    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.

  • Neo

    she did good. The song is pretty good too.

  • Lili

    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.

    Amen! The staging was Horrid!

  • Ninjalilly


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

  • Motorola


    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.

  • Dave

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

  • Human Being


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

  • Stormy

    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

    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.

  • Warren

    This was incredible she commands my attention every time I see her on tv..

  • Jessa

    Mariah and Nicki wish their performances were this great lol
