If you had been seeing our site been appearing a bit different with different looks.

It is because the webmaster has been trying out a new theme from WordPress and wanting to function exactly the same as Tribune Media-owned web sites.  Ava Zinn is currently developing a new WordPress theme for all NoSirGifts-owned properties and venues.

America’s Got Talent 11 Live Shows What You Need to Know

When Ava Zinn added America’s Got Talent and Dancing with the Stars two years ago as make-up competitions, we’ve seen a lot of successful VFTG picks and flex picks.

But, that was in 2014…. the moderator panelists had to support Valerie Rockey on SYTYCD and Emily West on AGT 9 and made the respective finales.

Now it 2016 and the 11th season of AGT live shows are underway.

This year for the first time ever, I am happy to announce on behalf of Zinn’s Villains, Ava Zinn is allowing the guys to support the VFTG picks (the ladies get to choose them as well as their flex picks) as our flex picks.

This is a big change because the guys are allowed to use flex picks to choose a female contestant on America’s Got Talent from the (female) moderators on the pink and purple teams to the Male Moderators (or Zinn’s Villains) on the red and blue teams because the female moderators are not allowed to participate in America’s Got Talent competition and the male villains are not allowed to participate in Dancing with the Stars.

The Villains’ Save will used in the event the last female contestant on  America’s Got Talent is eliminated and unlike the Moderators’ Save used to decline the loss on The Voice and American Idol (of which only the female moderators are given the power to exercise a veto), Zinn’s Villains will, upon the elimination of the last female contestant’s elimination (just like when the female moderators did with Valerie Rockey and DaNica Shirey upon their eliminations) are given the power to exercise a veto and spare the site from a Vote for the Girls Loss for America’s Got Talent. This can only be invoked up until the Top 10 or Finale. If the Villains’ Save is used on America’s Got Talent,  the Villains will not get to choose any Vote for the Girls picks on The Voice because no loss is declared. The Villains’ Save can only be used once and it must be unanimous pending the final vote of the Moderators.

It will be interesting to see how all this plays out. Will a Villain get the first Vote for the Girls Victory on America’s Got Talent? Just last week, Ava tweeted: “After reviewing Samantha Johnson’s performances on AGT10, we have decided that we will Archibald Coolranch his first DOUBLE VFTG VICTORY!”

When do the live shows of America’s Got Talent start?

America’s Got Talent 11 live shows start at 8 PM Eastern Tuesday July 25 with the results Wednesday July 26 at 8 PM Eastern.

The live shows will then continue every Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 8 PM until September 14. Due to NBC’s commitments to the 2016 Summer Olymopics, no shows air on August 9 and 16

  • Quarterfinals Performances 1: July 26
  • Quarterfinals Performances 2: August 2
  • Quarterfinals Performances 3: August 23
  • Semifinals Performances 1: August 30
  • Semifinals Performances 2: September 6
  • Finale Performances: September 13

Who are the Vote for the Girls Picks?

There are several female contestants VFTG encourages you to vote for, but since there hadn’t been a female winner since Bianca Ryan in 2005, the MEN and TRANSMEN…

Yes, I said it right, the MEN on the BLUE TEAM (Archibald Coolranch, Glenn Swaringen, Bill Delagatto, and Tavon Savage) and the TRANSMEN on the RED TEAM (Clark Jones, Luka Runecraft, Kye Sanchez, and myself) actually made the VFTG picks normally chosen by the ladies on the PINK and PURPLE teams as our Flex picks. That is because the ladies on the PINK and PURPLE teams have Dancing with the Stars.

In other words, Ava Zinn will rarely say, “Gentlemen, there are no Vote for the Girls picks on ‘America’s Got Talent.’ All the Zinn’s Villains’ picks are good.”

The Villains’ Picks are:

Who are the Vote for the Worst Picks?

Unlike the Vote for the Worst picks that are revealed after the finales of “American Idol” or “The Voice”, the Vote for the Worst picks on “America’s Got Talent” are not revealed, so if you read this, complain to Ava Zinn about it since she’s the one who made the rules on VFTG.

In the meantime, the Villains picks will be revealed.

L-R: Holly Everman, Tracia Matthewson, and Karly Jameson.

