Boruch sholom blesofsky to 222
January 31, 2010 6:19 am

why trying to make a shidduch?

I have an idea
January 31, 2010 5:42 am

maybe the judges should personaly telophone the 3 chosen contestents with the news and record there phone conversations……I would love to here that! they could make this into a cute video anouncing the winners! They could also film there procces of choosing and there comments on the 3 top winners and also put that into the clip… cant wait to find out!

idea
January 30, 2010 3:31 pm

maybe they should only allow audio in the contest so there wont be the distraction and shtick and only the sound of the voice can be judged

201 I agree....
January 30, 2010 3:11 pm

Unless it is coming from him, I don’t get it either. I personally feel taht teh top ten are in did the best. I don’t at all agree with the order but it does not matter as teh judges will pick not based on vote. I wish you ten all the best.

BENTAMIN MOSHE!
January 30, 2010 1:27 pm

BENTAMIN MOSHE has GOT to win!

Charisma and humor is part of what makes a singer apealing!
January 30, 2010 1:23 pm

It’s what makes people keep there interest in a singer. This competition is to find new stars, the new hit. A hit cant just have a good vioce! He has to be unique in someway, entertaining! That’s how a singer maintains there career! There cant be a singer without a fanbase! I think they are looking for the potential of a long term singer! So you people with a just good vioce, THey are probobly looking for something more. Just think, what do you have to offer that the average person that justs sings well doesnt? (its gotta be unique.)… Read more »

January 30, 2010 1:10 pm

why isn’t boruch sholom and avraham ohayon higher???????
they are so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congregation Bnei Nosson
January 30, 2010 12:43 pm

Going purely by voice, Shmuli Steifel has the most vibrant, exciting and resonating voice. Seriously. He sounds like a pro. Not just an average guy singing a song partially on key. I want to show his video to my Baalei Batim, I’m sure they’ll go wild over him, and we’ll bring him down for the Yomim Noraim, or just for an enjoyable concert.

January 30, 2010 12:41 pm

your poetry is indeed nice. but, as the saying goes. i told u a million times don’t exaggerate. lol

( i happen to agree about a belsofsky being one of the best but its only a game!!)

Gershon, Ohyon, Grunblat
January 30, 2010 12:37 pm

Any other choices and the judges missed the point……

shuky sadon
shuky sadon
and eeeeeeermm shuky sadon!!
i have to say that admittedly i listen to non jewish music just because its easy on the ear but doesnt do anything to me.When i listened to sadon i can honestly say it touched me deeper.Behatzlacha shuky

i know wht i am talking about
January 30, 2010 11:27 am

shmuli steifel is gonno be no.1 he is the besssst singer and has the besssssst voice

go achmedinijad
January 30, 2010 11:24 am

avremel belsofskys presence is missed and absence is felt. the fact that he is not from the top 3 proves that this vote is about as valid as the one that brought achmedinijad in to power.
‘if these are your stars, then they are either burnt out or at least many light years away”

am i missing something?
January 30, 2010 10:57 am

i dont know why everyone is going crazy about bsb

Avraham Ohayon !!!!!
January 30, 2010 8:30 am

I hope he will be chosen by the judges!!!

January 30, 2010 7:24 am

yisrael koch is the real WINNER obliviosly the voters voted on popularity shame sick disgusting

awesome!!
January 29, 2010 9:56 am

good to see everyone so involved and passionate about something good- some singers are obviously better than others even with in the top 10.

this is the best ilove this
January 29, 2010 9:29 am
OHAYON
January 29, 2010 8:48 am

OHAYON WON 100%!!! HE ROXXX!! SADON, SHAPIRO, AND GRUNBLATT ALSO DO BUT OHAYON ROX!!!

Agree with 179
January 29, 2010 8:45 am

They are the three that can really entertain and they sing pretty well.
But Choni Grunblatt and Avremel Blesofsky have the truly magnificent voices its a shame former didn’t make the top ten but thank g-d the latter is number 1 vote getter.
Those are MY top five, since everyone else is giving their opinion.
Grunblatt
Blasofky Senior
Blesofsky Junior
Sadon
Lehr

Gershon is one of a kind!!!
January 29, 2010 8:39 am

Choni Grunblat, Shuky, and Ohion I like too but Gershon is head and shoulders above them. He sings Anovim better then does Mordechi! That is saying something.
Huge fan! You are the one! Trust me!!!

What I Want to See
January 29, 2010 8:30 am

I hope the judges choose 3 different styles and genres (ex: traditional chassidic, chazzanus, israeli, rocky, etc) in order to draw out a larger crowd.

dont know ummmmmmmm
January 29, 2010 6:57 am

Someone tell me, does it go from 10 is the best and on? Or the other way around?!?!?……………Bsb i want to see u on stage!

