Melinda Mentions ~ AI7 contestants
« on: February 21, 2008, 03:05:09 am »
Looks like Melinda is in everybody's minds when talking about talent or humility/sweetness.

http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7010090956  - on Michael John's polished performance last night

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/blogs/content/shared-blogs/palmbeach/streeter/entries/2008/02/american_idol_t_1.html  - Michael John's good (almost criminal) performance

Isn't that interesting?



Don't look down on small beginnings - Melinda.

He is a good singer, she was a good singer.


He is a good singer, but when Melinda Doolittle sings it's more than just good singing.  It comes from an inimitable place that most good singers will never inhabit.  It's her magic.

It's cool that so many reviewers remember Melinda and in such a positive way!  I'm still waiting for one of the AI judges to mention her name  LOL sign

How 'bout bringing her on as a guest mentor?  Some of 'em could use a little help with their arrangements and phrasing.

Interesting that there are so many mentions about Melinda.  Just goes to show you who is remembered from AI 6.

Alolha,

(Quote from cited web page)

       Syesha sings “Tobacco Road,” and I think this is the first time we’ve heard a girl sing in on the show.
       It’s a great choice from her; she really blasts it out. I think Syesha is going to be our Melinda Doolittle this season, hitting everything out of the park.

True, Bernie.  But there's just something about her, can't put my finger on it.  Almost like she feels entitled or something.  Great singer, cute as a button.  But no "humbleness" about her.  She just didn't affect me the way Melinda did.
