    Money can't buy (your own) talent - and clearly, this girl has it. If it were that easy, wouldn't she already have a recording contract a la Mommy and Daddy? She's shown that she is a hard worker, she's got more talent than a few of the girls (Brenna and Heather come to mind), and she's been under the radar since her first audition was shown. So far, she doesn't seem to act at all "entitled," "snobby," "superior," or as if she's in a class all her own (again, Brenna comes to mind).

    The fact that her father is a state senator or that her mother is a television news reporter has ZERO to do with the fact that she is gifted and has gotten where she is in this competition herself.

    I can't see her winning it all, but I hope she goes far and meets the standards that she sets for herself. Go Ayla!

    Most likely, her parents are hard working, ambititious, determined people, and they've simply passed their work ethic along to their daughter. That, plus her considerable talent and good looks should get her into the top twelve.

    Well said & I agree whole heartedly. Remember back a few years if you are old enough. Press Maravich was the basketball coach at LSU & he had a son that played the game. If everyone just recognized him as the coaches son & blew him off as being an untalented daddies boy it's possible we would have never seen one of the greatest Basketball players ever. Parents & privilage may open a few doors but your own talent has to get you through them. Pistol Pete proved that.

    I am jealous of her for this reason. She will do fabulous in life regardless of the competition.

    I really like this young'un. Will she be the next American Idol? Nope, but she will be a success at what ever she does. I'm going to have to remember to follow her basketball career at BC.

    Ayla is another of the females who could easily get a recording deal. She's great looking, sings well and has been improving every week.

    She wasn't very good last night, but she'll most likely reach the top twelve based on her previous performances.

    That was a risky choice to sing this fast song with the short notes and all.
    A lot of singers who can do the normal "singer repertoire" with the long notes that you can stretch and work....would have simply butchered this song.

    But she did it , very good.

    The outfit and the hair were a mess though , sorry.

    She is one of my favourites.

    I like Ayla, but last night her "look" was all wrong, which reflected in her inability selling that song. Incidentally, I've never heard that song she performed, so I couldn't really judge how she was singing it. If it is a modern song, she was following the advice Simon has given to the youngsters. She has admitted she isn't a girly-girl, so I can't help but think that her competition is giving her bum advice about hair and makeup.

    One of my favourites

    Ayla is one of my favourites this year. She is beautiful and she has such a nice singing voice. I have liked everything she has done so far. Sometimes I really don't understand why the judges hype some of the other people. I would much rather listen to Ayla then Kelly Pickler anyday.
