    I think taking a song and rearranging it in a unique, inventive, original way is great; especially if it does the song justice.
    With all due respect, I just didn't see her doing that with this song.
    For me, it was just plain awful.

I gotta give her props for that. Either she is an inventive arranger (shades of Kris Allen) or she has great taste and knows what works for her (shades of Adam Lambert). None of the other girls brought an ounce of originality. In that light I thought it was criminal that the judges didn't praise her for taking a chance; instead focusing her presence and over smiling. All their comments and criticisms were justified, but come on - some one just did something completely creative!

    All this contributes to the criticism (over the past two years) that the guys will get props from the judges for being innovative, but never the girls.

    I gasped in horror as I read the bolded above!!! Just kidding. But TCDC, you're so positive and do always find the best way to spin even the worst of performances!

    As to the highlight, that certainly didn't come to fruition last night.

    I'll just say once agian....Haeley stunk it up, innovative or not...all of course IMO!

    The difference for me is that this girl can sing. IMO, Haeley cannot.

    How did this girl make it, in to the top 24? I had to change the channel until the song was over.

    I know her voice isn't perfect, but I really like this girl. She's probably my favorite contestant this season. She reminds me a bit of Taylor Swift and will probably capture (and hold) that audience. There is a huge market for artists like Haeley and I wouldn't be surprised if she makes it far in the competition.
    Praise seitan!

    I saw clips of her singing during Hollywood week and thought she wasn't very good then. Top 24, she was awful!
