AI Semis Week 1 Dress Rehearsal, Next Week’s shows Rescheduled Plus YOU could be our Blog Reporter!

2nd Update:   Carrie B has volunteered to be a dress rehearsal Blog Reporter.   Thank you Carrie B! She’s got experience–last year she accompanied Caffiend on quite a few dress rehearsals, she did a few alone, too.   So, really, it’s more like “welcome back Carrie B” *smiles*!

She can’t go tomorrow, however. So, if any of you are going to tomorrow’s dress rehearsal, contact me HERE.

Update: I’m hearing that tomorrow night’s show will be LIVE.

Dress rehearsal call time at 12:30 PST. tomorrow, with the live show beginning at 5 pm, presumably.

Typically, the first performance show of the season is taped live for broadcast, to work out the kinks.   The producers must be feeling very confident, or they’re trying to thwart spoilers…

Next week’s shows will be shifted 1 day to accommodate President Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday.   The performance show will air   Wednesday 8/7 pm and the results show, Thursday, 8/7 pm.

One more thing:   The lovely Caffiend acted as blog reporter last season, texting back song spoilers after nearly every dress rehearsal.   It was a heroic effort, and I thank her for it.

That was so much fun, I’m looking to do it again.   Caffiend is unavailable, so I’m gonna need some NEW blog reporters, willing to report song spoilers.

Folks planning to attend dress rehearsals this season, PLEASE CONTACT ME at mjsbigblog at Or HERE. Let’s get it together this Season 8!

And if you’ve got any behind-the-scenes gossip, song spoilers, what-have-you, CONTACT ME.   I promise total anonymity.
