I love and hate Lauren Alaina. I love her because, endearing personality and beauty aside, I have watched her initial audition over and over and I am completely blown away by the power and control in her voice, especially when she sang "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing". Amazing! When she is "on" she is the best singer out of all of them. But, I hate her (more frustration than hate) because she hasn't been able to reach that mark since her audition. Not even once. I loved the judges' comments today. I realize she is young and that the competition is intense, but if Lauren goes back to belting songs out the way she first did, no one will be able to touch her. I can't believe that no one close to her has conveyed this to her yet. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL THIS GIRL THAT SHE IS AMAZING, AND TO QUIT MESSING AROUND?!!???!?!
