music scENE When that blustery night in February


rolls around, the contestants pocket their stage fright and self doubt in exchange for excitement and positive energy.


“I tell them all that my heart


beats outside of my body during the performance,” Feldman said. “Watching them and being so proud when they all do a great job. People who go to it always tell me afterward that they can’t believe how professional it was.”


Winning or losing plays a secondary


role to the experience of Door County Idol, where each contestant gains con- fi dence and grows as a performer. Each person leaves having entertained the 750 people in the seats of the auditorium.


Ciesar said, “I learned that if you re-


ally have a goal and put focus and de- termination into achieving it you can do anything. I feel like everyone’s con- fi dence was lifted. Just to be up there on stage and have everyone cheering for you and really giving it your all was a great experience for everybody.”


In the last couple of years the Door


County Idol contestants have joined together to perform one song as an en- semble. In keeping with the real-life af- fection the 2010 contestants had for one another, they sang Ingrid Michaelson’s, “Everybody.”


“Idol gives kids an opportunity to


put themselves out there and have an immense amount of community sup- port. It’s ok to forget words...they get the chance to fail and have a safety net. In the adult world you don’t really have that,” Feldman said.


“It gave me more of a picture of how


being a professional performer would be,” Hietpas said. Perhaps a more real- istic picture than seen on TV or on the big screen.
