So, I do still occasionally venture over to Gawker just in case Richard Lawson has recapped something, and I noticed that the band Sugarland played on last night’s American Idol. They’ve got a local connection, singer Jennifer Nettles used to be in Athens band Soul Miner’s Daughter and was quite a Big Deal Around Here for a few years. I was never much of a fan. It was all pitched to a certain early-20′s, undergraduate, Indigo Girls level of earnestness that I outgrew somewhere around the time I started having to shave my chin more than once a week.
Nonetheless, I decided to check out their performance. Someone had embedded it in the comments. The full, soul-chewing horror of what I beheld is after the jump.
