American Idol 10 Top 40 Spoilers – Featured Contestant – 02/05/11

Check out my always evolving list of the rumored Top 40 contestants HERE.

Miss Jackie Wilson – You saw her audition in Nashville. Or, maybe you read about her 52 year old fiance at TMZ. In any case, the 28 year old Nashville native has a big belty voice.  Older female contestants on Idol have a hard time advancing, especially if they don’t have the conventional pop star look.  We’ll see if Jackie’s vocals are enough to get her through to the Top 20.

Watch a snip of Jackie performing the at Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar and recording “Caught Your Fever.”  Watch her Road to Hollywood video HERE.

Videos after the JUMP….

    I really like Miss Jackie. I don’t think she can win, but I bet she will give some good performances on the show. I think she is a favorite of Nigel too. Nigel mentioned a 28 year old who sounds like Aretha on twitter back when they were doing the judges round and Jackie is 28 and auditioned with an Aretha song.

    This is much better than what she showed in her audition. The first song sounds somewhat like Susan Tedeschi. I like it. That said, she needs a stylist’s help (sorry if that sounds shallow).

    I really liked her audition a lot, and I’m not normally interested in a female voice, but I thought there was something interesting about her. If she does make it through to Top 20, I wonder how much face time Idol will give her boyfriend. /also shallow

    ok is she pregnant? if she’s not, can she not wear tight cloths. thats just nasty…
    aside from that, i like her singing style.

    All right, I LOVE her voice. But that 52 year old fiance is going to freak. people. out. She would be wise to “break up” with him until the show is over.

    Have you seen the picture of him that TMZ posted? If he’s 52, I’m a Ninja warrior turtle. And I agree that he is going to upset people whether that’s right or wrong. I know McPhee had an older man, but SHALLOW as this sounds, he was a good looking guy so people didn’t seem too bothered, and he was kept low key. This guy look more like he is in his 60s and a bit rough at that. But she shouldn’t be penalised for it but I think it may come back to bite her in the ass. She has a great voice.

    If they make her Top 20, she’ll probably get the fodder treatment from hear on out. IMO, they showed her audition just for that little scene with Ryan’s reaction to the old guy being her fiancée.

    Yeah. I just don’t see Universal being interested. :/
