn’t be chosen because it’s “outside” of the more traditional Chabad/stam Jewish recordings that I’ve heard. To say the least, I am relieved that the judges criticized the overly produced recordings and videos. It has always been a pet peeve of mine that Jewish arraignments tend to be so drowned out by the instruments (and, those are typically synsethized to boot). Thank… Read more »

    Wow
    Guest
    Wow

    Choni Grunblatt should have been in the top 3. I would have picked him over Sadon. But I totally agree with the other two choices.
    Also, I certainly did not expect the judges to be so harsh and critical. They spent a whole lot more time on Chesronos than on Maalos. I found it very strange.

    whoever

    whoever

    whoever was chosen was chosen b/c hashem wanted to them to. so don’t blame anyone. i think everyone in the contest had talent but those 3 were exceptional.

    1. I find it amusing, to put it lightly, that AF criticizes people for their lack of “life” on the video – when we all know he’s pretty much stiff as a board on stage. I’ve even seen his hands go back and forth on many occasions – to the point where the viewer looses focus. But hey maybe he’s giving advice on his past mistakes. 2. Baruch Sholom was extremely creative, and i feel he showed enough vocal talent to at least get nominated. I didn’t agree with AF on BS. However all in all, I felt the judges… Read more »

    how can you compare? i don’t think it was the style of the song, i think AF was bothered by how he sang it – moaning, groaning and shouting etc. thats not the way a bochur (or anyone) should sing, especially after his intro about how much he loves chassidishe niggunim…

    should have been
    Guest
    should have been

    I think they could have beem a bit more sensitive to the singers they spoke about, they may have caused them to be embarased and thats not a mitzvah

    The winners are great!!! Why did they comment so much on their videos, I thought they weren’t judging based on it? ( Maybe they should have just sent in their voices, without a video.) Why did they put all the criticism on this video for all to see? Go Shuki!!!

    what was wrong with grunblatt?
    they agreed that he sung nice, chasidish and good performance (pelin said it himself, isnt he supposed to be the profesional?)
    so what was it the video?
    is a star he who makes the best video?
    ohayon has a better video?
    and what about the guy who sung forever one?
    the hands take him of the stage? i think thats ridiculus
    the guy had a great voice and sung realy hartzig?

    basicly jewish music will always be the same, same voices, same style etc.

    No he wasn’t. He said “from one kohen to another stick to nigunim”. Also his facial expressions on “what on earth was that? reggaie, rap, hip-hop” told you exactly that he didn’t agree with the STYLE.

    Problem is that Avremel himself has introduced MANY GOYISHE styles into the Jewish world. Growing up, Avremel and MBD were the ONLY singers we listened to and they introduced me to rock, shuffle, funk, disco, country, jazz — you name it!

    DEAR AVREMEL

    DEAR AVREMEL

    Why do you knock BS for singing “Jazz”?

    Isn’t Bein Kach, Jazz? Did your produced not tell you?

    I hear what they say about BSB, although he is by far the most compelling, you were looking for raw voice, not twist voice yada yada yada…

    But Grunblatt!! He was incredibly beautiful!! But I’m glad Sadon (at least they were correct in one of their choices) was chosen. He really was hartzig.

    I gotta say I was very impressed how the judges broke down and stripped away all the hype thats clouded peoples perception of the contestants .it was refreshing to hear proffesional advice and remarks from experts in this industry, furthermore their honest and accurate feedback should be embraced by the finalist , they should use it and improve themselves not G-d forbid throw in the towel What the judges did for them is priceless In fact as a gesture to the 16 that didn’t get the votes ,but never the less worked hard If they could have the judges critic… Read more »

    2 out of 3 judges were very pleased. One judge had an issue not with the product, but with the fact that he said “I love Chassidishe Music” with your hands stretched out. And followed with a hip-hop song?
    C’mon, “Don’t hide from me……..”

    Next year I hope the organizors do listen and allow the judges to put through contestants based on their findings
    and I agree the judges might see something they realy like from the other tapes
    I for one was shocked how some of the other contestants did not make the top ten

    great job judges
    Guest
    great job judges

    so for next year,
    first the judges weed out the “fakers” and they pick top ten.
    THEN let the public choose from the real talent.
    look how many million people voted for grunblatt, wasted their time! bsb, a waste of time!

    Yay! Avraham Ohayon won. he was very good and had a beautiful performance. the judges were a bit too harsh/ blunt, but whatever. I just hope the contestants they spoke about wont get offended and be sad.

    On what criteria?
    Guest
    On what criteria?

    On what criteria are the judges marking?

    I think that all the singers here have major potential.
    Showing your songs to people who do not recognize and cannot appericiate the syle of singing or song that you’ve sung does not mean that the individual that has sang has a bad voice.
    I personally think that all the singers here were great and need to find their particular group of people who enjoy their music.
    overall great voices. Particularly, I enjoyed M.L’s voice. sing a better song though, next time. 😉

    desagree with #92
    Guest
    desagree with #92

    the fact that a judge said that rumblat puts ppl to sleep dosn’t mean anything he himsef puts people to sleep!
    how exacly does grumblatt put ppl to sleep?
    thru his singing not being computerised like the others?
    thu him singing hartzig?
    because he deedn’t make a fool out of himself?
    what about shmuly? because his voice wasn’t computerised he is not good enough?

    i think the judges are making a big mistake instead of judging voices and talent they choose nice videos and not lubavitche songs!
    at least ohayon is got talent but the rest aren’t close to grunblatt and shmuly

    Great contest- disappointing results

    Impressed with the great idea of a contest, but disappointed that the ‘hollywood’ attitude prevailing over talents. All 3 winners have high pitched voices and great work up in the studio. The ones that followed the rules of ‘ record as you can’ have not been chosen despite the talent they can offer.

