In addition to her ASCAP performance this year, Gabi also filmed a movie with Nick Cannon and was featured on the Today show, where she also wowed audiences.

    Kropp Circle is the greatest band. They know how to write a beautiful song. They have true talent. They might not write stupid teen pop music that in 5 years won’t be doing anything. They write music like bands like Coldplay that in 20 years there song will still be a hit. Plus, they are amazingly gorgeous. They have the full package they are so amazing. That girl Gabi can sing too! Go KROPP CIRCLE! GO KROPP CIRCLE! GO KROPP CIRCLE! You would be stupid to vote for anyone else. The kropp brothers have been through so much in there life already. I would know because I have been a fan ever since they started music. They deserve this more than anything!

  • Julia

    Josh Golden is awesome. He’s the only one in this competition who can actually sings, and he’s GOOD at it. His song is amazing, well-written and catchy, unlike Gabi’s and Jasmine’s, which are all fluff and meaningless. Don’t vote for the girls; they won’t get anywhere. And don’t vote for Kropp Circle. Yeah, they’re cute, but they have no voice. VOTE FIVE STARS for JOSH GOLDEN.
