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 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 "…

It's a Crystal / Lee Finale ... And I'm Alright.

(Bye little, Casey.  Hey, we'll always have "Jealous Guy")
I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
The end is now in sight
Will it be Crystal or that damn sexy Lee?

Yes, folks.  Don't worry about me.  I am still alive.  I just haven't been posting as regularly because I've been waiting to be moved again.  And if those hometown visits last night didn't get you a little misty eyed, well then may I suggest you check your pulse. 

In what was probably the most predicted elimination, we said goodbye to that Cool Texan, Casey James, leaving us with the two most deserving contestants of season 9:  Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox and Lee "You Can Mix My Paint Any Ol' Time" DeWyze.  And while I have always thought Mamasox would wind up with the win, I find myself pulling for Lee.  But (unlike last season), I can honestly say that I'm alright with either.  (And I think most people would agree.)

Lee's hometown visit ... well, let's just …

American Idol Top 9 Perform: Casey James, BagPipes and Didgeridoos Make For One Good Night! (Recap)

Well hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog, folks, do we finally have a competition on our hands?  Maybe I am just a little excited about my tax refund or am perhaps silly over this ga-or-geous weather we are having, but dare I say, that in last night's Idol, I saw shades of Idol season 8!?!  Yes, from the humorous moments (one word: bagpipe) to some mad awesome vocals (two words: Casey James), I finally recognized a competitive momentum taking place, which left no alternative but to bring me to a rolling boil of excitement!

I will break it down with the highlights of the night:

These Intro Packages Are Workin' For Me!:  Question for you, Mr. Idol Producer:  Why couldn't we have used these endearing little intro packages wherein Idols comment on other Idols, showing us the viewer some real personality, earlier?  I mean, how much did I love learning that Lee Dewyze and Andrew Garcia have been in a bro-mance since Hollywood Week?!  It brought me back to the big bro/lil sis days o…
