    Carly would have been more appealing without the tat, yes, both in Season 5 and this season. I think it did nothing for her. However, that's not saying a lot because I don't think she's facially appealing at all. I know this isn't a beauty pageant but I like to like what I see on TV, and her face I do not like. When they were rolling the goodbye tape of Carly, I seriously cringed watching the very first portion when they show her tearing up, golden ticket in hand. She's not pretty to me. I know others think she is gorgeous. I think she's not.

    The visa problems aren't really an issue with me. If she had gone through in Season 5 performing the way she does now, I still wouldn't have liked her. She cannot perform as well as the others can (this week seemed to be the exception), and she doesn't have any natural charm or likeability, like Jason or Brooke (from my point-of-view).

    ETA: Carly's personality. I have issues with this too. I won't go into detail because some of it comes from an article I read on VFTW (I'll address it later on the VFTW thread. I know it sounds like an incredulous source of information but I did do my research and check up on the stuff they wrote.) For one thing, though, she's put what I consider utterly stupid / tactless answers on her official Q & A section of the official site. (The Idols answer 5 questions each week.) One of them was even removed afterwards because it was so... wrong. She also breathes desperation. Generally, she just isn't right to me.

    You're funny.

    If it was a singing competition, they would be judged and sent home based on their scores.

    Instead, they are voted on by the public. If that isn't a popularity contest ... what is?

    You've always had that option.

    If they ever make another sequel to "Sister Act",
    she can play one of the nuns.

    But Unklescott, if I didn't watch her performances, how else could I criticize her? Well... I could still have talked about her bad clothing choices, but there's only so much one can make out of a disgusting dress...

    What I don't understand is how one can criticize Carly based on her tat yet not criticize Jason for his nasty dreads. I'd rather pet a rat than touch what seems like a dirty, flea-infested bird nest.

    Re: Carly Smithson - Season 7

    I think that her situation was a classic case of people not voting for her because they thought that she was safe after her performance (thankfully I voted for her) wither that or I actually think that the lyrics in her song may have turned some people away from voting for her. When I first heard that the song she was singing had the words "Jesus Christ" I actually thought it was a mix since religion seems to be so different among people. Either way I'm sad to see such talent leave the competition, but at least she left on a good performnace and she knows that she did a great job and got unlucky, to me it would make it a tiny bit easier.

    I dont understand how Carly can be criticized over Castro, either. The guy can't hold a candle to her voice, let alone her attire or looks.

    Carly wasn't my favorite but she was one of them. I'm sorry to see her go especially when weaker singers and performers are still there (Jason & Brooke).
