Episode Recap; We Have a Winner!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays everybody! My Christmas gift to you is that you can now leave your house on a Friday night. Just kidding. I’m looking forward to going out to eat with my wife again, but at the same time I’m really going to miss this show. Admittedly the show was not progressing very well near the end, but it was still entertaining. I guess could talk about the cheesy Christmas medley featuring many of bands that got cut this season or I could talk about how the other band members in Northmont must feel to once again essentially be told, “you suck” while the singer gets praised. Then again, I could talk about The Likes of You opening the show with the best song I’ve heard in the past three weeks or the weird editing that put Sheila E. saying “Thank you, goodnight” in the middle of the show. Maybe even the fact that Jesus got a heck of a lot of props from Ashley’s wife or the awkward way of telling Denver and the Mile High Or...  Read Full Article

Guest Columnist Ashley Clark Sounds Off on His Next Great American Band Win

When we made the finals of The Next Great American Band, I was in shock, because our goal was to make the top five. When we made the top four, I was like, "No way!" Then we made the top three and we were like, "It can't get any better than this." But to win... I just can't believe it! All I remember is my legs giving out when they said, "The Clark Brothers." All of the stress and the months away from home and the work just hit me at once and I fell down, you know? This was our first gig playing as a three-piece. We'd only played in the living room at the house before. Honestly, we sent in the video on the very last day and didn't think much of it. Next thing you know, we were flying out to Vegas to play for the judges. So when we won, it was crazy. We were freaking out, which is pretty much why I fell to the floor. We've always wanted to play together, but we didn't have time. We read more

Top 3 Perform

We’re almost there friends! Next week is the finale and we now have three bands to choose from. I believe Dominic Bowden said that there were 3,000,000 votes last week. At least I think that’s what he said. I had to go get some Q-tips and clean out my ears after that, as I swore he said that a show that averages less than 3 million viewers each week got more votes than people watching. I suppose it’s possible, but if he’s telling the truth I will um…I will buy the Dot Dot Dot CD when it comes out. This week we have to do some serious predicting as well. The website I visit to follow the off-season baseball moves, always gives predictions on where a player will sign, how much money they will get and what their chances are to be worth the money. So I thought it might be fun to do something like that this week. Denver and The Mile High Orchestra“September” by Earth, Wind & Fire should have been perfect for them to showcase their exciting side and ... read more

Message for the Final Four: Change Is Good!

Yesterday, I celebrated my birthday on set so that was a nice distraction. John and Dicko got me a cake and the audience started singing "Happy Birthday" to me before they even brought it out. It was overwhelming and kind of caught me off guard but it was very sweet!There are four bands left and each one had to learn three songs this week. They had to pick their favorite original song, a song picked by the producers, and a song picked by us judges.I chose four songs from four different artists for The Clarke Brothers because I wanted to give them different options but, at the same time, something they could have fun with. Each judge chose a song for a different band. There were a lot of great moments but I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll just say the top three blew me away.I really hope this whole experience has been enlightening for them. I remember the Old #7s saying, “We never would have thought we’d be playing different types of music from these arti... read more

Top Four Perform

So how many of you were like me tonight and turned on the TV at the normal time, only to see Wayne Brady instead of kids playing metal? OK, so I admit it’s a little sad that I work at TV Guide and I didn’t know the timeslot moved, but I think it’s understandable that I was a little thrown off. I mean, sure, I suppose Fox thinks moving it to 9 pm near the end of the show will get more viewers — but on a Friday? Actually, I expect the ratings to be lower. The later you move it on a Friday night, the more people have already went out to start their weekend.That doesn’t really matter though. What matters is this question I’m about to pose to you. What the heck show am I watching? Seriously, am I watching a different show than the voting public? A different show than the judges? I watch American Idol every season and I can usually predict that pretty well. I’ve watched and blogged Rockstar and was able to do a pretty good job figuring out who was going ... read more
