We continue our premiere celebration with two more previews today. First off is Melinda Ademi, who was featured last season as the “final audition” of her day. Her parents are refugees from Kosovo. She sang “If I Ain’t Got You”. She has a very light voice, ala Britney Spears. I don’t think she has the ability to go far in the competition. She’s not a white guy with guitar, she’s not a power ballad singer, and she’s not country. If she makes the top 10, it’ll be a surprise. Idol hasn’t really embraced the Britney pop thing before. She does get a standing ovation from Nicki Minaj in Hollywood Week, so she must be doing something right. She also has a decent following on youtube. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