Karly Jameson: Curly Hair Prank on Holly & Tracia

L-R: Holly Everman, Tracia Matthewson, and Karly Jameson.

L-R: Holly Everman, Tracia Matthewson, and Karly Jameson.

As women, we always worry about our hair, our weight, and our overall appearance every time we head into our car and drive to the studio. There is always that one little instinct that if all working mothers stray away from an unspoken guideline of perfection and professionalism, it will damage if not ruin one’s career. Not to mention, if viewers or fans don’t like the hairstyles (such as the fact that three of us–Holly, Tracia, and myself), a transgender woman’s makeup (we never seen Ava wear any makeup for most of the previous season other than concealer while our girlfriends Perri, Hillary, and Kathi have since they are pretty much post-op), the fans sure pretty much made their voices heard.

During the The Voice 10, all eyes were not on Lanise or Ava & Kymberly or anyone on the purple team, nor did they even focus on Alisan Porter, but they were on the pink team for a good reason besides the deaths of Kellie Rock and Kathy Roberts. Holly, Tracia, I found ourselves spending countless hours upon hours and even extra cash to a hair stylist to make sure the hair was perfect for every episode and every time we make our VFTG picks. As this is between three women each hailing from Muncie, South Bend, and Fort Wayne, Indiana. The hair maintence may have been more exhausting than Holly having her head shaved two years ago while Tracia and I didn’t and getting our hair done has been more exhausting than making a VFTG pick or even voting online. The experiences Holly, Tracia, myself, and to some extent Ava shed the light with the details of the appearances of a 33 year old transwoman in New Naptown (Marion, Indiana), a 36 year old mother of two from Muncie, a 28 year old Notre Dame Blond from Fort Wayne, and a 34 year old woman from the Circle City(Indianapolis), got us thinking, “What is f**k really going on here?”

As we approach August and the dog days of the hot sticky summer. It is that time of year when straightening our curly locks is more challenging because of the humidity.

Holly Everman: I began straightening my hair in 1993 after my mom too me to a hair stylist to get my hair straightened wondering why I had curly hair. I also remember (the late) Robyn (Hurd) doing the same a few years earlier and I realized that my hair looks the same as Robyn’s–auburn Red and long.

Tracia Ward: When I began my news anchoring career in South Bend, there was usually seemed to be a clear and cut style for women in the news business. Since it was a NoSirGifts-owned station, I knew a black blouse and a black skirt wasn’t allowed unless someone at the station or a former member of that particular station passes away. I had never heard of Lanise White and Kathy Roberts (then known as Kathy Fountaine) until they respectively joined the moderator panel nor did I know they first began their news careers with curly hair back in before I was even born.

Karly Jameson: I remember the day I met Lanise White for the first time in 2012. I had been interviewed by Ms. White while she was in Milwaukee talking about “The Karly Ryder, Jr. Show” (my show). It was about gay rights and the elections. Little did I know until watching old Milwaukee news clips was the fact both Lanise White and Kathy Roberts both had curly hair. When Kathy died, I went to Tracia stating we have to do something in honor of Kathy Roberts.

After Alisan Porter won The Voice, the remaining pink team members at the time–Holly, Tracia, and Thia (Thia Tola was about to moved to the purple team), had to do something because we had not been having the best of seasons while Ava & Kymberly (Alvaraz) pretty much dominated the pruple team. So as our punishment, although no losses were declared on The Voice 9 and 10 nor the final season of American Idol 15 thanks to flex picking. What Ava does not know is that I had gotten Kendra Ray (who has since moved to the pink team) and Lanise White in on the prank on the PINK TEAM’S PUNISHMENT!!! I had decided to stop using my blow dryer, my hair straightener and the five products that made my hair straight so I thought Lanise would get the idea and Ava & Kymberly would be too busy to notice if they hadn’t already.

Tracia Matthewson and Holly Everman: We noticed on the night of May 3, 2016 that our InStylers Ava had given to us in 2014 were gone and a note stating what happened to the InStylers and the blow dryers since we always do our own hair and makeup. Holly came out of her dressing room and told me, “I hadn’t gotten the chance to use it myself, but I know you have, Tracia.”

