Leah LaBelle’s pros and cons
Booted off March 17
FINALS-QUALIFYING SONG ”Let’s Stay Together”
SHE SAYS ”I’m human. I feel what I feel. And if I want to cry I’m gonna cry.”
PRO She looks like Avril but considers herself an R&B singer.
CON Fans may decide her emotional outbursts mean she’s not ready for the rigors of stardom.
EARLY WORD FROM SIMON ET AL. Simon said Leah (Paula’s wild-card pick) was like ”a ripped dress” — but he meant it as a compliment, as in ”almost perfect.” Well, we already knew Simon was a little rusty with the flattery.
WE SAY Her reputation for being weepy probably won’t wash with hard-hearted viewers.
