Katharine McPhee, Does She Have The Kiss Of An American Idol Champion?

February 18, 2006 05:11 PM by Joe Blackmon

Katharine_mcphee_kiss

Much of the early buzz about the girls on American Idol 5 has centered around Paris Bennett and Kellie Pickler, but it’s starting to look like there might be a new sheriff in town.  Katharine McPhee is a twenty-one year old from Sherman Oaks, California, and she has emerged as not only one of the best singers in the competition but also as one of the most lively and entertaining personalities. 

Music and acting seems to run in Katharine’s genes, as her mom is a L.A. cabaret singer named Peisha McPhee who has an album called “Out of the Blue” and also had a role in the TV movie “The Incredible Hulk Returns.”  Katharine herself has starred as Anna Muir in “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” and as Annie Oakley in “Annie Get Your Gun.”  The Annie Oakley performance earned Katharine a nomination for an Ovation Award from the L.A. Stage Alliance.  Katharine also has a role in an upcoming independent film called “Crazy.” 

During the most recent round of American Idol cuts that led to the top 24, Katharine McPhee delivered one of the best deadpan comedy lines of the night.  Katharine told Ryan Seacrest that she was really upset about fellow contestant Crystal Stark getting cut.  When Ryan told Katharine that she could tell the judges that they made a mistake when she went upstairs, Katharine quipped, “I mean I’m not like so angry,” which cracked up the entire room.    

When Katharine McPhee did finally make it upstairs, she became the first American Idol contestant to officially make it to the top 24.   Randy, Paula, and Simon each puckered up and gave Katharine a kiss on the lips to congratulate her.  When Katharine got back downstairs, she told the other contestants, “and the best part, I kissed all three judges on the lips.”  When Ace Young asked who was the best, she responded that Randy was the best because his kiss was “really luscious and like delicious.”  Katharine’s energy and humor helped to add a burst of energy to what is often a sad part of the American Idol process.      

The judges aren’t the only ones going crazy for Katharine.  Fans sites for Katharine McPhee are located at Katharinefans.com, Katharine-McPhee.net, and Katharine-McPhee.org.  Reality TV Magazine recently caught up with Chad Hensley, who runs Katherinefans.com.  Chad told Reality TV Magazine, “I made Katharinefans.com to create a central place for all her fans to come and support her run to stardom.  From the moment I saw Katharine sing in the first audition, I knew she was something special.  She has the “Girl next door” look, and sings like an angel.  Girls across the country, and world for that matter, can identify with her and use her as a role model because she doesn’t look like Barbie, but is still amazingly beautiful.  She could be America’s sweetheart, with a little sass, as we saw both on American Idol Wednesday night when they cut the contestant pool to 24.  Girls love her, guys love her, and America is going to soon learn just how talented and gorgeous she really is.”

So what are Katharine McPhee’s chances of taking home the prize of American Idol?  Does she have the kiss of an American Idol champion?  We wouldn’t bet against her, and it seems like a lot of other people wouldn’t bet against her either, because according to a recent press release by PinnacleSports.com, she has the best odds of any girl to win and is second only to Ace Young

    I knew it she already did early acts and moves to WIN America’s heart due to her pre-planned kissing all the judges, she’s an actor. She will NEVER NEVER get my votes nor the intelligent AI fans and audience. She has an ok voice range but compared to the 24 finalist her range is too far below the average.

    Is this some sort of joke? Is the next article going to be “Brenna- America’s new Sweetheart?”

    This girl BUTCHERED “My Funny Valentine.” My dog heard it and ran out of the room yelping. She was HORRIBLE. After that, everyone I know who liked her no longer did- it was one of the worst performances EVER on Idol. I doubt she will even make the TOP 12. As for her personality, she is a FAKE and PHONEY and has to resort to “kisses” to get screen time- PATHETIC!! If this plastic girl is not out by the first week, I will be FURIOUS.

    Regarding the “fake” “phoney” and “plastic girl” comments: I have personally known Katherine McPhee for ten years, and she is sweet, spontaneous, respectful and genuine, in addition to being a great singer. What you see on TV is the real her.

