    1) She's had a shot at the brass ring. Step aside and let someone else have their shot.
    2) This is American Idol. Isn't there a UK Idol?

    I like her. Cute, talented, seems like a sweet girl. Can't root for her though. Too many other deserving contestants.

    She got a big time pimp-job from the judges! I didn't see what the fuss was about, she was OK, nothing special. Didn't care for her version of "Alone" - Farmbot did much better.

    I don't have a problem with giving contestants a second chance or with internationals competing in AI (we are a nation of immigrants, after all). But I agree with the rest of your comment. Plus I just don't like being indoctrinated about who to like.

    I completely agree with your first statement. Talented, but I don't care for her and haven't since the first audition (I still laugh everytime her eyes bugged out when Simon told her she wasn't as good as season 5). But to me, she's not worth all the hype the judges have given her.

    She has an amazing voice. She deserves a second shot at fame.

    She's very, very articulate and, I think, must be an excellent conversationalist! Her Top 24 interview on the official site ran for some 8 minutes, while most were around 3 to 4, and her answers were nicely thought out and engaging. Sorry, been doing college interviews so I'm a bit obsessed with stuff like that. (I've been the interviewee, just to clarify. )

    One thing that struck me was her explanation for her tattoos... she said something along the lines of "I'm not the rocker chick people think I am, I got the tattoos because I like art". I've gotta say though, the tattoos and her singing "Alone" have pretty much sealed her as a "rocker chick" in my mind already!

    Someone already has $2 million invested in this girl. They have to get some of that back somehow, someway, even if it just the publicity gained on this show that helps her in the future. Can't say I'm going to be rooting for her at all. In fact I want to see the judges criticize her just to watch those eyes bug out again. SCARY stuff....
