I saw a clip of her performance. She was absolutely atrociously terrible. I can never understand (well, I can, I just wish it weren't true, it's all about economics and profits, baby.) why people like Ashlee (who clearly clearly can't sing) are getting contracts when great unsigned artists (see Sara Bareilles) or other singers in University choirs, etc, don't get them, but these people are naturally talented to the point to where they can perform a cappella and stay on key with perfectly lovely music. Ugggh. I think she deserved to be booed - she has some of the worst showmanship ever (as demonstrated in the SNL gaffe), not to mention that her "singing" is just digitally done so she SOUNDS good on a CD.

and meoxmix, how much do I agree with you about how suddenly the religious issue went "poof" after the money came in...

i don't feel bad for ashlee at all...she's not an artist, musician or singer... she's just a little girl who's taking full advantage of her sister's fame and connections but has absolutely NO talent. she's not even cute or entertaining.
thanks for refreshing my memory. i seriously thought I had dreamt up the religious thing because there is no mention of it what so ever now.

As much as I do feel pity for her on a human level, this is a small step for the music industry. Does anyone have a link to the video by the way? Thanks.

Serves her right. True, a good number of singers fake it, but she made the mistake of showing it to everyone.

Agreed--I feel bad for her as a person--she's been through some hellish embarrasment recently, but I feel rather scornful about her talents, as she is an awful singer and an even worse dancer. The poor girl should give it up, get an education, and do something else that she could have a reasonable degree of success with. Her sister's merely a mediocre singer, and she's quite terrible. I think Jessica Simpson only started getting famous after acting like a dingbat on national television. I'd heard the name a few times, in conjunction with Mandy Moor a few years ago, but it wasn't until "The Newlyweds" that I heard much of anything about her, and since that show came out, you can't get rid of the girl.

Both of 'em annoy the piss out of me, and their dad needs to get a life and quit riding on the momentum of his daughters' dubious talents. One's famous for being a dumbass and the other is famous for being a sham. Whatta family.

I just saw the video (thanks for the link!). She did sound terrible. There was a point there when I actually felt sorry for her (like purple and ayli), and I personally felt bad over what I just said. On the other hand, she is a singer, Ashlee should sound good at the very least. Even that she can't do. And I'm not going to cut her any slack for doing something unacceptable.
