I've heard there are other wolves here, different types. I am trying to find out exactly how many different types of us are here.

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: Week 6, Ep2


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
After the usual opening, video segments were played showing each of the remaining contestants paths to this point so far. From their auditions to the judges' first reactions to them, to how they performed this week.

Eventually, all five performers were brought out onstage, with Ben walking out to address the fans.

"Each week, we're consistently getting more and more votes than we did even last season... and this week was no exception. One thing that was a bit different though... we had the closest voting race we've EVER had this week. Only 1 few hundred votes separated the highest vote-getter from the lowest. All of you should be incredibly proud of yourselves, and of the impression you made on our audience and judges."

"Unfortunately... one of you must be eliminated regardless. And this week... the performer going home will be... Neveah Dean-Ramirez."

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: Week 6, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
The show kicked off with highlights of last week's duets, the unprecedented quality of each performance, and clips of the judges being blown away by all six singers.

A clip was shown of Rachel Berry being eliminated, complete with her now-former "arch-nemesis" Rachelle Martin-Bale giving her a standing ovation after her name was called.

Benjamin Bale then walked out to begin the live broadcast, giving the audience a quick rundown of the five performers that remained, before introducing each of the judges. Like Rachelle had said on the network earlier in the day, she indeed was in celebratory mode, her section of the table covered in a Terrible Towel, a Steelers pennant, and a black-and-gold End Zone banner, advertising both of it's locations. And of course, Rachelle herself was wearing black-and-gold spandex leggings with a Chase Claypool jersey and a Steelers cap on her head, giving a cheesy double thumbs-up to the camera as it passed her.

Beginning with a recap of the week's performances, along with the judges' critiques and general reactions, the fans were treated to a surprise performance by Kaitlin Crowe, who sat at a grand piano to perform a solo rendition of Eternal Embrace's "Fire & Ice".

After the performance, Ben once more gathered all the performers onstage to announce this week's elimination... which was Maya Matlin.

Immediately, Kaitlin Crowe walked back out onto the stage, hugging her friend and newest bandmate, whispering to her how proud she is of her.

After a video recap of Week 1, including the reactions of the two contestants that were eliminated and a few of the judges' opinions of the remaining contestants, a spotlight shone on Benjamin Bale, standing again in the center of the stage.

After introducing himself, and giving a quick explanation of the show and the prize, he took a moment to introduce each of the four judges, before turning the stage over to this week's performers...

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: WEEK 1, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic


Universal Idol opened with a huge pyro display, complete with oversized video walls showing photos and bios of all the contestants, with a voiceover welcoming all viewers in attendance and watching at home.

The camera finally panned over to Benjamin Bale, wearing dress jeans and a black suitcoat over a vintage Van Halen "5150" tee. 

"Hello everyone, and welcome to Season 2 of Universal Idol! Two contestants will be eliminated each of the first two weeks, with one elimination per week afterwards, until we are left with one winner, who will receive a guaranteed recording contract with Full Moon Entertainment and promoted throughout seven planets."

He pointed to the video wall, where pictures of each perform were shown.

"This year, we bring to you:

Alex Manes!
Craig Manning!
Audrey Rose!
Kevin Van Warren!
Ally!
Maya Matlin!
Olive Penderghast!
Queen Barb!
Rachel Berry!
Neveah Dean-Ramirez!
Spencer Quill!
Tilde Tyler!

And of course, the show couldn't be complete without our panel of judges...

Returning from last season, she's the vocalist of A Woman Scorned, an sctress, and the owner of The End Zone... Full Moon artist Rachelle Martin-Bale!

Also returning from last season, the woman some have called the heart and compassion of the show, Full Moon recording artist Meredith Delany!

New to the program this season, someone who is no stranger to knowing how to entertain, actor Kyle Sutherland!

And finally, also new this season, a woman as whip-smart and entertaining as she is beautiful, head bartender at The End Zone and longtime associate of Full Moon Entertainment, Kayla Barnes!"

