Guess who just won American Idol Season 13 thanks to Ellen DeGeneres?
We’re not out of Hollywood Week yet and we’ve already found out who won the show. It’s Jessica Bassett.
Jessica fucking Bassett.
Remember her? She was a hippie-looking chick who did an original (always a terrible idea for your audition on Idol) and sounded pretty good, but got turned down?
Well now she’s famous (And I know this because after two years of not Tweeting a fucking thing, now she can’t stop).
Apparently Ellen DeGeneres, who’s only funny if you have a vagina or don’t like vagina, loved the song and had Jessica on her talk show (which I only know from Twitter, because I can’t think of anything I would want to watch less than Ellen) to sing the full version of her audition song. It’s called “Lydia” and it is crushing it on iTunes.
I’m not a fan of the song, but that has more to do with my musical tastes – poor – than Jessica’s talent – not poor. I liked her voice and was shocked she didn’t get in, but she had no shot of winning. If you asked her she’d say the same. Getting cut was probably the best thing to happen to her because now she gets all the fame and fortune and didn’t have to sign her life away, so good for her.
Here the only video/audio I could find because I’m lazy:
