    At the risk of irritating the Paris fans I have to say that they showed two of her performances in Hollywood & they were both brutal. She is going to have to step it up or she won't be around long.

    I think her famous mother and grandmother are going to hurt her. I already have a predjudice against her because of this. I can't even articulate quite why other than thinking she has a chance to get a break elsewhere. She is adorable and skilled but not one I am rooting for at this stage of the game, anyway.

    Yeah, the famous background doesn't sit well with me. And for some reason, maybe the squeaky speaking voice or quietness, she does not see confident. Probably because she is so young. She is talented, but I am not sold.

    She has a lot of talent, and I think she's almost a shoo-in to make the final 12, but I'm not sure whether she can take full advantage of her talent. When she's on, she's terrific. When she's not on, well... she can be bad. (Group performance, anyone?)

    Paris...

    I think Paris has a lot of talent and I hope she does well. I believe she was THAT bad during the group audition. Was she as good as she was in the first audition? Not by far, but she was still one of the better singers. I also don't think its fair that she's not given a fair shake because of her family having a music background. She couldn't help that. Nonetheless, I hope she does well.

    She'll make it into the Top 12 without any problem. But, once she gets to that stage, I think she could be a surprisingly early boot.

    Lock for the Top 12. Has incredible talent. Like Taylor Hicks, I don't know if she is going to be able to handle the genre changes.

    Adorable. Not the best voice I've ever heard, but she should still go pretty far. I personally have a problem with people named Paris, though.
