Idol Finale: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

Bette Midler?!?

Bette Midler?!?

Bette Midler?!?!? Of all the people in all the world, whose bright idea was Bette Midler?  Occasionally, a contestant will sing “Wind Beneath My Wings” (which gets my vote for worst song of all time) in their initial audition, but nobody’s ever been dumb enough to sing it on the Idol stage, I don’t think.

What’s the tie-in?  I don’t get it.  Is Nigel Lythgoe a financial backer of Celine Dion’s show or something?

  1. I love Bette Midler, but she was just awful last night. I’ve never heard her sound worse.

  2. Hey, this weekend on AI REWIND: What the 10 finalists from Season 1 are doing today. I can’t wait to see what a homeless shelter looks like! ;)

  3. She was AWFUL. She missed notes, changed keys, and tried to cover it all up with the dancing moves and big smile. I hope she was just sick or something and that this isn’t indicative of what the poor people at her concert in Vegas are going to get.

  4. Wow. That was the only part of the show I initally saw after I woke up from a nap and jeeeeeez..She sang like one of the rejects at the start of the season.
