    hpha1978, I understand your irritation very well. I would do the same in your position as a sister/brother. But consider this. All of those contestant were there for everyone to judge. Your sister did her best. I would love it even more if she wins the whole competitions. It would also gave the Khmer moral boost. None of us Khmer would like to defame nor to degrade their own for that matter. What is to be judge and has been judge. I don’t think it’s a good idea to expect all Khmer to be sigle-minded and be supportive of what seems to be a small setback of her under-achievement. We all have our say and our views. I would not limit our own people to be patriotic and be supportive inspite of her little setback.

    Uh-Cha made a supperb comment by my standard. Khmer are known to be very frank and true to themselves; relative to our SE Asian neighbors. *hint*hint* I hope your sister will not take this any more negatively. Don’t let this little criticism ride on your back or hers.

    For all you haters and bashers, you guys have a lot of guts when you type and talk smack on the computer. Your hearts are full of envy, but lack elementary courage. You know nothing of my sister, yet you judge and criticize her as if you yourselves can even make it as far as she did. Liz is the first Cambodian person to achieve such an accomplishment, yet the only words you can express are criticisms and hate. Congradulations, I hope your crass remarks and condescending attitudes help boost your egos. The sad truth is, it’s just a reflection of your own frustrations and insecurities.

    This is my first time on this stupid forum and you guys disgust me with your comments. I would expect Cambodians to support each other since we all share the same dark past full of pain and sufferings, but the youth these days tend to easily forget the tribulations of the past. To forget where you came from is to denounce any honor or respect left from your heritage.

    How would you yourselves perform or let alone memorize the lyrics, even to a simple and stupid pop song, with two overbearing and hateful white girls hating on you right from the start because you were different and Asian. My sister was judged right off the bat when she randomly chose her fate with the group of “wicked Step-*!#@^es”. They turned on her even before she sang her first note or spoke her first word. Their goal was to defame her character and her chances to the next round because she has more talent than they can ever hope to attain. What you saw on the clips were her trying to defend herself. They didn’t show all the other nasty things those girls did to Liz or how they ostercized her from the choreography of the dance. My sister took the high ground when she told Paula that she messed up because of lack of sleep instead of the truth, which was that those two *!#@^es were playing unfairly in a “team” activity. No, she didn’t complain about being excluded from the group or how rude they were to her. Instead she kept it professional and that led to her dismissal. Yes, the competition is unfair if you’re a minority and you’re grouped with some *!#@^#*up chicks, but that’s life!

    The most sincere caption of who Elizabeth Pha is was when she looked into the camara and said, “I am a beautiful person.” If you ever have the privelige to meet my sister in person, you would hold your tongue before you start to make any kind of judgements. Based on what I’m reading in this “supportive” community, I wouldn’t let any of you come close to her within a 50 foot radius.

    Are all of you so naive that you assume racism and discrimination are no longer prevalent in 2005? Will it make you sleep more peacefully to be oblivious to the fact that Asians still don’t have a voice yet in the media? We are the only minority left that still does not have adaquate representation.

    Antagonizing and berating my baby sister will only make you look more ignorant if you can’t see the truth of the situation.

    With that said, open your eyes if you want to see the truth. Support your fellow Khmers if you want self-empowerment.

    hey this is me, Lucy’s baby sister and my buddies. How are you? hahah omg I haven’t even read the whole thing until my boyfriend told me that,”that’s elizabeth pha’s sister,” and i thought it was you too since you were born in 1978. My sister told me you are getting married soon. So who’s the lucky guy huh? I heard he’s white.

    COME ON, WE ALL KNOW THAT ELIZABETH PHA GOT PAID TO SAY THAT SHE FORGOT THE LYRICS JUST TO HELP MAKE THE SHOW A LITTLE MORE INTERESTING. WHO IN THE WORLD WOULD FORGET 2 LINES WHEN THEY HAVE 2 DAYS TO PRACTICE IT? I BET SHE WAS TOLD THAT SHE MIGHT LOSE THE COMPETITION SO SHE MIGHT AS WELL TAKE SOME MONEY ALONG WITH IT..THAT IS WHY THEY TOLD HER TO SIGN A CONTRACT. SHE CAN’T EVEN TELL US WHO WON THE COMPETITION. AMERICAN IDOL IS A FAKE. IT’S BIAS AND IT’S JUST A DUMB SHOW TO STIR THE PRESS!
    HMMM I WONDER HOW MUCH MONEY SHE GOT FOR HER ACTING? IT WAS VERY WELL DONE!

    I bet you’re one of those peepz with the letter “L” on your forehead. If it takes you 4 seconds to know what I’m saying, then you really ARE one. GHETTONESS! JEALOUS! YOU’RE FULL OF HATE DUDE!

    JEALOUS OF WHO? LOL JEALOUS OF ELIZABETH? WHY WOULD I BE JEALOUS OF HER? I AM SO GLAD THAT A CAMBODIAN KNOWS HOW TO SING AND WOULD MAKE IT TO SOME KIND OF TELEVISION SHOW. I WAS ROOTING FOR HER TOO. I PRAYED TO GOD THAT SHE WOULD WIN. BUT ANYWAYS…..MY POINT IS THAT IT IS OBVIOUS SHE WAS TOLD SHE WOULD HAVE FEW CHANCES OF WINNING AND WOULD PAY HER TO LOSE ON THE SHOW BY “FORGETTING THE LYRICS.” YOU ARE DUMB IF U BELIEVE WHAT U SEE ON TELEVISION. I WOULD ACCEPT THE MONEY TOO IF IT WAS LIKE TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS OR MORE. BY THE WAY, SHE IS NOT ALL THAT LOOKING. I WOULD NEVER BE JEALOUS OF HER, SHE LOOKS LIKE A FREAK.[b] A LOT OF CAMBODIAN GIRLS LOOK PRETTIER THAN LIZ PHA…AND CAN SING JUST AS WELL!!!![/b]

    the problem is that there’s a fine line between criticism and flat out being rude. and many KCer’s were flat out rude with their remarks.

    you don’t have to love the girl just because she’s khmer, but give her some friggin credit for making it to Hollywood!

    Elizabeth needs to take a Communication class, and listen to more songs. That song is a pretty popular oldies. If you love singing and music, there’s no excuse for not being able to learn a simple song like that. Especially when you’re only required to learn your part.
    I was rooting for her, as I can see that she can sing. What’s with the thick dark eyeliner all around her eyes? She should stop hanging around older Khmer singers/Karaoke stars.
