    I like her voice. She could make it into the Top 12, but, if she does, I think she could be a relatively early boot after that.

    I loved Simon's "underdog" comment. I like her voice. Her look reminds me of Julia Stiles.

    Thanks, JFlo! I've been racking my brain, trying to think who Ayla reminded me of; that's it! Especially Julia in Save the Last Dance.

    I love triple threats like Ayla. She reminds me of that male Olympic skier who is now going into football: confident without being conceited; knows where she stands in life and sleeps with a Teddy Bear.

    I doubt she'll win AI, but her personal attitude has "Winner" written all over it.

    I keep getting distracted by her first name. It always reminds me of something else.

    I think she's okay. Not very impressive so far.

    I'd love to see a one on one match between her and the O'Donohue girl. Hoops that is.

    When I heard her audition I wasn't impressed at all- I figured they put her in because of her looks. But this week, I thought she sounded really good.

    Gorgeous girl.

    My memory is that the voice was only okay, but it wasn't so bad that it isn't possible that she simply hasn't hit her stride yet.

    I don't see "winner" here, but she might be at least pleasant. Plus, like Katharine McPhee I seem to recall her having a pretty cute kind of spazzy reaction to hearing she got in the semi-finals, and I'm a sucker for girls who can let themselves go a bit like that.

    This list confuses me. It's long enough that unlike some of the others (who mostly just filled in "Kelly Clarkson" whenever possible) I DO think she put some thought into it. That's good. But it's kind of an odd amalgam of tastes. Maybe it's just Christina bucking the trend of the others towards "lite" music. Or Luther bucking the trend towards modern ones. Or the shiver I get in my spine whenever I see Groban's name with a list of people who don't usually go over the top in every song they do (well, Celine is on Groban's side of that too usually, on second thought).
