Jill’s chitchat: Jessica James confirmed to judge talent show

Former Broadway star, Jessica James, has been confirmed as one of the judges for the talent show. After some pretty intense negotiations (okay, they weren’t that intense), Miss James agreed to join the panel of judges that already includes Mayor Cord Bennett.

The top 20 acts have been chosen and I’m pleased to announce that some of the performers attend the Lincoln Falls School for the Arts, which is owned and run by Miss James. While Miss James is proud of her students, she said that she will be fair and will not favor her students over other acts.

I’m also pleased to announce that I’ve been asked to be the third judge. It is my first time judging and I couldn’t be more excited. I hope to see all of you at the Lincoln Falls Theater on October 20 when we will crown this year’s most talented person in Lincoln Falls.

Jill’s chitchat: Does Lincoln Falls have any talent?

It’s time for the annual Lincoln Falls talent show. Does Lincoln Falls have any real talent? We will find out once again when everyone lines up to audition at the Lincoln Falls Theater on Monday at 4 pm.

For the last three years, Scarlett Flynn has won for her yodeling expertise. I’m asking, no I’m begging, please don’t allow this to happen for a fourth year. Mrs. Flynn is a wonderful yodeler, but we must have someone in this town who can sing, dance, tell a joke, or do magic. If you can do any of these things, please show up at the auditions.

The 20 best acts will be chosen from all of those who audition and will perform on Friday, October 20.

Mayor Bennett is the only confirmed judge at this time. Former Broadway star, Jessica James, is said to be in discussions. It is unknown who will fill the third seat, but I’ve heard veterinarian, Will Banks, is on the short list, as is Lincoln Falls High football coach, Eric Mason.

See you next week!

Boy Band: Four out of my top five made it

Boy Band ended last week with the members of the new band named. The architects also announced the name of the band. I don’t understand the thinking, but the new group is called In Real Life.

A couple of weeks ago, I named my top five — Jaden, Michael, Brady, Sergio, and Drew. Four out of my top five made it into In Real Life. The members of the group are Michael, Brady, Sergio, Drew, and Chance.

I’m truly stunned that Jaden didn’t make it. He had the best voice in the whole competition. Chance is okay, but doesn’t have the range that Jaden has. Luckily, Drew has killer vocals and Brady has great range. The band will need them.

I’m excited that Michael made it. I’m curious to see how they work Michael into the songs. The group’s first single has a rap in the middle of it. Will every song have a rap? Having Michael in the group makes In Real Life different from any other boy band.

As I’ve mentioned previously, Sergio can sing, but he also has a ton of charisma. He has that “it” factor. Sergio makes performing look easy.

I don’t know if this group will be a success. We’ll have to wait and see. We’ll also have to wait to see if Boy Band gets a second season.

Are you happy with the guys who were picked for In Real Life?
