The Blairmore Legion was at capacity on Saturday, February 25th, as 14 local and area singers competed in the first round of Crowsnest Pass Idol.
Singers took turns performing two songs each, with styles ranging from country to indie rock to adult contemporary and even a performer’s own original song.
New faces and returning contestants from last year sang and played to an enthusiastic crowd after being informed by judges Darryl Ferguson, Deserie Michalsky and Michelle Dobek-Koinberg that no one would be eliminated during the first round of performances.
Glenwood resident Amber Turner started things off with a rendition of Shania Twain’s “From This Moment”, followed by returning contestants Kristin Sciarra, Jon Bergman, Jeff Chambers, Michael Blaize (last year’s 3rd place winner), and fresh faces Paul O’Neill, Shannon Riviere, Jamie Fisher, Kyle Rains, Tracy Fournier, Steve Schafer, Katherine Smith, Carly Perkin and Justin Whelan stepping up to the microphone.
Chambers, Blaize, O’Neill, Rains, Perkin and Whelan each accompanied their vocal performances by playing guitar.
Chambers threw his hat into the ring by performing an original song he performed last year which, after he missed a note and swore in frustration, resulted in his elimination from the competition.

“This song was my downfall last year, so I thought I’d start things off by trying to tame the beast,” Chambers joked.
Judges applauded the performance and welcomed Chambers back to the competition.
Other notable performances included those of newcomers Reviere and Perkin, who sang emotional and beautiful renditions of Sarah Maclaughlin’s “Angel” and Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”, respectively, earning them accolades from the judges and the audience.
Returning contestant Sciarra sang through a sore throat and cold with her versions of Taylor Swift’s “White Horse” and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man”, on which judges commended her.
All of the contestants moved on to the next round of competition this past Saturday, March 3rd, the results of which were not available at press time.
Remaining contestants will go on to perform on March 10th and 17th, leading up to the finale on March 24th.
Tickets for each of the remaining shows are available at Sears and the Blairmore Legion.
