Emotional Wreck Ashley Sullivan Has Another Breakdown on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

Ashley Sullivan's Breakdown Again, 'American Idol'It's starting to look like the judges are hoping for Ashley Sullivan to have a full-on breakdown on live television. At every round of the competition so far on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM on FOX), Sullivan has been a trainwreck of emotions. She cried and fell apart in her first audition, and did so again in her last.

Dedicating her rendition of Michael Buble's 'Everything' to her boyfriend, she sounded decent enough, but stopped when she screwed up the lyrics. Probably, had she continued it wouldn't have been that big of a deal but as she says she sings the song all the time, she must have needed it to be perfect.

Instead, Sullivan stopped completely and started chattering excuses and apologies. Randy Jackson pushed her into singing the chorus and she was able to get a little bit further before inevitably breaking down.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM on FOX.

Nevertheless, the judges keep seeing something, other than emotional breakdowns, in Ashley Sullivan and so she keeps moving forward. We can't wait to see her crack under the pressure again.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on Fox.

Ashley is such a drama queen! For her own safety they should remove her from the show before it causes a breakdown. And what was with allowing the parents to coach the kids in the group competition? I was soooo disapointed in Idol for allowing that. I hope they all get voted off so they can try again when they are older and able to do it themselves without their mommies. Boo hoo babies...go home!

At this point, the judges expect stage fright, so try not to worry about it. BUT you need to really overcome this; further on into the show, you MUST be professional at every level (you already know that). NEVER stop because you forgot the words; (and no pulling "faces" - it's a dead giveaway to the audience). Again, at this point, the judges will appreciate it more if you just fill in the blanks - just keep going - they'll know you messed up the lyric, but they'll also know you have good stage presence and poise AND YOU DIDN'T STOP. Try not to sing through your nose - it gives your beautiful voice a "nasally" sound. And, Ashley, ALWAYS remember - if everyone out in the audience had your talent, THEY would be on the stage. Hang in there. You have a helluva range. I'm just someone leaving a comment, but TRUST me, it's valid and first-hand. BAL, Kiddo...kc

The truth of the matter is that the Producers of Idol LOVE it. They got someone that can kinda, sorta sing so it kinda, sorta looks like it is legit and the huge bonus for them is she is a fragile train wreck looking for some place to derail. They know it will be good for the ratings since people will watch and...well....do just what we are doing.....talk about her and wonder when will she really crack. Why else do you think after last night she is still with us. Come on, anyone who would do that would be kicked off. It is a ratings ploy pure and simple and they have done this over and over again. The problem is they are dealing with a damaged person and who knows what her limit is. In my opinion it is dangerous and uncaring all for the sake of the mighty dollar.

And Just why is that Ashley Sullivan still on IDOL. Come on she is a wreck. I guess if you just want the drama thing go ahead and keep her. But she is really WEIRD !!

There is more talent than ever before...I believe it is due to Steven and Jennifer selections. These are both great singers and they know talent when they hear it. Ashley has issues and she will not make it to the final that's for sure.....she has a voice, put the crazy aside and she could go far. If she wants to contiune the breakdowns she will never make it to the finals. If she is going to stay the show should get her some serious counseling. Not real sure if she is doing this for herself or her guy, seems as if it's for the guy. Jacee is great....there are not many kids his age that could deal with the stress this show places on even adults. I hope he stays awhile, I love hearing him sing. This season will bring lots of surprises and I will be there each week to watch. Amazing young talent this year, Thanks Steven and Jennifer for being here :)

i agree with your comment, however it seems to me that most of the contestants on the show are between the ages of 15-18, you have some who are in their early 20's but the majority are 15-18... jacee is great and i hope he goes far too...
