[ # ] Catie Turner has a manic Sunday on Idol and Clay Aiken has some words for her
May 7th, 2018 under American Idol 9+, Susanna Hoffs

Back when American Idol was on Fox, the three judges, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul, would rip the contestants a new one if they flubbed the lyrics. That was then, now it is a whole new ball game since the show is on ABC with these three judges.

Catie Turner forgot the first few lines to Manic Monday. Instead of starting over starting over she just went on with the song once she remembered the rest of the words. When she was done, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, all told her it was OK and that it has happened to them too. Well, American Idol’s real season 2 winner, Clay Aiken, did not like how nice they were to her and wrote, “So when i was on @AmericanIdol I slightly flubbed some lyrics. Nowhere near this noticable.. and even Paula gave me hell. This girl gets a therapy session?! 🙄 Really? Seriously??! What happened to the show we loved? #MakeIdolGreatAgain.”

He is 100% right. How many of us have been to a concert and the singer forgot the lyrics? How pissed off were you? I still remember Sammy Hagar messing up Right Here, Right Now. We pay a lot of money to see them sing, they better know the words to the songs they are singing. Don’t tell them it is OK. I love you Luke, but I will never forget you screwing up the National Anthem. Will you?

I get it she is young, but still, she needs to learn the right way not the wrong way to act as a professional singer. She also has to learn the right way to choose a Prince song and not just one that was sung by another artist. That and she totally messed up The Bangles tune. What was up with her dancing? Like she said it was not her not night. So much so, she was rightfully eliminated.

BTW if this is what American Idol is like now, no wonder it is doing poorly in the ratings. There is nothing positive I can say about it. Can you?
