Wow that was truly an amazing vocal. The falsetto was perfect and effortless. Man when Matt is not nervous he is a damn good vocalist! Loved it! That USA guy was completely out of his mind! Shocked

LA Times Review...

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/americanidoltracker/2009/07/the-tour-opens-live-from-portland.html#more


Quote :
Matt Giraud opened with perhaps the most rousing number of the first half - Otis Redding's Hard to Handle. The funniest, most outgoing of all the Idol's his set managed to showcase his charming persona much more clearly than it ever was during the season.


Quote :
Danny and Matt ran up and down the line slapping hands, laughing like the young people they are, celebrating their public debut.

I'm at work and can't access youtube..


Aughhhhh!!!!!!!!

But thanks for posting the links! It gives me something to look forward to!

Richard Rushfield has really become a Matt fan. He was kinda cool about him during the season, IIRC. I love to see Matt's charm working on people, especially the press.

When Elliott released his first CD, he did a massive radio tour, and won over DJs all over the country. I have always thought that helped his song get lots of play. Maybe that's naive in this day and age of corporate media bloat, but I wanna believe that it helps.

Quote :
The Idol groove continued with a charismatic Matt Giraud, who got the crowd moving with his piano-pounding version of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” then paid tribute to another soul great with an outstanding “Georgia on My Mind,” giving his elastic voice the full workout, from raspy growl to falsetto.

Ok can I be honest? I absolutely loved HTH and Georgia...seriously amazing and flawless but I think he made a mistake choosing You Found Me. I'm sorry but I wasn't loving it. The ending was amazing but the rest was kind of meh!

Let me explain why. IMO Matt is trying to hard to sing like Issac Slade. The problem with this is, Matt has a million times better vocals than Issac (and this is coming from a huge Fray fan). So in a sense he is dumbing his voice down. If he has to sing You Found Me he should sing it in his natural voice. No more fake growling and slurring the words like Issac. When he recorded it he sounded amazing because he was singing like Matt but last night he wasn't.

OMG! OMG! OMG! Matt G.= HOTTTT guy!!! I loved his Hard to Handle song and performance...freakin AWESOME!! I liked his Georgia too...the You Found Me was good but I think that song is just a tricky song to do "in concert"...he sounds wonderful on the studio version and I just think its hard to get that good of results in a live concert...Oh and I take back what i said about his hair cut..I was actually kinda diggin it! Very Happy I think he just looked and sounded amazing..I LOVE HIM, I LOVE HIM, I LOVE HIM!! cheers Razz


Oh and you guys should have seen me last night..I don't have a PC at home right now, just my lil ole blackberry, so here I was up till 1:30 am , 2:00 am going crazyyyy on my blackberry..I love Twitter though..that one girl Idoltourbenches was Amazing herself!! She was CRACKIN ME UP and she's the one who kept posting the most pics and her commentary was tooo funny!! Did anyone else read her stuff??..At one point she said, "The crowd is going crazy for Danny, please explain???" hahaha Razz Razz She is also a big Matty fan so I loved her!

OH and one more thing..that STUPID USATODAY guy needs his brain checked seriously!! dude you are sooo wrong on every level..matt was great!!! geek

I was just going the post that very phrase!! I thought he had some really nice moments in YFM - but his voice was much, much better in the other two songs. It was like he was trying to hard to sing it like the original, putting a strain on his voice - and he actually (sorry!)was pitchy during the first 10-20 sec. - too bad. But his falsetto was spot on again Very Happy

Exactly, Cecilie. The first few bars were not in tune and I think that set the tone for most of the song. Once he got up from the piano though he turned it around. The falsetto was amazing throughout his whole set. I think if he just sings it naturally with vulnerability rather than anger he will sound much better. Just my opinion.

I wonder if he got a little psyched out about singing You found me, because it's surely a risky choice in many people's eyes. I will have to watch a few more shows before I can say anything about it, hopefully he'll relax a bit more.

Hey Jenna..

did I miss something? I saw that pic of Matt and Anoop standing on the stage together in their suits...didn't they sing a duet together? and if so do we have a video of it yet? Idoltourbenches was talking about how both of them looked so hot up there together??

cheers

Just wanted to say thanks so much for all these videos! I am so happy!
This is like information Matt overload. I really don't have much time during the day to comment but Matt really killed it last night.

I just saw all three videos and the first two songs were absolutely amazing. His vocals were spot on. And his piano playing was incredible.

I love "You Found Me" but Jenna I agree 100% with you.
I just think it is a tricky song to sing live.. Matt is trying to imitate Isaac's tone a bit I guess, he should do it Matt way.

I hope he considers this for next time, someone got to suggest that to him. Other than that he ended on a high note.

I just wish that instead of YFM he should have chosen "Chariot" from Gavin. It's just a more melodic song to sing along too. I saw him sing that song live and it was really really good.

Oh well.There's no changes right now so all he needs to do is to make YFM more him and he will be OK.

I really think he will get a record deal after the tour guys! Lots of positive comments.
He should be able to record music. I am so happy for him. cheers
