Melissa McGhee Refuses To Blame ‘Moose’ For ‘Idol’ Loss

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ousted American Idol contestant Melissa McGhee has credited her good fortune to her lucky stuffed animal, “Moose,” but takes sole responsibility for being eliminated.

During her Idol run, McGhee kept a stuffed horse named “Moose” by her side at all times, which she believes contributed to her success.

However, she blames herself for being knocked off and figures it was because she forgot some of the lyrics to the Stevie Wonder song, “Lately.”

As she puts it, “It’s not [Moose’s] fault. Don’t blame him.”

Moose is currently accompanying McGhee on all press appearances and she will be taking him back to her hometown of Tampa.

McGhee may not be Idol but she won’t be idle either. She plans to work on songwriting so she can go into the studio “and pop out an album.”
