The Michigan Idol judges said the singing contestants are raising the Bar At the Stables Michigan Idol Competition.

Dick Bork, Idol Judge, said, "Talent is getting better and better each week."

Each week, judges vote on; Talent, Stage Presentation, Attendance, Appearance, Reaction of audience.

This seven week competition is part of a series of competitions (Segments) which will be used to select finalists leading up to the Labadie Pig Gig.

Winner of each mini-competition will win a cash prize and will also be featured at an upcoming concert at the Prime Event Center in Downtown Bay City. In addition, these segment winners will qualify for the FINALS where they can earn the chance to perform at Labadie Pig Gig's Big Stage Concert during the Labadie Pig Gig weekend.
