Last night on the penultimate American Idol, Ellen DeGeneres picked the Paul McCartney song, Maybe I'm Amazed for this season's best singer to perform. Here's the thing… Crystal Bowersox is a sort of girl, and MIA has lyrics that go something like this…
Maybe I'm a man,
Maybe I'm a lonely man who's in the middle of something
that he doesn't really understand
Maybe I'm a man
Maybe you're the only woman who can ever help me
baby, won't you help me to understand
Crystal sang the song as it was composed even though when I did a search for the lyrics just now, two of the first thee results had the song rearranged for a woman's perspective.
Now I don't want to make too much of this because I sing "I Am Woman" constantly, but coupled with the fact that Crystal's first song was Melissa Manchester's Come To My Window… and Crystal looks like a girl who can go both ways with the best of 'em, well… I'm just sayin'.
Which reminds me… as you know, there's a lot of speculation that Elena Kagan might be a lesbian, but no one wants to ask her. So maybe during her confirmation hearing, some Senator could request her rendition of Maybe I'm Amazed?!?
