We have an Idol

Admittedly, Kates and I haven’t been watching “American Idol” with our usual enthusiasm lately. It seems we’ve always got eyes on other things this season. Or we‘re not even listening.

But tonight as we crammed on our recordings of this week’s auditions …

Megan Corkrey has taken our breaths away … She reminded Kates of Zooey Deschanel; she reminded me of Fiona Apple. Either way she charmed us immediately with her voice and her pep. She’s got good looks. And an inspiring, good backstory -- with her 2-year-old son and her pick-up-the-pieces-and-go-get-it attitude after her divorce.

We’re calling her our favorite.
