Fantasia is crazy popular in the R&B community, so to say she isn't that successful in Idol world is laughable. Out of all the idols, to me her voice is the most honest, raw and honestly my favorite. I am a huuuuge Kelly Clarkson fan, but the emotion Fantasia puts behind her performances is incomparable. When I see her perform and watch the audience, they are visibly moved by her. Niki Minaj looked like she was about to cry during her performance on Idol. All the judges were obviously very touched by her. When she performed at the Tony's a few years ago, that just blew me out of the water. I FELT the words she was singing like the audience at that theater did. There's just something about her that is very rare in this day and age when it comes to a singer. I FEEL with her.
