    ^^ Ok first of all the winner will be announced live on FOX on New Years day! Kelly will probably only win because she’s from America,and everyone seems to bow down tot eh U.S. I don’t think they will give a fair chance to the other performers.I know WIll Young suxs ass.That boy sings like a girl,and the only reason their talking about him is because he’s from Britain (Simon’s country).

    KELLY HAS A GOOD STUDIO VOICE, BUT EVERYTIME I’VE SEEN HER LIVE SHE’S SUCKED. I DOWNLOADED THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE IS YESTERDAY ON KAZAA AND FOR SOME REASON IT WAS A LIVE VERSION AND IT SUCKED, AS OPPOSED TO THE REAL SONG WHICH IS VERY GOOD.

    its really sad how she has a really nice voice……but sings the crappiest songs. I’m sorry but her album sucked. miss independent was the best song and unfortunately the video brought it down from the potential hit it could have been.

  9. youhavenoidea says:

    they can get away with only 1 good song because people will buy the album neway…’, ‘…so they don’t need to put any effort into doing a decent cd.
