  1. And last but not least, there’s Katherine McPhee. I would not have put her in first place — I would have given that spot to Kelly since I believe that she was the best winner and I think that a winner should have the top spot — but I understand why you put Katherine in first if she was your first real favorite, and because I think that she was the best singer from Season 5. She probably should have won, but I liked Taylor too, so I wasn’t too upset.
  2. Next up is Kelly. She deserved to win her season, especially after Tamyra was eliminated. She is probably the best winner.
  3. Next up is Tanmyra. I began watching the show in Season 1, and Tamyra was the first contestant that I ever voted for. I really wanted her to win, but she was a little too similar to Kelly in terms of fan base, she had one off night, her fans probably were complacent, and that’s all she wrote.
  4. Sorry I was so late, but here’s my comment on Elliott (I’ll get to Tamyra and Kelly later): Elliott wasn’t a huge favorite of mine but I liked him more than Chris Daughtry (again, blame my dislike of rock music.). He deserved to make the Final 3 but he was the weakest of the Final 3 the night he was eliminated, so he left.
  5. LaToya was my favorite of Season 3, and that happened when she sang in the semifinals. From then on, I voted for her. Alas, I think that her innate reserve hurt her ability to connect with the audience, and that, along with the judges being so harsh on Jasmine that she cried, and the support from Hawaii, sent LaToya packing too soon.
  6. David Cook was never my favorite winner — he was a rocker, and I don’t like anything harder than soft rock at best — but I do agree that he was a worthy winner.
  7. I wanted Crystal to beat Lee, but sadly, she didn’t. I would agree that her personality may have seemed too standoffish for the viewers. But if she just wanted to be a working musician, maybe it’s just as well she lost.
  8. Elise was someone I liked okay, although not nearly as much as Jessica or even Hollie. Unfortunately, she failed to connect with viewers and was somewhat inconsistent, being up one week and down the next.
  9. I liked Kimberley. I would have liked her to make the finale instead of Ruben, but he had too big of a head start in gaining fans, and singing “Heatwave” only put her further behind.
  10. Isn’t that the truth? Had Quentin not got caught up in the heat of the moment concerning his friend Joey, he would have made it a little farther.
  11. Quentin is a sad example of how not to follow the rule of avoiding any arguments with the judges, no matter what. While the producers and Harry certainly weren’t blameless in the matter, Quentin could have resisted falling into the trap that the producers laid out for him; or at least resisted a whole lot better than he did. The moment that he got into that argument with Harry, I knew that Quentin was doomed.
  12. Here’s my comments on the singers from 15 to 11: 15. Haley: I would have placed her a lot lower but I can be protective of my favorites too. She might have done better on a different season. 14. Brooke: she just wasn’t good under pressure. It’s a real shame. 13: Pia: the Save should have been used on her, not Casey. 12. Jessica Meuse: I liked her okay. This is a fairly good spot for her. But her problem with that stage mother caused a bad first impression for many, I fear. 11: Candice: I would have placed her higher than Quentin. She deserved to win her season, as she was the best.
  13. Here’s my comments on the singers from 20th place to 16th: 20. Chris was very good but he wasn’t my cup of tea. Also, I agree that he’s probably better off as a front man for a band than as a solo performer. 19. Bo was very good, but he was never my favorite. 18. Maybe it’s just as well La’Porsha didn’t win, given what Borchetta was like. But I still preferred her to Trent. 17. I’m not fond of hard rock, as I’ve said several times, but I voted for Allison at the Final 4 and I thought that she should have gotten past Danny into the Final 3. 16. Melinda was my favorite in Season 6 and I was so devastated when she was eliminated. She was a bit too much like Jordin in terms of vocal talent and she started near the top which meant that she had less room to improve, however. Finally: Haley is your favorite from Season 6? What the heck?!
  14. Sorry that I was so late to comment on the rankings from 25-21. I was very busy with an online version of The Mole. But here goes: Erika: I liked her okay. Unfortunately for her, she was solid but rarely spectacular and that didn’t help her when few were crashing and burning. Ruben: I liked him, although I preferred Clay, so I wasn’t too upset when he won. Vonzell: she was my second favorite after Nadia. But she was up against Bo and Carrie, and they just did better or were more popular. Haley: People have said that the judges bussed her and they might have been right. I thought that she should get in over Lauren at least. Fantasia: My second favorite after LaToya. I was fine with her winning.
  15. Here’s my comments on the rankings: 1. This is a good spot for Hollie. I liked her but preferred Jessica. 2. Jennifer probably needed time to be a star. This is a close enough spot for her. 3. I’d have ranked Caleb lower but that might be in part because I’m not fond of rock music, at least hard rock. 4. I’d have ranked Carrie higher than Bo, but I liked her less than Nadia or Vonzell. And yeah, she wasn’t really a great performer back then. 5. Nadia was my first favorite in Season 4. Unfortunately, voters preferred Scott for some reason and Nadia made some indulgent song choices.
