    She "made the song her own". However, she lost points for crying.... I thought what she said in the red room-- something about feeling honored to be given a chance to perform for America-- was a touch over the top, maybe even a little insincere. I can also see her getting diva-fied in the course of this competition and am hugely turned off by that.

    I really liked Jennifer - I thought her rendition was very original and her voice is great.

    I don't think, however, she has a chance to advance this time. Katie will get the looks vote and Fantasia will get the other spot.

    That and she sounds kind of manly

    Hey y'all, it's my first post ever here at the FORT! Jennifer was very technically good in her first performance (Share your love with me) and she blew away all the competition, IMHO. But last night, I had a rehersal for a musical I'm in and didn't get to see her . Can someone please tell me how she did and if they think she'll get in?

    P.S. I just read the board, and it's very mixed reviews. Does anyone have a clip of her singing so I can determine for myself (please, audio, not video).
    On American Idol, I'm rooting for: Vonzell Solomon (my favorite!), Anwar Robinson (hometown boy!), and Nadia Turner (love tha hair). How about you?

    Too theatrical, too much yelling and just way over the top...

    I felt the same way about Serena last year in Fame... The voice isn't bad but definitely not my style...

    I will say that Jennifer has a lot of camp appeal though...

    The Baron!

    If you go to the USA TODAY website (www.usatoday.com) and then go to the "Life" section, there's a place for you to hear clips from the performances, I believe.

    Hi The Baron! Welcome to FORT!

    I thought Jennifer was awesome. There's no question she would have advanced if this were last year (unless she was in Group 2, which had Ruben, Clay, & Kim L). But with stiffer competition this year and (over?)praising other contestants, I don't really imagine her moving on this time. I think if she doesn't make it through tonight she has a good chance at a Wild Card, though. I'm not giving up hope!
    And I sing sometimes like my life is at stake because you're only as loud as the noises you make.
