Megan Joy of 'American Idol'
Singer: MEGAN JOY
Song: "I Go Walking After Midnight"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Last week, Megan went pure goofball. This week, she's right on the verge of burlesque and not just because the containment of her bosom is architecturally interesting, to say the least. But burlesque isn't a bad thing for Megan. Last week she was too broad and too open, playing to much for a cheering crowd. She's never going to be a singer who will do well in stadiums, but if you put her in a club or even a darkened theatre, performances like this would draw in a certain audience. Some of the twists on the melody don't sound exactly right and the high and low extremes sound rough, but she did make the song her own.
Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Simon Say: Randy thought it was going to be a trainwreck, but he was impressed and that it worked. It's all perfect for Kara, who praises Megan for fighting through the flu. Ah. That explains a lot. Megan just stands there coughing away, looking on the verge of passing out, which some cynics will call a plea for sympathy. Paula urges her to just keep being sick. Simon tells her she should have the flu every week and that she looks gorgeous. Ryan brings Megan tissues and diagnoses her with Influenza B.
