Seventeen year old Haley Lamb
of Bay City won the Michigan Idol contest held at the Stables Martini & Cigar Bar in Bay City on Thursday, February 25, 2010.
The Contest was an eleven week contest. Lamb attends Western High School. Lamb said, "I can't believe I won, I'm so excited, this is the best experience I've had in years."
Lamb won a cash prize and will perform at the Prime Event Center in Downtown Bay City on Saturday, March 20, 2010 as the opening act for the Bob Seger Tribute Band - Lookin Back. (Starting at 7:30 to 8:00 PM
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 judges.....it'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."
Haley Lamb was also the top choice among online voters getting over 25% of the total 15,000+ votes cast over the 11-weeks of competition.
