    I think you got it all wrong, CHRIS DAUGHTRY is going to be the winner of the whole thing.. I was sad to see the crooner go last night

  • Abbey

    I like Taylor Hicks – he’s different, unique and you can tell he absolutely loves music

  • Kim

    My favorites are McPhee, Daughtry, Hicks, and Tucker. I hope one of those wins!It was good to see Sway go. And Heather! BRENNA! I’m so glad she’s gone! Now I can watch it without getting annoyed! Well… Ace is still there so I will still be annoyed but he’s not as loud as her!

  • shannon

    Was Paula drunk last night?

  • Jamie

    Yeah, Paula was totally drunked and drugged up. My favorites are Mandisa, Paris, Chris, Elliot and Katharine.

  • Jamie


  • kirsten

    you forgot about Chris in your top 6! but I totally agree on your pick for next weeks 4 to get kicked off

  • j

    i watch the show for chris daughtry. i hope he wins the whole thing. im so glad that brenna chick got voted off. she was insanely annoying.

  • Zela

    my pick for the final 6 are Taylor, Chris, Elliot, Ace, Mandisa and Lisa. And the winner will be a guy for sure….

  • design_officer

    can’t stand taylor. i think he’s totally fake and playing a part. my vote is for the amish dude.

  • Kelly K

    My favorites are Katharine Mcphee and Chris Daughtry. I think they will be in the top 3! I was right about Carrie Underwood last year from her first audition! It’s clear when someone’s got it, and they’ve got it. Chris Daughtry has never even had voice lessons! That’s impressive!

  • Kelly K

    Oh and YES btw..what’s up with Paula? She couldn’t even get her sentence out. She looked like an idiot being that drunk! Well, it could have been lots of things, but I’m assuming alcohol! She does strike me as a lush for some reason. She does cry a lot and she’s very emotional. All traits of a drunk!

  • Melina Earnest

    I like every on in the top 12 but Taylor and Katharine I didn’t want to see melissa go. Out of the top 16 I really liked will, he was awesome.

  • Tanya

    Chris Daughtry is BY FAR the most talented male on this years American Idol, he will be your winner, I have picked them every season since Kelly and don’t doubt it will be Chris HE’S GOT IT!!
