I have been told in past years that this competition is rigged so I chose not to attend, but this year, 2009, my interest peaked and I decided to see for myself. Needless to say, I walked away completely baffled at the results and now know for myself that something isn't quite right with this event. Of the two people eliminated tonight, one of them was a young lady, near the end, named Beth Truax, who was probably the best vocalist there, and all 4 judges praised her performance, yet she was eliminated. Please, could someone tell me how this could happen if they were truly looking for talent? Any answers would be greatly appreciated. Why wasn't the audience allowed to vote this year?

Disgruntled, it's b/c people vote more for who they know, not for who is good. I tried out this weekend to compete, just to compete, and having had experience singing in Carnegie Hall they passed me over. AND I'M FROM LIBERTY!!! They let people in who changed keys 3 x's thru one verse and finally got on key the last 3 words. Passed me up to let them in. I just don't get it. I've been an attender of Liberty Idol for 4 years, and I doubt I will ever go again. Hey, liberty idol organizers, you also need to follow your own rules. The sheets said "Tryouts from 12-3" and many people came at 2:30 to try out and the judges had already decided for the day.
I would like to at least know why the woman who couldn't carry a tune to save her life got to compete over me. There are some wretched singers every year. I guess they want that, and it's the same people very year. UGH

TO ALL THE GUYS WHO TRIED OUT AND DID NOT MAKE IT IN , SORRY. I'VE BEEN A MUSICIAN FOR 32 YEARS AND SINGER FOR 20 YEARS AS WELL AS A SONGWRITER . I WILL ADMIT THAT I DONT REALLY AGREE WITH THE JUDGES . I DONT FEEL THAT THEY HAVE THE MUSICAL EXPERIENCE TO JUDGE A COMPETITION SUCH AS THIS. BUT THAT HAPPENS WITH ALMOST EVERY BATTLE OF BANDS OR SINGING COMPETITION . THATS WHY MY GROUP REVEALED WILL NOT ENTER THESE COMPETIONS.OR AT LEAST ONE OF THE REASONS.ANOTHER REASON IS OUR ABILITY COMES FROM GOD.WE FEEL GOD WILL BLESS IT AS HE SEES FIT.WE DONT FEEL THERE IS ANY COMPETITION FOR WHAT GOD CAN DO .LET ME SUGGEST THAT IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE THAT GOOD YOU ALSO DONT NEED TO COMPETE IN AN AMATUER CONTEST SUCH AS LIBERTY IDOL.BUT NEVERTHELESS COME OUT AND HAVE FUN.THAT IS WHAT I PLAN TO DO.AND IF REVEALED GETS TO PLAY DURING A LIBERTY IDOL AS A GUEST WE WOULD BE HONORED.NOT TO COMPETE BUT TO HAVE FUN.START HAVING FUN WITH THE TALENT GOD GAVE AND DONT BE SO MAD.BESIDES WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO IN LIBERTY ON A SATURDAY NIGHT ?

I WAS AT THE LAST LIBERTY IDOL AND I FEEL AMNDA WON BECAUSE SHE WAS THE BEST.THE NIGHT SHE WON WAS THE ONLY NIGHT I WAS THERE THIS YEAR .SO I DID NOT GET TO HEAR EVERYONE .BUT SHE WAS THE BEST THAT NIGHT. I DONT BELIEVE THE COMPETITION IS RIGGED . I BELIEVE PEOPLE SAY THE SAME ABOUT AMERICAN IDOL,SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE,AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT.YOU JUST DID NOT WIN NOR DID YOUR FAVORITE. GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON . YOU WILL SLEEP BETTER AND PROBABLY SING BETTER AS WELL.
