    Kelly is an AMAZING singer, there was no need for that ridiculous dress, clown makeup, neon lights, and all the other stupid gimmicks on stage. Her voice is more than enough, everything else just takes away from it.

    she did good. The song is pretty good too.

    Lili Says:

    Absolutely love her! Her voice is so big and powerful that no matter what she sings or how she sings it, it ALWAYS is a brilliant performance! Tonight proves it yet again,! Kelly is a natural through and through!

    I thought voice great, hated the clown makeup but I thought Carrie Underwood was so much better. Carrie is the whole package, voice beauty, stage appearance. Also Keith Urban makes the American Idol great this year.

    I completely disagree. Carrie is pretty and great, but her voice does not compare to Kelly. Also, I enjoyed the neon stuff.

    You country fan, you!

    They didn’t mention the 36 million worldwide sales?

    That would have slain Carrie “who is she, wonders the rest of the world” Underwood.

    One of the most amazing talents EVER! Natural talent – I will be downloading the song – American Idol should be proud. Simply Amazing.

    This was meant tongue-in-cheek…it was obviously a huge compliment, a la “not too shabby if I do say so myself!”

    Stormy Says:

    She sounded great but she looked absolutely ridiculous. The first thought was she looked like a zombie then the lights came on and she looked like a scarecrow.

    KissThis Says:

    Flawless performance! The best idol there has been. And I’m saying that even though I’m a huge Carrie fan, too. This performance is by far better than Carrie’s was a couple weeks ago, to be honest.
