America Idol's Angela Martin
One of the contestants in American Idol 9 is someone named Angela Martin. It's actually her third time on Idol as she also participated in the last two seasons. She actually came rather close both times, making it all the way to Hollywood week, but that was also where she found her journey cut short both times.
Now she's back again. And she didn't waste any time either. Not enough time to take time off to regain her confidence, this is her last year. This season she's back through as the season nine Angela Martin audition round went flawlessly and is looking like she'll do one better this year in 2010.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that she's 28 years old. Unlike many of the other teen singers Angela Martin have any other chances left. A young contestant who doesn't make it past a certain round could always take 4 or 5 years off to get better, while Angela Martin doesn't have that option available anymore.
Angela Martin Season 9
More about Angela Martin, she seemingly refers to herself as A'wun. I don't know why that is and I don't have any idea how that can help her career in music. Branding? Maybe. Then again, depending on how long she gets air time on American Idol, we'll likely learn the answer to that question. It looks like one of her heroes is her daughter. Her daughter is also her motivation thus I believe we'll see many good things from Angela this season.
Some of the artists she mentions as her inspirations include, Aretha Franklin and Brandy, among others. Plus Angela Martin doesn't just sing, she also plays the drums, dances, and acts. Likely her ability to dance and perform in front of others will help her out if she makes it past Hollywood week since it'll probably give her a stage presence that many of the younger contestants will likely lack. That said, some of the younger contestants in past American Idol seasons were a bit too staged. In their cases, the fact that they were too experienced on stage hurt them, instead of helped them. Sometimes America just wants to see a true amateur.
Do you wonder how Angela Martin will do this season on America Idol? She likely learned a few things from her previous seasons on American Idol. This year I expect her to go very far. I expect her to make it through Hollywood week and I will be voting for her week after week as long as she is on American Idol Season 9.
