Michigan Idol organizer, Josh Sharrow, is on a roll.

The turnout and the reception of the Michigan Idol competition at VNO's Restaurant on Midland Street on Bay City's WestSide is lighting up every Wednesday night.

Sharrow couldn't be happier.

"I'm so happy with the way this season is playing out at VNO's! What a great location for Michigan Idol," said Sharrow.

The Michigan Idol show had its beginnings back in 2007 when Steve Armstrong won the first competition on stage at the Pig Gig when he sang "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" for MyBayCity video cameras.

Things have changed since those early days but as Josh Sharrow points out . . . Change is Good!!

"This contest has really come a long way since it's inception! We've been using Level 47 Productions to provide a professional sound person and system," Sharrow pointed out. "It (pro sound system) really helps give the singers a real, live, on stage experience."

Michigan Idol long-time judge Shawn Doyle has seen it all. "People just keeep coming out of the woodwork and continue to impress us judges," said Doyle. "It seems like every week, someone new and talented shows up," Doyle added.

Judge Joe Gibson has been a competitor, a winner and now a judge for the Michigan Idol singing competition.

"When I competed," Gibson said, "It brought me in contact with a lot of great people," Gibson went on. "And it all happened because of the music at Michigan Idol," Gibson continued. "So I'm excited to be on the other end (judging) trying to help someone else achieve their goals," Gibson said.

Top prize for the competition will be $500 paid to the winner. You must perform at least 5 weeks to qualify for $500 cash prize.
