It’s Over-Myer

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.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. She was terrible. The fact that they let her go out with hair like that night after night is a complete travesty.

  2. Ah, I’d pick her to go home (her performance was torture!) but she’s on so I think she might be staying for awhile…


  3. Wow. She made it through. I hope she gets better rather than continue to deserve her VFTW status. If tonight’s group performance is any indication, that ain’t happening.

  4. I guess I am the only wierdo that likes her. She’s different and looks like a skunk but I have always liked the strange ones. I thought she was leaving too though.
