ITS EASY NO SIGNING UP! JUST CLICK AND VOTE!

I really don't know about this one. She is a truly gifted singer, but I can't vote for her just because you petition us to. I don't know wether or not the other contestants are pocketing votes this way, but you don't have to. If everyone voted according only to your request, how would Chelsea know if she's really a good singer or not? You want people to vote for her because she can sing.

These things are inevitably popularity contests rather than talent contests. (Oh, and she's at least one vote closer thanks to your popularity efforts!)

Well answer me this. Did you listen to the three people? I think and not only because shes my girlfriend but that she has the best voice out of the three contestants. Don't get me wrong by all means yal dont NEED to vote. I'm just a supporting boyfriend and want my girlfriend who has a beautiful voice a shot to sing someone impressive and show it off, and i thought my ukulele community could help me. =) But yea if yal dont vote its all good haha just was wondering. and i think shes a fantastic singer if she wins or doesnt.
Thanks to anyone who votes for her! and if you dont all good too thanks for takin the time to check it out anyways!

Voted for her as well, though it was difficult to decide, cause the other two were good too. the first one actually should have had a recording in the same quality, no wonder she doesn't get votes...

I voted for her because she's the best out of the three, and because you asked me to. Ukers unite. And your girlfriend rocks. Gorgeous voice. Good luck to her!! She's winning by the way. :D

My parents taught me never to take help from a stranger. Stranger danger! (Now I'm raising equally paranoid kids.) :p

So.......If everybodies significant other would go to these lengths just because they love them then we wouldn't have the divorce rate that we have in the United States. Good for smgold101 for loving and supporting his girlfriend. I haven't even listened to his girlfriend sing, but you know what, I am going to vote for her anyway. I am not even in his state so I don't know the competition (Neither is Misohappy, by the way). And I don't care. I would do the exact same thing for my fiance. Because I love her with all of my heart and want nothing but the best for her. Regardless of what it takes. And shame on Misohappy for stepping up on his/her soap box and pretending like they have higher moral and ethical standards then the rest of us. Regardless of whether or not smgold101's girlfriend is a good singer all he is doing is asking for a small favor if we choose to help him out. And that is just it. If you want to help vote yes. If not, keep your high moral, greater then thow art opinion to yourself.

I agree with the notion that these things are really popularity contests, and in small towns, the same winners are always picked. Your girlfriend got my vote. She does have a good voice, but tell her to imagine herself singing the anthem flawlessly if she gets the opportunity. She was nervous, I could hear it in her voice. She over-supported a little, a sure sign of nerves. If she is relaxed, her voice will shine and she will get lots of applause.

Visualization is used frequently with actors, Olympic athletes, and martial artists, musicians could benefit from it, too.

Tell her I said good luck... I hope she wins.

I'm sorry. I was not trying to make myself look any more virtuous than anybody, and I'm sorry that i did, and yes, profound shame upon me. The only thing I meant is that i did not want to bias this contest. I won't say anything else because I hate of being replied to with bigotry when I only give an opinion.

Listened to all three and also voted for your girl.. It was very close but your girl had the sweetest voice and the fact that U play the ukulele didnt hurt either...lol... JK...

jk. I voted for Chelsea. I didn't listen to any of them. I know smgold101 will return the favor when humanity becomes a hive-mind, and vote me the Borg Queen. Yes.


If you want to help vote yes. If not, keep your high moral, greater then thow art opinion to yourself.

Miso has a right to voice her opinion just as you do, even if it's not a popular opinion.

You guys have seriously been awesome. I always knew she had a beautiful voice but when she sees all of you saying it from places all over i think it will make her get the most confidence in the world and do even better! when it gets to actual game time. lol So I wanted to thank every one of you again! Means a lot. And if u ever need my help with somethin i hope you dont hesitate to ask! Thanks again! :shaka:
