Moodagent Divulges How American Idol Top 11 Interpret Billboard No. 1 Hits


As Idol lineup is reduced to top 10, mobile app sees through glitz and glam of popular show, viewer votes and hypercritical Simon Cowell, to expose individuality of each performance


[USPRwire, Sat Mar 27 2010] Moodagent, the free music playlisting application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, illustrates how the 11 American Idol contestants succeeded this week in making Billboard No. 1 Hits “their own”. The app visually demonstrates how each contestant modified a Billboard No. 1 hit in terms of mood and tempo, and differences in the playlists generated by the original and the Idol’s version of each song. Anyone can do a comparison of different song covers using Moodagent, just by adding the songs to their personal music collection.

Moodagent song characteristics include moods, genres, sub-genres, styles, tempo/beat, instrumentation and production features. All of this information is simplified into five touch screen sliders depicting the moods expressed by a recording. Moodagent can also create playlists automatically by finding songs with similar mood profiles in the listener’s personal music collection. The app is available for free on iTunes .

This week Crystal Bowersox (Image 1), Siobhan Magnus (Image 2) and Katie Stevens (Image 3) gave their songs the most variations in mood and tempo.

Last week, Tim Urban changed the genre of his song choice from rock to reggae. This week Lee DeWyze gave The Box Tops hit “The Letter”, a distinctly jazz sound. He had no more luck with the judges than Urban.

Of course, Moodagent won’t reveal who has pitch problems. That’s up to America.
