ORIGINAL POST: So, what do you think? It's got to be Chris or Kat going home, right? Not Taylor. He's popular. And not Elliott. He's my dear, sweet boy who was so good last night.
Rebecca Romijn is in the audience. She pretends as if she's all freaked out by the excitement, then claims to love all four contestants equally. That doesn't add up. If you like them all the same, what does it matter? She asks them to make Taylor Hicks sing "Jailhouse Rock" again, and that can't be just her idea. The phoniness is overwhelming.
But here's Taylor, bringing the party. He forgets the words. He forgets "If you can't find a partner, use a wooden chair." Come on. Who can forget that? That's one of the most amazing -- and disturbing! -- lines in all of rock history. Oh. On the second pass at the line, he gets it.
Ryan puts Taylor Hicks and Elliott Yamin on one side and Chris Daughtry and Katharine McPhee on the other. One side is the top 2, the other the bottom 2. And he does an "after the break" teaser. But you have to be incredibly out of it not to know which is which.
Ah, my boy, Elliott, is safe.
Ryan asks Simon who should go home based on last night's performance. He says Kat. Ryan then suddenly tells Chris he's going home. Aaagh! But it is deserved. He was my favorite, but I let him go last night. He just wasn't good enough. And there is a certain something that Kat brings to the show. You know, she was my favorite at the audition phase.
