I think she's very beautiful and very talented. I saw her as Annie and she had that Andrea McArdle spark as Annie. I wish her the best. It's a shame about the negative comments because she does meet the requirements for AI. I know some fans want an unknown to win I think Joanna has talent - her CD was bad songs sung by a great singer.
I'll vote for her and hope AI brings her a lot of attention.
The fact she got a settlement from Macy's doesn't mean she doesn't deserve to pursue a singing career. Just because she now may be wealthy doesn't mean anything to me. She should continue to share her talent.
