    Gabby was the most talented from that season hands down. I like all of them, but Gabby is something special.

    HA. Gabby was not consistent, was not the best ARTIST, and did not have the best voice.

    There are only a few people who can pull off this song, and Gabby is not one of them. I think people tend to over hype anyone who dare sing a Whitney song and do even remotely well. This reminded me of Sonika Vaid belting out this song during the farewell season - GOOD BUT NOT GREAT. Even Sonika sung this better than her. Go listen to Jessie J, Liona Lewis and Johnny Manuel for AGT sing this song. Those were so excellent. This cover is very mediocre at best. Middle range isn’t that great, flat & pitchy on the high/bigger notes, and she didn’t put too much feeling into such a powerful song. No soul in it. Half of you only like her because you’re so use to mediocre singers with very little talent, just looks. She nothing super amazing like some try to make her seem. That’s why she blew all of her performances during the finale.. just proves that she was NOT one of the best. The top 3 were weak in general, but Gabby was definitely the weakest.

    Jessica Sanchez puts this performance to shame, I wish Gabby did songs that suited her voice better on this show. Instead she chose songs that other people on idol have sung and played it safe. Underwhelming performance. Gabby's really unique and this isn't up her alley. She didn't do very well with the phrasing and her voice is shaky. I wish the judges on the show had paid better attention to the detail as Simon did instead of just trying to find someone with "star quality" and pouring out encouragement to their favorites.

    i still believe that she should have won. maddie and caleb were great, but gabby was stunning. i believe that they let gabby take third place just so maddie and caleb could announce that they were dating.. its not fair to gabby at all.

    If a contestant has a bad performance at the MOST IMPORTANT & final night then it's showing that they are not the best. This was a competition, you have to remain consistent and Gabby’s vocals did not compete with the other two. She did not play the American Idol game well with her song choices; Little Red Wagon & Don’t Stop Believing did NOT play to her strengths. She’s done better, but the final show should’ve been one of her BEST and she just didn't rise to that challenge. There are many other reasons why Gabby didn’t win, but just go look at the comments/dislikes on her final performances. Maybe then you’ll get a better insight on why she lost.

    I love Gabbie's talent, this is her strong spot ... why does she want to sing country? I wish you very well Gabbie. She has a dream to be a country singer, but when Gabbie sings soul/pop/ r and b/ she knocks it out of the park, and connects with her Divine gift and touches the hearts of others. I will you well Gabbie ....
