The competition at Michigan Idol at the Stables is heating up. Week 5 brought big crowds out on Wednesday night to see the talented performances of some of mid-Michigan's finest singers.

John Buehl, Manager of the Stables, was pleased (again) with the crowd turnout. "The crowd is getting bigger every week," Buehl said. "Wednesday night, the place to be is Stables."

Judges for Week 5 were Craig Alston, Deb "Paula" Pyscher and Mike Sheets. And they had their hands full trying to pick the best of the performers. "I was pleasantly surprised by the level of talent," said Alston. "The quality of singing was superb."

Winners this past week (June 6, 2007) were: (in no particular order)

  • Dena M. Pruitt
  • Ashley D. January Merrel
  • Kalei Souza
  • Kendra Woody
  • Karen Powell
  • Kate Gembrowski
  • Carl Neveau
  • Steve Armstrong
  • Tim Draves
  • Ed Reaume

    The weekly competition will continue until the 4th of July. Ten winners are picked every Wednesday. Winners advance.

    After the 4th of July, the best 10 will advance weekly with one performer eliminated at each competition. The "Final Four" will compete during the 2007 Pig Gig.

    Top prize for the competition is an all-expense paid trip to Vegas.

    Highlights of Week #5 were Nancy Billingsly's cover of a Joan Jett oldie, Art Dore's crowd-pleasing solo and Karen Powell's rendition of "Vision Of Love" by Mariah Carey.
