People can vote multiple times for Idol so that isn't a surprising statistic.

I liked the finale but fast forwarded through most of it except for the duets and Prince. For me the duets and performances by the gals and they guys reconfirmed that the final two were the correct final two. I do think Mandesa should have gotten further, but her weight made her unacceptable to many voters. I also think that Paris should have gone later on in the program.

The Meatloaf/Katharine duet was totally unexpected as was Elliot and Mary J. I loved Prince's performance.

I predict that someone will do a remake of the Wizard of Oz with Katharine as Dorthy. Look for Taylor as a soulful country scarecrow.

Tommy Gun Wooooooo GHD!

Pinkerton 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.

karenlovessnow 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.

GhostUser 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.

WonderRandy It hasn't even come on here yet....

I love knowing who is gonna win before any of my friends!!!
05-24-2006 10:05 PM
synergy Ooops, I'm still watching it here. Shouldn't have clicked on this thread!!!!
05-24-2006 08:36 PM
GhostUser 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!!!!
05-24-2006 07:58 PM
TangledUpInBlue Woooohooooo Taylor!

I didn't watch as religiously this year as last year, but I just really liked Taylor.
05-24-2006 01:31 AM
karenlovessnow 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.
05-24-2006 12:45 AM

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.
05-23-2006 11:28 PM
DelicGrape Taylor is going to win, he has to...I didnt like him one bit, but his last song tonight made me fall in love with him.
05-23-2006 11:17 PM
synergy 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!!!!
05-23-2006 11:02 PM
GhostUser So by all the sites so far, they say he is winning. Gawd I hope.
05-23-2006 10:31 PM
Tommy Gun Taylor's totally got it! Woooo!
05-23-2006 08:06 PM
GhostUser I got through a few times. Got four hours this time to vote!!! Yippee!

I just wonder if the rumor is true that Kats dad works for Fox.
05-23-2006 07:01 PM
Cissy gaaaah, I can't get into the voting line ><

Katharine McPhee's new single is kind of bad...
05-19-2006 12:03 AM
troub By the way, if any of you didn't know:

Chris' Bands website :

They have a few songs you can download too. Pretty nice Rock Ballads.

Chris was my fav too
05-18-2006 04:14 AM
karenlovessnow Oh, yeah, and I feel bad for Elliott. I like him.
05-18-2006 04:13 AM
karenlovessnow 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!

GhostUser 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!
05-17-2006 04:42 PM
karenlovessnow 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.
05-17-2006 12:52 PM
GhostUser 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.
05-17-2006 09:51 AM
asp3 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.
05-17-2006 08:36 AM
eggplant 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...
05-14-2006 04:20 AM
Tommy Gun 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!
05-12-2006 11:33 AM
asp3 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.
05-12-2006 04:45 AM
The Rev I am STILL pissed about Chris. This is TV, for Pete's sake!! What's wrong with me?

GhostUser Here is one link.

But I don't know if he will or be better off on his own.
