Finally uploaded some clips from my episode of MTV’s singing competition show “Copycat” onto youtube so I thought I’d blog a little bit about the experience. The idea of the show is that aspiring singers come on & try to imitate their favorite singer or an artist that they admire. There are 6 contestants copycatting 3 different artists per episode but only two people get to compete in the final to win $5000. They first battle against someone singing the same artist. The audience votes on who embodied them the best. After 3 rounds of this, the two winners with the highest scores get a “big cat chair” and a chance to be in the final round. Before the final, those two are made over to look like the artist they’re embodying. The audience votes again after a final song at who “copycatted” them the best. My artist was Sara Bareilles and after making it to the final round, I came in second place by .7 of a point! Overall, it was a whirlwind experience and really taught me alot about what goes on behind the scenes at these singing game shows. I hope you enjoy the clips – the full episode will be up in its entirety & better quality on MTV.com in about a month.
It’s been quite an exciting and busy past couple of weeks! At the end of May I posted a new Youtube cover video so please check it out ! I kicked off June with a show at the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd Wednesday the 4th – overall a great night! Premiered some new material & some new covers . I also posted an acoustic cover of Bright Eyes’ “First Day of My Life” up on bandcamp available for download/streaming
& The BIG news I promised – I was on an episode of MTV’s new singing competition show “Copycat” on June 10th! Still working on a way to get videos of the episode or clips up but THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED! It was definitely an interesting learning experience and hopefully I can upload pictures soon!
This Sunday June 22nd I will be playing in a showcase at Saddle Ranch in Universal Studios. Really looking forward to playing some new material & serenading some lovely faces
