Christina Aguilera’s mother Shelly Kearns responded to news that ‘American Idol’ is banning auditioners from performing her daughters songs. “You guys, don’t even give this one a second thought,” Shelly reassured. “Usually when this happens, it’s actually a huge compliment! There’s got to be a lot of people out there doing those songs for it to be a problem. Also, (and I’m just guessing here), after the producer went behind Christina’s back and gave the song she wrote to Kelly Clarkson, I’d imagine American Idol folks might shy away from her songs because they might be afraid the same thing would happen over again. Simply easier to avoid all the way around. Plus, shows like this–or any situation where you hear tons of people trying out for parts–often restrict the super overly chosen songs because it gets really hard for the people doing the auditioning.”
