Tune in tonight to see Amanda Overmyer, a 23-year-old respiratory therapy nurse, compete on American Idol. The show's judges named Overmyer as one of their final 24 contestants last week. Overmyer, 23, worked days at Lincare’s Kokomo, Ind., branch before wowing Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell with her grounded personality and Janis Joplin-esque voice, first in Atlanta, where she auditioned, then in Hollywood. Jackson dubbed Overmyer, who rides a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, the “Rock and Roll nurse.” In a video clip on the American Idol Web site, Overmyer said she wants to become the next American Idol because “I suppose that’s the American Dream—to take something that you love doing and make money at it.” Her musical influences: Joplin, Bob Seger, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Guns n’ Roses.
