MULBERRY, Ind. (AP) - Fans of Amanda Overmyer, the "American Idol" contestant with two-toned hair and a raspy voice that won comparisons to Janis Joplin, are hoping she can still land a record
deal despite being cut from the show.
The 23-year-old respiratory nurse was voted off the show Wednesday night, a day after performing a feisty version of The Beatles' "Back in the U.S.S.R."
Overmyer's fans in Mulberry, the north-central Indiana farm town
where she lives, hope she can still land a record deal.
Publicist Ken Sunshine, whose clients include Justin Timberlake and John Mayer, says Overmyer made a strong impression as a singer and performer on the show. He says she's developed a strong fan base that could open the door to a record deal.
