Those final songs really made me want to claw my eyes out. I think they get worse every year.

GO TAYLOR! GO TAYLOR!! GO TAYLOR!!!


I haven't said this on here yet, but my husband agrees that we are going to have a huge laugh if Taylor wins. It's going to be such a slap in the face of why they created American Idol in the first place. Youth will have been thrown out the window. Perfect young looking hair will be out the window. Jeans and a dress coat will be back in style. Goofy dancing will be cool. And finally someone who has charisma on stage that's almost equal to Bono's!

Tonight I totally agreed with what Simon and Randy were saying. They were right on the money. And Paula...well...you know...

Anyway, I think this has been the best season ever since finally us 30 somethings have someone to yell for!

TEENY BOPPERS ARE OUT!!!!!

GO TAYLOR! GO TAYLOR!! GO TAYLOR!!!

Okay my fingers are about to fall off after voting for Taylor approx. 500 times the text way...

I am so sad this show is going to be over!! I love it!!

I though Kat first song was lame-second song a repeat perfromance of last week- and the last song was not only god awfully written but she sang it pretty bad as well.

Taylor's Living in the City was great-Levon blech-and the last song was once again god awfully written but he made it "Taylorized" so it rocked.

I don't know-I think Taylor will win but I also think the voting is completely rigged so who knows

By the way I don't know if anyone watched last season but that "so you think you can dance" show is AWESOME!!

I've just seen Kat and Taylor sing their first songs, and I just have this to say:

Katharine, you should just give your concession speech right now. Srsly, Taylor and his ass-ugly aubergine crushed velvet jacket have this thing sewn up.

Watching her sing, I get the feeling she knows it's just for show at this point. Awwww. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was beautiful, though. Again.

(But I still love you, Katharine. Call me! Srsly!)

******SPOILER******



















Rumor coming off the AI boards is that tomorrow night Kat will be singing with Meatloaf (ummmmWTF?) and Taylor with Toni Braxton.



MEATLOAF?!??!!

That's Mr. Loaf to you!

I was kind of liking Katharine's new song until she completely butchered the Big Ending with the key change. Wow, she should really stay away from trying to belt out notes that are too high for her in the future. She does much, much better when she's not trying to be a power diva.

Ouch.

I'm surprised the judges are so open about dissing the song that they hired people to write for this show. The songs are typically pretty awful, but dang, that's like inviting someone to a party and then criticizing the guest list.

Katherine is clearly the better singer. Period.

Taylor isn't even good. I really think people want him to win simply because he's so unorthadox. He looks like Fred Flinstone.

Last year, I wanted Bo Bice to win. This year I'm routing for the 'AI' choice.

Go Katherine.

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.
