I met Courtney once and she complimented my singing way back when. Although Courtney does have nice vocals, I honestly don't think she should have won. I think her looks are the main reason why she won and I honestly think that's an ugly way to win. Not that she controlled that but people really need to listen to the singing before they take a glance at the most "pretty" one and having they're decision. Congradulations to Courtney though, I'm really happy for her.
