Recommended Posts

I’m glad they sent the contestants lights, looked like a decent amount of gear for the contestants.

From tv line article, it sounds like they’re going live with the Tuesday show. Seriously risky move - especially with kelly in the middle of nowhere Montana

That is going to be risky. She did say that they had people come out to help with their internet situation there after she was doing work for her show and it was taking a day+ (not a typo) to get anything uploaded. In recent things she's been doing versus a couple weeks ago, it seems that the internet environment has improved quite a bit so fingers crossed on that part.

So maybe some found out that their own homes is not the best place to film so they will be in other meaningful locations. Or maybe not

 

Pastor Todd's got 8 kids (presumably all at home, I know the oldest is ~20 but idk his living situation), considering how disruptive just one or two might be in filming I can't say I'd blame him or anyone else for choosing to film elsewhere. Not to mention pets or other background noise/space limitations/whatever (for example, Zan lives in a tiny home and I'm struggling to picture how all that equipment might fit in her space, but it looks like she's not inside the tiny home in her snippet of the video).

Blake's not actually "at home" either, he owns several buildings in downtown Tishomingo and seems to be shooting from there. Also looks like Kelly has set up a separate cabin, and not the one she's living in. Makes tons of sense, they both have have a lot of small children running around and not a ton of indoor room in their actual "houses". I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of the contestants didn't end up in an airbnb space, or offsite office. Nick of course has a massive house and no kids, and John a big house with an office.

 

It looked like a decent amount of equipment, and not something you're going to want to set up and take down multiple times, which means you either a) need to have no youngish kids, and enough room or b) a separate space you can close off to kids

Video of the coach and contestant setting up their gears. LOL Blake :lmao:throwing thousands of dollars worth of  equipment left and right


it’s all shtick. The theme of the video was that the contestants are perfectly competent techies, but the Coaches are befuddled luddites.

To be totally fair, of all the coaches I'd buy Blake being the one who struggled the most with setup, but still - you'd think they'd have a clip or two of some of the contestants being genuinely bewildered by the process.

Well Roderick did say he hoped they edited out all his crying, but he leans to the older end of the contestant age range. 
 

I read somewhere that Gwen’s brother was with Blake & Gwen and he works professionally as a videographer (or something like that).

The equipment the voice sent compared to what idol sent their contestants made idol look like a joke 🤣

Allegra on her live a few minutes ago mentioned that the performances are already recorded but the coaches reaction and feedback will be recorded on Sunday.

They were probably told to make a video to hide who won as well. Just imagine the 3 who lost and don't even get their's on air, TPTB can go cancel themselves.

I feel like you are only saying this cause Samatha lost 😂

Allegra said that Monday show will be filmed on Sunday live-to-tape in real time except the performance which were pre-recorded but Tuesday Show will be real live.

 

She mention the camera were Sony camera but she didn't show them just the light setup and a Microsoft surface tablet they sent.

Who said that?

jk, but I would still feel bad for the other 2 IF Sam did get eliminated. Nelson and TMH deserve their performance shown if it was already recorded.

This must be the setup. I don’t know what I’m looking at, tbh. Where’s the camera? What’s the purpose of the tablet?

Allegra said that the producers remote in on the tablet, so that's basically the lifeline of the whole production.

That makes sense. I need a wide angle view, to get a better look. Whatever it is, they had to make it simple enough for amateurs to set up and operate.

So do they get to keep all this. I'm sure idol is letting them keep their iphones lmao

Todd’s setup is in his church. 
 

 

Of course it is, and he’ll have his kids sitting there as audience

Maybe it will look different on TV,

but it looks a little on the drab side in the photo. Probably won’t matter.

Or maybe he'll go down like the one singer who happened to sing Hallelujah for the finale :rolleyes:

I can see how this might come across as pandering given the fact it is a church setup, but he's got one of the smaller Instagram followings (8k-ish vs Thunderstorm having nearly 50k) so fewer of his fans will see it than if it were in his Facebook group. Moreover, churches generally have decent acoustics, so if he has access to that kind of resource I'm not going to fault him for using it; in a situation like this, if I were in the same boat and had access to somewhere with good acoustics and room to set up that much equipment I'd likely do the same thing. In any case, at least I don't see a microphone stand wrapped in the American flag.

 

(You know your performance was bad when the rest of the coaches call you out on pitch issues when generally they don't get picky on live TV; literally the only reason this wasn't the worst of the night was Carter's "Take Me to Church" happening that week *cringes*)
