R&B and soul singer and songwriter Quentin Moore was one of the judges for the talent show and kicked off the event with a few “old school” songs.

Raising Vision and Voice – Chris Slawecki - Allaboutjazz.com
"You Forgot Your Heart honors and advances the vocal soul music traditions of Sam Cooke and Curtis Mayfield, of Stax and Motown Records. The smooth background vocal and shuffling beat gently kicked along by soft funk bass turn "That's My Girl" into the Motown sound, though its closing vamp dives headlong into Cooke's hand-clapping gospel fever.

"His is a throwback style, reminiscent of R&B’s ’70s socially conscious yet still sexy heyday, but one that feels relevant, thanks in part to Moore’s astonishing voice, which glides effortlessly from a smooth tenor to a gorgeous falsetto."
"His originals provide the launching pad for a joyously and rhythmically instructional session on the highlights of old-school R&B."
Old Soul – Lucinda Breeding - Denton Record Chronicle
"He doesn’t have to play long before his many abilities announce themselves. Moore can be thumping along, controlling an audience with an irresistible soul groove. On a dime, he can pivot the same song into straight-up funk — the bass swaggering and the snares hitting just behind the beat."
Funk Soul Brother – Denton Record Chronicle
" Moore Relies on his Skills rather than Studio bells and whistles."

Quentin Moore: Portrait of the Artist as a Young man. – Allaboutjazz.com
"...his 2009 debut, Vintage Love, and 2011 follow-up, "Quentinized" (Mixtape), both self-produced, unapologetically present large, steaming warm slices of R&B and soul..."
"...Moore wrote his entire Vintage Love debut, which suggests a cross between a young Stevie Wonder, from his keyboards and arrangements, and a young Maxwell or Brian McKnight, from his smooth, sure vocals, and also provided all the lead vocals and much of its instrumentation. One of the top selling Urban R&B/Soul releases on CDBaby.com, Vintage Love highlights include the lushly evocative "Sex Song" a quiet storm that thunders and billows like Teddy Pendergrass on the tomcat prowl, and the energizing "Whoop Your Jazz (jam)."
