That 10-year old's speaking voice even sounded much older than 10. It didn't take long for me to remember that I HATE that Howie will play the stupid 'I'm not hitting my X' game just to be annoying (it works). Add me to the list of those that didn't care for the orchestra/chorus thing. Did they really just go through auditions for three cities in one night? That'll move things along nicely! Or is every week going to be portions from some of the same cities? Anywho, during the intro video for Marty Brown, I kept thinking, "Is that the same Marty Brown???" Common enough name that it may not have been, but it seems it really was the guy I was thinking of - wikipedia indicates he released four albums between 1991-1996. I have a copy of his second album, "Wild Kentucky Skies". Not a main stream success, but I liked him quite a bit.
