This year's American Idol Final 12 is quite good I must say especially the guys. I always look forward to guys night. And that Taylor Hicks is pretty something.
There are may talented girls too but then I feel like I've seen them all before. Paris is standing on a very thin line between great and annoying for me. When she sings, she's great but when she speaks, she's annoying. She has a deep singing voice but where did that squeaky voice come from? While Lisa is just not matured enough to make some impact. Katherine was fine on the first few shows. But on the third week she was just..... too..... gedik! That's what my nieces would call it. I know she did well but does she have to be so.... so..... gedik! Kellie is nice and sweet but I don't think she's flexible. I can't see her belting any other song than country. And what's with the kangkang move? Mandissa has a very good voice, I must admit. Her rendition of I'm Every Woman was marvellous. If she can bring it on every single week, she might have a chance to win this. Melissa...sigh... why bother. She would be the first to go. I'd rather have Ayla in the top 12.
Bucky is an interesting person to have on the show but then he's like Kellie, not flexible. Ace... God! Ok he is cute but he's a Backstreet Boy. He's a boy band material. Nothing special in him. Hopefully he will go out quickly. Now Taylor... He's from a whole different planet and I mean that in a good way. Yeah, he's a bit weird with that Ray Charles move he makes everytime he's on camera. You know that slight tilt to the right (or left depending on where the camera is) and hugging himself. But he's from a different breed of singers. I don't think he can win this but I can't get enough of him and I want him to stay as long as possible. Kevin Kevin Kevin... he's another cute one too, in that 12-year-old-cute sense. And he does look like Chicken Little. And he's not gonna last long either. Elliot has the best voice in the bunch. He's Moody Mood was so amazing. It was even better than Brian McKnight when he sang it in Q's Jook Joint. He may look like a troll but he has an amazing voice. Hey, the World Idol looked like a hobbit right? He has a shot. He's biggest competitor would be Chris. He has a stage presence, he can sing and he looks great. All he has done so far is rock so I'm looking forward to see him do Stevie Wonder today.
All in all....I'm a fan of Taylor Hicks but I think Chris or Elliot will win this. But I always like the underdog so this year I'll be rooting for...
