hi,

I think the only one correct and possible variant here is:

Can you sing as well as she (can)?

the second ´can ´ (at the end of the question) can be omitted.

  ´her ´ is a possessive adjective so it requires a noun after itself (e.g. Are your songs as nice as her songs? but personally I would use a possessive pronoun instead and say "Are your songs as nice as hers?")

Hope it ´s useful :-)
