Dear Lauren Alaina,
Chad Benefield here again from WBKR in Owensboro, KY. I am writing to you today to tell you that I have just about had enough and am ready to break up with you. I wrote to you a few weeks ago when it appeared that your nerves were holding you back on American Idol. In my initial letter to you I said that I truly believe that you have the perfect combination of personality and voice that's needed to win the show. But I urged you (in the friendliest of manners) to step up the singing, go for bigger notes and just lay a song out for us once and for all (like Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood would have). After all, American Idol is a singing contest and, to win, you've gotta sing. Now, I don't mean to sound like Ike Turner, but, Tina . . I mean, Lauren . . . you have to sing! Rougher!! Harder!! You better sing, Tina!
