Boys night: I thought three of the performers were the best of the bunch: Chris Daughtry (liked the singer but didn’t like the song), Elliott Yamin, and Gideon McKinney. Then another group of good singers who could win, but not as talented: Ace Young (he is too pretty for my taste) who has a pretty good voice, Taylor Hicks who makes me feel good, who is original, Kevin Y…….the kid, who also makes me feel good. Kevin actually has a really nice voice, and is a good performer. I also like Will Makar who sings the old fashioned stuff I like, and has a nice sound.
That leaves the bottom three with Jose Sway Penada, who may have just been off tonight. He sounded off key to me. Cody Witherspoon, a Bo Bice clone without the charisma and voice, and David “Sinatra” Bradford. I actually like David but he seems limited to me.
I think that Simon and maybe all the judges like Elliott to win, but I think Chris has more charisma and that may separate the two. But the underdog may be Gideon. Million dollar smile, very confident and a great voice.
So that’s my take, what’s yours?
