Shania Twain Blogs About Her ‘Idol’ Muses
After meeting and mentoring the remaining six 'American Idol' contestants for Tuesday night's show (April 27), Shania Twain was so moved by each of their emotional and original interpretations of her songs, that she took to her blog to share with fans how it all made her feel.
"It was fantastic to meet up again with Crystal [Bowersox] and Lee [Dewyze], two of the artists that I rooted for at the auditions in Chicago," writes Shania. "I'm pleased they're still in and wish them luck tonight. I've now met all of the performers and have to say this next round is going to be tough to judge. They are all so amazing.
"It was emotional for me to listen to every one of their gorgeous voices singing my words," she continues. "I was moved and very impressed by their emotion and original interpretations of my music. Every one of them thoroughly entertained me and reminded me of how lucky I am to be a songwriter. All six of the performers applied their own sound, each being very different from one another. I found they all created original versions of each of my songs and did a great job with the delivery of both lyrics and vocals."
Shania goes on to explain that she simply cannot pick favorites, as they have all impressed her with not only their talents but their personalities and ambition. She does have a few predictions as to who will make tonight's cut, but doesn't name names.
"A few of the performances during the mentoring made me tear up, as they sang with such beauty and emotion," Shania admits. "I wish them all a great performance and hope they are as moving during tonight's performance as they were during the mentoring with me the other day. Good luck to all of them and see you tonight, America!
'American Idol' will broadcast the results show tonight (April 28) on FOX at 9:00 P.M. ET.
