I’ve been talking to my fans about the show’s return over the last couple of days and the responses have been polarizing.Half of them are excited and the other half say, “Let it be — it made its mark.” I’m somewhere in the middle.I still watched because the talent level on some of the seasons was undeniable, but then it started revolving around the judges and wasn’t so much about the talent anymore.That’s when I gave up watching and only would tune in from the top 8 or so, on.Dinah is a former rocker who still sings and plays guitar He is an only child and is of Welsh, German and Irish descent.He attended Kenmore Junior High and later Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, Washington.He made connections with various musicians by performing regularly in many venues in Seattle such as Nectar Lounge in Fremont, Sea Monster Lounge, Lo-Fi Performance Gallery, Jet Deck in Everett (now in Mill Creek) and hosted shows like The Digital Lounge shows at To ST.

This show gave me an amazing opportunity to share my craft at a time when the world didn’t really know what beatboxing was, so I’m extremely grateful for that limelight.
The journey had its ups and downs, but I grew in every way imaginable and the aftermath was nothing short of amazing for my career. I personally thought that when Simon Cowell left after Season 8, the show was done.
In November 2007, Jordin Sparks released her debut studio self titled album via Jive Records.
