Aretha Franklin opened last night’s “American Idol” live from Detroit, and she should have stayed for the whole hour. Despite the royal blessing from the Queen of Soul, “Idol” slipped 22 percent from last week, finishing with a 2.1 in the key demo and just 8.75 million total viewers. Wednesdays are usually Idol’s good day, too. Last night’s show featured the 8 top male singers. Tonight it’s the 8 top female singers.
And Miss Franklin? That voice. Wow. She sang loops around “I Will Survive” and she looked great. Rock on Aretha! Aretha is on the road this month, playing shows in Newark and Bridgeport. Plus she celebrates her birthday in style, as usual, on March 25th!
