I have to admit, I’m a big fan of Angela Miller on the current season of American Idol. Last week, she sang a song I totally love, Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life”, and I really liked her rendition of it. It was so good, in fact, that my friends are still talking about it almost a week later! If you haven’t seen it yet, you should definitely check it out below:
Even all the judges agreed that they liked it, which is no small feat this year. Mariah Carey said, and I quote, “I really appreciated this song.” Of course, this makes me wonder–what the heck does that mean, exactly? She says this all the time on the show, and it confuses me because it doesn’t really mean anything. I mean, I appreciate a lot of things like Post-It notes when I’m answering the phone and Starbucks Iced Tea when I’m thirsty, but if I was a judge on American Idol I might come up with something a little more helpful than “I really appreciated this song.” But, she is Mariah Carey and I love her…so, who really cares?
My final comment about American Idol is I was sad to see Burnell Taylor go. Burnell was by far my favorite male contestant, as I loved his soulful voice and super sweet smile. I will admit, his rendition of Bon Jovi’s ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’ left a lot to be desired. I’m of the school of thought that if you are going to sing either a Bryan Adams or Bon Jovi cover, you’d best nail it because no one will forgive you otherwise. Even with this being said, Burnell’s elimination has left me somewhat perplexed by how Lazaro Arbos is the sole remaining guy on the program. The only thing I can figure is American Idol has another Sanjaya Malakar on its hands.
Never saw that coming, that’s for sure.
