NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) – A University of Mississippi engineering major hopes to be the next American Idol, and Michael Simeon knows it’s not just about the song.
“Each performance has to have a moment,” Simeon said. “You have to have a moment that is going to be remembered by the people watching, and if you don’t have that, you’re just another OK singer.”
Simeon hopes his dance with Jennifer Lopez will be the first of many moments on his journey to becoming the next American Idol. The 21-year old from Lumberton, Mississippi, has traveled this road before, making it to the top 48 last season.
