Krysti Jewel – Mama Knows Best by Jesse J – She and her family are the BIGGEST AMERICAN IDOL FANS EVER. They have taped every, show, been to the finale shows, the tour. They are ONE OF US ONE OF US ONE OF US, if you know what I mean. The parents freak out when Lee DeWyze comes out to meet them. The parents are literally the biggest Idol stans EVER.  He assures them the judges WANT her to do well. Don’t be nervous! When Ryan allows the parents in the room to watch their daughter’s audition. they freak out.  Krysti is a little strident on those top notes. And a tiny bit under pitch. She needs voice lessons. Then comes the weird scatting. Loud is not the new good, kid! Harry calls it clear and loud. That’s one way to describe it. Nevertheless, 3 yesses.
