Never watched the show but how is it that she can do the competition with already being an "established" singer?
I have heard that other people have been on the show from other outlets (like that one woman who was on Idol years back). Is that fair?
It has been explained multiple times in other threads. But. This show allows for individuals with experience - ie, back-up singers, old boy band members - to audition/compete, whereas other shows do not. This is what sets it apart from idol, x-factor, etc. different criteria/rules for competitors.
