Vote for Matt!Posted by Matt on April 20 at 02:32 pm
I’ll admit, I never watched American Idol before this season, it’s just not the type of thing that would normally interest me. That all changed when I heard that a friend of mine from high school was going to be on the show. You might know Matt Giraud. He’s the good-looking, funny, soulful contestant on the show.
If you’re an American Idol fan, you know that he really needs our help. It was all a little confusing, but the judges used their save to keep him on the show last week after he was voted off by America. Last week’s performance was not his best, but when Matt is at his best, he is the best. That’s not to say that he doesn’t have any competition, but if he can remain consistent throughout the remainder of the show, he has a good chance of winning the whole thing.
When I watched his audition for the show, I was blown away. First, it was hard to believe that someone I used to see in the halls every day was on the one of most watched shows in the history of television. Then came the audition — it was nothing short of brilliant. Watch it here.
I always knew that he was in choir and was really good, but never in a million years would I have thought that he was that good. I regret not going to the choir concerts back in high school, because I’m going to have to pay top dollar to see one of his shows!
This once in a lifetime opportunity couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Matt is the type of guy that always has a smile on his face and makes sure that everybody around him is smiling too.
So please vote this week for Matt Giraud on American Idol! It’s going to be extremely tough because after saving Matt from elimination, they have to send two people home. If you’ve never voted on American Idol, it’s free and easy. When all of the contestants are done performing, they’ll give you a toll free number to call. American Idol is on Tuesday at 8 on FOX.
Still not convinced? Here’s Matt performing “Georgia on My Mind.”
