True, Bernie.  But there's just something about her, can't put my finger on it.  Almost like she feels entitled or something.  Great singer, cute as a button.  But no "humbleness" about her.  She just didn't affect me the way Melinda did. 

(That's a quote from the article, not my opinion).

It's cool that so many reviewers remember Melinda and in such a positive way!  I'm still waiting for one of the AI judges to mention her name  LOL sign

I wonder if they ever will.  They tend to mention the winners and never the runners up.

       Syesha sings “Tobacco Road,” and I think this is the first time we’ve heard a girl sing in on the show.
       It’s a great choice from her; she really blasts it out. I think Syesha is going to be our Melinda Doolittle this season, hitting everything out of the park.

Syesha is good but on Melinda's level?  Not in a million years!!!  Cheeky

Nope, not on Melinda's level. But, like Melinda, she definitely does the "Actress thing", orchestrating a wild range of expressions, looks, face-to-face emotional involvement, etc.  Aisa'h did that too, but not as forcefully.  Melinda's best.

Let's face it.  There is no one on Melinda's level in this season and probably in the seasons to come.  Melinda was inarguably the best singer AI ever produced.  I cannot even begin to think "Melinda" when listening to these singers.

Yep, Maria.  It is so hard for me to get past Melinda and I hope reviewers rank her as the #1 female singer AI has ever had.  Exactly why I don't want a girl to win this season.
