She's possibly the best and most original AI contestant ever, and judging from the past winners/finalists and their success/lack thereof, it doesn't matter that she was voted off. Indiana represent! :)
considering Randy's album flopped, Paula's in a drug induced coma and Simon's worn the same black shirt since 2002, the contestants should laugh at all their feedback and perform however the fuck they want.
Sometimes it is not wise to speak the truth. :-P IMHO, ballads are only awesome if you have a really beautiful voice and an orchestra. I was surprised she made it this far - I'm glad I finally got around to voting for her this week. :) (Side note: I'd never voted for anyone before, and it took me until 11:30 to figure out that I had to enter a 0 before the 1 at the end for the call to work. :-P)
