Michigan Idol Judge, Mike Bacigalupo, said, "This entire Idol season was filled with some great talent and some talent that needed a little work, but all in all, was a great season and look forward to seeing everyone back at the next segment."

Michigan Idol Judge, Josh Sharrow, said, "This competition relies heavily on attendance, missing 1 or 2 nights of Idol could really be detrimental to someone's final score. The difference between 1st place and 2nd place could have been swayed by one more voting sheet."

Michigan Idol Judge, Tommy Anderson said, "Over the course of a competition, the camaraderie that builds and grows between the contestants, and the friendly and hopefully helpful banter back and forth with the's quite an experience."

Anderson continued, "The winner was an easy and obvious choice this round. Next season it might not be so easy. It's been great to be a part of the Michigan Idol Contest at the Stables."
