I'll plug my own:


  1. Tamara
  2. Marisa (surprisingly, though as a huge P!nk fan I admit I'm probably biased based on song selection)
  3. Jim
  4. John
  5. Payge (I love her, I just kinda expected more based on previous findings; had she lived up to my hopes I'd probably have switched her and Marisa)
  6. Eli
  7. Joseph
  8. Ian
  9. Lauren

1. Payge (She’s just really cool)


2. Tamara (There are things to work on but overall really enjoyable)

4. Jim (Same as John but less impressive)



5. Eli (the beginning was great but it got very karaoke)

6. Ian (intriguing tone but nothing exciting)

7. Joseph (snoozefest)

8. Marisa (love the song but it was pretty messy)


9. Lauren (karaoke and it wasn’t a good one)

1. Lauren - 9.5: really spoke to me for some reason i can't quite explain.

2. Marisa - 9.25: very impressive range and she held out the first higher note for a very long time. 

3. Tamara - 9: put too much into her performance but very clearly has potential.

4. Jim - 9: very interesting voice, perhaps an inflated score because i am so surprised i liked male country.

5. Eli - 8.75: surprising that he's a one chair turner, his voice didn't go much anywhere exciting, but he was very strong in the range he remained. his voice was smooth and really easy on the ears.

6. Payge - 8.75: has a lot of potential. her high notes were way too thin to rank her high among these overall "solid" performances in the premiere. hoping that she relies on her lower register in the future.

7. John - 8.5: impressive range but i disliked his tone. i hope that he uses his higher voice less often, but this appears unlikely.

8. Ian - 8.5: impressed that i liked a country singer so much. he has an extremely interesting tone. 

9. Joseph - 7: hit all the notes well and had a really smooth voice, but i didn't feel anything.


Well, since I can't figure out how the spoiler tags work, for those who have seen the spoilers for the pre-taped rounds, it's interesting to note who moves on and who doesn't in respect to my list.

I don't agree with many of the harsh criticisms tbh. I thought it was overall very enjoyable. Some of them felt middle-tier, but I don't think anyone was truly bad.


1. John Holiday (9.5/10) - I mean obviously I knew the spoilers but damn that was impressive!

2. Payge Turner (9/10) - Despite some questionable pacing, I loved the whole thing!

3. Tamara Jade (8.5/10) - She did fantastic!

4. Ian Flanigan (8/10) - That TONE! I really like him!

5. Marisa Corvo (8/10) - It took a while to really get into because the song's kind of a dud, but she nailed the last bit. Well deserved!

6. Joseph Soul (8/10) - Surprised that I liked it as much as I did

7. Jim Ranger (7.5/10) - Not my cup of tea, but I found his performance enjoyable

8. Eli Zamora (7.5/10) - A good performance throughout, but there's several better versions

9. Lauren Frihauf (7/10) - I can agree this was the weakest of the night, but I didn't find her bad at all? Just clearly lacking experience.

I would like to base it off on who surprised me the most and who I think have potential to do well in the competition and who overall did the best.


1. Payge Turner (10/10)- Yes her pacing and some of her notes were not clean, but I just love her stage presence and man that very low note at the start, ooh chills girl! I am going to watch out for her. I also love her cool stage presence, sucker for her voice. She's got some Vanessa F. vibes on her but with a lot of differences (love them both). 


2. Jim Ranger (9.4/10)- IDK but he was probably the artist that I did not think I am going to like, but I actually loved his voice! He's got so much soul with a little bit of country. He can be a HUGE threat to the competition. Better keep your eyes on him.


3. John Holliday (9/10)- I'm gonna be honest, I was kind of disappointed? He was just so overhyped here in IDF to the point that I was expecting more, but his tone was screechy-ish. However, I couldn't deny his potential and that voice ooh church.

I really think he nailed really hard his Battles and Knockouts, so I can't wait.

He's got so much Davon Fleming vibes with a higher range and jazzy type for me.



I'm too tired to comment but here are the rest:


4. Ian Flennigan (8/10)

5. Marisa Corvo (8/10)

6. Tamara Jade (7.5/10)- unpop opinion but whatever, I'm not too keen of her voice, but I love her personality though, would be interesting to watch her.

