Texas Singer Could Be On The Way Out On Tonight’s “Idol”

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I’m not a fan of  ’art contests’. I include singing competitions in that category. But, apparently, I’m in the minority when it comes to television shows like ‘American Idol’. I must admit, they have uncovered some talented musicians we may have never heard of otherwise. But, we may be losing a Texas connection to the competition on tonights show.

Backstage at “American Idol,” Hollie Cavanagh was bubbly and confident, practicing vocal riffs and giggling with fellow teenage contestant Jessica Sanchez. By the show’s end Wednesday, Cavanagh was the sole finalist to be found wanting by the judges – and possibly by the viewers who decide which singer will exit Thursday.

“Sorry, baby,” judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez both told Cavanagh, 18, of McKinney, Texas, after she delivered a version of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” that they found emotionally wanting and unsuited to her big voice.

She won praise for her performance of Journey’s “Faithfully,” but her three competitors all drew undiluted acclaim from Tyler, Lopez and Randy Jackson.
