In this weeks American Idol, Matt Giraud the cute Taurus, was spared the ax. Was Paula his lucky charm? You know she’s been dying to save someone. It looks like in a “twist of fate,” Matt was given one more week to impress the fans.
The four “American Idol” judges used their one-time-only veto power on Wednesday to spare Matt Giraud from being sent home after the hit talent show’s fans cast the fewest votes for his performance of “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?”
“Matt, it’s good news,” Simon Cowell told the singer, who broke down in tears after the judges’ unanimous decision allowed him to stay in the competition at least one more week. The audience, which had chanted “Save, save, save!” cheered wildly.
Matt was born in Dearborn, Michigan, but was raised in Ypsilanti and graduated Lincoln High School in 2003. He plays at clubs out in Kalamazoo, where he also graduated from Western Michigan University.He released an album called “Perspective” in 2003 and another in 2006 called “Mind Body and Soul”.
Although Matt is workin it, I don’t think he will make it to the finals, but I definitely think he has a singing career ahead of him. Adam Lambert, looks like the fan favorite. Stay tuned.
