I'm sorry, I just can't imagine myself listening to that nails-across-the-board voice blaring out of my speakers and enjoying it. Her voice annoys me to no end. ..... SingleGal

    I feel the same way. However, she will probably be the one to win. No one calls more attention to herself , for better or worse, that Fantasia.

    Chrelsey said, ..."First, I don't have to "look" for reasons to not like her, because I already DON'T like her. Plain and simple......."

    I feel the same way. Actually, I keep trying to find a reason to like her and try and hear what others do. However, she still reminds me of a chicken being strangled.

    That's going a step too far, and I really do not like the tone of this comment.

    What you said is your perception of Fantasia's farewell...my perception is different. I don't think it was classy, or heartfelt, or nice. I thought it was camera hogging. And we are both entitled to our perceptions without such implications as they ones above. Who said they wanted her lynched, for crying out loud?!

    ITA Lolls. I even yelled at my TV (I'm such a geek, lol) to get her off the stage because I could see that they'd be running short of time.

    Guys...just another reminder...this thread is to discuss Fantasia Barrino. If you think she's great, fine. Post that here. If you don't like her, fine. Post that here, too. However, personal attacks on other members of the FORT are not and will not be tolerated.

    Fantasia has vocal power, nuance and consistency--just like a pro. I'm not always confortable with the sound of her distinctive, scratchy voice, but she, like LaToya, is a professional--unlike everyone else up there. The problem with LaToya is personality--she needs to inject some into her singing. Tasia, on the other hand, has loads of personality in her phrasing, which is nicely complex.

    Good post, sweetie. I can respect that you don't prefer her voice. That was a cool, objective assessment!

    FWIW, I thought Fantasia gave a great performance. She brought the crowd to their feet, and working with her.

    Ultimately thats ALL that matters. How that translates to viewers, is mostly left to the viewers themselves.

    For the rest of you:
    Just because you prefer one, doesn't mean you need to trash everyone else. Life is too short for hatin'

    I wonder if she could change the words and sing "He Bangs" for Latin night. It might be a good song for her.
