Paris Might Go On to Make a Great Record.


I mean, come on, she's seventeen.


I doubt Elliott will, and I'll bet you any sum you care to name he's gone next week. Nor McPhee (week after that). And thought I love him to pieces, Chris will win and make ersatz Creed records that I will not buy.

They must've felt bad when they picked her to move into the top 24. Because clearly her immaturity would handicap her--she overblows when singing into a mic, unlike in her initial audition, when her dynamics just singing in a room were really sophisticated--they must've known that she would eventually get cut out.

Taylor, if you general taste is more along the lines of the Ray LaMontagne song you chose a few weeks ago, you'll make a good one, too. (But did you have to do "Play that Funky Music, White Boy"--? Next season, I encourage a black contestant of any gender to sing it; in fact, McPhee, please consider a version of "Young, Gifted, and Black" for your post-elimination farewell song)
