I’m not a huge fan of Amercian Idol, but I’ve been watching this year . Caleb is the man to beat, and Jena is really a contender also. Last night Jessica took on a Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks) on IMO she really Nailed it. It takes real confidence in yourself to make this happen.
There are a few artists out there IMO (Mariah,Whitney,Michael Jackson and maybe Celine Dion) who should never be taken on, especially in a contest as big as this, unless your damn sure you can do it justice or really make it your own. I love Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac . I can listen to her sing for hours and be totally taken by her voice and Presence.
The judges didn’t seem to feel it as much as I’m saying, but I think there is a disconnect sometimes about being there in the audience and how it comes off on TV. She sang Rhiannon, A huge song for Stevie, and Jessica REALLY sounded great. You have to be really unique to sound like Stevie, and Jessica really did the song and Stevie Justice. I hope she goes far in the Competition. If you are a fan of Fleetwood Mac or would like to be I’ve included Access here to Download their Greatest hits CD called the Very Best of.
