Mark Labriola, Danelle Hays and Tori Kelly, Pre-Idol Music

Fugitive and funny guy, Mark Labriola was a member of the now-defunct Christian band, Foolish things. Check out some of the band’s tunes on their MySpace. Also, the band made a music video for their single, “Escape to Freedom” HERE.

Vulnerable rocker, Danelle Hays sings a song called “Phenomenal Woman” that seems to go on and on and on, but get past the song, and you can hear she’s got vocals than she displayed on Idol last night. Check it out HERE.

And 16 year-old Tori Kelly, the girl with the young sister who came into the judges room bearing gifts (hand made drawings) has a you tube channel HERE. She performs Owl City’s “Fireflies”, “R U Ready“, a live version of Beyonce’s “Halo”, and Paramour’s “The Only Exception”. Wow. She’s good! Again, better than her audition.  More to explore My Space, Twitter, Ustream.

Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. I love R U Ready and its video (I saw it earlier).

    Very creative. Tory is very good!

  2. I find it easier to listen and judge a voice if I know the song. This is Danelle singing “Desperado”. I like her voice. Interested to see how she makes out.

  3. Danelle might not be malleable enough for the Idol package!
    She is a Masterclass artist and a good singer. Keep my fingers
    crossed that she will get some exposure. Lots of talent here!