    You guys are both great guys, really musical, well trained voices and a pleasure to listen to, but I wouldn’t say you were blessed with a “superstar voice” so the judges are correct in my opinion. but keep on singing!

    But what’s with the entertainer? Enough comments about not being a music professional. That’s quite clear. Was he supposed to be the foil for the other two. I actually gained appreciation for A. Fried and M. Sojcher who handled themselves elegantly and professionally. The other fellow seemed to waste my time and insult my intelligence. Consumers and the general public do not require clowns at the bull fight to understand what is going on. Often time the producers under estimate the viewing public’s intelligence.

    Fried was actually understating in his criticism Shapiro’s voice quivers on low notes and and thins out on high notes. But he can keep a tune.

    Choni Grunblatt is awesome I’d love to hear his album in the near future he gave a perfect audition. Choni Teitelbaum is VERY talented I don’t know if his voice is the best but he certainly has allot to offer musically, I predict you will you will hear from him in the near future as well. Boruch Blesofsky is another great talent he composes phenomenal compositions and sings pretty well as well he will be heard from as well. Yisroel Koch can do a one man show with his guitar and an amplifier. Avremel Blesofsky has a beautiful voice that… Read more »

    Shuky Sadon and the Israeli guy on the guitar are ample winners.

    Avremel criticized Boruch out of disappointment!

    Avremel knows Boruch personally and thinks highly of his talents. He can’t figure out why Buroch is singing so meshugah.

    I don’t think Buroch war vary serious about the competition. He just used if as a platform for a creative bug he had to get out.

    Kudos to the judges

    Next year please don’t reinvent the wheel by polling the audiance to determine who the judges get to see that a recepe for disaster
    have the judges carefully analize the tapes and put forward their choices this way the audiance too will have no choice but to score on talent not popularity that’s the way it’s done for 9 seasons and still going strong
    I’m looking forward to next year contest I hope collive is listening
    this way we can be spared all the comments

    1st off congrats to the 3 finalists. I was surprised however that they chose people who 2 of 3 I think can make EXCELLENT Jewish pop singers, but I’m not so sure they could really “bring it” with Chabad Nigunim, which I thought is all that will be performed at the concert. Averemel kept commenting about people who should have remained true to the Chassidishe flavor of a nigun but then chose 2 excellent pop stars? Also I was surprized that the 1 “non-music-world” judge was the only one of the 3 who seemed to be able to read through… Read more »

    Why pin-point on the video details? Look at the voice!

    Why do the judges comment on the video performance? isnt that not the point? the point was the singing. michael complained about the light behind teitelbaum’s piano, such a small thing and dosent say anything about b.m.’s bed. just a thought… Go ohayon! was a very nice singer and cant wait to see him on the concert! ohayon and binyomen moshe very similar to me. but one’s french and the other israeli. Lehr turned A.F. off! well, you were great anyway! the one out there with the personality. congrats to the top 3!

    Maybe it is because he is the only gershon around….. I thought that Fried was not right on as you say. He is the only one who was not chosen but got the best coments from the judges. He should have been one of teh three along with Sadon and Ohayon. Binyomin Moshe does not even come close.

    I loved the comments of the judges, a lot of them were on the ball. I do not see anything wrong with Choni Grunblatt’s performance, video could have been improved (but is that what the judges judge? well maybe). I do not see why the the judges went wild over Avraham Ohayon. Although, I listened again after their comments and noticed a uniqueness to his voice. Maybe I’m bias because I did not enjoy the song. Choni and Gershon you are by far the runner-ups and I am not so sure that there was antiquate reason to leave you guys… Read more »

    157 – I agree. Gershon was the one semi-finalist I thought was actually vocally absolutely stunning. He has a big voice and I disagree with Avremele. I thought hit the highs very strongly. I hope he doesn’t give up. I would buy his CD any day.

    To 136 That’s how I saw it as well, AF was disappointed, he was expecting him to do something serious. But he was not serious about the competition at all he just wanted to have some fun so he put out that funny video (which was actually very creative). I know AF and I know BSB and I know that AF thinks highly of his talent. I just saw on the CD cover of AF’s earlier Chabad music album and BSB is in his kids choir so he probably knows him for a quite a while. TO BSB: If you… Read more »

    Prediction

    with the 3 that were chosen ,You have one who is distinctly different, fresh and exciting , possibly a new genre in jewish media and then you have 2 quiet similar ,with one of them having a slight edge over the other one because his ablity to go from singing to falceto beautifully and that shows he’s had training without a doubt And now for my prediction, if the band can pull of the new fresh sound, and the audiance goes nuts then he has a great chance of winning, however if the audiance sticks to the tried and true… Read more »

    140 is SPOT ON!

    “Averemel kept commenting about people who should have remained true to the Chassidishe flavor of a nigun but then chose 2 excellent pop stars?”

    But this can be explained. The two pop stars are not “eigeneh” and so he did not judge them for their genre choice. Lehr and BS look like LFB’s (Lubies from birth) and so there is disapointment to see them pasturing in strange waters.

    A transcript of AF’s statements should be made and studied in yeshivos worldwide: Sichos chulin shel talmidei chachamim tzrichim limud!”

    Bad idea for judges

    This should not have gone to the judges. The winners should have been chosen on our votes alone. WE are going to enjoy (or sit through) the concert on OUR dime, unlike the judges who are either performing or will undoubtedly get a free pass.

    Just because I enjoy Avremel and Mendy’s work does not mean I want to hear the same music as they like; I doubt I eat the same food as they do or use the same brand of deodorant either for that matter :).
