Back home, this quirky teen with giant specs is a glassblowing apprentice. "You really are a funny little thing, aren't you?" cracked Simon, after she sang a deep and eerie version of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" last month. But she's consistently impressed the judges ever since, with surprising vocal flourishes and dramatic flair.
Why She Could Win: She's unafraid to stand out. "It’s almost like you’re going to have to now scream at the end of every song," laughed Simon after a particularly theatrical performance. "A lot of people are going to love that, and a lot of people are going hate it. And that, to me, is actually quite a good place to be."
