Michael Lynche loses grip on “American Idol”
Well, it was bound to happen. Michael Lynche got nixed from “American Idol” on Wednesday. The 26-year-old Floridian faced the ax five weeks ago but was granted mercy by the judges.
Possessing an extroverted stage personality and a “100 percent” effort as Simon Cowell couched it, Lynche lost favor with his musical style, rather than his smooth vocal chords.
Lynche’s decision to try out Michael Jackson’s “Will You Be There” threw the judges who were expecting a tune with a bit more pungent R&B.
In the end, Lynche was more easy listening.
Bret F. at MSN’s TV blog kept a keen watch on the show.
In his summary he sees that Crystal Bowersox is back on top thanks to her cover of Kenny Loggins’ “I’m Alright.” Lee Dewyze is erratic in bringing his ‘A game’ to the performance. Meanwhile, Casey James is still trying to find his musical voice. Oi vey.
