Taylor Hicks Is 5th American Idol

It finally happened. The Soul Patrol reigned supreme at the 5th American Idol Finale. Taylor Hicks is crowned the 5th American Idol and only the second male contestant to have done so. My gut feelings were right on again, unfortunately. With yesterday's performance being the deciding factor, Taylor definitely had a bigger chance of winning since he definitely chose a better debut song than Katharine McPhee and performed better than her too. Make no mistake, that was the only song that I felt he really stepped up to the plate and performed like a winner until his silly, childish antics at the end that he always does with every of his other performances. Dude, that's not soul...that's someone suffering from acute constipation or something! Please don't do that! It gives me nightmares!!!

Trying to act cute?!? Oh please!

Katharine's performance came all too late when she really outshone Taylor during the Season Finale Results Show. She really rocked today but it was all too late. America had already decided before the show. Her beauty didn't manage to do enough. She defnitely didn't lack talent but her age showed as she was clearly too jittery yesterday but her rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" was magnificient! In the end, the Soul Patrol poured cold water on McPheever's dreams of being crowned the next American Idol.

It's not all bad, really. At least now there's another male American Idol, right? Right? RIGHT?!? I just don't know. Frankly, I would have preferred another male contestant instead. I will definitely want to get his debut song but I just don't feel compelled to listen to his other songs. I admit not watching every second of this season's American Idol but I've definitely seen enough to be able to judge and Taylor is not that much better than Katharine, seriously. He performed better on the night but Katharine was definitely his match. No MTV please!!!

I hope this pose of Katharine will reflect her comeback like the phoenix rising from the ashes. It does look like it, no? I seriously hope we'll hear more from her. I definitely won't mind seeing more of her too. More of her performance la....what were you thinking?!? But she's hot, isn't she? ;)

  1. Granted, he performed better, but I actually hoped she'll win, at least we have someone marketable. I can almost predict what'll happen next. He'll launch an album, be in the charts for maybe 1 or 2 weeks, and he'll disappear just like Fantasia and Ruben.

  2. exactly my worries which i expressed in my previous post! i'm glad i'm not the only person that sees this...
