Every week when we tune in to American Idol, we always look forward to the performance of one of the contestants more than all of the others. Although we are fond of several other American Idol hopefuls, such as Michael Lynche and Siobhan Magnus, it is hippie-chick Crystal Bowersox who has truly won our hearts this year.
Last night, Crystal Bowersox rocked it out yet again in the American Idol top 11 with a passionate performance of Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bobby McGee”. The song was an absolutely perfect choice for her vocals and we frankly haven’t heard a better version of this song since Joplin sang it herself.
Michel Lynche’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” once again showed off his big, powerful voice, but we found the song rather boring and stale. Still, we love Big Mike and hope like hell he ends up in the top three. As for the rest of the competitors, we were decently impressed with Siobhan Magnus – she’s quite growing on us. Casey James actually pulled off a rather okay version of “Power of Love”. We’re not a fan of Casey James, so it takes a lot to say we didn’t hate it too much.
The rest of the guys and girls this week were so pathetic we can’t even make a good guess at who will end up going home. It might Paige Miles, who wasÂ painfully terrible singing “Against All Odds”, but we’re still kind of hoping Tim Urban will get the boot despite the VotefortheWorst.com crowd.
Just on a completely random note, we’re a little insulted that Bowersox let Miley Cyrus sign her guitar. We’re sure Melissa Etheridge and the other notables gracing Bowersox’s instrument are shuddering at having that poser wannabe’s name scrawled so close to their own…
