The only real reason this kind of sucks is how very average her voice is. I mean, you Americans can't provide anything better (that wins)? Poor show. But I guess that's the nature of these 'competitions'. It's a cool birthday present for Rian, but I find it extremely difficult to believe that she wouldn't have won without the backing of ATL/Wentz and the like.
And yeah, that blog post about how she JUST WASN'T FAMOUS ENOUGH came off in a really shitty way.
But in America ATL really
big. They never get radio exposure and Wentz hasn't been relevant since maybe his wedding. 30-40 year old moms don't know who ATL or Wentz are. She's a good looking girl with a decent voice who sang the right songs. She was clearly better than her male counterpart in Dez and is clearly more mainstream than the others.
