Idol Chatter

October 7, 2008 - Cindy Votruba
I picked up former American Idol contestant John Stevens’ CD “Red” for a dollar at Half Price Books the other week. Remember him? He was the one in season 3 with the Frank Sinatra voice who couldn’t hit the falsetto in “Crocodile Rock.” And he still finished ahead of later on Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson?!!? All of the songs are basically jazzy type tunes like “Come Fly With Me,” and even a version of “This Love” by Maroon 5. It’s not bad, believe it or not. It’s worth the buck.

Speaking of American Idol....Josh Gracin, fourth place finisher from season 2 is coming to Southwest Minnesota State University Oct. 25. Local band Bus 9 is opening the show. I’ll admit that Gracin probably survived longer than he should have, but it’s nice to see that he’s made a name for himself in the country music scene after Idol.