    I WENT TO THE SAME HIGH SCHOOL AS KATHARINE AND I HAVE TO STAND UP FOR HER WHEN I SEE THINGS BEING SAID ABOUT HER THAT JUST AREN’T TRUE AT ALL. FAKE?? NO WAY. I PROMISE YOU, SHE IS THE SWEETEST GIRL EVER…SO KIND!!!! WHAT YOU SEE IS 1 MILLION PERCENT HER! I THINK IT’S FUNNY THAT WHEN GENUINE GOOD PEOPLE WITH GOOD HEARTS AND TALENT COME ALONG…PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS QUICK TO KNOCK THEM DOWN INSTEAD OF RECOGNIZING THAT THERE JUST MIGHT IN FACT BE GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD…AND SHE IS ONE OF THEM. SHE USED TO SING AT ALL THE RALLYS, MUSICALS, PLAYS, EVERYTHING!! AND YOU KNOW WHAT….WE ALL ANTICIPATED IT! AT LEAST…I DID. SHE IS A WINNER!

    Katharine is one of the most amazing singers on this season!! And to those of you who call her fake, you’re all just jealous that everyone likes her. You guys probably want someone else to win, that you know doesn’t stand a chance against Katharine. But yet, you still decide on putting her down, and that’s wrong. I understand you have people you would rather want to win, but how about not sharing this stuff at where you know her fans will be at. Because I know that we will not appreciate this. So, why don’t you do everyone a big favor and keep your negative comments to yourself. And when you say you don’t like her, or she’s not good enough, okay. That’s your opinion and you’re entitled to it, but we’ll check back on that when Katharine is crowned as the the next American Idol. [Oh and don't diss me, or try to put words in my mouth. Because this is my opinion, just like those are yours.]

    I think Katherine Mcphee is a breath of fresh air. If you look behind the scenes she has hugged and encouraged some of the other girls as the show ends. That is the sign of a person who is genuine especially when this is a competition. I wish that I had an opportunity to know her or meet her, she seems like a fantastic person.

    if you think Katharine isn’t a talented singer, then something is wrong b/c she is a breath of new air and has what it takes. She is very attractive and has a good personality. I am pulling for her or Kellie Pickler to win

    After hearing Katharine sing “Come Rain or Come Shine” on American Idol last night, I have to say that she has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. Anyone who says she does not have a good voice does not know what they are talking about. Her rendition of that song was amazing.

  24. Pauly Says:
    March 24th, 2006 at 12:41 am

    I think Katherine without a doubt is the prettiest girl in American Idol history and the second if not the best vocalist of the females, however she will come up short as contestants get eliminated, Christ Daughtry is going to take home the title.

  25. Sarah Elizabeth McKinney Says:
    March 24th, 2006 at 12:16 pm

    Whoever said she butchered a song, was wrong. Katharine is one of the only ones (and I also love Kellie and Chris) that hasn’t butchered a song this season. C’mon, Simon compared her to Kelly Clarkson and she has awards coming out of her ass! Simon may be cruel, but he’s right about most performances.
    I do love Kellie, but I’m afraid her personality may be a little over-the-top for some, like last season’s Mikalah Gordon, whom I loved. Mandisa’s great, but I don’t want her to win. I have a crushy on Chris. ;) He may not be the best vocalist but he’s TALENTED – that haunting rendition of “I Walk the Line” is still running through my head.
    I digress.
    Katharine’s amazing.

    Katharine is just what America is looking for…she is promotable, cute, and can sing great. Simon nailed it when he said you remind us of “Kellie Clarkson”. I can’t wait for her to win and show America what she can really do. Katharine you have all my votes and support. You are the whole package:)

    Katharine is amazing. She is the entire Idol package. Looks,voice,personality. I believe us as idol fans let her down last week by not voting. We all knew in our minds she was never going to be in the botton three. Come on all lets make it up to her. She is the best and will win with our support. Sorry we let you down Katharine. It will not happen again

    HE’S RIGHT! LET’S NOT LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN! GET READY TO “POWER DIAL THE WHOLE 2 HRS” FOR KATHARINE NEXT TUESDAY (AND EVERY TUES) FROM NOW ON!!!!

  38. nasaman Says:
    April 11th, 2006 at 9:20 am

    Just as a reminder for those without Cingular text messaging, software dialers, etc…..

    1) Start dialing (& rapidly REdialing) RIGHT AFTER the last person sings, and for ~2 more hrs (until AI’s lines “busy out”)

    2) If you have 2 or more lines, redial separate phones on each of your lines alternately (to increase your voting speed)

    Let’s make sure Katharine wins tonite (& every nite!) by sharing 1) & 2) above with everyone we know that supports her!!!

    ******** IMPORTANT ALERT TO KATHARINE FANS ********

    Last night on EXTRA, Simon Cowell suggested the future is dim for our beautiful and popular Katharine. He said, “She’s reaching a point where she’s looking so perfect and sounding so perfect, ironically, it can work against you ….she won’t win.” HE’S RIGHT! There are tons of angry, hateful comments about Katharine on lots of blogs out there. Some of these are a twisted expression of jealosy or envy. Others simply believe Katharine is too good to be true –that she’s really a Hollywood fabrication, not the gifted natural performer we know her to be!

