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!
