This is why...

...I like this season's finalists of American Idol... because this years peeps are not pop singers. They've got style. They're not generic. They're not boring. I would actually purchase their CD. They are not pop singers and I am thrilled about that. They've got real talent. It makes me wonder what they're going to do about the last song that the winner sings because it is not the genre that any of them do well. They're beyond that. I'm so glad to see this at the end of this competition. This is what has actually made me watch it this year... these three finalists have had my attention. Unfortunately Elliot's going to go home. But I will buy his CD, and Taylor's and Katharines... if they get companies that don't try to make them pop singers. That would suck. They're better than that.

You should see American Dreamz. You'd enjoy it much.

Jenn,

I love that our friendship endures through disagreement. I couldn't disagree with you more on this one - we were talking over lunch today about the fact that this is the first Idol season that I don't plan to purchase the winner's cd (because I'm assuming the winner will most likely be Taylor). I've just been terribly disappointed ... I suppose I might buy Katharine's ("Over The Rainbow" was by far the best performance of the entire season - reminiscent of Fantasia singing "Summertime" in Season 3).

I would have bought Chris or Mandisa's projects (and still will).

I really can't deal with Taylor - though I know EVERYONE loves him. I'm definitely in the minority ...

I have to agree that Elliot deserves high praise and if he would have looked a bit more comfortable on stage, he would have gone all the way ... he is a vocal master!

Jen, I agree with you (minus Taylor). I think Katherine is my favorite voice EVER on the show! (Maybe not my favorite person....) I think Elliott was other wordly, but agree with Dan and Angie about his stage presence... I can't wait to see the finale!

Katharine's personality turns me off her, even though she has a nice voice. But forgetting the words to her songs at this late stage (not this past week but the previous 2 weeks) is unprofessional.

I loved Elliott. I thought he had the personality to win this whole thing and stay humble and grateful. Taylor and Katharine seem so cold and indifferent, except when they are singing.