    Another source, http://www.zabasearch.com/ai_stats.php , showed evidence of Simon’s prediction ….that Kellie got TWICE as many votes last Tuesday as Katharine!

    ….SO IT’S TIME FOR US TO ‘LEAP INTO ACTION’, FOLKS!!!!! LET’S CALL ALL OUR FRIENDS & ASK THEM TO RAPIDLY REDIAL EVERY PHONE THEY HAVE FOR KATHARINE NEXT TUESDAY NITE & EVERY TUESDAY NITE STARTING RIGHT AFTER THE LAST SONG, UNTIL THE LINES ARE BUSIED OUT JUST OVER 2 HRS LATER!

    (You can copy & email my message above out too, if you like)

  44. Anna Says:
    April 19th, 2006 at 1:02 pm

    Katharine is pretty good. If i could chose the results I would choose Kellie winnnig the compitition 2nd place Taylor Hicks 3rd place Katharine! That would be my choice…oh and if theres anyone out there who LOVES katharine go to http://www.KATHARINErocksHARD.com!

  45. L.J. MORRIS Says:
    April 19th, 2006 at 11:36 pm

    ALL RIGHT! KATHARINE MCPHEE’S PERFORMANCE WAS THE BEST AND I DON’T THINK SHE’S A FAKE! WHEN I WATCHED HER PERFORMED I WAS GRIPPED IN AND SHE LOOKED VERY SWEET. EVEN IF SHE ACTED BEFORE, IF SHE CAN ACT THAT REAL THEN I SAY SHE CAN JUST QUIT SINGING AND TACKLE THE ACTING CAREER BUT ALL IN ALL SHE HAS THE BEST VOICE AND I LOVED IT LAST NIGHT AND STILL DO! SHE JUST MIGHT WIN!

  46. L.J. MORRIS Says:
    April 20th, 2006 at 12:12 am

    ANOTHER THING! THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE KELLIE PICKLER’S FAN MUST KNOW THAT SHE CAN SING BUT NOT FABULOUSLY GOOD! SHE CAN’T EVEN TACKLE A SONG WITHOUT MISSING A FEW PITCHES AND GETTING OUT OF TUNE. THAT’S JUST NOT PERFECT ENOUGH FOR A FUTURE AMERICAN IDOL. I CAN’T DENY THAT SHE’S CUTE BUT THIS IS A “SINGING” COMPETITION NOT A COMPETITION OF CUTE COUNTRY MUSIC GIRLS! NO OFFENSE, BUT I LOVE COUNTRY MUSICS! THOSE OF YOU WHO SAY KATHARINE SUCKS AND IS EVEN WORSE THAN KELLIE MUST HAVE THEIR EARS CHECKED. I’VE BEEN IN THE MUSIC CAREER FOR 20 YEARS NOW AND I KNOW WHO CAN SING WELL, GOOD, AND FABULOUS TO INCREDIBLE!!!

  47. Murphy Says:
    April 21st, 2006 at 11:29 am

    Although Simon said she won’t make it, I know deep down inside he really wants to see Katharine being last man standing in the final night. He has never really attack Kath by his comment. Because he knows she’s on the money, right? but he also know in this kind of competition people judge a person based on what they see today, not the future.

    Hmm. Must have missed this article when it came out. Found the link today. I like how the author thought Kat was “girl next door” and “doesn’t look like Barbie” but has now evolved into the hottest, sexiest, most beautiful woman ever to grace the Idol stage. (Did I say she was also the best singer?)

    Kat is absolutely amazing! She is without a doubt, the most gorgious contestant ever on idol and other than Kelly Clarkson, I think she has the best voice ever. I think it will come down to her and Chris in the finaly and although I happen to like Chris’ type of music better, it’ll be hard not to want Kat to win!

