The VanderVault staff have written an article about AGT Champions, its fairly complicated set of rules, how the shows are filmed completely differently than the regular AGT season, it’s ratings and the limited financial award for the winner.

The VanderVault Staff have written an interesting essay regarding the root causes of a “viral” pop music success when artists are transported from the ranks of a “working artists” to “stars” and beyond.

The article provides a very sober view of Grace’s career thus far, what levels of success may soon be coming and what factors may have been hindering her so far but may soon be behind her.
To get us warmed up for the next four days of Grace touring with Florence + the Machine the VanderVault Staff have put together a glossary of singing terms/techniques, and provided examples of Grace’s use of them.

Today’s editorial, a group effort by the VanderVault Staff, is a two-parter that explores just how much of an influence Grace’s AGT “Judges Audition” had on her win of the show, and how much hype was generated because of it for the first year, and more, of her career.
Today’s editorial compares Simon Cowell’s 10 general rules to follow to successfully win a talent competition (written back in 2002) and thrive post-win. It’s a nostalgic look back at the early days of such shows and to see how many of the “rules” Grace nailed in her journey, and win, on AGT.
