Jasmine Trias was mobbed at the airport. I wish Camille Velasco would also come to the P.I. I don't know if it's just me, but I always thought Velasco was the more talented one.
Mys sister also told me that Velasco, unlike Trias, didn't come to the audition with a coterie of supporters and well-wishers. Velasco went alone.
I don't know how to judge singing, but Trias's voice sounds generic to me. Velasco's singing voice, with that timbre of hurt buried deep inside and betrayed by her vocal trills, is more distinguishable (I immensely liked her rendition of One Last Cry). Velasco was also the prettiest among the American idol finalists.
When you come to really think about it, what one needs to be a pop star is not so much a perfect voice but a distinguishable one. Just look at where Barbra Streisand's croaking voice brought her. And who said Ely Buendia can sing?
