Am Idol Finals

It’s finals day!

Sexy Kat Mcphee will be singing against Quirky Soul Patrol icon Taylor Hicks for the American Idol finals today. I am still sad that Elliott Yamin didn’t make it. I think he deserved to be in more than the Kat, were it not for his poor choice of song. Odds are stacked in favor of the man with the grey hair, however. His solid fan base, a conglomeration of Hicksfolk, is known the world over as Soul Patrol. In contrast, the voting patterns for Katherine Mcphee have not been as consistent or as huge. An article that appeared in the USA Today, as quoted in Taylor’s message board, described Taylor as more marketable than Kat because he has character, and can appeal to a broader audience. Katherine, on the other hand, is beautiful, voluptuous and sings well but not in the same league as Celine Dion. She would require a different type of packaging altogether. So who will be the next American Idol? It all boils down to today’s performances. Don’t miss a note!
