Fans Cheer on Hometown Boy Scotty McCreery While Helping Storm Relief Victims

The weekly ‘American Idol‘ viewing party in Garner, N.C. turned into a massive relief effort last night. Over 700 fans, friends, family members, and neighbors stuffed the Garner Historic Auditorium to cheer on Scotty McCreery, but they didn’t come empty handed. Local grocer Lowe’s Foods organized a collection of canned goods and personal items to help families affected by the tornadoes that devastated the area last weekend.

MASTERCLASS LADY Reviews Scotty McCreery Swingin

MASTERCLASS LADY Reviews Scotty McCreery Swingin

 As usual MasterClass Lady gives her excellent critique on Scotty this week, I just really can't say enough about how much I enjoy reading her review of  Scotty's performances.  She points out such wonderful things about Scotty's voice!! <3 

SCOTT McCREERY: “Swingin’” by Lee Ann Rimes
Strengths: Scotty – the nature of this song was very low-key and, yet, it allowed you to add a sophisticated twist to your performing ability.  I found that, throughout this song, you were not only having fun, but also were moving on and off the stage like a pro, brimming with confidence and composure.
Therefore, visually, it made for great entertainment and a truly enjoyable way to begin this week’s show. The song may not have challenged you vocally as did last week’s selection, but performance-wise, this was a huge improvement 
I loved how you sang down the octave at the beginning of the second verse. I don’t think you were given enough credit for this and it showed that you have extensive breadth in your vocal range. And kudos to you for choosing  the perfect key selection to demonstrate the expansion of your singing range.   
However, in the end, the visual dimension to this performance is what impressed me. You moved with youthful ease and abandon about the stage. 
And, although the microphone was tilting back and forth once again, it added a little visual aid in the story-telling process.  I guess this is your signature, Scotty, but I still would prefer that you adopt a purely vertical alignment  in your posture.
Vocally, you were demonstrating some of the ”bel canto” spark and style this week – not as much as last because the song was more laid back in nature, but definitely there.
All in all a very entertaining and musical performance. Standing “O” from Masterclass Lady.

Critique: Scotty – because you were busy moving out and about the stage, I felt that your technical skills took a few steps backwards this week.    Your mouth was back to the horizontal position and so your voice didn’t quite have the presence and charisma I so enjoyed hearing last week.   Even though the nature of the song was relaxed and carefree, you still needed to apply a more cohesive approach to your vowels.
Therefore, the vocal line never moved forward;  it lost momentum.  I think the relaxed nature of this song really didn’t challenge you to build on the technical skills that you adopted during last week’s performance.  The song, although very entertaining, was melodically repetitive and this is always a danger zone for every singer. You need to keep the song vocally interesting, adding nuance and inflection.
The lower octave vocalizing was an excellent idea and it did help, but, you must remember not to allow your vocal sound to get lost in the lower end of your range.  You have to remember to support and articulate your lyrics so that the melodic and lyrical line  maintain clarity and momentum . 
I think your diaphragmatic muscles basically collapsed and you were using just your natural voice, which, for me wasn’t quite enough.  The diaphragm and the strong articulation skills would have added energy and momentum to your vocal cause, increasing the vocal spirit and essence of the song.
Always remember Low doesn’t mean Lazy when you sing.  Those lower notes have to cut through the instrumental background and reach the audience with strength and purpose.
Good luck next week, Scotty!
