Asia'H Epperson No Longer On American Idol

The lovable and flighty Asia'H Epperson is no longer on America's favorite show, American Idol, but her elimination will long be remembered for being one of the most emotional and heartbreaking as the hopes of Asia'H to do her dad proud have been dashed after two terrible performances in a row which finally broke the camel's back and viewers had enough of her voice and sent her home. Asia'H was one of the most memorable contestants on American Idol but many viewers and fans accused her of taking advantage of the drama surrounding her entry to the competition to garner sympathy votes, when she could have made it far on her own with her voice and beauty.

Asia'H Epperson insisted on taking on the big songs like Whitney Houston's and paid the price for it after it only served to demonstrate the limited range and power in a voice that she thought was big enough to handle anything. The truth is she was never that good and it was apparent from the get go from the auditions. The girl from Joplin does not have great control over her vocals and often loses it, not to mention a lot of it was shouting when she should have taken advantage of the gravelly tones and sang nice slower songs.

Asia'H Epperson has since left the show and one wonders if she will return to her waitressing job which does explain her bubbly personality but it might not be the last you will see of her as voters will now decide who will return for a reunion show in April when contestants who have been voted out will make one more appearance and perhaps subject us to their terrible voices. Asia'H could be one of them and I am sure many of you cannot wait for that to happen. Or if you can't wait and miss her terribly, be sure to check out the Asia'H Epperson Myspace page which should now be back up online since her elimination from American Idol season 7 finals.

Asia'H, your Idol Mariah Carey wrote a song for you and others to help cope with the loss of a loved one. It's called "Bye Bye" and I think you can totally relate to it. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