Blesofsky & Sadon in a duet.

They were all really good and enjoyable to listen to;)

TO 173
January 29, 2010 6:02 am

Moshe Lehr is funny AND he seems to have an amazing voice! he doesnt have that backup of soundeffects like everyone else does to hide the imperfections… yet he still sounds incredible!!
my prediction: Lehr, Saadon,Ohayon
BSBs video might be entertaining… but theres no voice to judge upon, and like said already- this is a VOICE competetion not a music video competetion.
They should have a second round of songs like they do on american idol – everyone singing wihtout musical instruments so the judges can really hear the talent.
once again.. GO MOSHE LEHR!!

Chony Grunblatt! you ar the best!
January 29, 2010 5:54 am

I think the real competition now is between Grunblatt, Ohayon and Sadon. I would be surprised if the judges choose others.

Whois the very intelligent, the big, the “musicly knowledgable point of view” ???
looool

anyone care what is in your ipod or else!!

The judges will never chose stieffel because he is a chazan and it’s not what the competition call of!!
This is a Jewishstar and not a chazanStar!

Or maybe he’ll be choosen, without any future!!

From another “musicly knowledgable point of view” loool

Who is everyone trying to convince with the comments?
January 29, 2010 3:15 am

Are you trying to convince the judges? I don’t believe they will base their decision on these comments (and if they do then we are in trouble)
Are you trying to convince yourselves? Nu nu 🙂

CHONI AND OHAYON AND SHUKI
January 29, 2010 3:15 am

AVRAHAM FRIED, MENDEL AND MICHAEL IF U DONT CHOOSE THEM U WONT KNOW WHATS MISSING. EVERYONE : MOSHE LEHR IS FUNNY BUT THE POINT OF THIS CONTEST WAS TO VOTE FOR GOOD VOICES NOT FOR FUNNY PPL!

most of them r good choises

OHAYON OHAYON OHAYON !!!!!

the top three here are the best ones!! nothing to change

from a musicly knowledgable point of view
January 28, 2010 10:09 pm

I listened to quite a nice amount of voices over and over again and I came to the conclusion that 1)Shmuli Stiefel definately has the most real voice! We’re talking about natural sound, power, keys most people can’t hit, keeping a tune in an EXTEREMLY difficult song (kol hakavod in challenging yourself to such a song, you did great), I can also see some good stage skills involved overthere (handmotions, smiling, etc. all very important for a concert), P.S. I am not a tremendous fan of chazzonus,(nor am I related to him) but this guy is something else! 2)Next would… Read more »

where is the vote tally?
January 28, 2010 6:51 pm

On the Jewish Star website it states as follows: “and the top vote-getters will then be reviewed by the contest judges, who will choose three finalists.”

I understand that to mean; Regardless of what the votes are, the JUDGES will choose a contestant! Basically, there is no connection between who the JUDGES choose and how many votes a contestant got. Case in point, where is the vote tally? Contestants were encouraged to make recordings and video’s but no mention or encouragement to “get votes.’

The Finalist have NOTHING to do with the voting they were all picked by the JUDGES!

I’ll be honest, I am not big into this music/singing thing but when I heard him I knew he must be really good because even I appreciated it. objective???? voting for CHONI is the smartest most educated decesion. No surprise he’s number one.

January 28, 2010 5:31 pm

YISROEL KOCH original compositions with gentle soul so soothing to listen to . the fact that he has a guitar in his tool box only adds. he’s very musical, but i think he just need to learn how to use his voice correctly, but I do like his voice SHUKY SADON: classic Quality with promise but needs to find out what about his personality is unique that he could contribute to his singing.{He sounds like Avraham fried , which is good, but I’ll bet he could find a way to stand out for something that only he has.}He is musically… Read more »

You Should here him live, he is truly talented. what a voice!
#1 he has the richest voice
#2 it is different than most singers ( most of the other singers sound just like the rest of the singers out there, it is nice to hear a different style)
#3 original song – most of these other contestants would have a very hard time singing it.
plus he is a great performer and can sing many diffrent styles of music – not just chazzonus

January 28, 2010 5:00 pm

Everyone, calm down. It is both: Lots of family and freinds voted for “their” guy and lots of objective people voted objectiveley (although not many of those). The good ones ended up with both and the bad ones only with “their” votes. It is however hard to estimate how much of “their” vote each person got. Which is why it is great that the judges will choose who they believe are the best. I liked most of the ones who were chosen as top ten but I don’t believe in the order. I don’t think Choni Gruntblat is better than… Read more »

I think its time for the world of jewish music to invest there time in a solo instrument act

There are so many talented jewish people whove mastered an instrument. Why not give them a chance to shine as well?

