Groups had blended vocal sounds that were so good together that The Architects were “blown away”. In following weeks, The Architects surveyed the competitors as they began various training rounds. The 18 moving forward were divided into groups of 6, and launched into heavy coaching sessions with industry greats. Tim Davis, Vocal Producer did voice lessons and sectionals. Adam Blackstone, Music Director, taught the groups musical ethics. Napoleon and Tabitha, along with Sagiv, taught movement and choreography. Make-up artists, hair dressers, wardrobe coordinators and more, took on the gradual process of forming each boy into a marketable package.
Adam Blackstone introduced the groups to rehearsals with a live back-up band. He taught them to experiment during rehearsals, but not in performance. He taught them to listen, to work as a unit, and to maintain a professional musical demeanor. His professional ethics set the bar high for the emerging talents. He seriously commented, “Don’t let your brothers down by showing the audience that you made a mistake.” He provided the show’s next lesson:
“Every performer has a role in the band. Each guy must know his role.”
