Kat should have gone. the look on her face when she and Chris were announced as the bottom 2 told me that she thought she'd be going. also, there are a couple of still photos on americanidol.com that were taken right after the announcement. Chris was just staring at Ryan, and Kat was looking pretty confuzzled.
I thought for sure it would come down to Kat and Chris is the final. I think Chris has a more marketable look and sound than the other 2 guys, and Kat has the guy vote, with her looks and body.
personally I thought Chris was boring. perhaps I'm just not into his singing style.
Elliott I always liked. good control, good enunciation, good range. he seems to have gotten better with each passing week.
Taylor is a total natural performer.
Kat is a cute girl who'll for sure get offers from her exposure on the show. but her voice seems too "yelly" and uncontrolled a lot of the time.
Chris will still do well. he'll also get lots of offers from his exposure.
interesting viewpoint on the voting:
