One of the standouts includes a female singer who kicked off the night. Crystal Alicea doesn't have professional performing experience. But despite her experience coming from karaoke, she has a really good voice. Listening to her, I felt a connection between her, her music, the song and her backstory. Then there's a singer like Effie Passero, who sang an original song at the piano. She has a really big voice -- and I can definitely see her commanding a stage.
Anyway, judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie are still in the early stages of scouring the country for talented singers. The only downside to night two is that the episode was stuffed with a lot more average singers who received golden tickets. Having said that, there were still some standouts that must be mentioned. During night two of the season 16 auditions, it turns out that the two best auditions of the night came from the men.
The season 16 premiere, which saw 10.3 million viewers tuning in, featured a lot of talented singers. Some of the standouts include Catie Turner, Run Bultongez, Maddie Poppe, Harper Grace, Alyssa Raghu and Dennis Lorenzo. For Catie Turner, what really stood out to me was how intriguing of a songwriter she is. She's obviously got a nice voice and her hyper personality won't be forgotten anytime soon.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