Much to the surprise and amazement, the three of us kind of like it curly. The bouncy, big curls match my bubbly and outgoing personality. Holly loves it curly and hadn’t worn it for 25 years and wanted to do this to celebrate the 25 years she and Ava have been close friends. Unlike Tracia, I wanted to wear it on air, untamed and completely natural. It is something I know Holly wants want to do every day while Tracia & I doesn’t necessarily want to do everyday but at least when I am in the mood.

Finally, on the behalf of Holly Everman and Tracia Matthewson, I can say I am proud of my hair as wearing my hair as it was given to me, big, uncontrollable and curly, helped me get across the message that I am finally not afraid to be different. Rather, I am excited to embrace being myself as a loving wife to Kathi and proud as a bisexual.

VFTG USA GUYS RULE

VFTG Pick Changes for July 18, 2016

VFTG USA GUYS RULE

In previous years, when a female contestant finished in second or worse, a make-up competition is needed. With Ava & Kymberly dominated with double moderator victories on The Voice 9, The Voice 10, American Idol 15, and Dancing with the Stars 21. Ava & Kymberly have a number of advantages for the eighth season of Vote for the Girls.

First, Ava & Kymberly do not have to participate in the thirteenth season of So You Think You Can Dance and the 23rd season of DWTS. Second, Ava & Kymberly still have to obtain the Curly Sue DVD, as well as more surprises yet to come.

Meanwhile, as Lanise White became the winning moderator of Dancing with the Stars 22, Lanise declined the advantage and decided to participate in the 13th season of “So You Think You Can Dance.” However, as part of her reward for Nyle DiMarco winning DWTS 22, Lanise went to watch the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 and will be watching the 2016 NFL Hall of Fame Game in person.

However, the tables have turned for villains of the Vote for the Girls moderators… As they suffered their second consecutive shut out, the men on the red and blue teams have to participate in “America’s Got Talent” for the second consecutive season. Had Jordan Smith and Trent Harmon not been flexed out to Ava & Kymberly from Leonard Lai and Clark Jones, respectively, Leonard’s successor, Luka Runecraft and Clark, would not be participating in the 11th season of AGT. Too bad for Luka and Clark, though, but that is what happens when flex picks are in on VFTG…

There is a silver lining for the men on blue and red team — just like the women on the pink and purple team have with “DWTS”, the men have “AGT.” Last year, the males on VFTG, decided to support as many as female contestants as their flex picks nominally supported by the pink and purple teams in addition to their usual picks (or the VFTG version of Vote for the Worst picks). A notable difference is the fact none of the Vote for the Worst picks on AGT are ever revealed.

Ava Zinn, founder and webmaster of Vote for the Girls said, “When the ‘Guys Rule’ episode aired back in April and added flex picks in 2016, I knew they were the right changes that had to be made. The girls on the panel already have “DWTS” as a built-in make-up competition and with the addition of “AGT” in 2014, I figured Zinn’s Villains needed some prominence.”

“There are no Vote for the Worst picks on DWTS. All the moderators’ picks are good” is a common quote on VFTG.  Perhaps adding “There are no Vote for the Girls picks on AGT. All the villains’ picks are good,” is something Dave Della Terza did not even think about when his Vote for the Worst site competed with Vote for the Girls.

Nonetheless, here are the Vote for the Girls pick changes for So You Think You Can Dance 13:

KEY:

FLEXED: moved from a male villain either the red or blue team to any female moderator and vice versa
CROSS-FLEXED: moved from one female moderator from either the pink or purple team to another moderator on the opposing purple or pink team

  • Ava Zinn and Kymberly Alvaraz
    • None – Not required to participate due to Alisan Porter winning “The Voice 10”
  • Rachael Passalt (NEW)
    • Tahani Anderson
  • Thia Tola (MOVED from Pink Team)
    • Tate McRae (CROSS-FLEXED from Holly & Perri)
  • Kathi & Karly Jameson
    • Did not make a pick.
  • Lanise White & Danni McClannahan
    • Leon “Kida” Burns (FLEXED from Bill Delagatto)
  • Donna Doogan (NEW)
    • Jake Monreal (FLEXED from Archibald Coolranch)
  • Tracia & Hillary Matthewson
    • Emma Hellenkamp (CROSS-FLEXED from Thia Tola)
  • Ann & Kylie Dwyar (NEW)
    • Jordan Nata’e Wandick
  • Kendra Ray (MOVED from Purple Team)
    • Daniela Avanzini
  • Holly Everman & Perri Johnson
    • J. T. Church (FLEXED from Tavon Savage)
  • Marti McDaniel (NEW)
    • Ruby Castro
  • Breeanna Sorensen (NEW)
    • Sheaden Gabriel (FLEXED from Clark Jones)

