Hey! About American Idol Season 8, After watching the video below...I think someone got my vote...
YES! Von Smith just got in the auditions for American Idol Season 8...and I hope he reach the TOP 12. Although, he still needs to work on a lot of things like using his asset (his long range voice) in a proper way not just by throwing his voice out, most likely, all the time, and controlling his voice because it sounds weird sometimes when he shouts or something like that...but that's what American Idol is for...American Idol is not just looking for super amazing singers, they are also searching for an individual who can be molded from a good singer into THE BEST singer! And I think Von Smith has this potential (Keeping my fingers cross)!!!
Just one suggestion for Mr. Von if ever he reads this, you already have a GREAT voice you don't need to overuse it by shouting because it sounds weird sometimes (HONEST!)
Like the video below, this is PERFECT! You sound AWESOME here!
