You'd think that Mariah, Queen of the Power Squeaks, would give singers trouble on the high notes, but its the bottom lurkers that are tripping people up tonight. Kristy has no problem with the big finish, but it's a bumpy ride to get there, with more than a few off-key notes as she scrapes bottom in the early part. Simon's right: if she fought this song to a draw and survives the week, she should be happy.
