Michele and I were sorry to see Chris Sligh leave American Idol last night. (Note to guys, always blame girly-show-watching on your wife or girlfriend.) We were rooting for Chris because he was funny, very talented, had hair like Sideshow Bob, and was a worship leader at Seacoast Church. Although he didn’t make the final ,I think Chris did a great job of showing that a follower of Jesus can be witty, fun, and very sharp. Way to Go!
“Musical nerd” note: I wonder if Chris had trouble with tempo in his songs because he normally plays guitar while he sings. A lot of “worship leader types” actually cue the band and keep their tempo on their guitar. Just a thought.
