American Idol Contestant Butchers Buffett’s Name and Song

January 26th, 2012


On Wednesday night’s American Idol, a contestant who goes by the name Magic Cyclops butchered not only a Jimmy Buffett song, but also his name.

At the audition in Aspen, judge Randy Jackson asks Magic Cyclops what he’s going to sing and he says it’s their choice, either Neil Diamond or James Buffet (pronouncing it Boo-fay). Judge Jennifer Lopez decodes the name, telling Jackson he means Jimmy Buffett.

After singing Neil Diamond, Magic Cyclops proceeds to butcher the chorus of “Margaritaville.”