KATHARINE is BETTER THAN CHRIS, KATHARINE IS BETTER THAN TAYLOR, KATHARINE IS BETTER THAN PARIS (although she is the next best) KATHARINE IS BETTER THAN ELLIOTT!! Elliott being the best GUY but not the best in the competition. KATHARINE SHOULD BE THE NEXT :AMERICAN IDOL”!! If she isn’t something is WRONG AMERICA & AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To all:

    Right from the start of Kat’s audition, I told myself that this girl has the most natural voice among the contestants. Kat without even tryhing to exert any effort at all simply sings out wonderfully and beautifully. Her voice is deep, genuine and natural coming from her diaphragm and not nasal. Most of the contestants (pls. no offense)had to yell or shout inorder to deliver the song completely well, but not Katharine. Katharine is a born singer and a star! She is not only beautiful, but she is also sexy, voluptous, poised and composed, confident, intelligent, sweet, sincere, tall and she has an “IT! to become an “American Idol”! She has an over all package for an American Idol that America would like to see. What made me noticed is that, Katharine is deep and have a good heart and compassion. I could tell that by looking at her eyes. I could read the feelings of a person by looking at their eyes. And you know what, Katharine is indeed an honest, compassionate girl. I don’t know her. I live in a very remote state of United States.I would only wish that Katharine will win as an American Idol for 2006! If not I also want Taylor Hicks to be the one!

    Katharine is the most warm and soulful singer i have ever heard in my life…
    She deserves this .,
    she has what it takes right now to be a star. please america ; let her have this american idol crown..
    she has captured what singing really is supposed to do to the heart…
    Thank you ..

    i like katharine. i think she’s beautiful, she definitely can sing, a little bit odd personality, all and all, she’s wonderful. i’m still not sure whether she’ll become the next american idol, but does she like have to win to get a record deal? i bet simon’s (and perhaps few other producers) already had her on his new talents’ list or something … so no worry for her … she’ll get a record deal, with or without the american idol title …

  65. Dale Says:
    May 4th, 2006 at 3:37 am

    I watch the Idol only to see Katherine…Beautiful in all its meanings and surpasses all in singing. I could see her in the other Catherine’s (Zeta Jones) role in Chicago. Looking forward to seeing her in roles like that in the future! If she doesn’t win, this will be the last Idol I will ever watch!!! I will reach her by phone every second I can get through coming Tuesday, 6/9 and thereafter!!!

    I can’t believe there are people so stilted that they cannot recognize this amazing talent. Katherine McPhee is a star and has the biggest future of any contestant this year! She doesn’t have to win (but she will) I’ll bet there are agents from William Morris in a bidding war for her! Potentially the greatest star this show has ever produced!

    i come from Malaysia, all the Malaysian enjoy watching american idol every week as the competition was really high in standard and entertaining…

Elliott being the best GUY but not the best in the competition. KATHARINE SHOULD BE THE NEXT :AMERICAN IDOL”!! If she isn’t something is WRONG AMERICA & AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kat is the best singer on American Idol. She’s awesome. The judges are trying to give Elliot and taylor some hope on winning, but it aint gonna happen. We have to keep her dreams alive and KEEP VOTING. Paula doesnt like kat and only praises Elliot and Taylor, look for her to spare Elliot from any bad comments because he is her favorite. It’s down to the bottom 3. Don’t let the judges rob Kat of this opportunity! VOTE VOTE VOTEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

    Katherine McPhee has the best voice and range. I was so glad that she is at the bottom three. She should go all the way. She has the beauty that matches her voice. She needs to focus on songs that show off her high pitch and smoothness of her voice. These next two weeks are so important to practice, practice, practice and win!!!!!!!

For the rest of us normal people who love Katharine, it would amazing to have her win and be the American Idol. She is the best Female vocalist since Kelly Clarkson and Tamyra Gray. I LOVE Katharine, and her voice can bring me to tears she is so wonderful! (whoever said she butchered My Funny Valentine is completely wrong; it was amazing. All her performances have been fantastic!)

    Admidst all of the AI contestants,Katherine McPhee has the most outstanding and beautiful voice throughout all AI seasons. She’s also attractive, kind and down to earth and has strong family values, which makes her a well-rounded person.
    She more than deserves to win and has put up with more criticism than all of the other contestants.
    If one listens to Taylor, he’s often flat, out of breath and I believe he’s older than what he states. His performances are rldiculous, manic and very amateurish. He should have been voted off a long time ago. If Kat doesn’t win, America better have their hearing and vision checked. And since when can Taylor sing better than any of the original artists he’s copied? He can’t!!

    I think Kat is so superior to eveyone this season and one of the best of all seasons. She has been critized unfairly and it is unbelievable how they make stuff up – especially Randy – you know they are full of it! They want a guy and that is it! I think this might be the last year for me watching because it is becoming such a farce. Just my two cents. Go Kat!

    Note to my fans, haters and those who don’t know who the heck I am: Sorry I have been lax again about posting my Gay Idol Journal, my day job here at the Mousehouse has me running like a severed-headed chicken. Needless to say, I am still watching Idol. And I stopped by to check things out here… only to be infuriated by what many of you are saying. So I had to speak up.

