Don’t get me wrong, I respect my elders and all but Natalie Cole needs to find a seat and sit down.
Instead of the legendary singer being happy for the new “American Idol” winner, she took to social media to complain about Candice Glover’s unforgettable duet on the finale show.
Apparently Ms. Cole was not pleased that the 23-year-old sang her 1975 hit “Inseparable” with former “Idol” contestant Jennifer Hudson.
“Make no mistake…”Inseparable” was NOT originally recorded by Jennifer Hudson, but by ME…. American Idol ought to be ashamed of themselves….I am seriously offended,” she wrote on her Facebook a page.
And if that wasn’t enough, moments later she took to her Twitter account to put the icing on the cake.
“@AmericanIdol ought to be ashamed of themselves! I’m seriously offended! #Idol #Idolfinale,” she posted.
It’s very seldom that we can say an artist had an errorless performance, but Candice and Jennifer’s duet was damn near as close to perfect as it gets. These girls can sang so it appears that Cole is just hating.
One of her followers also disagreed. “Get real, and let someone else have their moment. If u recorded it first so be it – but u don’t need to rain on a parade,” they wrote in response.
Check out the awe-inspiring performance below, then tell us what you think of Ms. Cole’s remarks.
