It happens! And it happened to her a long time ago. So what, leave her alone. I don't care for her singing, just not my type, but really, who cares about something like this that happened 2 years ago!?!?!

That Girl (Amanda)...thinks she is Wayyyyy to Kool for School... & her Hair come out better than her song did, on last night's "American Idol" show... Well girl , ever since I seen you riding you're Harley on the 1st show thinking you were all that ... I can't stand seeing you let alone hearing your'e voice... you ain't got a chance in Hell ... & I can't imagine you being a Nurse & actually caring about someone..(other than yourself)....American Idol always has to have someone wild ,crazy & off the wall so why not you I gues...However , the only thing that you might get out of this whole ordeal for you is ANOTHER "DUI" in the makings yet to come...Get ready for the fall from Grace....you're 15 mi's + of fame is about over...Nice Lil' Dance though!!!

That was the past about the rocking nurse. If this is how it's going to be, then bring it all out with the judges and you.
All people make mistakes and learn by then. Don't judge a person until you look in your own back yard.

So who cares that this contestant was arrested what ... over a year ago. She is human and she makes mistakes. Who are we to judge her. The person that has brought this to light for all of us to see..... what have you been arrested for. Get a life and mind your own business.

Sorry...I just read some of the people's comments on here...OM goodness. You people that make judgments about someone you do not even know. You should be ashamed of yourself. If you judge people solely on how they appear....you live in a glass house. Wonder what you would do if you were judged wrongly. Be careful about throwing the first stone ...because one day a huge rock will come your way. GROW UP!!!!

Okay, to the ignorant slammers claiming the DUI is a felony, you need to learn the law a bit better.

Who really cares...seems to me she just wanted to get the DUI out of the way BEFORE she becomes a start instead of joining the Paris-Nicole-Linsey-Brittaney club and screwing up a promising career.

Wow, that is barely over the limit for the date that it happened. Can't believe it's being brought up! Does not have any effect on her singing ability.

Give the girl a break people. So she made a mistake everyone does! Her performance last night wasn't great but let's see any of you get up there and do that. Go Amanda. Keep up the good work, I'm pulling for you.
