I hate to do this. I’m beyond thrilled Fanny is back and has her life together—somewhat. But, her appearance on American Idol showed us there are a couple of demons she’s still wrestling with: bad hair, bad clothes, and bad singing. Fantasia looks good with long hair, but all that yaki on top of two outfits drenched in sequins?
No, just no. Black Cher you are not.
And the singing. Fantasia has an amazing voice, which is why I would like to hear it sometime. Somewhere along the line, after she won Idol, she just decided she’d stop singing and start shouting her way through songs. It’s not that it sounds bad — it’s just, well, not singing.