After the introduction of each of the four judges, the rules were then explained to the viewers:

Each contestant will sing one song of their choosing on the first episode of the week. During each performance, a number would be shown on-screen for viewers to send a text to in order to vote for that performer. After taking a day off to compile the votes, the second episode would then announce the two performers with the lowest vote totals. Those two will be eliminated from the competition.

((OOC: Each week, the starter post will go up on Sunday. The contestants will have until Tuesday at 5pm EST to get their performances posted. Not posting a performance will be an automatic elimination, and the performance will hand-waved. The judes will then have until Thursday evening at 8pm EST to get their critiques done, at which time the eliminations will be announced via a new post. ))

We've all been through a lot recently. Loss, sadness, fear... a few years back, I had sunk into a horrible depression. The worst I've ever felt. And the thing that finally helped bring me out of it was a voice. The most ethereal, beautiful voice I've ever heard.

And now, in the hopes that her voice will bring joy to you all, just as it did to me, I bring you my pride and joy as a businessman, Sabra Hills.

1. Lights
2. Love Me Like You Do
3. Burn
4. On My Mind
5. Power

Today is an incredibly sad day for me. Growing up, I've always loved rock and metal music, and the main reason for that was the man who was my musical idol from the first time I heard him play "Eruption": Eddie Van Halen.

As my wife will tell you, we've literally spent entire evenings passionately debating which version of Van Halen (the David Lee Roth era or the Sammy Hagar era) was better, but regardless of which I loved more (Hagar, thank you very much), Van Halen was, is, and always will be a huge part of my life.

Today, it was announced that Eddie Van Halen passed away after a long battle with throat cancer. And for the first time in my life, the death of someone I've never met brought me to tears.

Tonight, I'm going to gather a few of Full Moon Entertainment's most talented musicians at Ryze, to jam on some of my favorite Van Halen songs and pay tribute to a fallen rock god.

Hello again, everyone.

I hope, sincerely, that everyone is coping better each day with their recent losses.

That said, as I stated in my last post, I've purchased Echidna Records from Queen Beatrice, and now hold the contracts of every artist signed to that label, as well as to Full Moon Entertainment.

If you are currently an Echidna artist, and you wish to transition to Full Moon, just let me know. If you prefer to be released entirely from your contract, that option is also available.

As of right now, these are the artists we currently have signed to Full Moon Entertainment:

Jeremy Lewis
Eternal Embrace
A Woman Scorned
Bad Reputation
Penelope Park
Van Warren
Scarlet Gospel
Sabra Hills
Devilock

Hello, sir. So I know that we don't know each other well, but I've been avoiding you ever since... "the incident". I don't want to anymore. I'm not saying that we should be friends or anything, but I would at least like to be civil with you. Where I'm not angry with you, I'm not exactly happy with being basically used as a pawn in a situation where I'm sure you didn't think that Rachelle was going to be that upset with you.


[Kat]
I see you.

Sometimes... MOST of the time... it's easier to just make yourself be a dick so you don't have to worry about things like feelings or regrets.

But that's the bitch way. I'm better than that and it's about damn time I realize it.

I would like to reply to Rachelle Martin-Bale's public statement about me with one of my own.

I'm sorry. It's as simple as that. Rachelle has indeed been one of our closest friends and staunchest supporters, and what I did was inexcusable. In search of controversy and ratings, I hurt someone my wife and myself both care greatly about.

I support her departure from Full Moon Entertainment entirely, and hope that one day, I can repair the trust that I broke.

That being said, I need to step back and take a closer look at myself. I will immediately be removing myself from the Universal Idol broadcasts, and Skylar will be taking my place as host.

I also wish to extend an olive branch to Queen Shiklah, and hope that we may continue to work together in the future, in a rivalry more friendly than underhanded.

I'm very glad that my employers have agreed to get me a private tutor so I can finish school. I don't think I could handle public school. I've only ever gone to private.

[Ben and Skylar]

I know you've only just hired me on but I wanted to know if there anything I can do to make things easier for you at home? I see that things are a little insense right now.

