I didn't catch her set.  A co-worker did, and he's still blown away, 
almost a year later.  I have to admit it's taking me a while to warm 
up to her.  The Goth/Cleopatra makeup does nothing for me and all the 
hype about her, from music reviews to tabloids, just biases me 
against her.  Having said that, I've heard a little of her singing 
but not much, and I'm still on the fence.
