My face is drawn up right now, as I watch the ‘top 8’ perform the unlikeliest show opener I’ve ever seen.
Shout to the Lord. Seriously. The one that begins ~ “My Jesus, my Savior, Lord there is none like You.”
I had to stop and call my sister before the first phrase was over because I was so incredulous I thought my brain might leap out of my head. I’m not sure why I can’t articulate the reasons that my gut reaction to the song choice was actually to be offended. I am a Christian, and I actually like that song. So what was it that got to me?
Well, is every one of the Idol hopefuls a Christian? I mean, the words of the song…they speak for themselves. For people who aren’t into Jesus, what must singing this song be like?
And then there’s the audience – just as diverse as America. Is this song relating to…America? [all of it?]
Something about it just doesn’t seem…kosher. [literally, actually]
Oh yeah – and Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown . ‘No Air’. Great song.
