Soul Patrol! Soul Patrol!

Well as I predicted, Taylor Hicks won this year's American Idol. Americans just love a good show...and Taylor just gave it to them night after night. Not really good of voice, but what a performer. He just enjoyed himself immensely and the audience could relate to that. (My favorite was Mandisa--now that's a voice! And Chris Daughtry--good consistent performer who, despite his rocker roots, could slow it down and put on the grooves.) Poor Katherine McPhee...all that Boston Conservatory training gone to waste. She tried to put on all the seductive moves for the voters because she knew she couldn't rely on her formal voice training and coaching from her mom to win the contest. Guess her dad must really be crying now! (See May 18 post)
