Yes, we are BIG American Idol fans in our house. Emma truly thinks that she will be on the show one day, and of course I will support her in anything that she does in her life.
Tonight, while watching the elimination of another American Idol contestant...I was so excited to see that Megan was in the bottom 3. Then, it happened! In the midst of her silly faces, goofy sounds, and birdlike movements, they announced that she was going home. A small cheer erupted from my living room (small.... to not wake up my 2 sleeping beauties). Then, Megan had to go and blow my celebratory dance and joy by pulling the "Mama card". She thanked her fans, the judges, yada-yada-blah-blah...then, she said it...."Baby, I'm coming home" (as she kissed the locket around her neck). Yep, that did it!! The tears streaming down my face at a girl that I really didn't like only minutes before.
While I am still glad that Megan is not going to torture us with her voice anymore...I am glad that she is going home to her Baby. I'm sure that he is ready to see his Mama again.
So, are there any Idol fans out there? I'm voting for Danny Gokey and I think Adam Lambert ("the Egyptian guy" according to my 1st grade girls because of the Burning Ring of Fire song:) is in the lead....by many many miles!!!
