Thiru Murugan(Via Flickr)Women — my wife included — are suckers for guys from Australia. Maybe it’s the accent. Maybe it’s the uncanny knack of people from the land down under being able to sound like they don’t have a care in the world. I am sure social scientists have some insight on this phenomena which will insure that Aussie native Michael Johns will be the next American Idol.
Not only is the 29-year-old good looking but he can sing too. His rendition of “Light by Fire” by The Doors was one of the best performances in the history of the show. I will be stunned if he doesn’t make it into the finals. particularly considering the poor quality of this season’s male contestants.
Lonely guys in Australia should make plans to visit the U.S. pronto in order to take advantage of the Johns effect.
