I don't watch AI every week but I have seen it a few times this year and, although I do think the young and talented David Archuleta, or something like that, will win (he was still on last I saw), I think Carly Smithson is the best female performer I've ever seen on AI. When she sang a song by Heart, she did them real justice, which is rare. She has an excellent voice and I hope she gets another record deal out of this. We need more Heart type singers with real talent and fewer breathy and mediocre female singers who use seductive looks and scanty clothes in place of real talent. Carly can really belt out a song. I love her voice! She's one of the few female singers in recent years I'd even consider buying a CD of.

Wow, the lies. "The record label imploded". Bullcrap. The label was fine for more than a year after her flop album came out. "It wasn't promoted". More bullcrap. She was pimped out via numerous public appearances, with several million put into promoting her. She just isn't as good as the people who put her in the industry thinks she is.

And that was proven again this week.

Why does this chick even speak? She's an idiot! Less speaking, more singing, please. On second thought: less speaking AND less singing!

Carly's obviously delusional; her label spent $2 million promoting her, and pimped her out to all the media outlets.

She said the judges were harder on her and set a higher standard. If anything, Randy was easy on her. I wonder what the other contestants think of her view that they set a higher standard for her. A bit of humility might have kept her in the competition a bit longer.
