Well, life took one of those turns today. I got up this morning to a very, very ill mother. By afternoon, when no meds had helped, Daughter #1 and I took Mom to the hospital. She was in the ER for about four hours. Feeling weak but a bit better, she’ll be on a clear diet for a few days.
Anyway, I didn’t get a single word written today, and tomorrow I have to take her to the doctor for a follow up. Which means it will be a tough writing day too. Deadline is bearing down on me. Not good. I need to write!!!
Okay, let’s get to Idol, shall we?
We got a a song from the Next Great American Band winners, the Clark Brothers tonight. I wasn’t crazy about their version of This Little Light of Mine. I must be too old to appreciate that style.
Bottom three tonight: Ramiele, Kristy Lee, and Brooke. But first …
Here’s Dolly, and she’s singing Jesus & Gravity. Way to go, Dolly. Let’s have a bit of revival on American Idol. This is one of her songs from her new album, Backwoods Barbie. Love it. Love it. There’s just nobody like her. She is a true original (and one very talented songwriter).
And when all was said and done, Ramiele was sent home. And despite tears, she did a pretty good job with her exit song. Sweet girl and certainly a good voice. With some maturing and more performing experience, she could go places.
Wishing you well, Ramiele!