UNIVERSAL IDOL - WEEK 4 - ELIMINATIONS


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
Once the opening of the show concluded, the announcer reminded everyone that this week was Duets Week, just before a short montage video was shown, highlighting each of the four duets, and accompanied by a few of the judges' comments.

Greeting the crowd in his typical, friendly-yet-smarmy manner, Ben took the stage to announce that next week would be Mentor's Week, where each of the remaining competitors would have to work with a mentor from Full Moon Entertainment, who would help them craft a performance via creative teamwork.

The crowd held it's collective breath when the moment came to announce the eliminations... each of the remaining eight singers had truly gained a fanbase by this time, and no matter who went, it was going to seem shocking.

Even knowing that, the shock and gasping of the audience was evident when it was announced that this week, Noah Guerin and Ellis Shepherd had been eliminated.

((OOC: If any of the judges want to show their reactions to the eliminations, just leave comments to this post. The pairings for the mentor/performer scenes are:

1. Kaitlin Crowe mentoring Penny
2. Ginny Callaway mentoring Sophia
3. Lucy Van Warren mentoring Jeremy
4. Meredith Delany mentoring Mary Jane
5. Rachelle Martin-Bale mentoring Lita
6. Ginny Callaway mentoring Enid

So, be sure to talk to your mentor's player, and have fun planning out the performance! There will be two eliminations, and we're extending the deadline for posting performances until Sunday night once again, to give everyone enough time to get with the mentors' players and write something together. The starter post for that show will go up tomorrow.))

Good evening, all.

As promised, here are the official details for the beginning of Universal Idol.

As previously stated, the winner is guaranteed a recording contract with Full Moon Entertainment, and will be promoted throughout (currently) 5 planets. This is subject to expand.

The competition will begin with 15 singers.

At the end of the first week... the five with the fewest amount of votes are sent home.

The following two weeks, the two with the least votes will be sent home.

From that point on, each week the one contestant with the least amount of votes will be sent home, until two remain. They will then compete in the finals.

There will be four judges, that will critique each performance. Those judges will be singer/actress Rachelle Martin-Bale, club owner Prudence Melinda Halliwell, former musician Rupert Giles, and singer/guitarist/songwriter Meredith Delany.

Now, without further ado, here is the list of contestants for the inaugural edition of Universal Idol:

Penny St. Claire
Enid Rhee
Ellis Shepherd
Adilyn Bellefleur
Marcus The Diabetic Gladiator Centaur Werewolf With A Symbiote and Robot Legs
Ash Kowalski
Lita Todd
Noah Guerin
Ben Braeden
Jeremy Lewis
Mary Jane Watson
Jack Damon
Beth Greene
Brian Pritchard
Jolene Kinney

The live premiere will be next Tuesday, July 9th at 8pm, with a results show the next night each week.

Good luck to everyone!

We've had a lot of crazy shit going down around here lately... glad to say it's mostly over.

Now it's time for something fun.

If this is gonna be our new home, we need to find ways to bolster the economy. I see a lot of businesses popping up here, and that's good. But we need something that's gonna really bring in the dollars. What better than homegrown celebrities, that people will want to come from other worlds just to see?

I've already managed to network with certain people down on earth (don't ask. Trust me) and gotten access to any funding I request. In my world? I ran a company called Full Moon Entertainment. We represented everything from bands, to actors, to models.

I want to restart that here. We already have a few of our biggest stars from home here (Kaitlin Crowe and Rachelle Martin-Bale), along with a few of our other more artists (my wife Skylar, Meredith Delany, Sabra Hills).

So here's where you all come in.

Back home (not sure if it's a thing here or not) we have shows called American Idol and The Voice. They're talent competitions for singers. I'm going to produce something like that here. I want to find the next big star/stars and have you all help me do it.

Tell me... who wants to be a star?

Should I be freaked out? I should be freaked out, huh.

Sorry, can't do it. This place is the shit. I see that my wife and my favorite cousin are both here, so I've nothing to be remotely upset about. Also? Fair warning: if any Autobots ever turn up here, I will immediately revert to emotionally 10 years old.

Skylar, baby? You seeing this?
