Yes, we shall agree to disagree. ^_^ When I judge a song on AI, I only go by the contestants' performance. They HAVE to sing these songs, they don't have a choice to sing their own. So I just don't even take the originals into consideration. But that's just me. :)
That is both of your opinions, that's all. The only reason you think this is because you like the original so much. There is no disrespect whatsoever done to the song. Disrespect is something done on purpose with malice behind it. She did what she thought was right and what she thought would make it her own. It's not like she said "Oh this is horrible, I need to make it reggae to make it any good."
@Battle3: Are you blind to only your own favorite? She did not disrespect the song, she made it her own, which they are told to do, and which James also did! And as for on stage antics, James does that the most by a mile.
