We’ve got to agree with American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, who said Amber Holcomb has “legs for days” and “pretty little dimples.” This gorgeous singer returned this season with a whole new look and, paired with a voice that’s unparalleled, this girl should be killing it on American Idol. We say “should” because, despite amazing performance after amazing performance, the young singer has yet to acquire a significant online fanbase.
For last week’s “Classic Rock, No Ballads” performance night, Amber took on Heart’s “What About Love”. While we think that’s a bit of a stretch for not being a ballad, Amber killed it. Her vocal tone is unmatched in the competition and, if fans start getting on board as much as Jimmy Iovine (a huge fan of Amber’s), she could keep rising up the ranks. It’s easy to imagine her putting out a very Whitney-esque album once she’s off the show.
