Nah...I see her more as a Latoya London-type. The judges have pimped her so much, she's not going anywhere for a while...
That's unfortunate because I find her to be very generic and dull. It also doesn't help that I really dislike her style of music. I will agree that she is talented but I'm just sick of this type of singer. I just find it boring.Originally Posted by lobeck;3377770;

I like her and I think she's one of the most talented this year, voice-wise. Whether she's marketable or not is another story.

So far, Lil is my favorite contestant this season. I don't think she'll win, but she is definitely not going anywhere for a while if I have anything to say about it.
My most unfavorite contestant of the year. Unfortunately as has been pointed out, the pimpage she has received will keep her around forevah!
Extremely overrated. Just another generic black female power singer, nothing new, nothing unique. I don't understand the constant praise at all.
Latoya actually had talent though and had 2-3 weeks where she was by far the best singer of her season. I just can't see Lil doing that.
I like Lil....as lots of you said, she is like a lot of powerful Black female singers...but what I really like is that she made herself over for AI. When we saw her during auditions, she was quite matronly looking for a woman of 23...she looked like a dowdy older woman...hair and clothing included
A few months later, when she was in Hollywood, she lost weight and was experimenting with hair styles and color. When we saw her live, she was continuing her change and I credit her for that.
