They did like her, especially Simon. He said that she was like Sarah Brightman...which he meant as a compliment, but what sopranos on MdN would consider an insult!

The rest of them were basically shocked at how high she could go and said she should try opera, I think...

She definitely has the potential, but definitely needs the training.

I agree, she has potential, but she could use a lot of training, and her vibrato was annoying.

She really does sound like Sarah Brightman.
I remember one of my friends telling me that a girl on American Idol with blue hair sang The Phantom of the Opera...

Yeah, I remember her getting a ticket to Hollywood but she was eliminated in the first round of hell week.

Ah well.

Personally, I covered my ears. The notes were right, but her vibrato is atrocious....

I thought WOW what a voice :D! It sounds wonderfull! to bad she's in the wrong competition- american idol aint for opera- or even musical theatre singers. Think about how many times they say"you are too broadway" .. :P but I think she has the voice to make a career :D she just need to change her look- punk doesn't fit opera that well (sorry- but thats just the way it is). :) but I liked her voice alot!

That vibrato is just horrible. She does, as far as I can tell, anyway, have high potential...sad thing is, if she lived up to it and became a phenomenal singer, the style still wouldn't be the kind of thing suited for American Idol.