Iv’e read ALL the comments during my freed up time and I’ve seen people have MANY DIFFERENT OPINIONS and IDEAS of what vocal talent is! so I believe that the top ten REALLY ARE the top ten based on the votes of MANY PEOPLE with VARIOUS OPINIONS!

For all those that are saying this is a popularity contest: Look at the 3 with the most votes. Why would the guys that sing the best also happen to be the most popular? Cmon, you can get your network of ppl to vote for you up until a certain point. After that it’s up to the rest of the people and depends on whether you are good or not. The 3 with the top votes definitely deserve to be there based on pure talent. I guess we will see next week who the 3 are. Until then, good luck… Read more »

His voice is as sweet as honey.

I have no idea who he is, but if you are reading this Mr. Ohayon, I am one person who would buy your CD.

That’s not to say the others weren’t as good, but he is definitely top 3 material. I’m rooting for him to win. What a voice! I’d love to hear him sing a Niggun, though.

January 28, 2010 3:29 pm

GREAT IDEA!! (although my fav’s made it)

ohayon
January 28, 2010 3:29 pm

ohayon should win. he is the only one who’s CD i would buy. isn’t that the idea? to create a jewish music star who would sell lots of records?

blesofsky rocks!! i cant wait for him to wint!

MYYYYYY FAVORITES!
January 28, 2010 3:20 pm

i wish there could be five top finalists – these are my favorites – not in order:
Gershon, Moshe, Boruch Sholom, Ohayon, Shuky Sadon!!!

grumblat is got to win
January 28, 2010 2:57 pm

grumblat is the real stuff
why should we go for the same we already have
mizrachi singers etc.?
the guy who sings ani maamin dosn’t even sound beter than yoni shlomo and every budy agrees……
so ppl pick up on the real talent, the naural profecionalisim, the good voice and the hergesh

Mazal tov to the winners of this round!
January 28, 2010 2:54 pm

And as for Those who didnt win dont worry,This may not be the end of the road for you! The point is that this talent show exposed your talent (if you have) to the public. This means that if you managed to get a fan base There are fans out there waiting for your next move!(you can measure that based on the comments posted about you on collive) So mazel tov to you to!

nmber 2 w/o a doubt!!
January 28, 2010 2:04 pm

he sings the best! you dont have to so musical to hear the vocal quality and that he’s been through some training. i dont know him and still voted for him. some people who made it to the top 10 definitely got some of their votes from ppl they know.!!

# 52
January 28, 2010 1:54 pm

i was writing about lehr…the only one with no sound effects or recording…just pure vocals..imagine him in a recording studio…AND HES A REAL ENTERTAINER NATURALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i thought the other blesofsky would get in for sure!
January 28, 2010 1:51 pm

what happened???????????
He should put out his own cd of chabad niggunim!

Nissen Brenenson rocks!
January 28, 2010 1:47 pm
SHUKY!!!!
January 28, 2010 1:39 pm

SHUKY SHOULD BE IT!!! HE IS IT ACTUALY! HE Has the NUMBER 1 VOICE and sings with his heart and soul. Its not fake like the other ones-he’s realy special and has tremedous NATURAL (not modifies by computers)TALENT!!!!

for real!
January 28, 2010 1:18 pm

Without doubt, Moshe Lehr is the most entertaining, and has a real sweet voice-for all those of you complaining about fancy music videos to hide true voice, Moshe didnt do that! Number 2 Shuky Sadon has the nicest voice!!! And thats it!
BSB has a really really amazing voive! He just doesnt show it here….not sure what he was trying to do in this video!!!! But if you heard his voice outside this competition, it really is one of the nicest voices I’ve heard!!
And those, in my humble opinion, should be the 3 finalists!

where is the top singer?
January 28, 2010 1:13 pm

January 28, 2010 12:43 pm

The contest was set up with rules. They did not say top 10 per say but they did say that the judges will chose from the top vote getters. Just because someone lives far away does not mean that they don’t have anetwork through family or face book freinds (not only people from Crown Heights vote). It could be that alot of teh good ones got extra votes besides family etc. I disagree the the top ten are in correct order based on votes.

now watch their videos and think……
arent they realy the best out of the rest?
so i belive the votes are true, and the one with most votes should be the winner!

you are right, it is a numbers game. Thsoe who have a huge network of friiends family etc got the highest votes. note the 2 cousins up there. but the question is, there are people up there who voally are not on the same league as some that did not make it to the top 10. those people, even thought they are more talented, got left behind. so what kind of a contest is this? i think to be fair to all the contestants, the judges should review EVERY contestant, and then post comments. plus they should make 2 more… Read more »

Everyone should come down ITS ALL A NUMBERS GAME
January 28, 2010 11:51 am

This top ten is based on VOTES ONLY not on any professional opinion from any one. Whoever campaigned and worked hard on getting the vote made it. the next stage has NOTHING TO DO WITH VOTE but everything to do with professional opinion. So the number of cousins, uncles, and freinds WILL NOT MATTER for the next stage. In my humble opinion it will be: Ohayon, Gruntblat, and of course Gershon (not necessarily in that order). On stage they will be judged based on their live performance which will bring this to a whole new level. since we have not… Read more »

Is there a way somehow to get some of these songs off to an ipod? I particularly like the song “Romemu Hashem” but wonder if the singer would allow it to be copied.