And last but not least, for the first time ever on Vote for the Girls.. The female moderators have always used their flex picks on male contestants on “American Idol” and “The Voice” for the past two years. But starting this season, the male villians will use their flex picks on female contestants, making them a Vote for the Girls pick for villains. Should one of the villains’ VFTG pick become the overall winner, not only will it be the first female victory since Bianca Ryan won AGT in the first season, but also the winning moderator will be a man unless the Moderators’ Save is used. The same Vote for the Girls rules apply. As with on “Dancing with the Stars” the only way a loss can happen on “AGT” is if none of the villains have chosen the winner. But, if the villain’s flex pick and his Vote for the Worst pick are in the Top 2 of AGT, he will get a “Double VFTG Victory.”

Keep in mind that all VFTG picks on AGT are all flexed to a Zinn’s Villain since the female moderators are not allowed to participate on AGT (and the female moderators that would have chosen them as her VFTG pick will be awarded an addition flex pick each).

The AGT picks for Zinn’s Villains are so far:

  • Archibald Coolranch
    • Calysta Bevier (FLEXED from Ava & Kymberly)
    • Dorthy Williams (FLEXED from Thia Tola)
    • Julia Scotti (FLEXED FROM Breeanna Sorensen, CROSS-FLEXED from Phil Allen)
  • Bill Delagatto (NEW)
    • Kadie Lynn Roberson (FLEXED from Donna Doogan, CROSS-FLEXED from Clark Jones)
    • Laura Bretan (FLEXED from Kathi & Karly)
  • Glenn Swaringen
    • Moya Angela (FLEXED from Ava & Kymberly)
  • Tavon Savage (NEW)
    • Ronee Martin (FLEXED from Breeanna Sorensen)
    • Grace Vanderwall (FLEXED from Rachael Passalt)
  • Phil Allen (NEW)
    • Julia Scotti (FLEXED from Breeanna Sorensen, Archibald Coolranch CHALLENGE)
  • Clark Jones
    • Edgar (FLEXED from Holly & Perri)
  • Luka Runecraft
    • Kadan Bart Rockett (FLEXED from Holly & Perri, CROSS-FLEXED from Tavon Savage)
    • Deadly Games (FLEXED from Ann & Kylie)
  • Kye Sanchez (NEW)
    • Sofie Dossi (FLEXED from Thia Tola)
    • Lori Mae Hernandez (FLEXED from Thia Tola, CROSS-FLEXED from Archibald Coolranch)

Lanise White participating in SYTYCD 13

Lanise & DanniLanise White | VOTE FOR THE GIRLS USA

I may be the winning moderator when Nyle DiMarco was declared the winner of the 22nd season of “Dancing with the Stars,” but I have declined my grand prize due to being pregnant.

DiMarco on May 24, 2016 was crowned the winner of season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, but it was overshadowed by Alisan Porter winning the tenth season of “The Voice.”

As the winning moderator of DWTS, the winning moderator gets some advantages such as not participating in the make-up competitions in the following cycle or season, $250,000, and a prize announced by Ava Zinn, but I tweeted today that I am not taking the make-up competition advantage since the DWTS 23 finale falls near my due date.

The production division of NoSirGifts released a statement on Friday announcing their disappointment that I would not be accepting the entirety of the winning moderator prizes due to ‘unforeseen personal circumstances.’

What I will say is ‘Thank you for the kind words, and the rumors are very entertaining, but I will not address the negativity or bullcrap headlines about this.” I will also say I know it  was the right decision after my Dancing with the Stars 21 pick of Kim Zolciak-Biermann withdrew in September 2015 despite being able to rehearse, but her doctors refused to clear her for air travel after she suffered a mini-stroke causing her to be unable attend the dress rehearsal and the live show, which, according to rules of DWTS, meant Kim would have to withdraw from the competition. When a VFTG pick withdraws or is disqualified, all of the affected moderators’ remaining VFTG picks are moved to another moderator and result being disqualified.