7. Lauren Firhauf (7/10)

8. Eli Zamora (6.5/10)

9. Joseph Soul (5/10)

1. Tamara Jade - 9.6, I really liked her vocal technique. She killed it.

2. Jim Ranger - 9.4, his voice is so cool and I was so impressed towards the end.

3. John Holiday- 9.3, just wow. Giving me Davon Flaming vibes.

4. Marissa Corvo - 8.5, liked her tone and range.

5. Joseph Soul - 7.9, have a nice tone, love how he sang a Bob Marley song.

6. Payge Turner - 6.0, I like the low notes but I'm not impressed. I expected much because I like that song.

7. Eli Zamora - 5.6, It's good just I don't know what he's singing about.

8. Ian Flanigan - 4.0, boring country singer.

9. Lauren Frihauf - 3.9, I expected more because of the spoilers.

Helloooo Snowflake

1. Payge Turner - Her low notes were obviously amazing, and the performance was refreshing and unique. Even her "shaky" high note sounded good to me. If I had a problem, it would be the weird phrasing in the chorus, but I believe with Payge, there's gonna be even better to come.


Good, but I felt they could've done way better

2. Jim Ranger - He's really good, but I'm not sure if he's the vocal threat people made him out to be.

3. Tamara Jade - Decent diva performance, rap singing needed work but I don't feel like she's gonna do much of that later on anyways.

4. John Holiday - His tone can get really screechy at times, I wish he would tone it down a little bit, but otherwise, this was pretty impressive.

5. Ian Flanigan - LOVED his tone, but the performance as a whole was a little too stagnant. I just wanted MORE.


Not my cup of tea, but good vocalists

6. Eli Zamora - I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Still not wowed though.

7. Joseph Soul - No complaints about the vocal, it was very clean, but pretty plain.

8. Marisa Corvo - Something about her tone irritates me. Maybe its the song choice as well idk


My cup of tea, but subpar vocals

9. Lauren Frihauf - She has lots of potential, but this performance was too raw. Enunciation needs work, high notes need work. She has a good tone, and hopefully Gwen can help her improve.

Okay premiere, was expecting more but yeah -

1 - John Holliday (9) - Now THAT was an audition, his voice is absolutely unbelievable and deserved the four chairs, i did felt he needed more control and to tone things down a bit but it was still the best audition of the night IMO

2 - Tamara Jade (9) - The AA divas never fail to impress me, and as expected, Tamara killed that song and i was completely here for it, i eat up the AA powerhouses so Tamara is obviously my kind of contestant and i can't wait to see her next performance, her rap singing needed some work tho

3 - Payge Turner (8) - Payge really surprised with the low notes and was one of the best auditions of the night, she is someone we can truly call an artist and i couldn't be more excited for what she's gonna bring to the table next, the pacing got questionable at times but she still slayed the song and i want more of that low register

4 - Joseph Soul (7) - I was surprised he didn't turn more chairs, he had good vocals and a very soulful voice! I did felt like he needs more uniqueness to stand out from the others but i'm sure Kelly can work on that with him

5 - Eli Zamora (7) - Great voice and i was surprised he turned one chair, he wasn't the best of the best but was still good and i liked him better than the average IDF user

6 - Ian Flannigan (7) - Wasn't expecting to like the boring country male but here we are, his tone was good but country is not my cup of tea and he could have definitely done better

7 - Jim Ranger (7) - His voice was better than i expected and the performance was enjoyable, but he reminds me way too much of Todd Tilghman in absolutely everything, which is why i ranked Ian righer (+ Ian's tone is cooler)

8 - Marisa Corvo (7) - Good tone and i liked the performance, but she definitely needs more work, i also felt she could have either stayed in the piano the whole time or not played it at all, good audition but needs work

9 - Lauren Frihauf (4) - Her tone was a bit irritating and her singing got kinda weird and mumbly (???) at times, i didn't like it and the song wasn't my cup of tea so it didn't help
