None of the above
Have you heard her lately? I love her music.
I like the tone of Phillip's voice. I don't see much comparison to Lee. As to why Lee won, he got tons of support from the judges, especially Simon. Casey did not. Plus, they really discouraged Casey from using his guitar and the songs did not suit him. He ended up looking uncomfortable much of the time. I was surprised when I saw Casey's pre-Idol performances because they were so much better. IMO, Crystal should have won, but I don't think she had the right image for this pageant.
amazon saples of her CD.
Certainly not horrific, but not good enough to make me want to request it for free listening from my local library. Many of her rough edges have been sanded off.
Colour me displeased when a jumping bean comes out of nowhere and grabs the Olympic Gold Medal.
