”American Idol”: Why we love Mikalah Gordon

Because she’s so undeniably entertaining (in a what-is-she-on?! kind of way) that we just couldn’t bear an early exit. Because she looks like the love child Fran Drescher and Janice Dickinson can never have. Because the manic gleam in this 17-year-old’s eyes makes us wonder if she’s about to blow. Not because she can sing. ODDS We aren’t that cruel.