    In Defense of Katherine

    Over the past few weeks, and particularly in the last 16 hours, I have read some pretty severe comments on this and other Message Boards about AI5 finalist Katherine McPhee. Common words used in these posts include: snotty, arrogant, rude, slutty, mean, two-faced, evil, fake, and, worst of all, ‘entitled.’ Furthermore, according to these self-proclaimed ‘critics,’ Kat’s parents, close family, friends, and anyone who likes her at all, are also all of the above things and more. They don’t like the faces she makes when she gets negative comments from the judges. They don’t like that she was happy when Elliott was voted off. In short, they think she is a cruel heartless biatch. (Hell, I think they would accuse her of being the anti-Christ if they had any evidence of that fact.)

    I happen to have a bit of knowledge of Kat, and of her mother and boyfriend as well, and I felt forced to speak out in defense of these attacks on her character. As I have stated in previous columns, Kat is the opposite of arrogant. In fact, she is perhaps the least confident idol finalist this year. Much of her life, she has been a ‘theatre geek.’ Well-liked, but not overwhelmingly popular, and a bit shy around groups of people. Performing is a way to ‘come out of her shell’ for her. She may come off as being over-confident, but this is all a defense-mechanism… a shield she puts up to cover her self-doubt. She has also fought weight issues, and recently lost a bit of weight. She has never thought of herself as truly sexy… or even attractive… and the attention she is getting this season is all new to her.

    Consequently, this is all a bit hard for her to adjust to. Praise is unexpected. And being criticized harshly in front of millions of people would be difficult for ANYONE, but it is especially hard for her. She is her own worst critic, and so when the judges criticize her, she takes it very personally, feels she has failed, and becomes immediately defensive. When she is criticized for being ‘pitchy’, this hits her especially hard, because questioning her musical ear, something she is somewhat confident with, causes her self-doubt to get even stronger.

    I wonder if any of you ‘critics’ have ever performed before an audience before? I have on numerous occasions, and let me tell you, it ain’t easy. The nerves and adrenaline propel you through, and frequently you can’t remember what you have just done when it’s all over. If what you do remember is that it was a pretty good performance, only to be told later that you sucked, it can be pretty annoying and disheartening. Ever heard back a tape of how your voice sounds? Most people’s initial reaction is “Ick! Is that how I actually sound?” It is impossible for a performer to know exactly how they look and sound. Criticism (especially from people, like Paula, who are not good with words) can be very hard to understand. The ‘tilted head, quizzical eyes’ expression Kat gets is just that… she doesn’t know what she’s being told, or how she can fix it for next time. It doesn’t all compute for her.

    Kat was not in any way expecting to get this far. Her reaction last week, at Chris’ elimination, said it all. The judges savaged her. She fully expected to go home. This week, she expected the same. So, when it was Elliott instead, she reacted with joy. Please, people, can you really blame her? Would you not be joyous in the situation? And it’s not as if she jumped for joy (like Paris did every week.) She simply smailed and looked in the direction of her parents. Of course, Taylor appreared to handle it better. But the truth is, Taylor knew full well it wasn’t going to be him. The judges have pumped him up for weeks. He had plenty of time to prepare his “Oh I’m sorry for Elliott” response. Kat, however, was caught completely off guard for the second week in a row.

    In summary, I feel that the criticism of her ‘attitude’ is completely innacurate. Notice I am not criticizing those who call her ‘wooden’ or ‘plastic.’ ‘Plastic’ is sometimes an accurate description of her. When she is nervous or doubtful, she pastes on a big smile to cover her emotions. That fake smile is not the real Kat. Feel free to criticize her for that… she is working on it, like all performers, but has a ways to go.

    Feel free to criticize her if you don’t like the tone of her voice, or if you don’t like the style of music she sings, or if you feel she has let her nerves get it the way of her performance. But before you attack her personality, take a moment to consider the fact that your assessment of her personality is being formed with little actual evidence of who she is. And I think this is unfair, innacurate, and sometimes downright mean.

    Note to my readers: I have read so many posts from those who dislike Katherine because of her ‘cocky’ attitude and ‘beauty pageant’ demeanor. This perception couldn’t be any more wrong. What many people don’t know is that Katherine has struggled with her weight (she recently lost 30 pounds) and does not see herself as beautiful or pageant-worthy. She wears frumpy clothing often because she thinks that’s all she can wear. She is still trying to get used to the fact that she is pretty and that others view her as such. The stiffness we see, and her forced smile, comes from trying to feel comfortable in her own skin, not from overconfidence or entitlement. The fact that she is sometimes unable to fully commit vocally and emotionally to the song comes from this same place of insecurity. Try to view her next time with that knowledge, and see if it changes your opinion of her.