But the silver lining is I got a $250,000 bonus, a chance to see the 2016 NFL Hall of Fame game in Akron, Ohio which my Green Bay Packers play against the Indianapolis Colts

Christina Grimmie (1994-2016)

New Details Emerge about Assassination of Christina Grimmie, Theories Develop

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Christina Grimmie Was Living Every Young Singer’s Dream—Until, Orlando Police Say, a Deluded Fan with two Guns Took It All Away

“Christina didn’t have an enemy in the world,” said Vote for the Girls moderator Marti McDaniel. And apparently it was no enemy who struck her down. The man charged with her murder, 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl, was described by police as an obsessive fan as the moderator panel thought it was an act of revenge for her loss on “The Voice” and allow Josh Kaufman’s victory.

A 22-year-old native of Marlton, New Jersey, Grimmie seemed to have a career on the rise. She was a contestant on the sixth season of the NBC reality singing competition “The Voice” and one of the greatest Vote for the Girls picks of all time, ranking up with Angie Miller, Jena Asciutto, Pia Toscano, and Alisan Porter. Charming and effervescent, she was performing as an opening act during a concert on the Friday night of June 10, 2016 to a world full of opportunity.

Not long thereafter, Grimmie fans heard five shots and two screams. “It was bloodcurdling,” says one fan.  She had been shot three times in the head. The man in the red shirt was tackled by Grimmie’s brother, Marcus, and later took his own life. Four and a half hours later Grimmie was pronounced dead at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

After the assassination, police and very few speculated that the killer was a deranged fan. “This was something that should have been fun and exciting and for someting like this to happen is a tragedy,” said Sgt. Wanda Miglio of the Orlando Police Department. McDaniel said, “I can only assume that it was somebody who didn’t know her but was obsessed with her. I can’t imagine that anybody who really knew her would do this. She was so mature and intuitive that she would have made sure this couldn’t happen.”

McDaniel was right. Hollywood Take reported that there was speculation that she had been killed by an ex-boyfriend. Steven J. Robinson, a member of Selena Gomez’s band, wrote on Facebook early Saturday that Grimmie was shot by an old boyfriend. Gomez was friends with Grimmie and previously toured with her. But Orlando Police still maintained that Grimmie did not know the person who shot her.
The murder of Rebecca Schaeffer in 1989 came sprang first to mind when the name of Grimmie’s assailant was revealed. Like Loibl, Robert Bardo was obsessed with Schaeffer and had been stalking her for three years. After writing numerous letters to Schaeffer, Bardo attempted to gain access to the set of the CBS TV series My Sister Sam, on which Schaeffer played a starring role. Ultimately, he obtained her home address via a detective agency, who in turn tracked it via California Department of Motor Vehicles records. On July 18, 1989, he confronted her at her home, angry at her for having starred in a sex scene in the film Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills and thus having “lost her innocence.” He visited her at her apartment and told her he was a big fan. She signed an autograph, went back into her apartment and he left. About an hour later, Bardo again rang the bell to her apartment. Upon Schaeffer opening the door, Bardo fired one round of ammunition, killing her.

In the years since Schaffer and likely now after Christina Grimmie’s assassination, an uncomfortable number of people have been found to have experienced such twisted love and hate that has been going on for well over 30 years.

On the violent dark side for example, on April 10, 2014, Khayla Chow shoved Holly Everman to the floor causing the Vote for the Girls brawl. Chow was a guest moderator on Vote for the Girls that night and was fired on September 18, 2014. When Chow tried to gain access to the Vote for the Girls set, Chow  was killed by Kymberly Alvaraz on October 21, 2014, and Alvraz was found not guilty since it was ruled justified.

Even more frightening is the case of Bruce A. Raines, now 50-51, an umpire for a little league baseball team, begins to stalk then-teenager Laurisa Anello, now 42-43. He sends her all kinds of gifts like roses, pizzas, magazines, and then he begins sending strange notes. Her also follows her around town. Laurisa and her mother, Linda, constantly look over their shoulders out of fear.

