geez....I know MANY of you out in blogland are not watchers of American Idol...
BUT I am a watcher....WAIT!!!! don't tune out yet, this blog is not about American Idol, but a man that was on the show about 5 minutes ago. He touched my heart.
This gentleman was in his mid 50's. The age limit for the show is 28.
His story was that his life long love of twenty years wanted him to be able to go on the show, they were collecting signatures to petition so he could be on the show, and during this time she was found to have cancer.
One of the things that uplifted her daily while she was sick, was when he came in with more signatures.
Two days before the audition she passed away, he went to the A.I. audition as a way to do something she would have wanted him to do. He did it for her and he then sang a song for her...
Of course Paula cried (that is a given)
That part that touched me was after he walked out...he stated - he was a winner!
I loved the attitude! To me he was the best one of the entire show.
Am I corny? YES and I love corny, mushy stuff like that.
