The problem with Syesha is not that she's badnot hardly. But she's good in such an unmemorable way that I don't see how she wins this competition; she delivers the runs and the big notes but no goosebumps. (She hasn't even become memorable for being forgettable, as Kristy Lee Cook has from Simon's harping.) Sometimes vanishing can be worse than standing out for your failures.
