Jamie Carragher makes his American Idol debut

Dirty Tackle

Last night's edition of American Idol contained a big surprise for Liverpool-born contestant Hollie Cavanagh, who was sent a good luck message by Jamie Carragher and the Liverpool FC team.

Hollie was delighted by the well wishing, which appeared to have been recorded when the team were suited and booted at the FA Cup semi-final. The rest of America, meanwhile, struggled to make out a single word that Carragher said. Whether Liverpool deliberately chose the player with a thick Scouse accent to adress the nation is unclear, but they might as well have let Martin Skrtl do it in Slovakian.
