WOW What a Night!!
Stevie Nicks was absolutely wonderful tonight on American Idol. So personal... So caring... and I think the contestants that were taking advice from Stevie and Jimmy really felt that... I did!
Here are 2 mentoring segments from the show. It was a two hour show, Jimmy and Stevie were interspersed amongst the live performances hearing each song the contestant was going to sing... They would critique them, give them pointers, encouragement - and Stevie even added her own voice to a few of the segments helping the idol work out the song... It was great and really cool to see. The kids all seemed so blown away by what Stevie had to say... and were so appreciative. It was cool to see Stevie in action. We've all heard the stories on how she likes to mentor the younger generation of singers and artists but that's never been for public consumption... So it was nice to hear her with these young artists. Stevie could easily be the resident Mentor on Idol!
Here's a couple of examples. First up is Skylar and then Hollie who sang Carrie Underwood's Jesus Take The Wheel - which was really a touching moment for Stevie when in trying to get across the emotion that needs to be in the song to make it believable explained that she just lost her mother a couple of months ago and wants to hear Hollie's heart in the song! Stevie, then listening to Hollie sing, began to tear up.
