Syesha: (on why she seemed to improve a lot during the later parts of American Idol) I consider myself a hard worker and was always rehearsing and always trying to improve. When I first stepped into the competition ... I don't really feel that I was at my best potential because of the negative mind frame I was in. You know, like "Nobody sees who I am." But once I got over that, I became more comfortable with myself and the stage and the feeling of being overlooked completely subsided.