Incidents like these abound are fortunately most are not hazardous to anyone’s health. Anyone, including the entire moderator panel of Vote for the Girls, who has spent many years in the local public eye knows that any public outing is likely to be interrupted and quiet conversation at a restaurant or a shopping trip to a grocery store becomes a thing of the past. “Mollie and I never had a dinner out in Iowa when there weren’t people at our table asking for Mollie’s autograph,” says VFTG Moderator Kendra Ray about her wife, Mollie. “[They want to tell you about] their devotion to the female contestants or male flex picks, how long they’ve supported the ladies, how long they’ve been fans of the Iowa Hawkeyes, down to their personal problems. They just sit down and start telling you.”

In Ohio and Florida, prior to joining Vote for the Girls, Donna Doogan was bothered for years by a farmer named Mark Roland. After numerous prior convictions for stalking, he was convicted in 2014 after calling Doogan nearly 518 times in six months.

“The cult of Vote for the Girls provides archetypes and icons with which alienated souls can identify,”  says a psychologist that Kymberly Alvaraz interviewed on WTOR-FTV’s (CBS 41 Fort Wayne) weekend morning newscast . “On top of that, this country has been embarking for a long time on a field experiment in the use of sex and violence on TV. It is commonplace to watch people getting blown away. We’ve given the ‘true sore losers’ a rare chance to express their dominance.”

Glenn Becker, a security expert and NoSirGifts security guard in Columbus, Ohio interviewed by Perri Johnson on WXXC-FDT’s (INNCD 47 Fort Wayne) primetime newscast Saturday night, helps news staff and local figures ward off unwanted attentions when entering Stage 41 and Stage 47 of the NoSirGifts Studios in Fort Wayne, thinks the problem is increasing. “It’s getting much worse,” says Becker. “It’s because of the emphasis on the lives of media figures, particularly on YouTube and social media. And this has blurred the line between appropriate and inappropriate behavior. Nowhere in history could you completely ‘know’ someone like you can now ‘know’ Kathy Finklemyre.”

Christina Grimmie’s death, to say the least, was particularly shocking and horrible.  Her personality, by all accounts, made her seem like a dream. A wonderful daughter, a sister, a damn good Vote for the Girls pick. But as a 16-year-old in 2010, she became famous on her own YouTube, joining the likes of Rising Star’s Macy Kate, American Idol 12’s Angie Miller, and likely many more Vote for the Girls picks that all ventured into furthering their singing careers .

“I remember back in 2014 watching her blind audition in North Carolina taking one look and fell in love with her,” recalls VFTG moderator Breeanna Sorensen, watching “The Voice.”  “Christina ahad a fresh charismatic way about her and was very gorgeous, with big brown hair and and a beautiful smile.”

Kylie Dwyar, then a news anchor in Denver and now VFTG Moderator remembers interviewing Grimmie in 2014. “I went to LA two years ago and I saw this nice, clean kid,” she says. “She was very serious about what she did. She was always this good kid who never lost her friends or her perspective.”

The buoyancy and the bright image were rewarded quickly. Soon Christina was a rising star. Even as the career took off, Grimmie remained an unspoiled charmer from New Jersey . “She was extremely curious and spirited,” says Dwyar. “She was the only celebrity I’ve ever known who managed to become successful and remain unjaded.”

Samantha Zinn, daughter of VFTG moderator Ava Zinn, who saw her on YouTube several years ago on, says, “She was the intellect that sat you down and told you what the industry was all about. I don’t want to say she was fearless. But she wasn’t affected by the big city or intimidated by the power.”

But, sometimes tragically, celebrities are not allowed the luxury of being alone. Grimmie discovered that on the night of June 10, 2016, when she had just finished a concert in Orlando and meeting with fans to sign autographs. And why not? How much risk could there be in a concert venue filled with parents of teenagers and young adults?

What she encountered was a white male whom witnesses described as nondescript.

He killed her with a three shots.