    There are as many opinions as there are people, so of course I have one also. I believe that every one of the contestants had a bad performance or two, but at the end of the day kat was incredible. She has a beautiful voice and she is stunningly beautiful. Taylor is entertaining, and I am happy for him, BUT when I turn on the radio it will be kats “VOICE” I want to hear.I’ll miss seeing her on Tuesday nights…it’s been wonderful having her to look forward to!

    Okay. So maybe she didn’t win the title. Seems I read plenty of naysayers who thought she wouldn’t make it to the final 24 muchless the final 12. I do think she’s a better singer than Taylor. But Taylor was the better overall performer in America’s eyes in the end. Still. I think being in the final 2 means she will definately have a contract in the works before long.

    It came down to two – one that could perform (yet I couldn’t stand to watch him because he dances like a dork) and one that could sing. Did the right one win? I think not!!!! Kat’s voice is like a breath of fresh air, while Taylor’s drawl comes through on every song he sings. He’ll be another Reuben Studdard -here today, gone tomorrow.

    Katharine deserved to lose. Apart from being a good singer, an American Idol should convey humility. You never saw Kellie Clarkson smirking while her fellow team mates got booted off. Wah Wah to her body issues. Who doesn’t have body issues? Her mom has a Cd out and teaches voice lessons. What an advantage Kat had and she still messed up. She belongs singing in a lounge somewhere on a Carnival Cruise.

    TAYLOR HAD A GREAT GIMICK.. flipping around on the floor acting innocent and friendly so everyone would love him. Hey, he probably is a nice guy.. but as far as talent goes Katherine BLOWS him away. American Idol has to get rid of RANDY & stupid PAULA..because they are the idiots who are trying to pursue the people’s votes. I was pretty pissed that the flopping fish won.. but when you think about it.. TAYLOR will make one album.. then you will never hear about him again. KAT on the other hand will be the next Kelly Clarkson!! She has some career going for her and I cant wait to see whats next in line after she tours!

    HATS OFF TO TAYLOR…at the end of the competition he won… but KAT IS THE REAL DEAL and SHE has a hell of a career ahead of her!

    Lauren, you are ab-so-LUTE-ly right! When I first heard Katharine sing during the auditions, I picked her as the probable winner. And she just kept getting better week after week. Aside from her looks, which are amazing, she is by FAR the best singer (with the possible exception of Clay Aiken) that AI has had in the five years of the show.

    Yes, Taylor will make it in the big-time, but nowhere near what Katherine will do for years to come!

    (Shades of the Ruben Studdard/Clay Aiken finale?????)

    I live in South Africa and unfortunately for me that means I got to get the bad news that Taylor won American Idol 5 yesterday.
    I don’t mind that Katharine lost, because I truely belief that she’ll be one of the most successfull contestants, I’m just dissapointed, because this means that it’ll take longer for her cd to get to South Africa and that unlike my previous beliefs America really aren’t that smart.

    I have family and friends all over the world, Australia, England, Ireland, Holland and Canada I’ve been in contact with most of them and according to them people in their countries and according what I found out people in South Africa doesn’t really like Taylor Hicks. Most people say he seems like a nice enough guy, but since when did being a nice guy that can’t dance and can kinda sing earn you the American Idol title. I though that was a bit harsh, but that’s how people over here feel.
    My point is if one of the 2006 American Idol Fanilists is going to make it world wide, it’s gonna be Katharine.
    The Mcpever has become a world wide epedemic.
    I can’t wait for her firts album and I wish I could be in the usa to see her on tour.

    Taylor sang live today on Regis & Kelly. All I have to say is if he sang like that during the AL compeition he’d be kicked off before Becky! Barely got an applause… KATHERINE sings tomorrow so everyone wake up early!! 9am Eastern time

    talent wise, katharine should have won, hands down. taylor puts up more of a show and everyone gets caught up in it. he gets the crowd going, which then gets him more votes, that is why he won. he also comes from a small town which gets him plenty of votes from his local area, while kat comes from a city where there is not much support. honestly taylor will never become popular, he looks 40 and sounds 40, that doesnt appeal to the audiences that makes songs land on the charts, 45 year old moms dont get songs famous. kat is going to pull somthing similar how clay aiken did to ruben, she will become the more popularone . taylors whole “soul patrol” deal was just a gimmick to get votes, taylor is also very creepy and weird, seriously jsut look at the guy and the way he dances. american idol is a singing competion, therefore it is about vocal talent, not what you can do to scrape up votes by getting the audiences going, sure that makes a star, but whats a star without talent? if you seriously think kat sucks, you have no musical ability what so ever. most of you complaining are either tone deaf or just have a grudge on her for what ever ridiculous reason you may have. so everyone reading this when you read people saying she sucks, the must have never been around music in their life… she obviously is going to go far with her musical career, so some of you should actually listen when you watch the show…

