Evanescence Singer Amy Lee Dislikes 'American Idol'
Launch Radio Networks reports: EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee admitted to MTV.com earlier this week that she recently watched "American Idol" after a friend of hers recorded contestant Gina Glocksen performing the EVANESCENCE hit "Call Me When You're Sober". But Lee told Launch that she is generally not a fan of shows like "American Idol" and "Rock Star". "I know there's a lot of shows out there where it's like, 'You pick who's gonna be the next singer of...'or whatever," she said. "It's hilarious and depressing. It honestly is the most depressing thing ever, because labels just don't have faith in their musicians. They just don't have faith in artists. Nobody knows what the industry is doing right now and it's just, like, up in the air, so it's like, 'Well, let's just let the fans call in and decide.'I don't know, I think it's just frustrating."
Lee did tell MTV.com that she didn't think Glocksen did a "bad job" with "Sober", but added, "It's such a surreal thing watching other people perform your songs in the first place, but people that you don't even know on TV doing 'American Idol' and Paula Abdul commenting on it is just a whole other thing."
