‘Idol’ Cast-Off Gets Lucky With Wife

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol eliminee Luke Menard has Lady Luck on his side – literally!

Menard was voted off Idol last Thursday (Mar. 6), but feels truly lucky to have made it into the “Top 16,” something he believes his supportive, intuitive wife had something to do with.

A few weeks ago, Simon Cowell called Menard “forgettable,” and insisted he’d be going home the next night.

Menard’s wife disagreed with Cowell’s comment and insisted he’d make it a bit further on Idol, which he did.

Menard says, “My wife was right – I got lucky. I think I’m going to start believing her a lot more now! She’s been such a trooper through this. When I’m down, she picks me up.”

But his wife’s lucky vibes don’t stop there.

A few weeks ago, while Menard was rehearsing for the show, his wife stopped by a taping of The Price Is Right and actually made it on stage as a contestant.

He explains, “She won three big prizes on the same night that I made it through one of the eliminations. That was a good night for us!”
