Idol February 28th “The Top 10 Girls Sing” 3/1/06
Ten hopeful women singers
remain. Here is my recap.
When high waistline bloused Katherine walked onto the stage, I
thought she was pregnant! Very pregnant. But not even her delicate
cascading long dark hair could protect her from a timid and almost forced
Big Sky Kinnik saddled her horse and galloped into her performance.
She is a most confident cowgirl and in this fight for American Idol, she
will certainly be a tough gunslinger. The others are going to place a
price on her head.
Little Lisa reminds me of a sparking opal that is full of light and
fire. This amazing sixteen year old has what it takes to not only win this
competition, but to be a star.
beach baby Melissa swizzles like a cold steak slapped on a red hot grill.
Her voice and sultry looks will take her far in the contest. Does anyone,
beside me, think she has Elvis’s eyes?
charmer Heather’s voice was like a soggy discarded tissue. Lacking any
stage presence, she just stood there. Maybe she thought that her blue
eyes, blond hair, and cute figure would wow us. It didn’t and she

Petite Paris started flat, worked a recovery, but ended empty. Her
singing was boring as toasted white bread. She can do so much better.
Maybe she has been hanging out with Brenna?
Ayla the amateur athlete is now playing in the pros. Her voice was
right on, her stage command was right on, and she is finding her dreams
while entertaining us.
Natural country gal Kelly snaps my fingers, claps my hands, and
makes me feel good. She has such incredible natural talent. She continues
to make her grandpa proud. Keep on singing, Kelly. You are what makes
American Idol such a success.
The comfortable full range professional voice of Mandisa does not
disappoint. I am amazed that she is not already on some recording label.
We are down to ten women and two will “hit the road” in less
than 48 hours.
Their dreams will be gone. But for the others,
opportunity still is possible
