My Hope For Megan Joy

It's probably pretty obvious by now that I have a small obsession with American Idol. What you might not know though is that I also have a small obsession with Fiona Apple. So I am going to combine these two worlds and suggest that Megan Joy, Megan Corkrey, Megan Joy Corkrey . . oh whatever the hell she is going by these days . . I'm just going to call her Megan Apple. I'm going to call her this because this is the artist I see Megan becoming.

A lot of hype surrounds Adam Lambert (and for good reason!) and even still Danny (my steam might be dying a little) Gokey, but I feel Megan is a bit under appreciated. Megan is unique and already has that appeal that goes along with stand-out artists. From her whimsical colored tattoos that cover most of her right arm, to her interesting twists on words (like "night" in mid-night), to her weird little dance moves . . these defining "trademark" characteristics make her someone I am interested in, and, therefore, someone I would like to see go far in the Idol competition.

So, Megan, I suggest to you to keep doin' what you're doin' girl. Except, perhaps, I would like to see you do something a little bit more acoustical (if that is a word), lights dimmed, and one guy standing off to the side picking an instrument for minor accompaniment. You may not have the strongest voice, but your unique identity is what makes you special.

Mo-Town is this week and I'm not sure about this for her, but when the opportunity comes up, I would like to see Megan channel her inner-Fiona and do something like "Extraordinary Machine." (link posted below). Indeed, you will see the comparisons, right down to the funny little hand gestures.

    Yeah, I like Megan too. Just not sure if she's got the voice to carry her. But as Kara always says, "She is a Package Artist!" Ha!

  2. I know. That "package artist" comment gets a little old sometimes. I'm still waiting for Megan's break-out moment! In the meantime, can we please just get rid of Sarver already!? I'm getting tired of saying it. :-)

American Idol: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

Idol: I-Tune Down Loads Equals Big Let Down

Well, as speculated, it was the Top I-Tunes Downloads theme on Idol tonight, allowing for something more 'current.' But the whole night, with a few exceptions, proved to be a big let down.
Let Down #1:Allison's outfit and Edward Scissorhands' hairdo. Even Randy couldn't wait to get through the positive comments to ask, "What is up with the outfit?!" We all know Allison's voice is amazing, so I have to focus on the question that still begs to be answered: Just what has the 'Glam Squad' done to her? Please. De-glam my Allison at once and give her back to me a-la 'Alone' days! But they won't do this, and you know why? Because it wouldn't be right if we had an unknown early front runner who didn't have the help of a producer pimp-out be allowed to shine. Oh no. We have to allow Simon tell her that she 'shouted the song'! WTF?!! Chopped locks + Fourth Slot + Insane Critiques + Mustache Doodles = SABOTAGE!
Let Down #2:Matt …

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…
