The quirky, bold and talented Zoanette Johnson owned the stage of ‘American Idol’ tonight (Feb. 27) with a jaw-dropping delivery of Elton John’s ‘Circle of Life.’ Originally from Liberia, the singer often feels like a fish out of water, but she's sure to leave a lasting mark wherever she goes.
Zoanette Johnson was a confident, room-filling diva who wore a color-blocked outfit and sang the national anthem on tonight's (Jan. 31) Oklahoma City edition of the 'American Idol' auditions. She forgot the words. She messed up the melody, but at least she didn't lip-sync a la Beyonce. We'd have rather watched Bey fake it than hear Zoanette live, but she still got a pass to the next round because she was memorable.
