    Consistent? What does that mean? Everyone in the competition had great voices. There alot of people that have great voices. By the way the audience responded it was obvious who the entertainers were and who I would buy a ticket to see sing again live. Brittany/Waylon That is my opinion. Anyone that was there agree?

    Please understand that this was a LOCAL competition! It's about who had the BEST VOICE. Tara Wilson and Britany Cranford were the best of the best in the 15 & Under category. While all 3 were good in the 16& up, my vote was for Shelly....she was more....consistent. BUT, people remember...it was a local competition, it wasn't Nashville Star....get over it!

    These posts that are trying to drag down contesants and those contestants that won are rediculous! All of the contestants had great talent. This was a local competition if I understand correctly. Therefore, why are people getting so upset and brutal to those who won/ made finals. If you don't have anything encouraging to say then don't post it! I'm happy for Sara, and would have been happy for Waylon or Shelley too had they won!
