What does she have that I'm missing?  For me she's no more than average at best.  Her singing voice is weak and she sings off key very often.  And don't get me started on her Cockney accent, she sounded more Scandinavian than Cockney.

Am I missing something here?  They all seem to like her but I can't understand why.  She seems nice, but is that enough to give her the part?

Don't worry Steph - there are plenty of us 'missing it'!!  I think she is an interesting amateur - turned down by drama schools for a good reason, sings out of side of mouth, now appearing pretty cocky - toooooooo many compliments!

I find her cocky and annoying too.  Her voice is the weakest of all the girls left but she will probably be in the final, they seem to adre her for some strange reason.

I am so glad I am not the only one out there who actually thinks Jessie is quite ordinary.  Yes she has got a good voice for someone so young but like someone said in another comment she is struggling with the accent and also the acting.  I feel the way ALW and the panel are though I am sure she will make the final as she can't seem to do any wrong in their eyes - but then again they wont be the ones paying 60 plus to watch her!!!

I'm afraid that I too am unable to see what's getting the panel so excited.  Her voice is Ok (especially for her age) but her acting!  No way on earth could she sustain a cockney accent and that was made so clear in the scene with the girls in the real Queen Vic.  I thought Barbara Windsor was being very diplomatic when she said that Jessie panicked over the accent.  her posture and dancing are really below the standard required and the singing out of the side of the mouth thing - please just stop!

She needs to college for three years and then try again.  I think her true home will be in clubs and cruis ships belting out big torch songs, not playing leads on the West End.  It's worth remembering that there is always a reason why people do not get acepted to drama schools.

The thing that baffled me last night, was that her acting is, and was, blatantly terrible in the task, and yet DVO and the Panel singled her out as being the best at it?!

She's not a good actress and she's a fairly weak singer as well! I can honestly see why drama schools didn't accept her, they said Sam had nothing behind the eyes, neither does Jessie!

I'm sure she's a lovely person.

I hated how ALW said "I'm not going to single ANYONE out but, Jessie (is my love slave)."

She's certainly the worst of the girls left in the competition.  If there's justice in the world Jesse and Ashley should be the next one to go.
