– ‘Can’t Touch It’

Listen to

Ricki-Lee’s another Top 40 baby worth backing. One of the most successful Idol experiments, the hippy brunette was on a steady climb towards pop legitimacy with her debut, and the first single from her second album slams her right up there in the big leagues. Fierce, infectious and sophisticated pop, Ricki-Lee has delivered the Holy Grail to Australian chart music acolytes with this tune – the local artist that sounds just like her multi-platinum sisters in the States. A quick survey of available friends confirmed my suspicions: everybody thought they were listening to Beyonce. Considering how much money is lavished on the Destiny’s Child diva to make her records sound that way, this is no mean feat. Go Ricki.

    Who cares is they where on Idol.

    Question is, did you enjoy then music!

    Question is can you see talent through the crowd. of medioce increasing idol winners and contestants.

    Exposure is all so important whether its on idol or whatever expouse mean people will listen and take notice.

    Isnt that what every preformer wants, to have their music heard and appreicated.

    Of all the idols Ricki-Lee is one who i think is special.

    Go Ricki-Lee
