__ I find that the easiest way to know which is grammatically correct is to add a word or phrase, and subtract a word or phrase.
‘No one could entertain like her could entertain.’
‘No one could entertain like she could entertain.’__

Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t we replace the entire “she could entertain” part with “her” as in her way of entertaining or her ability to entertain.Then you cannot compare the two sentences.

When I replace she with her it is mainly to shorten the sentence. To me, at least, “No one could entertain like she” sounds incomplete without ”could entertain”