Gershon will win for sure!!!

How can I get tickets to the concert? and who else is performing at the concert?

Gershon=Winner

Great choices!

They’re all really good!
Good luck to Binyomin Moshe I hope you win!!!!

Since the judges will decide
January 28, 2010 10:38 am

They will not choose by popularity but by professional opinion. in which case it will most likely be

1)Gershon
2)Sadon
3)Ohyon

January 28, 2010 9:32 am

I agree. People are missing that this was determined by popular vote. No bearing necessarily on who is better than who. Whether or not you agree with how Jewish Star chose to determine the top 10, they were very clear that it would be based ONLY on votes for the top 10. So who you think is best – or even who the JUDGES think is best, is irrelevent because they are going purely by numbers here, which is exactly what they said they would do for this stage from the start.

real Gezzeh
January 28, 2010 9:28 am

I’m so disappointed! I know who’s the best, but the judges are never gonna choose him, cause he’ll perform better and wow the crowd much more than Avraham fried… and his name is… that’s right SHMULIE STIEEEL…

not just make nice videos.

ohayon deserves it. he really has it all. rimler should have been there too- great powerful hartzig voice. yukdoff has the pure voice.
can we pick top 10 again?

#22 to 62 and 64
January 28, 2010 9:21 am

true, i forgot that they were being voted- but even so, as good as most of the other singers were, people usually go for the “out there” one- which was HIS the rest were good, im not bashing them, but usually the weirder ones get the most attention. good luck to them all!

to 59
January 28, 2010 9:19 am

few examples who are more vocally trained but left out…Russel ,Rimler, Shmueli, Omari,Markel
few examples who are not trained but made it are…Sadon,Teitelbaum,lehr

To 55 and 57
January 28, 2010 9:17 am

I agree with you. In my opinion avremel blesofsky is 2nd after grunblatt but this goes by votes, apparently he didn’t get them. To 57 there is no organized “they” it’s just random voters.

also to #22
January 28, 2010 9:12 am

“they” did not put him there because of anything – “they” merely counted the votes and informed us of the results.

so what’s wrong with picking someone cuz of creativity? An excellent singer (Av Fried, MBD or whomever you like) always tries puts tons of effort into creating a creative album. Not sure what your point is – please explain

theres only one #1...in my mind anyway

To 52 – great opinion, but who exactly are you talking about?
to 54 – while this contest is great promotion and a good step, I think it’ll take much more than winning this contest to win a record deal. I’m guessing producers aren’t waiting breathlessly to throw 100G on the table based solely on someone winning this contest.

This is what I thought it would be.

How on earth is Avremel Blesofsky not on this list?
He has THE best voice, never mind the top 10!

When can we vote again?
January 28, 2010 8:30 am

How does 10/24 make sense? That’s not top ten, that’s just top half, or anyone above average. The top five in this list is a much better representation of who is outstanding.

Singers 3 & 2 were spectacular. I hope Avraham Ohayon wins and gets a record deal.

agree with #18
January 28, 2010 8:27 am

A fan of avremel and his brother

open your eyes
January 28, 2010 8:23 am

ppl should realize that he is the only one with no fancy sound effects and no fancy footwork, what he did took guts, he is an amazing entertaining person. i know for a fact that he didnt even ask people to vote for him and he did this merely for entertainment. truth be told, he is funny and a comedian with tremendous personality, who will not just be another singer…..

Avraham Ohayon

January 28, 2010 8:02 am

As an expert on vocal training I can tell you some who made it in top 10 don’t sing vocally correct, while some who didn’t I can hear had professional voice training.

Boruch Sholom B
January 28, 2010 8:01 am

Boruch Sholom Blesofsky should be part of the 3 finalists- for personality, voice, character and the ability to entertain.

Shmuly Rimler is a great Chazzan more than he is a stage performer.

I liked Shmuly Rimler too but maybe the reason he and some others did not make it is because they didn’t get the word out to people to vote – remember, it’s a purely numbers game at this stage. Also maybe because they didn’t use everything at their disposal in their favor. The public does not always recognize the difference between a well produced voice and a naturally rich one. American idol, you will note, has the competitors competing on even ground at all times, like on the opening round none of them are allowed music or effects of any… Read more »
