    I am 19 years old, and it is great to see the younger generation loving this music. I grew up around 60s-90s country, rock, blues, etc. This girl has it all, for any genre. Keep up the great work!

    I have listened to Casey’s audition 10 times already. I went back to listen to Alejandro’s first audition, which I loved, and I think she is the winner. The ease at which she hit her notes, the energy, the flow and her voice timber....Mmmmm. I’m a fan!

    She will win Idol hands down! She is the type of contestant that Idol loves as a winner. I am rooting for Willie too, but he is not as marketable unfortunately. Hopefully he can make top 3, but no one is beating this girl.

    Is nobody going to comment on the fact that she had Sarah Vaughn in her back pocket, geez? She's fifteen. Her mom was probably a little kid when Sarah died. Her voice is so controlled and so angelic. I think Sarah would have cried and hugged her afterwards. I can't wait to see what else she has in store. Her repertoire is already better than 95% of who show up. She went from metal hair band to Sarah freaking FIFTEEN. I just can't wait. Her life has already changed and she doesn't know it

    Lots of negative comments here about this young lady but I believe she can nail anything that they throw at her. Rock, blues, country or whatever. Most idol contestants are usually just one type of music. Of course they all can sing a few songs from a different genre that possibly fits their voice but I don't think it matters what this young lady sings, I believe she'll hit it out of the park. Just as former contestant James Durbin did. Doesn't mean she'll win but I think an idol should be diverse and I believe she has diversity to spare.

    Casey can really sing My Funny Valentine she just has this soul about her! A girl Alice Fredenham sang the song on Simon cowell's auditions and they both sound the same they are amazing that girl went on to do other songs and sell them. I think Casey can just really sing age 15 wow 💗👍👋💯

    It’s the arrangement Alice Fredenham did on the UK show...note for note...with great success as well. The kid can sing...that’s for sure. They put her on the spot and she delivered. Put her in a good dress with a band behind her...and some strings...she’s a star! Or at least she’s on her way.

    too bad she wont win like Luke predicts, because America always votes for the boring fogettable singers . Laine Hardy?? Alejandor BLEW HIM OUT OF THE WATER.....Jus Sam . yes, very good but we have seen her act so many times. 2nd runner was way better than her. The list goes on. ....its ok, being bound to an AI contract is bad for your growth anyways.
