Hi Metz,
Thanks for your visit :)
We don´t get to see the show "American Idol" here but I´ve read so much about it in Marzie´s (and other) blog that I´m almost familiar with all the singers :)
This singer has a sweet voice, good & actual pick for MM.

You don´t mind if I post the "Save the world" tag in my blog "Contry home", do you?
And sorry to be so know me and tags, lol.
Good week ahead for you too.
