It's entirely possible that she could go really far. I'm still baffled by last year's Cassadee Pope win, she also seemed very boring and generic to me but somehow took it all, so really anything is possible.
Personally, I'm rooting for Midas Whale even though they have no shot in hell at winning.
It is a TV show, by their premise they can't provide the outlier during the cattle call auditions so they push the quirky and the sob stories up front when the show is strongest. When the viewers start voting they will vote for the generic person who comes closest to mass cross over appeal. And a few of those may have an edge because their sob story was featured in earlier rounds.
