I thought Kat's first song was just alright. Not the "hit-it-out-of-the-park" finale performance she should/could have given. Taylor's 1st song - liked it, fun, energizing, and the crowd enjoys it. Like Simon, I give the first song to Taylor.

Song 2 - Katharine just nails this song everytime. A beautiful performance yet again. Will it hurt her that she did it two weeks in a row? Did she have any other powerful performances in the competition where she could have picked 1 or 2 better songs? Probably not, since she owns 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' . Taylor doing 'Levon' - was just alright... There are so many songs that he can do well... should he have picked something different? This round: Kat

3rd song/the single:
Kat's song was boring She didn't even try to put any effort into making it her own. Taylor's song was boring as well, but at least he "Taylorized" it and made it is own, the best he could. Think Taylor pulled it out here. I guess we'll wait and see if Simon & I are right

Daughter & I are fighting over the phone. Luckily, I can text message, she cannot. I also have another landline to use, and will be up later And I will not be voting 500 times though I did vote an awful lot for Bo last year Now if it were Elliott in the final, my fingers wouldn't be typing here til 1:00am. I still think he was the best and earned/deserved to be in the finale. It was bittersweet seeing him in the Idol audience

How can you vote for Taylor over Katherine? He's like, a weird spastic Elvis/Kenny Rogers hybrid karoke imitator. Katherine is hot and a much better singer.

I don't get this 'best 2-out-of-3' mindset. Taylor hasn't given a single performance in the entire competition as good as Katherine's 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' performances. That's it. That's all you need to see/hear to know that she is the better singer.

you can't really tell me that I should have voted fior Katharine after all these months based on her performance, twice of the same song, are you? I do like her, she has a beautiful voice, but she can be bland sometimes. She's not picked the right song for her voice too often... I did vote for her the first few rounds, but as the contestants dwindled, I focused more on Elliott, who I think had the best voice (Chris too). But from the final 4, I would have put her 4th. It's all personal opinion
If I recall correctly, you thought Paris would win... so...:rollseyes:

can't we all just get along?

by the way, I don't vote based on "hotness" If so, then I would have to give her a vote or two

I did. I still think she was the best singer in the entire competition, but she's not in it anymore so I can't exactly route for her anymore. Much like you and Elliot.

I got home in time and rewound my tape to get the numbers, called for Taylor until I had to go to bed.

Katharine's dress was too tight beautiful color but it didn't fit her properly. I will watch the tape asap to see the performances, I know Simon said that Taylor won with his last song.

yes katherine is the best techinical singer but based on last nights performace and to be honest the last 4 weeks (or however long since paris got kicked out b/c she should have left instead) she shouldn't win. she over sings most songs and trys to stretch her voice beyond her range resulting in some cringeworthy notes. tayor may not be the best vocalist but i think he's a great singer with great stage presense (yes the crazyass dancing) and totally deserves to win it tonight.

i have been a fan of mr hicks since the begining but under different circumstances i would have voted (if i could have but i can't) for either chris or elliott before him to win it all. chris because he is excellent singer and i think is the most likely to be successful after AI (even though i can't really stand that type of nickelback/creed music). and elliott because i think that he was the best vocalist of the season (well tied with paris) but also beacuse he was so consistant with his performances throughout the competetion. i think that his lack of stage presence (which got so much better as time went on) hurt him in the long run.

and as for those songs...they were both really crappy songs but taylor brang his A game and pulled it out and katherine just tanked it. i had to laugh at randy blaming the song and not katherine's singing. had it been any other song he would have roasted her i'm sure. i think that it came down to the fact AI couldn't have randy or any of the judges saying that she can't sing her "new single" in the event that she wins tonight.

anyways enough of that.....

GO Taylor!!!!!

she is a very pretty girl. i think she would be well suited doing broadway musicals and stuff. her version of somewhere over the rainbow was excellent.

Kat............the polls (DialIdol) are showing that Taylor has won with about 55-45 or something to that effect........and I'm not shocked that this forum is even more in favor of him (since the average age is older than your average Idol voter).........kind of lame because I really wanted Kat to win......

......well, I'll be honest. I don't watch this show. But the pictures of kat? They made me care.

I voted last night based on the last few weeks. Taylor has "brung" it every time. Kat has not. (umm...how many weeks did she forget her words?) Also last night I felt like Katw as just going through themotions. Yes SWOTR was good but it was the EXACT same performance as last week (snore) And the last song (although) awful she just looked like she was just blah blah it. And she should be hot with the amount of work the stylists have done with her.

This I guess is all a moot point. I wanted Chris to win so instead of refraining from voting I voted for the second best. I also think Taylor adds a something a little different to the music out there whereas Kat will be another cookie cutter pop tart whose song I hear and have to ask "now which one is this?"

I can't agree with that - no one else has ever sung it. She doesn't have to do anything to "make it her own."

That's one of my least favorite criticisms from the judges. "You made it your own!" Uh ... what?
