She deserves every view, every listen, and every single download. I hope to see so much more of her, and I know we are looking at a constellation in the making (she is more than a star). I know the desire of getting your name out there; this is her time. From one nobody, to a growing somebody; I believe in you, Jessica.

Thank you, Ellen!! One more reason to add to the 3 other billion reasons why I love you and your show!! I searched everywhere (on the internet) after her audition to try to find this song. And when they played her audition the song was being played as background music and Harry was talking over it, so I kept having to rewind it so I could do a search by lyrics. Didn't realize it was an original! Now I feel stupid LOL. LOVE her voice AND this song!! Thank you for helping her to get it on iTunes!

Great of you to notice Ellen, when she was told 'NO' I was sitting there with my mouth open as well. And Jessica, Ellen has more influence than all of the present and past judges of American Idol combined! Harry, your an idiot, period, end of conversation. Keith, I have a strong liking for you sir, but I am very disappointed in your actions.
Ellen you have the opportunity to take Jessica to places Harry & Keith can ONLY dream of! I appreciate the fact that you have made her song available for download. I don't have any experience with iTunes, I have heard of them but never tried, perhaps you could give us old timers a heads up about what to expect and just how to go about it.

Thanks! Love you and the show!

Maybe it is the best what happened to you, that you had passed by American Idol judges, as the same moment, the skies were opened and you fill in the hands of Ellen, So make sure you are on the right track... So sweet and great to your future Jessica Bassett
