The Stables Michigan Idol Show rocked out on Thursday, July 22, 2010.

Rock and Roll was the theme of the night, tunes from Metallica, AC/DC, Rob Zombie, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, The Who, Alice Cooper just to name a few of the rock band songs that contestants chose to sing during the Idol Show Competition as it's now down to the wire with one week to go.

"I think the competitors are starting to feel the pressure," said O.J. Cunningham who has been sitting in as a judge for the past month. "With only a few weeks to go," Cunningham added. "I think they (singers) might be realizing that there's only one more performance," he said. "It's like it's the moment of truth. One more performance and then the competition is over."

Idol Judge, George Lynch, said, "There have been a few people who have really stepped it up for the "theme weeks." With one week to go, Lynch added, "I'm really hoping that everyone kicks it up a notch . . . we love a close race . . . and this one is coming down to the wire."

The Michigan Idol Show which is held every Thursday at the Stables Martini & Cigar Bar located inside BARTS on Historic Midland Street is in its 16th week of the 18-week competition.

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

Those 5 Finalists will perform at the Labadie Pig Gig Vet's Park, Bay City, Michigan, Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 6:30 pm. One winner will be announced after that night's performances and will go on to a performance on Saturday, August 7, 2010 on the Labadie Pig Gig big stage at 5:50 pm. -- Opening for American Idol's Taylor Hicks and Gloriana. Next Thursday, July 29, 2010 is Country Night, where contestants must sing a song from the country category.
