I always wonder what people like Chris and Taylor are thinking while they're singing those cheesy group medleys. Surely they're a bit embarrassed, no? Chris should be the front man of a band singing original songs.



the fact that he would even go out for American Idol is a little strange, because if he's suck a "rocker"...? He's just going to end up singing cheesy love songs like Bo Bice.

Bo won't have to do the cheese for much longer... Once they let him start doing his own material, it will get MUCH better than "the real thing" (gods, that song sucks!)

Good news if this is true. Chris may join Fuel! I guess they are having problems with the lead singer. He has to wait until his contract is up with Idol this summer. So that is what they are saying now and on Extra. Idol board is going crazy today. I love Fuel anyway and that would be way cool with me.



We shall see if it is true.

I like Katherine even though she is somewhat bland and boring she has a charm about her. She has had some good performances, but I do think that her musical career won't be one that I'll be following. She did make some mistakes this week and I thought she'd be the one who wouldn't get enough votes to stay on.



Chris was good, but for me he was pretty much a one trick pony. Take him out of his element and he don't think he does that well. I do think that he'll be a great frontman for some band, but overall I get tired of that style of rock vocal rather quickly. I'll probably enjoy his songs if I hear them every once in a while, but while he's in heavy rotation I'll probably get bored quickly.



I was surprised that Elliot wasn't in the bottom two this week. I thought his songs just didn't hit the mark and the vocals were off at times.



I'm happy that Taylor is in the final three, but I also wish that he'd shown a little more range. I'm putting my money on Taylor to come out on top unless he really screws up. He's certainly been the most entertaining one on the show even if his vocals didn't always hit the mark.

Over at VoteForTheWorst they refer to Chris as "Penis With Ears." I thought he'd make it to the final two, with Taylor. Katharine really deserved to go. DialIdol correctly predicted this outcome, though--Chris being booted, Katharine in third, Taylor on top. So this kind of disproves any conspiracies people may have.



I hope Chris does join Fuel, that would be pretty cool.



I've always liked Elliot, but I (still) hope Taylor wins. He's just so entertaining, and so anti-Idol (in terms of looks/personality) it would be awesome to have him win. GHD! GHD! GHD!

So I guess everyone's completely lost interest? What did you think of last night?



Even though I'm not usually interested in Katherine I thought her "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was actually quite good. Otherwise I thought everything was fine but not earth-shattering or anything. I hope Taylor wins just because he's such a wierdo...

Katharine shined last night with "Over the Rainbow" but here other two songs didn't work as well. I could see her getting voted off, but I think that Elliot was off key in places on all of his songs. He seemed to be better at the beginning of the competition, but maybe that was because we had worse singers to compare him to. Taylor kicked it last night and I think he was the clear winner of the evening.



Overall, I think Katharine has the best voice of the three remaining contestants, but she doesn't have the confidence to let her voice out naturally. As the judges have commented she pushes too hard and over sings some of her songs. I think she'll be better after the show is over, but unless she does some interesting songs, I doubt I'll be listening to her.



Taylor is a very good entertainer. He is more than just a singer. Sometimes he lets his entertainment side get the best of him and lets his vocals slide, but he's never boring. I think it will be interesting to see what comes out of him when he's in a recording studio and can sing without having to perform.



I hope the final is Katharine and Taylor, but I could see Elliot make it in the final with either of them.

Go Soul Patrol. I was glad that Taylor got to sing Joe Cocker. Loved it. Katherine was good on "Over The Raindbow." I thought Elliot did good with "Open Arms."



I tried the whole two hours to vote and I could never get through.



I have no idea who with be in the final, cuz last week was such a shock, so who knows. It's just weird.

I'm leaning towards Taylor as the fav. Katherine was really good with 'over the rainbow'. I'm afraid Elliot might go tonight, but I'm still hoping it will be Katherine.

Soul Patrol



Thank gawd Taylor is there in the final. I felt bad for Elliot. I am not a big fan, but Kat (spoiled) Kat should have been gone. Elliot always has tears in his eyes. I think he is such a nice guy, just was not my favorite.



I rather it be Taylor and Elliot, than Kat and Taylor. Oh well.



I watched everything last week on FOX with Chris and other channels. Simon and Ryan were on Jay Leno the other night. They were so funny. Simon said that Taylor is the big favorite. Guess he was right this week.



Chris was my first and soul patrol was my second. The votes were so darn close though!

I swear if Kat wins, I'm not watching AI next year!



Well, maybe. If I do, I'm not going to get so 'involved'.



Please let Taylor, win. Please, please, please!

I thought Katherine did really well tonight. I really loved the first song and the second one sent shivers down my spine.



I actually thought that Taylor looked a little nervous and was a little pitchy. But I still think he should win! Go GHD!!!!

I only got in about 20 votes or so. GAWD, Chris should have been in the finale! Tomorrow night will be so cool when they all perform.



Go GHD And Simon says you would never make it this far. Whatever. And he does that too.

I tried to get through but had no luck at all! Of course, I only last about half an hour and then fell asleep. Which probably explains why I'm up at 3:36 a.m. typing on VB. Anyway, I thought Katherine was ok, slaughtered that last song. Taylor was great on the first and last songs, just ok on the second one. I hope he wins but I'm telling myself he's not so I'm not disappointed if Katherine wins. I'm such a pessimist but it's the only way I can make myself not crazy over it. I need to be prepared for the worst. I will be mad if Kat wins!!! Sometimes I think when the judges have a clear favorite, it has an opposite effect and makes the fans of the other contestant try harder and vote more to get them in.

Wooop there it is!!! The best surprise was Prince!!!!! I was so shocked for him to perform and be there! So cool!



Did Ryan say that they had more votes than a president election!



What did Clay do to his hair.



And of course Bucky. I did not really care for the song that Chris sang with Live. But who cares. I heart Chris.



So glad Taylor did it!!!!

More than 63 million votes were cast, "more than any president in the history of our country has received," Seacrest said.



So I knew I was not dreaming on this one.

Ahhh. A big relief indeed. I don't know why I was so worried. Katherine didn't look that disappointed. I heard afterwards that she didn't expect to win. There's a rumor going around that she was asked to sing at Tom and Katie's wedding.

I am soooooo THRILLED that Taylor won! What a genuine guy. He may be odd, but he has talent and a terrific personality. Katherine was inconsistent and, although I liked her in the beginning, she began to rub me the wrong way. She seems like a phony when she is being nice. I think she's a SNOB.



HOOOOOORAAAAYYYY FOR TAYLOR!!!!!!!!