Afterward he was tackled by Marcus Grimmie, Christina’s brother, and the man shot and killed himself. The sorrow and devastation he left behind made it very clear, to paraphrase the respective philospohies of Carl Brizzi and yours truly, Ava Zinn: “Criminals Have a Choice. Victims Don’t” and “Producers/News Directors Have a Choice, Viewers Don’t”.

 

Christina Grimmie Assassinated

Christina Grimmie Assasinated

ORLANDO, Fla. (from WFTV/WTHR) – The Latest on the assassination of Christina Grimmie, in Orlando, Florida:

4:00 p.m.

The moderator panelists of Vote for the Girls are saddened to hear about the death of Christina Grimmie. She has been one of the best VFTG picks ever. On this day–June 11, 2016, when the moderator panelists were about to go on a reward for Alisan Porter’s victory on the tenth season of “The Voice” suddenly word arrived from Orlando that Christina Grimmie was rushed to an Orlando area hospital and now this devastating news that she was assassinated.

11:10 a.m.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina says that the suspect who shot and killed Grimmie apparently traveled from another city in Florida to Orlando to confront her, reportedly as an act of revenge from her third place finish on “The Voice 6”.

Mina says the suspect didn’t appear to know Christina Grimmie personally and may have been a deranged fan, although the motive was still unknown.

Grimmie was shot to death after giving a concert in Orlando on Friday night. She died early Saturday.

The 22-year-old singer from New Jersey finished third during season six of NBC’s “The Voice” in 2014, competing on the team of Maroon 5 star Adam Levine. She began amassing a following on YouTube as a teenager, gripping online viewers with her powerful renditions of hit songs. Her videos on YouTube have garnered millions of views.

9:45 a.m.

Christina Grimmie’s last social media post a few hours before she was fatally shot showed a smiling upbeat young woman asking people to attend her concert.

“Hey guys, what’s up?” she said into the camera. The 22-year-old was bubbly and urged fans to stop by the show at The Plaza in Orlando. She closed with an excited “byee!”

The video was posted around 7 p.m. and according to authorities, the concert ended around 10 p.m. Grimmie was shot as she signed autographs for fans at a merchandise table.

Grimmie, a Marlton, New Jersey native, competed on the team of Maroon 5 star Adam Levine. She began amassing a following on YouTube as a teenager, gripping online viewers with her powerful renditions of hit songs. Her videos on YouTube have garnered millions of views.

5:00 am
Singer Christina Grimmie has died from wounds after being shot at a Florida concert venue Friday, according to Heather Walsh the entertainer’s publicist.

The singer and members of the band Before You Exit were signing autographs after a concert at Orlando’s Plaza Live when a male suspect shot Grimmie, Orlando Police Department Sgt. Wanda Miglio said at a news conference.

Grimmie’s brother tackled the shooter. The suspect then fatally shot himself, Miglio said.

Police did not identify the shooter and said a motive is not yet known. Miglio called the shooting a “very tragic event” and praised Grimmie’s brother as a “hero.”

The shooter had two guns on him, according to police.

The shooting occurred around 10:45 p.m. ET while the performers were meeting with fans and selling merchandise. There were around 60 people in the area at the time, but nobody else was hurt, Miglio said.

Fans reported hearing at least six gunshots inside the venue.

Police say Grimmie’s brother tackled the gunman, something Mina called heroic as it prevented the suspect from shooting any other bystanders. The gunman then turned the gun on himself.

The singer was brought to Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition. Shortly after 3 a.m., Orlando police announced that Grimmie had died from her injuries

Her publicist issued a statement to WFTV, confirming the news.

At the time of the shooting, 120 people were inside the venue, which was being patrolled by unarmed security guards, Mina said.

Though the venue doesn’t have metal detectors or require pat-downs, Mina said security officers checked bags and purses at the facility’s entrance.

Police believe the gunman had planned to return to the city from where he came. Investigators are now studying his cellphone and computer to determine his motive.

Investigators also are trying to determine how the unidentified man obtained the guns.

Mina said there’s no indication Grimmie knew her killer. And it’s unknown if he had contacted her on social media.

Detectives met Grimmie’s parents Saturday.

Grimmie came in third place and the female winner (losing to notorious Vote for the Worst pick Josh Kaufman) on season 6 of “The Voice,” NBC’s singing competition, which aired in 2014.
