  10. C’mon errazors! show the chilean talent to the power of infinity! vote for them! otherwise I kill you >:c

  11. Buena suerte a todos los concursantes, sin embargo, mi grupo favorito es Alissa & Lyz. Cantan tan bien juntos y puedo imaginar como posibles estrellas. Tenga un buen día.

  12. ojalá todos votaran por Errazors porque esta tal vez sea su unica posibilidad para surgir como banda, ya que en nuestro pais no hay posibilidades para las nuevas bandas. Ademas estos chicos tienen muuuucho talento y sus canciones son super buenas, sin mencionar sus covers que también son fantásticos.
    Los invito a todos a que escuchen a esta excelente banda juvenil, y que voten por ellos tambien c:


  14. I think we can all agree that everyone in this competition deserves this. Obviously if they didn’t they wouldn’t have been nominated for this prestigous honor. However, I think honestly the best group/duo is Alissa and Lyz. These two girls put absolutely so much time and effort into this. They do amazing covers, but are also exceptional aspiring songwriters. They started out with a love of Taylor Swift and have slowly evolved to a wider range of music. On the outside they are groomed and in control, but if you really get to know them, they’re just two beautiful young women with a passion for music. Alissa and Lyz both believe they can make it big time and so does everyone else that supports them. I’m proud to say that I know Alissa and Lyz personally and I can assure you that if they win this competition it will not go to their heads. They will remain the same country music loving individuals who have so much to offer to the world. So humbly, I ask you to vote for Alissa and Lyz. Thank you.

  15. The Gigi Sisters are three very talented young ladies who embrace their style and music with heart. I had the privilege of hearing them play in Port Credit for our Mississauga Waterfront Festival, and they captured the hearts of the audience. Not only did they play music from other artists, they also enlightened us with their own original songs. Each lady sung with heart and pride. At the end of their set, everyone in the audience stood proud, and cheered and clapped. Encore’s were heard throughout the park. I don’t think these ladies anticipated such a strong emotion from the crowd, and were mildly embarrassed but absolutely thrilled at being called back to sing one more song. The Gigi Sisters have got my vote!

  16. Me han enviado mis amigos el enlace y les pidieron que votar a favor de Alissa & Lyz en este concurso.
