Unlike many of the American Idol 2014 finalists we’ve profiled so far, Jessica Meuse (or “Pinky” as we call her in our Idol chat) had quite a presence online even before the show. Now that she made the season 13 Top 10, of course, her fans are happy to have so much info about her out there to ponder!
We found Jessica’s photos, videos, and music all over the Internet just waiting for us to drop by and check them out. Jess wants to be seen and heard, which is never a bad thing when your goal is to become an American Idol winner, right? Heck, Jess even has a MySpace page. Now that’s dedication to the cause!

Jessica Meuse Background
On her Facebook page, Jess “Velociraptor” Meuse has a map dotted with 34 tags of all the places she’s lived and been, from Nashville, TN to Mobile, AL. She was apparently born in Round Rock, Texas, but now lives in Slapout, Alabama. This interestingly named small town is close to Birmingham, AL area, where Jess played out at a local singer/songwriter night right before the American Idol season 13 premiere.
Also on her Facebook profile, Jessica Meuse lists herself as “in a relationship with Steven Atkins” and ha lots of cute pics of herself with pink-streaked hair cuddled up with what we assume is her boyfriend. Many of Jess’ photos feature her showing off various hair colors from fiery red, to blond-streaked brunette, to full-on radioactive pink. We guess that’s just her thing.
We also learned from her Facebook page that Jess is a fan of sports, including the Carolina RailHawks, the Dallas Cowboys, and the University of Auburn Tigers. We’re not sure if perhaps she is/was a student at the school, but she does have several links to it in various ways from her profile, so we’re thinking that might be a good bet.
Jess is also fond of scary movies like Jeepers Creepers and Alien, likes TV Shows like Supernatural, America’s Got Talent, American Idol and Duck Dynasty, and reads everything from The Hunger Games to The Heroin Diaries. She’s also a gamer girl into Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy, and Ghost Recon, among other titles.
Among her musical likes, Jess Meuse lists a lot of indie artists and a exhibits a wide range of tastes. She is a fan of such artists as Bill Hudson, Graveyard Hill, David Cook, Alabama Shakes, Chuck Berry, Otis Redding, and Phil Collins. In particular, however, she seems to have quite a taste for heavy metal. Although it appears to be more about listening to it than playing it, from the videos we’ve seen.
On her official Jessica Meuse fan page, the singer/songwriter says that she was 10 years old when she first sang in public, and “after that, I knew music was all I wanted to do in life.” She also says she plays the guitar, violin, and piano. As for her style of music, Jess says “it’s a hybrid of Indie/Alternative/Pop/Rock/Country.” If you want to hear more of what that sounds like, you can hear a lot more of Jess on her YouTube channel and on her ReverbNation page.
American Idol should carefully scrutinize contestants deleted and current social pages because I have seen posts that do not represent a good role model. American Idol needs to ask why the contestant removed their old pages and started new ones. And why they un followed their friends and family.
Too stuck on herself for my liking. Needs to lighten up.
Oh come on PatC chill, its not her character were voting for ,its her music talents, and writing talents, her vocal talents, and she can play a verity of instruments too, so please, see it with in yourself ,too over look that part,
Jess has an attitude , but there is no denying she can sing ! I liked her version of White Flag better than the original! It could be a crossover song!
To be honest, I was a skeptic of Jessica Meuse from the first Hollywood week when American Idol depicted her as some sort of “diva” without a heart at group week. Whether it was real or not she redeemed all of it Wednesday night with this beautiful performance. It literally brought tears to my eyes and I couldn’t believe the first somewhat negative response from J-Lo (I had to pause and write this so I’m not sure what any of the other judges said). I usually have an eye for talent (Maroon 5 was nobody when I saw what they had and spread the word back in the late 90s) and Jessica – go girl go. I believe in you and your talent. Thanks so much!!!
Also, there’s an issue with google votes letting those of us who have business accounts not getting to vote because we can’t switch to our personal accounts online through the AI link. Please fix this as it seems like a scam if you limit access to non-business people. Thank you.
I like her voice best out of all the girls singing, but she has an atitude.
I was right with Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkston, mist out on Candies clover, by a hair, cause my guess was Kree Harrison, and nailed it with Scotty McCurry. And my guess is that if Jessica holds her composer trough these next few rounds she’ll end up on top, she’s got style, Talent, Rhythm, her performance are really believable, like “Keith says” tell your story and make the audience believe that you belong with the great one. I’d vote for you but since am Canadian am out
She’s good, but Dexter has my vote.
Dexter is OK, but for me it’s Jessica, or Caleb.
I agree with patc. She is stuck on herself and has no personality. I saw her in the group contest before Hollywood and she was cocky with the other contestants. She thought she was all that. I didn’t like her from the beginning and I truly hope she doesn’t win. It would be a big mistake!!!!!!
She wants to win. Too bad that spoiled brat had to have her mother there.
Its a talent show come on. She very talented and she’s actually growing on the show. She gets better every week on her stag presents. Jess & caleb could win it all !!!!!!
Good luck tonight Jess… pull that hair back .. and let it rip !
I thought you sang Jolene … great!
yeah patc get over yourself. She is great and she has a lot of talent I think this is really wrong.
