Seeing as how American Idol is the most popular show in the world, and seeing as how two Wisconsin natives moved on to Hollywood on last night’s show, I don’t think it’s a stretch at all to say that the Badger State is now calling the shots on a global stage, at least until tonight’s show. (Wisconsin is now the world’s crack spider, if you will – see previous post.)
Denise Jackson of Madison and Sarah Krueger of Eau Claire both impressed the judges on a day where most other contestants looked dreadful. Jackson taught us all an important lesson – that if you do crack while your baby is in the womb, it is likely that your child will be able to sing like Billie Holliday.
Anyway, I hope the whole City of Madison gets behind her when the Hollywood competition starts (even though I think it’s already been filmed, right?) I will be at any rally the city holds for her. It might be the only way I can get a 16 year old girl to talk to me, since hanging out near high schools seems to be yielding mixed results.
In other big singing news, I caughed up a phlegm ball as big as a watermelon when attempting to sing “Champagne Supernova” yesterday. So there’s that.
