Tonight’s live performance episode of “American Idol” looks set to be an exciting one, because the remaining contestants have had country-pop singer Shania Twain – whose real name is Eilleen Regina Edwards – as their guest mentor this week.
Quite ironically, Shania Twain just happened to be the guest judge in Chicago, when Crystal Bowersox first auditioned for the show. Bowersox’s childhood story is one that will strike a chord in Twain, because her childhood wasn’t exactly idyllic.
We all know that early favorites don’t always go on to win “American Idol,” but the spotlight of attention is definitely going to be on Bowersox tonight. After all, if any of the contestants can bring out Twain’s true inner being, it’s Crystal.
The remaining contestants have been taking to Twitter and Facebook recently, to update all the fans on how they’re getting on. And it looks like they were all excited about meeting Shania. Casey James said he couldn’t wait to hear what she had to say.
Michael Lynche on the other hand, said that he had an awesome day ahead of him meeting Shania Twain, and said “I bet she’ll be even more beautiful in person.” You can read more of the messages on Twitter here, and Facebook here.
