Odd Man Out

Cowell Picks Hicks to Be Next 'Idol'

The article above presents an interesting situation: I agree with both Simon and Paula at the same time. Cowell predicts, as the headline says, that Taylor Hicks will win this season's crown next week, and that he'll do so by beating out co-finalist Katherine McPhee, meaning that Elliott Yamin will go home tomorrow night.

In the same article, Paula says, "I am going to be honest with you — I want Elliot to win." And that's how I feel, too! I fully expect to see Elliott sent back to Virginia tomorrow night, but he's my favorite of the remaining contestants, and has been for a while now. Look past the teeth and the trembling, America--the man can sing, which is more than you can say for Taylor, and he not only knows the words to his songs--you can tell he feels them. For once, Paula is right--he deserves to win.
