I've been pretty desperate to post about American Idol (seriously) and with last night's auditions in Memphis I thought I might finally get my chance (though they were kept to an hour due to the State of the Union—who cares?! Give me my Idol!).
Well, about halfway through the episode, in walked Melinda Doolittle, a back-up singer from Brentwood who had never had the courage to go out in front. As opposed to all the deluded wannabes that inevitably suck, this shy, demure woman tore it up! The judges had reservations about her lack of confidence but they sent her through to Hollywood.
Melinda, you make it to the finals and the Cream will chronicle your every note!
