Amber Holcomb continues to confound us on American Idol 2013. While she’s yet to make a misstep during any of her performances, she keeps ending up in the bottom three. While she didn’t get a lot of camera time during Hollywood Week, she hit the stage during the Las Vegas round for a rendition of “My Funny Valentine” that left the judges in awe. Since then, she’s continued to impress them and yet she hasn’t gotten the recognition in the world of social media.
Last week, Amber did Stevie Wonder proud with a rendition of “Lately” that had Mariah Carey calling her a “tour de force.” Of course, Mimi then insulted us by asking if we understood what that means, but that’s beside the point. We certainly hope Amber gains some traction online, as we agree with Jimmy Iovine that she deserves to be in the Top Three. Someone start an “Amber For American Idol” grassroots campaign STAT, as this girl has an old soul that reminds us (and the judges) of Whitney Houston.
Watch Amber Holcomb sing “What About Love” by Heart on the Top 7 American Idol performances show and share your thoughts on why she isn’t a front-runner this season!
