Hello Ms. Burress. This song "Mighty O" was actually fire and I would like to see the full video of you performing this song. This is one that should be out there in some capacity whether You or Ms. Garrison actually perform it!

..sometimes both sound great. My husband wants to know why they both can't win or you have something for the other on the side.  We love your show. I watch your interaction and I"ve been on point so far as to which one you will pick.

Kandi, I have to comment, about Garrison....at 42, wouldn't it be great if we could rewind back 25 years? But we can't, so why did she try it? I can only wonder what kind of artist we could have really seen, had she come prepared age appropriately...the song and on stage behavior as well as her outfit was clearly an ICarly theme...Nickolodeonisk.....I felt like she was cheated out of a real opportunity, and we were cheated out of seeing her become an artist....she will have to change the character up at her age....she will be using hormone replacement therapy soon...huhhhh? It all hurt my head.....the guy Kevin was good...but at 28.... is that still young enough in your industry?? I used to laugh at the idea of American Idol letting so many teenagers through their competition, then I realized....uhhh duhhh...it takes a good ten years to take hold of your talent and watch it grow....

Hey Kandi! You are totally blessed in more ways than one girl! I have always admired you and your gift of music. I think your final decision has been spot on until now. I mean Kevin is talented, however I think that Garrison should have won this one. Seriously! Her song was AMAZINGLY AMAZING!! And her transformation and delivery was on point. I mean yea, she dropped the mic, but she delivered the song plus she played the heck outa those drums. I mean hey! I'm disappointed.

You are such a great writer. With that being said, I will be buying Kevin's song! I rewound the DVR four times after his performance! Love it! I love that he is such a "regular guy." The song is so catchy, so simple in it's message that I find myself singing it over and over. I think you pitched him a perfect record and he knocked it out of the park for you and your team! Congrats on the success of your show!

Kandi, once again, you made it happen.  I really didn't like Garrison's song.  Her voice was not made for Rock.  I do, however, think that her transformation was great.  She really looked beautiful.  She looked as if she was in her twenties in lieu of 42.  She could dance, but she didn't let go.  She can work on her herself and try again.  She should start in the clubs first.  I thought that Kevin sounded like a mixture of Chris Brown and Usher.   Keep it coming.

I have watched all the shows and I really feel that this was your very best.  The song is great and Kevin's voice is perfect for this song.  The music video looks like he is a seasoned pro.

Great, great, great job, this was the BOMB. 

Great to finally hear music that is pure at heart.  This proves that you don't have to have people in various stages of undress or explicit language to make good music.  I cried when he won. 

Can't wait to buy the CD. 

Kevin, you do have swag....Obama swag.  Smart, talented and cute.

Kandi you rock, and your team brought it with this one.

I LOVED tonight's Kandi Factory! This season is MUCH better than last season's shows. You and your crew are amazing! Also watched you on WWHL tonight and I'm pissed that Andy took liberty to put Riley in walmart twerker's vid. I plan on tweeting him. Love ma' shady queen but he's gonna' catch some shady boots behind shady stunts like that.
