Why she might be annoying:

    Her Twisted Translation videos usually involve her translating song lyrics into other languages through Google Translate and then back into English as a parody.
    She first got the idea after watching 'Let it Go' on YouTube and realizing that the Spanish translation 'wasn't exact.'
    Her repertoire overwhelmingly consists of covers of Disney songs (her first Google Translate was - you guessed it: 'Let it Go').
    She was cast in the lead role in the DC stage version of Ella Enchanted - directed by her mother (nepotism).

Why she might not be annoying:

    She performed as a child actor at the Kennedy Center.
    She plays six different musical instruments.
    She has performed covers of songs by Adele and Ed Sheeran.
    Her first translation video, uploaded on February 10, 2014, went viral, amassing one million views within a week.
    She won a Helen Hayes Award in 2020, for her performance as Girl in the musical 'Once.'
    Videos of her singing in empty churches, such as Washington National Cathedral, have gone viral.
    Her single 'More With You' - released mid-Pandemic - involved a collaboration of more than 50 musicians from 17 countries.