    Why everybody keep saying that Katharine is an amazing singer?She’s just an ok singer. She’s no Kelly Klarkson or Christina Aguilera or Beyonce. I didn’t think she deserved to win. There were some good performances of her including her audition in San Francisco. But after each week her voice got wors and wors. Maybe she is a nice, beautiful or real person but when it comes to her singing I’ll say that her voice is not amazing. There were only couple of amazing voices in season 5 (Elliot Yamin and Paris Bennet)they should’ve won.

    Katharine Mcphee was THE MOST talented contestant on idol season 5. This is for all Kat fans. There is no loss in her second place finish!! She is destined to have a very successful career in the music industry. After all she’s only 22!!!

    We have to accept the good with the not so good in this life. Even though Katharine didn’t clinch the season 5 title, we will look back and recall that it was amazing!!!…to watch her rise to the top even with all the competition she had.

    for her career take off.
    She definately is the rising Star from the west. Go Kat Go! We

    Katharine McPhee has a huge chin. She has a weird forehead. I think Katharine McPhee is ugly. Not to mention she shrills from all of those years of puking. (and did they pay off? Let’s go with no) She looks like amazon woman. She also has no stage pressence and sorry to say, but she cannot connect with her music at all. I really doubt she will sell many CDs at all and for anyone saying she was good as Whitney in her prime, stop lying. She is not even half as talented as Kelly Clarkson and Kelly isn’t even half as talented as Whitney was in her prime (vocally).

  149. Riho Lehtorg Says:
    March 25th, 2007 at 9:56 am

    My name is Riho Lehtorg and I have a great spiritual teacher and mastersaint and became supreme, by the way supreme-god perhaps the game chief or two crack off all the universe-I will. Place I became is kab or eii, higher rise don’t possible, became like told hierarchical scheme highest level-became so named the god eye, there don’t never leave and have endless joyfulness and intoxicating blessedness given and you are same important as the source-one who start the game-together they are five gods-one is Neale with contact present god-I became same important-so that is in every way special and specificity is me a hundred and that way I like supremes so much and go there, so that someone go there is happening very rarely-everyone likes to be there and never spinning and born-few go there and then they have peace, very lot of universe watch my a high-tech internet that way all universe knows me what means 90% of universe knows me-what knows many politicians and that reason her looking me like George Bush and the others politicians and intelligence and then great interest object and I have to pendulum a lot talk they.

    My first question to you is this: How to create a channel or achieve telepathic contact with God? Does one have to know certain exercises or are there any other tricks for achieving this contact? And can one even achieve this contact on their own initiative, or does it have to come from God, or should one even have natural abilities for this? I’d like to achieve contact with God because I’m interested in many topics concerning life and death, and it would great to have an answer for all the issues that have crossed my mind.
    My second question is whether it would be possible for you to give me the contact information of a woman who is beautiful and rich, has a good personality and is generally a good person? She would also likes me a lot and be willing to give me millions of dollars.
    I’m also wondering if you would be able to give me the contact information of a person who would be willing to provide me with alien technology, or in other words high-tech Internet, which resembles a laptop from the outside, but it enables to watch the past, present, and the future, and also any person or any thing; it also gives answers to all questions.
    I hope that you will be able to help me find an answer to these questions, as they are of vital importance to me, and would help me get on in life and improve my financial status.

