I wasn’t going to do American Idol commentary, but I just had to say goodbye to one of the female competitors that I liked going into the competition phase. Amanda Overmyer . . . she can’t possibly come back another week. (Quick aside, there’s no way Alaina knows what the term Dark Horse means.) Amanda just absolutely slaughtered “Wayward Son,” and it’s too bad, because it dawned on me who she reminds me of: D. J. from Full House, only with attitude and a comic-book hairdo. Oh well.
And a tip to any of the Idol contestants who read this blog: don’t sing your favorite song. Okay? The songs you sing along with in the car are NOT the songs you should sing on stage. “It’s always been one of my favorite songs,” is not an excuse for phoning in a lame performance.
I’ll wrap it up with this: my next change . . . is gonna be a big one. A few days’ worth.
