    SHARON BENNETT as Aretha Franklin / Episode 5




    SHARON BENNETT
    AS ARETHA FRANKLIN
    San Diego, CA
    Age: 19
    Occupation: Cashier

    Personal info: After graduating from college, Sharon did not have a determined goal, leaving her life in limbo. Also struggling with being overweight, Sharon is just trying to get “respect” like her favorite diva, Aretha Franklin.

    The real Aretha:



    Finally. Someone who LOOKS remotely like the person they are performing as this week. Twenty bucks (which I don't have, so don't ask me later) says she sings "Respect".

    I'm sorry, but these bios are killing me...

    Plus, does anyone else think she doesn't look like Aretha and looks like a female impersonator in that second picture?

    I've been to drag shows where the performers look FAR more feminine than Sharon. I won't take anything away from this chick, though. I sure as hell wouldn't be up there trying to sing Aretha. Hell, I wouldn't be up there trying to sing Debbie Gibson.

    Edited to add: I just saw that she's 19. Wow. I would've guessed much older.

    She was amazing...absolutely amazing.
    Yahtzee! Game on! We will make your life here a living hell. She's constantly in my ear, constantly in my ear. I'll see you in Arizona...with about 50 guys. If you thought you were running sh*t, that's gonna change!

    Amen to that. I'd like to see her win the WHOLE shebang. She's not a PROFESSIONAL like some of the people who have been immitating their performer for years. Good for her. She was awesome!

    Holy crap. If this girl doesn't win the whole thing, then this show isn't worth a dime. She was REALLY great, finally!!! Someone who (no offense to the others who've performed) really sounds like she should be singing professionally.

    She TOTALLY gave me goosebumps during her performance, and I don't even like the song, and I like Aretha even less.

    And...what's with the last name?

    I have to agree with everyone, this girl has an amazing voice and she has charisma. She really was a star up there, giving to the audience and enjoying every moment of it herself.

    And that picture does not do her justice, she looked beautiful, confident and feminine on TV screen.
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.

    I'd have to say, the real battle would have to between the Frank Sinatra guy, and her... but i'd have to pick Sharon, cause she brought the roof down!!!!

    I thought her last name was Youngblood. That's what they kept calling her on the air.
