I'll start the new thread.

Who do you think it'll be?

I'm thinking Katherine, but either way I'll be happy. I had predicted a "Katherine/Chris" finale, but Taylor is fine.

I miss Chris

It shoulds have been chris !!! But since he's not there anymore , I vote for Taylor . Anyways, I think chris will get a music deal, even though he was voted off the show.

I think Katherine will get it.... even though I have been rooting for Taylor all along( I didnt think that there was a chance that he would get this far to be honest!) I really hope he gets it.

I agree with Villagemama. I've never voted but it would be for Taylor if I did. And like so many of you, I miss Chris!! Kat really really turned me off last week. In the beginning I was a fan, then she messed up so many weeks in a row, then last week, ick, she just totally rubbed me the wrong way.

Been a Taylor fan since the beginning!

I want Katherine. Oln the off chance that the contract is super screwy, I'd rather see it go to her because she'll fare bettdr in a pop world than Taylor. I hopehe breaks out his harmonica tonight!!

Namaste, Tara

Katharine's voice was HORRIBLE on the second song tonight. Her pitch was off for most of it and I think the song was too big for her voice. I would say, based on her performance tonight (especially in the 2nd song), it will be Taylor.

Taylor! Even thought I think its fixed and Katherine will win. Chris should have won. Katherine has done terribly the last couple of weeks and she is still there???

After, just watching the clips of their performances tonight (I am waiting for House) I would vote for Taylor.

I just got done watching. Wow! Taylor rocked the house. I think he did the best two performances yet. The second song was not great for me (I sound like Randy) dawg but the first and third were hot baby, hot. Taylor deserves to win hands down. He may not have the best voice between him and Kat, but his performance ability puts her to shame. He totally feels the songs and gets into them. She seems to smile at the most inappropriate moments, like she is not even paying attention to what she is singing. Maybe that is why she is off key so much .

K, gotta go vote.

I like them both, I liked Chris and Elliott, too and could've seen them in the finals. They are all so different it's hard to compare!

I hope it's Katherine b/c she is more of a pop star type singer- Taylor is just too individual and unique to be forced into a pop star mold. I think if he wins the contract they hold him to will ruin him. He'll do much better on his own. (Although is the runner up locked into a contract, also?)

I hate, hate, hate those insipid songs they make them sing at the end about destiny,etc. They are so corny!

He was above and beyond the best tonight. Kat was off soooo much, I actually cringed quite bit during the last song. I've always liked her voice, but *she* really started annoying me the last number of weeks. I don't mind listening her, I just can't stand watching her, kwim?
Taylor is really so much better, imo. He is so much fun to watch, plus I really like his voice.

The more I watch her, the more I think she's a snot IRL. She always acts so shocked when one of the judges disagrees w/her song choice or says something she doesn't like. She has a beautiful voice when the song choice fits.

I'll be shocked if Taylor doesn't win. I think he clinched it. I really liked Chris and Elliot too.

Even though I havent watched a single AI this year, I want Taylor, just b/c I want the older guy to win for a change, you know. He seemed like such the underdog, and so I am so glad he is still there

Older guy? He's only 29! HOw old is Kat anyway? I forget. (answered my own question: She's 21)

Taylor was waaaay better overall tonight. I'mglad Kat did whatever that first song was. I like it. Have no clue what it is, but I dig the music and sound of it, even though Iliked it the firsttime she did it better. Based on tonight's performances, I'd say Taylor's a shoe-in. If nothing else, he has a bigger following, especially his underground following. So he'll probably win. I hope the riggin' works and Katherine wins still

Namaste, Tara

I looooved Taylor tonight. Had he sung both of the first songs before, like Katharine? They did not sound as familiar to me although I kinda remember the Elton John one... Weird. I LOVE Taylor. If he doesn't win, I will not watch AI again until next year. I mean it!
