The point of a singing competition may be to win it all, but part of winning is actually cultivating a loyal fanbase that will follow them whenever their show’s journey is over.
That concept is not lost on the remaining top 8 participants on American Idol. For Jena Irene, seeing all the complimentary tweets for her fans makes her day a bit brighter.
“I think that fans, you know, especially throughout everything, I mean I know people experience this every single day, but just to actually have people that don’t even know you follow you and tell you that you’re an inspiration to them and that they love you so much, it’s just, you can’t have a bad day,” said Irene, whose Twitter handle is @JenaAsciutto1. “‘Cause there’s so many compliments, you know, getting thrown at you. And whenever you’re in a bad mood, just, you just read your Twitter and it’s awesome.”
For Jessica Meuse (@JessMeuse) shares a huge bond with her fans, as she believes this connection will continue long after American Idol. “They’re going to be there until my final day,” said Meuse, who performed a solid rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon” last week.
