    She quite reminded me of a miniture version of Fran Dresher(sp) of the
    old tv show 'The Nanny'. Same annoying voice. Like Simon mentioned,
    either 1/2 the audience thought she was funny & likable or the rest
    thought she was annoying. I went with the annoying half and couldnt
    understand how she even made it into the top twelve when she was always
    flat or off key. They voted right for a change.
    Its going to be a tight runoff to the finish tho because some of the
    guys have really good voices with different styles (Bo, Constantine,
    Scott) to go up against Carrie Underwood, who is of course touted to be
    the best singer of them all and the next American Idol winner.

    series 'House' which is an excellant show*

    She's a farm girl from out in the middle of nowhere. I see drive
    and confidence.

    I hardly think trying Heart's "Alone" is a "stay safe" move. When
    they announced that, I thought "Oh boy. This is gonna be either
    really, really bad or it's gonna kick ass." Man, did she ever kick
    ass :).

    In the beginning, it looked like the guys had the girls beat, hands
    down. But some of the girls have really improved. The ones that
    are left all have a serious shot at it, I think. Even Vonzell, who,
    prior to Tuesday's (and Wednesday's) show, was kind of a non-entity.

    > I like Savol but I think one overweight male AI is enough.

    He's got a great voice. I think he's a good performer, too. I hope
    he does well, but fear he won't. I think his looks will kill him in
    the end.

    > Bo is certainly good but a little too polished.

    Bo's already a professional.

    Really? Wow. She struck me as pretty much a complete air-head.
