  9. SillyBean

    If I was in her position I'd feel so terrified like-- wow, she's so chill.

  10. Maeve Eisenberg

    That was beyond cute

  11. Alex Pickman

    The voice is there, but what is with some of these singers choosing to sing with these strange tones/accents/inflections?? There is nothing good about it, and it’s all just gimmick, and not natural. She would have sounded 100x better with her normal voice. That audition was no bueno.
