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 Results: Adam Lambert PERFORMS!!! Oh yeah, and There Was a Double Elimination.

Okay, guys, here we go with the Idol results.  Am I the only one who is sick of these results show intro package fake-outs?  You know, wherein they try and make us believe like there were Holyfield vocal TKOs last night?  (Cut to a judge exclamatory:  "Yo, those vocals were hot!!"  Then cut to Andrew Garcia holding a mic that looks as if it just turned gold right before our very eyes.)  Um, am I living in some crazy Harry Potter land?  Because I'm pretty sure this does not accurately reflect what went down on performance night at all.  But then again, I guess if they show what really went down, it would not pump me, the viewer, up.  Unlike those high voltage group sings ... those aren't watered down or lip sunk at all.  Oh what's that?!  Ms. Sleepy Weird-Eyed Gal Herself, Brooke White, and some dude I've never heard of are set to sing tonight?!!!  Well somebody better hold me back! 

Okay okay.  Who peed in my Fruity Pepples, right?  I am excited to see Adam …

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 "…

American Idol: R & B Night ... What a Difference an Usher Makes!

Well three cheers for Usher, is alls I got to say about last night's American Idol, R & B Night. If only all of them would have heeded the advice of the sunglassed one, it may have been a perfect night. But alas, Tim Urban remains unchanged, and so I'll settle for a vastly improved night instead.
Usher on Lee: Believe in Yourself. Although he may think he still belongs in the paint shop, Lee Dewyze really has a shot at winning this whole shin dig. Oh, simply the song title alone "Treat Her Like a Lady" mixed in with that gritty voice = one hot and bothered Elizabeth. You can treat me like a lady, Lee. Any ol' time. (Okay, sorry if just made anyone feel uncomfortable there.) Usher and I just ask one thing of you: Believe in yourself! Simon told you this may be the night your life changes forever, yet I still think you will come out next week with the ever present look of fear in those glistening baby blues. Not to mention, your desire to eat your guitar pick ri…
