  • The chart position is fairly low, #145 on the #200 and apparently for only one week. The tour does not seem to have independent coverage, as the source you cited is from her label (which is considered a primary source). Two independent releases generally won't cut it. Being a contestant on a singing competition is not inherent notability — lots of American Idol contestants have been merged or deleted. "You Oughta Know" artist does not seem significant, or at least not equivalent to having a music video in rotation. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 17:27, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I don't see how this artist isn't notable by those standards. Most contestants on American Idol, etc are amateurs who don't have a track record of multiple releases, several nationwide tours and haven't been featured on a national level before being in a competition. I vote to keep. 666Fox (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 05:34, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep The 2008 NYT article in the article is substantial. The AP coverage appears to be also (see text here) and may be able to be verified by looking through theAP mags around July 2008. Other articles in that link may also be verifyable. There is: A decent chunk on Sometimes in Burger, David (26 June 2008), "Warped Tour: One size doesn't fit all", The Salt Lake Tribune . A long review of Waves and the Both of Us by Chuck Campbell, Scripps Howard News Service that was published in The Knoxville News Sentinel, 16 May 2008 and in The Record, 23 May 2008. A sort review Aquilante, Dan (6 May 2008), "Waves and the Both of Us review", New York Post . She was at one point the top played video ("How I Could Just Kill A Man") on VH1 ("Billboard; Video Monitor", VNU Entertainment Newswire, 8 August 2008 ) suggesting rotation. Contary to the claim in the nomination she has multiple releases. All that without till now mentioning The Voice. duffbeerforme (talk) 08:21, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
