Idol thoughts

Taylor's "Dancing in the Dark"? I thought it was a decent Bruce tribute.

I'm a closet Journey fan and I'll say this: Elliott Yamin is certainly not uglier than Steve Perry. It takes a heapin' helping of cheesiness to match up to Mr. Journey, though, and Elliott couldn't muster the necessary sappiness.

I don't quite get the fuss over McPhee's "Over the Rainbow." Every time that girl falls on the floor, everybody gets all excited. She has legs people, deal with it.

Hick's "Try a Little Tenderness" was a mistake. If you're going to be the next Joe Cocker, be the next Joe Cocker. Go gravelly, go deep. Taylor was actually trying to sing, which didn't work.

Doesn't matter anyway. Time for Elliott's final bow. We'll see him someday on some cruise ship somewhere. Maybe over the rainbow. Maybe.

Taylor has got it won. I don't understand the appeal, yet I guess the 40+ crowd likes his vintage style. Amazingly, the guy has gotten away with not singing a song written in the last 10 years - Maybe 20.

If McPhee is the other finalist, she'll finish second, yet will easily have the biggest sales career out of all of them. I think. Chris will do well, though - better than Taylor.

And McPhee can be molded from the broadway girl to a pop star quite easily. She's only 22.
