Video: Is ‘American Idol’ Contestant Naima Adedapo The Next Rihanna? Probably Not, But Paul McDonald Is The Next Ryan Adams

Last night on American Idol, the contestants were tasked with performing songs by their personal idols — and Naima Adedapo chose to sing “Umbrella” by Rihanna. She was a little pitchy, for which she was called out for, but she’s totally unique and stylish and beautiful — so that may take her far.

Paul McDonald, the bearded Southern dude with the heroin vibe and our favorite contestant of the lot, chose to sing “Come Pick Me Up” by Ryan Adams. And he killed it! Hilarious was the lyric change of “screw all my friends” to “lose all my fans.” You still have us, Paul!
