Melissa McGhee is a Mermaid

Her fellow Idols get to tour the country…

…while Season Five’s 12th place finisher Melissa McGhee will perform live and make her debut as a Weeki Wachee mermaid at Weeki Wachee Springs, the “only city of live mermaids” in Wachee, FL. She’ll perform June 10 at the “Hurricane Expo.”  According to the website:

“The “World Famous” Mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs have been entertaining audiences since 1947. They perform two shows daily in the only underwater theater of it’s kind! There is no tank or aquarium. The theater is built into the spring itself and the mermaids perform in this natural and pristine spring while visitors enjoy the show 16-feet below the surface of the water!”

Very kitschy. Hee.
