Entertainment behind the scenes
Miley Cyrus might be just 17 but her advice to the “American Idol” contestants proved spot on in her first stint as a mentor on the TV show.
It was a pity some of them either didn’t listen, or couldn’t figure out what the “Hannah Montana” Disney teen idol was talking about.
Lose the guitar, she told early season favorite Andrew Garcia, and loosen up on stage. He did, and he tried. But sadly it didn’t work for his version of the Marvin Gaye classic “Heard it Through the Grapevine.”
“You sucked the soul out of that song, tortured it, and ruined one of the greatest pop songs of all time,” judge Simon Cowell told Garcia.
