The town’s buzzing: The talented and teenaged Jesse Barry, lead singer for the blues-rock outfit Skinny Legs and All, has earned a golden ticket to Hollywood. She’ll be on this season’s American Idol. For how long is anyone’s guess, but we’ll be rooting. Here’s Jesse’s interview, where she reveals she’s a straight-A student and has wanted to be on Idol for a long time.
Will you be watching Idol this season? We want to know what you think after each episode. How do this year’s contestants rate against other seasons? What do you think Jesse’s chances are, based on your Idol knowledge? We’re looking for part-recaps, part analysis, with as much local angle as possible — and we’d love to hear your thoughts about how to cover this.
