I'm old enough to be his grandmother, too, probably! lol But he's my favorite for the same reason as you said-- he's a real entertainer.
The rest of the group bored me to tears tonight. Eddie Island and Evelyn were way out of their leagues and should never have been picked to be on this show. The last guy singing Climb Every Mountain was soooo high school spring musical 1968. I love the guy but he's no American Idol. Lane was just an Elvis wanna be.
The judges gave everyone a tongue bath, I guess trying to convince us they were star material and we should be blown away. We're not dumb, judges. I need Simon on the show to jerk the contestants all back to reality! ENTERTAIN US! Convince us that you can be AND ARE star material!
