Katy Perry said after her performance, “Yeah, I think you’ve got levels, you’ve got a very commercial voice and it’s very sweet and pleasing and wonderful to listen to. You seem very nice, girl next door-esque. You might have to find a little bit more… you might have to just start boxing, because it’s a fight out there, just a little bit because it is a fight out there. A fight to the finish and there’s a lot of people with really big voices that really use them and you have access to those notes. Pick the right songs, I’m a yes.”
