How do YOU think Miley did as an Idol instructor last night?
I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive when I heard Miley Cyrus was going to be doling out advice to the American Idol contestants, but surprise, surprise! Ms. Hannah Montana was an amazingly effective musical coach!
Miley seemed much older than her seventeen years as she gave out sensible and constructive advice to contestants like Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze and Tim Urban on March 23.
In fact, The Last Song starlet seemed to be pushing the contestants to be their best singer selves. American Idol IS all about ‘The Climb’, after all.
I loved when Miley told cutie Tim Urban, 20, that everyone thought he was boring, but that in person he had a huge personality and should let it shine. Completely constructive AND honest (because let’s face it, besides a pretty face, I’m still not quite sure what else Tim can offer me).
Miley’s assessment of 17-year-old Katie Stevens was dead accurate when she said her fellow teen can certainly sing, but lacks confidence. I mean, what has Simon Cowell been saying for weeks? Katie doesn’t really know who she is, and doesn’t have the confidence to make herself a presence on the Idol stage. Go, Miley! You’re dead on!
You all know by now I’ve got a special place in my heart for Crystal Bowersox – so I was ready to get my boxing gloves out if Ms. Cyrus dissed my girl. But Miley again offered a sensible critique – and told my favorite hippy that she was hiding some serious range behind her pretty dreadlocks. Lo and behold, Crystal, 24, was – hands down – (and that’s according to ALL the judges) the best performer of the night with her rendition of Janis Joplin’s ‘Me & Bobby McGee’.
Most impressive, Miley! It looks like you may have a new career path ahead of you – if you should decide to take it!
