It was a Michigan Idol Show Night Extraordinaire! Including Fireworks and all!

The Michigan Idol Show which is held every Thursday at the Stables Martini & Cigar Bar located inside BARTS on Historic Midland Street has four weeks left of the competition.

Four Finalists plus a wild card (on-line voting) will be chosen after competition on Thursday, July 29, 2010.

Those 5 will perform at the Labadie Pig Gig held August 5, through August 7, 2010. One winner will be announced after the night's performances. Beginning next Thursday, (July 8, 2010) the contestants will be singing songs according to the "Theme Nights" -- listed below.

  • July 8 - Motown
  • July 15 - Beatles
  • July 22 - Rock
  • July 29 - Country

  • MyBayCity Publisher, O. J. Cunningham, sat in as Michigan Idol Judge for Mike Bacigalupo who was not able to attend. Cunningham teamed with George Lynch of Charter Communications and musician Tommy Anderson to provide commentary and constructive criticism of the evening's performers.

    "I had a good time," Cunningham said of his stint at judging. "It always looks easy when you sit in the crowd and watch the judges make comments," Cunningham continued. "But when they point at you, turn on your microphone and ask for an opinion," Cunningham said. "It's definitely unsettling."

    Cunningham said that working with Anderson and Lynch was a lot of fun. "We had a ton of laughs," he said about sitting between the other two judges. "I think the highlight of the night (for me)," Cunningham said, "was when the fan behind me reached over and took the microphone away from me and started praising one of the performers," he concluded.

    "What a Hoot," Cunningham laughed. "I'd do it again in a minute."
