I’m hereby exercising my right to change my American Idol pick. Several weeks ago I said I liked Adam Lambert, and I do think he’s got a terrific voice. But after what he did to Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” (I’m a huge Cash fan and have been since high school) and then whatever it was he sang last night, I’m falling back to my former second choice, Allison Iraheta. She, too, has a great voice, and I have to constantly remind myself she’s only 16. Remarkable voice and maturity for a 16-year-old. And I like her better as a performer than some of the others who are turning out to be pretty good but are just not as memorable.
P.S. I never vote on these phone-in vote shows. Maybe if it were free, I would, but I’m too cheap to pay to vote.
