Checked out the season premiere of "Nashville Star" last night. Some good, some bad, some I'll have to wait and see, and one gone. Not gone, and definitely worth attention, is Melissa Lawson, below.
She did "Something To Talk About." Good voice, charisma, terrific stage presence. I know that every singer of any experience should have one fabulous performance in him/her/them to get the show going, but Lawson stood out last night.
And why, you may ask, was I watching "Nashville Star"? Well, I've been known to listen to some country here and there. Also because Laura Fedor and Sophie Zalokar, who went decently old-school with "Stand By Your Man" and got considerable praise from the judges, are from Willoughby, OH. Here's a photo of them last night:
