Alison Porter the woman who played Curly Sue when she was a child is a favorite



I'm glad someone started this, I was thinking of it. Alisan, Hannah, Brian, and Mary Sarah are my current favorites right now. Angie, Peyton, Kristen and Natalie are interesting too.

Brian




Mary




I do think Mary and Alisan are on a different level. We've really got the possibility of an incredible season.
In comparison with the AI contestant of this year,I think The Voice are in another
level IMHO RolleyesRolleyesRolleyesRolleyes
Oh god, it's not even close.

I do really like Avalon, but I know better on Idol. That's not lasting long.
Cristina's talent and voice

I'm really feeling this one.... lots of empathy exuding.

Great voices and execution in all the links people have shared.

I'm burnt out on singing shows lately but might start ducking in next week for the talented aspirants
I saw her cover of "Cry Baby" years ago..(Like when Allison Iraheta sang it, I went looking for all of the covers of it..)

She's really outstanding.







Quote:Porter was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. She is Jewish;[1] her maternal grandmother, whose father-in-law Joseph Klein was a prominent Worcester rabbi, ran the Charlotte Klein Dance Center in Worcester.[2] Porter's mother, Laura Klein, was a dance coach for Diane Klimaszewski & Elaine Klimaszewski, who appeared on Star Search in 1987, in the junior vocalist category, before they became better known as the Coors Light Twins. Her father, Ric Porter, was co-founder, lead singer, and songwriter of the Worcester Band Zonkaraz.[3] While in Los Angeles for the twins' appearance on the show, the show's producer heard Porter singing in the hotel lobby and had her on the very next episode. Alisan has been singing and performing since the age of three; at the age of five, she became the youngest Star Search participant ever to win the competition.

As an actress, she is known for her lead role as Curly Sue in the 1991 movie Curly Sue starring Jim Belushi. She costarred with Tim Curry in an introduction scene of an awards ceremony where both of them "jumped" out of a movie screen and into real life through special effects.

Porter continued acting in high school in Westport, Connecticut, where she joined a theatre group and participated in various shows. When she was eighteen, she moved to New York to audition for Broadway shows. She was cast as Urleen in the show Footloose.

Porter is based in Los Angeles, where she has been working on her music career. During this time she starred as Miriam in the smash The Ten Commandments: The Musical at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles alongside Val Kilmer and Adam Lambert and Broadway star Lauren Kennedy. In 2003, the band The Raz was formed, with Porter as the vocalist and main songwriter. The Raz split up in 2004. In March 2005, she announced the birth of her new band, The Alisan Porter Project. During 2006, she performed in the 2006 revival of A Chorus Line as Bebe Bensonheimer at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City.

On October 9, 2009, Porter's independent debut self-titled album was released. Porter's friend Scarlett Cherry wrote and produced the album.

Damn good top 4 for the finale. I would have preferred Bryan, Shalyah, or Mary over Adam..but he's awful good himself.
