I like her - I think she's really talented (and I'm a Giants fan, so I have to root for her!)
:lol I saw that too... I'm sure she meant Aguilera, but it does look like that would have been corrected before it was posted on the Idol website.

She has a good voice but I get a Lisa Tucker vibe from her........
I think that's a good thing, being she's like my FAVORITE contestant from American Idol! :P

Oh don't get me wrong, I liked Lisa but Lisa made some bad song choices and that hurt her, IMO.

As a sidenote and no offense to Jordin...I don't agree with the 16 year old age limit...I think you should be able to audition once you are out of high school. The younger ones get a bum deal because not only do they have to deal with the normal stressful issues associated with AI but they also have to do schoolwork. It doesn't seem fair to them........
One of the more memorable early auditions. I'm expecting her to go to final 6 if she can keep that up.
I think she's going to have the Diana Degarmo problem actually.... she has a great voice, but I just dont seem to connect with her at all... maybe it's too early to tell, I think she'll make it fairly far, but be out by top 6
Shes a cross between J-Hud and Lisa Tucker. I liked her audition!
