Fox and Los Angeles Times
Makes us think of: Christina Aguilera. This spritely singer from Tennessee is petite in stature but has a big voice -- just like Xtina. And though she has fresh-scrubbed, all-American looks, her boozy-floozy voice reminds us of some of Christina's more suggestive performances. Here's hoping Alexis is as adept as Christina at reinventing her sound as the season goes on. We love what she's giving us, but we want to be surprised. Also, like Christina, she's got impeccable taste in hats.
