Miley Does "Jolene"

Even David Cook, who got a haircut, was pretty decent in his rendition of “Little Sparrow”. Thank goodness no one attempted “Islands In The Stream”, though. In any case, Brooke White, who sang “Jolene” (above) was still our favorite, mainly because she doesn’t seem like such a poseur. Keep reading »