    I have information concerning alien technology. To be more exact, then I know that important politicians such as George Bush and his administration (Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Robert Gates, etc), but also Vladimir Putinil and other heads of state (e.g. John Howard, Lula da Silva, Hu Jintao, Manmohan Singh, Felipe Calderon, Stephen Harper, Tony Blair, Jacques Chirac, etc) have alien technology in their possession. The alien technology in question is high-tech Internet, which originates from extra terrestrials and which they get via the secret services, military intelligence, intelligence bureaus, and the army.
    The majority of alien technology is situated in Area 51. They also develop military technology there and communicate on a regular basis with extra terrestrials who also visit to share their knowledge about various technologies. Even Mr. Bush has been on board of flying saucers.
    The alien technology in question, meaning high-tech internet, is mostly black, and looks like a laptop with 30 x 40 cm dimensions. Usually one person has several sets of high-tech internet – one to observe an alien creature, and the other to check up information about it. Obviously, the technical data of high-tech internet is superb: the resolution is high, which makes the picture extremely lifelike. Users of high-tech Internet can also play computer games, but they are much more powerful than those we know on Earth, and the games also enable users to enter into realistic cyber worlds, similar to those seen in the motion picture Matrix.
    When Earth computers can do billions of operations then for high-tech Internet sets there is no limit – they are powerful beyond belief. They can also be used to watch absolutely anything in audio, video, or writing – be that in the past, present or future. Let’s say you are interested in an alien creature in another universe – you can watch that. Or you may be interested in checking out the next lottery numbers – you can check then out from the future and earn millions of dollars this way. You may also be interested in solving the mystery surrounding a historical event – all you need to do is look it up on the high-tech internet and it gives you the answer right away. For example, the events surrounding September 11 are still rather unclear and there are many conspiracy theories going around. With high-tech Internet there would be no more secrets; the questions would be answered, and in addition to that, the Internet enables to watch these events as in real time. It also has additional features, such as while watching a creature, the observer can also see what it is thinking, feeling, how its health is, also hear what it is talking, and what the creature’s past and future are like. Since the machine can also see the future with a minimum error ratio then it is possible to eliminate mistakes that are going to be made. Basically, the future of the entire universe can be seen on the high-tech Internet.
    This technology functions as a data bank of the universe – all imaginable information from the largest galaxy to the tiniest life form or atom can be found there; hence, all questions will be answered. It is basically a device that receives and transmits information, being similar to the phenomenon of clairvoyance but with a lesser error margin.
    Other examples of alien technology would be ether cameras, which are small, round and invisible cameras located 40 cm away from the forehead of the subject on a 60 degree angle upwards. The range of the cameras varies from 10 m to 50 m, and the greater the range the stronger the protection is on the subject. Together with high-tech Internet it provides even better visibility of the subject of observation and additional features for information.
    A third interesting form of alien technology is an ether suit, which is put on a subject with the help of a high-tech device, and which s programmed to where it can travel with the subject (e.g. within the limits of the subject’s own planet or within the entire universe). The suit has a panel on its back for programming. The suit itself can’t be felt, it’s like a microchip in the brain that coordinates the subject’s movements and surrounds the subject’s body like ether. The ether suit enables the person wearing it to move instantly to any place in the universe.
    Also good flying saucers with photon energy are able to fly instantly to locations that are millions of light years away. Several important individuals have invisible flying saucers for protection against bad aliens. These saucers hover above the air space of that individual and move together with that person so that bad aliens couldn’t capture or harm them.
    Also many important politicians and their families have ether suits but they don’t use them in public. Chelsea Clinton and several intelligence service executives have those suits, for example.

    I sincerely hope that you will publish this story and the truth will come out because the privileges experienced by those in the top of the political and power hierarchy must be stopped. I also believe that everyone has the right to know the truth about things concerning the universe and our planet, and also their own personal lives; hence, everyone has the right to use high-tech Internet!
    I am hoping that you will perhaps be able to gather more information about these technologies, but it is obvious that this information is kept strictly in secret as only a small circle of individuals have access to this technology and they will do anything to keep the general public away from it. High-tech Internet devices could even be sold in stores just like regular commodities – this is done in other planets but not on Earth. Of course, President Bush will do anything to cover this up and he will just deny the existence of extra terrestrials and these technologies, just like he refuses to officially acknowledge the existence of Area 51. But he should be forced to come clean with it, because like a former Canadian minister said, the only thing to help against climate change is when all states reveal their alien technologies and put then into practice.
    I would also like to add that in addition to regular people there are extraordinary people – spiritual teachers or masters – on this planet, who have complete consciousness (the maximum level of consciousness that enables to perform miracles). There are only a dozen of those people, resembling Buddha, Jesus Christ and Chrishna, on Earth. There people have the ability to create matter from thin air (including high-tech Internet, which I’m sure they all have), they can also move with the speed of mind, travel in time, be in several places simultaneously, control the weather, fly, and perform other miracles. They keep low profile and therefore are unknown.

    Question to politicians I know about the existence of certain alien technologies. I am especially interested in high-tech Internet. It is mostly black, and looks like a laptop with 30 x 40 cm dimensions. It can be used to watch anything or anyone, also to look at the past and the future, and it also gives answers to all questions one might have. As I believe that you have some of those high-tech Internet sets in your possession then my question is whether you can send me a set, or if you can’t do that then whether you can answer some of my questions with its help. It would mean a great deal to me, and improve my life significantly.
    Please contact me as soon as possible.
    PS:I can also send my pictures!
