I went and listened to everyone, I cant believe they chose the girl they did as the winner. There was another girl there that was in a leauge of her own. I dont remember her name but she sang a miranda lambert song wore jeans w/ a black and white dress shirt. Wow amazing talent she has. I was also shocked when they announced 2 and 3 place Im not sure what the judges were hearing they did write good songs just didnt perform well at all...thats my two cents.

While I was not too surprised at Rachelle Lamb being chosen as the winner, I thought Charli Davis would win. Both of these competitors used the stage well, had some charisma and both had good voices.

There were a lot of good voices in the competition but most of the performers were like sticks on stage. No eye contact with the audience, no sparkly, no personality. Appearance is also a factor in being a successful performer. Showing up for an audition in front of a crowd in old jeans and flip-flops doesn't make much of am impression.

All this said, is the Rachelle Lamb who won the competition the same Rachelle Lamb who has been singing with the Ozark Jubilee in Branson? Is the the same Rachelle Lamb who is one of the Biker Babes on the Fleming Photo web site? http://www.flemingfoto.com/Commercial/central...

Just a question but who wore old jeans and flip flops??? Also there are alot of t-shirt and jean wearing entertainers...Miranda Lambert, Gretchen Wilson, Dirks Bentley, Luke Bryant, Kenny chesney. Just to name a few also were we at the same showdown curious george??? I do not agree also went to the fleming site and that looks like her.

Let's see - the girl singer in the group "Undecided" was wearing flip flops. One of the high-school age girls was wearing patched and faded jeans. Since two of the areas that they were being judged in were marketability, and stage presence, I just think a little more attention to attire was advisable. We were in a position to see the contestants up close and saw more than we wanted to.

It was my wife who pointed these things out to me. For my part, I don't know one kind of woman's shoe from another.

The woman singer, L.C. something-or-other, was in danger of flashing the audience as her white shirt had all but disappeared on her left side, revealing a bit more breast than I'm sure she intended.

Now that is something we men notice.

Oh yes I did see the L.C. Girl button her shirt after. OK i now see who you were talking about. Some of the dresses were a little short to be up on a stage that high.

I watched the show and had a great time. The competition was great and everyone in it had great attitudes! Why must we go on here & trash people all the time. Someone had to win. I think they all did very well and rachell lamb worked the audience, dressed nice, and sang beautiful! That could b y she won. She doesnt sing for Ozark Jubilee anymore she quit and now only sings at her church. I know this cause i got to talk to her at the showdown.
Wow

I thought the show was awesome. I was one of the singers and i had a great time. winner or loser it was a good time. The rules of the site r to stay polite and it looks to me like alot of people have a hard time doing that. Dont we understand that words do hurt other people and y would we want to say bad things about them. When i get into situations like this where some people do wanna be hateful it makes me think of the song "One day at a time sweet Jesus" Thats all we can do is be humble and take it one day at a time.

My comments were not meant to be mean spirited nor were they directed at you as a person. I applaud all of you (and we did, loudly) for having the courage to get up in front of a crowd and perform. However, when you make a choice to present yourself to the public, then you open yourself up to a review of your performance. I'm not going to lie and say you were all equally talented and/or entertaining. It just isn't the case.

I also know that nerves can do wretched things to some people. It was easy to separate those who had seldom performed in public from those who had been doing it for years. Rachelle Lamb is a professional performer. Charli Davis is a professional performer. Maybe the Colgate Challenge should be divided into to groups - one for amateurs and the other for professionals?

The girl in the band was NOT wearing flip flops!!! She had the cutest, HOTTEST pair of gold and black stilettos on. Damn, were you high?!?! You are just trying to give it a bad name. Anyone who REALLY went, saw the majority of performers looking uite spiffy and sharp. I do AGREE that the one chick should have buttoned up those big puppies better, though! That part was true! I swear the girl in the band, had on mile-high, sassy stilettos,too. You may wanna get your eyesight or wifey's checked!:)Furthermore, I hate country music, but was really impressed with the talent.

Really??? Professional Performers...Funny! LMFAO maybe you should go back and watch the video at www.threeriversdailynews.com . When you listen notice the boos when they announce the winner. The girl in undecided was wearing flip flops but they were cute not just some junk shoes. She walked by me and I saw them. If you have an issue with the way they were dressed maybe you should go on youtube and look at other performers. Also nothing about that green dress with flowers on it said country. You should have been a stylist if you have such an issue with this. You really dont know talent do you?

And like so many on this forum, you CANNOT READ. I never mentioned the girl in the band. My reference was to the young lady in the group (of two, plus an unintroduced bongo player) called Undecided.

Get a grip.

We were there and we saw who was doing the booing. It was the friends and family of those who did not win. If this is West Plains idea of good sportsmanship, I feel sorry for all of us.

I agree! I went to hear musicians and singers......not to critique their style or lack there of! Hell, the Red Hot Chile Peppers use to perform naked, all but the tube socks worn on their weiners! They are a great band and the tube socks sure didn't hurt their image or make them play bad!! Lol!
