    Why is it that these celebs with millions need the little guy such as me and so on to subscribe to their you tube channel for the sake of them making money. Do they really need subscribers to fatten their pocket books.... I’m in a lost honestly just asking.

    Actually, these judges are much more nicer and humans than the old American idol judges. I have not seen any humiliation by any one of three as yet. So Hats Off!!! you 3 are lovely beings. The ratings do not require humiliation. You guys are adorable.

  • ted evans

    I wonder how she would do on a mellow song ? maybe a Carly Simon song ? like "you're so vain " , something with no yelling in it . Or , maybe she needs to do an AC/DC song and let her roar !!!! .........I was glad to see how well she took their critique , and did not act like a fool and start begging them . I think she will get better , she already is way better than before , just too much volume

    She should stick to covers for a minute until she can control her voice better. She is shouting too much, trying to show off her range. I think she needs to find to find her voice some more. To know what she can pull off in a good way, not over powering way
