How Jessica Sierra can win ”American Idol”
Eliminated March 30, 2005
WHAT’S IN TUNE Buxom, brassy, and big-voiced, Jessica has a refreshingly trashy vibe and a sound that fits a variety of genres: country, blues, rock & roll — maybe even disco.
WHAT’S OFF-KEY This favorite of the judges (especially Simon) has yet to display the kind of off-the-charts star wattage that sends fans to the phones.
CLOTHES CALLS Call 911! Last week’s ill-fitting, semi-sheer negligee top with a blue velvet jacket (was she dressing up like an extra in an old Billy Ray Cyrus video?) settled any question as to who is this season’s Fashion Enemy No. 1.
WHAT IT’LL TAKE TO WIN Let’s see more of the bawdy sense of humor she showed during her post-”The Boys Are Back in Town” exchange with Simon.
REQUEST LIST Reba McEntire’s ”Fancy,” Aerosmith’s ”Dream On,” Alicia Bridges’ ”I Love the Nightlife (Disco ‘Round)”
