    From the Netherlands:

    She can definitely sing, but she lacks the character to appeal to me. And to make matters worse, her entire image is way too commercial, instead of focusing it on the talent.

    Too commercial? in terms of what she is singing? I'm guessing someone is going to make a lot of money out of her..
    I totally agree she lacks any real show business character, she really has come out of nowhere (she comes from a town about 6 miles from the city I grew up in).

    I assume you guys got the whole media hype about her in the spring

    I think she's great. I don't give a damn if she's not a hot chick in a slutty outfit. If you heard her voice on the radio, without any knowledge of her appearance, then you'd likely think "That lady can sing!" But, the whole fucked up American Idol/whatever it's called in Limey Land screws up something as simple as a simple person with a great voice. As a species, we are wauy too fucking concerned with "Image." Do you like her voice or not? End of question.

    Hi

    Denmark - I did wonder.... Fair enough, ya can't like everyone.

    I was just interested in her because I wasn't sure if the US folks would know who she was... some clearly do.

    Hall I totally agree with you - amazing voice. She has really come from nothing. I suspect in the UK she will be treated like a circus act, I suspect the US will be kinder to her as her rags to riches story has different impact.

    She has an amazing voice but was probably better off not being famous. She seems like a simple person that's been picked apart and made over to try and fit a mold she was never meant to be in.

    She has a learning difficulty. I think the revamp is because she is in the spotlight, but anyone who becomes famous tends to do that.

    I don't know if this will do her good or harm, but it's good for people to have non glamerous people in the public eye... it challnges the whole image of perfection. Is she able to take the glare of media, probably not, but many stars can't so she is not unusual.
