Amanda Overmyer, Brooke White steal show on “American Idol”

Amanda Overmyer, my favorite biker chick with a checkered past, scored big tonight on “American Idol” with a fantastic rendition of Joan Jett’s “I hate myself for loving you.” Sweetie Brooke White’s version of Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield” was stupendous. The rest of the women were just okay.
Overmyer ditched the Cruella de Vil look and actually appeared to be the 23-year-old the show’s Web site says she is. Maybe she’ll last until the next round.  It was nice to see that the Rock `N’ Roll nurse wasn’t letting the tabloid scandals get her down. Overmyer, though, is too raw to be the next Idol which is why I like her.

White now is the girl to beat. She is one of the few Idols who can take iconic songs and make them her own. Moreover, America will eat up this girl next door from Mesa, Ariz. because she is so genuinely sweet.

Was it just me or was Paul Abdul even more incoherent than usual?

Asia’h Epperson and Kady Malloy deserve to be booted.
