LeAnn Rimes Regrets?

LeAnn Rimes' performance on America’s Got Talent caused a stir. Rimes' barely-there outfit has us asking: Is it too much?

The last thing LeAnn Rimes needs right now is more press about how she's a sleazy man-stealer. Sadly, that's all she inspired by donning a retro bikini and bouncing around like a beach ball on America's Got Talent this week in a case of too little being way too much.

LeAnn Rimes on America's Got Talent

Hinting at desperation with a side of Katy Perry, LeAnn backflipped onto the stage and started belting out her new single, a cover of John Anderson's 1983 hit Swingin' from her new album, Lady and Gentlemen, in a Beach Blanket Bingo-themed number where all we could think was, "Somewhere right now, Annette Funicello is laughing her ass off."

LeAnn Rimes cart-wheeled and hammed it up for the cameras, never seeming to miss a beat, though a few notes came off a little flat, as her backup dancers did The Frug and The Swim before the singer awkwardly stepped onto a beached surfboard for the finale.

Sure, it was perky. Sure, it was spunky. But what the hell did it have to do with a song about swinging on a front porch while your dad makes fried chicken? Nothing!

The whole set-up seemed like one long excuse for LeAnn Rimes to twirl around in a bikini and show the world how hot her body is.

Sweet pea, we don't care how rockin' your six-pack abs are. We just want you to get back to being the country singer who taught us you can't fight the moonlight. Before your music hit the skids, you tried acting, broke up Eddie Cibrian's marriage and then told the world you had no remorse.

We don't need Lurid LeAnn, we want Lovely Ladylike LeAnn.

It doesn't matter, Leann still went with it.

She didn't come up with the concept for the number. The guy she was "straddling" on stage did. He was the choreographer.

LeAnn is ugly & has been that like Whitney before her is loosing her voice. Will she claim in ten years that her horrid voice is Eddie's fault too? That was a mess of a peformance and while she may have abs, can't get rid of that ugly face. Brandi is a nice looking woman with dignity about what she wears. So, glad she gave LeAnn a bitter taste of her own medicine.

Why was Leann in a bikini? There are photos of Brandi ( Eddie's WIFE) at LAVO, showing off her legs and body. It appears LR has the "anything Brandi can do, I think I can do better" syndrome. One of those shots looks just like Leann is trying to recreate that fourth of July photo of her and EC making out with his son nearby. So was this another way of Leann trying to get back at the public for criticzing her over those photos. Let's not forget that LR maybe hinting that she is going on vacation with EC, who hasn't paid his child support but who will still go on vacation after vacation and shopping spree after shopping spree.

You are absolutely right that she just wanted to show her abs. Uh, enjoy it while you can, LeAnne, because we know what your mother looks like. And trying too hard to be like Katy Perry is just go to show that you are becoming a "has been", and are so desperately needing attention. And to think that Eddie Cheated on his wife with you, what makes you think that he won't cheat on you with someone else? Karma, LeAnne, Karma!!!

What the heck was she doing messing up a good old song like that and boy did she think she was cute She is not even cute more ugly then anything else and what happened to her voice

mason August 20, 2010 | 3:20 PM

maybe she's alluding to a beach orgy (slightly different interpretation than the original version)

edie August 20, 2010 | 3:14 PM

I don't get it....the lyrics don't match the set, costumes, or choreography. She should have changed the lyrics to " and we'll be surfing"...for at least to have made sense!
