I only got in one vote the entire time last night when trying to vote for Elliot. But I just read soybeans post about getting 100 votes in for Elliot the last half hour. Is that a bad sign? Because me personally I have never been able to get thru that much to vote for anyone. I really believe everyone except Paula is pushin for Kat or Taylor to win. I hope Simons comments about Elliot not making it thru will just make people vote more to prove him wrong. Clive Davis really bothered me. He picks such horrid songs for all of them except Taylors "dancing in the dark". I didnt go through all these posts so I dont know if anyone mentioned it or not but did anyone notice how when Kat was there he said "WHEN we work together" and when Elliot said he hopes to work with him in the future, Clive kinda just went on to what he had to say and didnt acknowledge that? Elliot is the true underdog of this season. I really really hope he makes it through. Its gonna be tough to beat Taylor next week though whoever is up against him. I do like Taylor. Dont get me wrong but Elliot is a much stronger singer than Taylor is. Performance wise thats a different story but just on voice, I really dont see how people think Taylor is the best of the bunch. I like him though and will be happy if he wins but I wont be satisfied. I will only be satisfied if MY Elliot wins! Love you E!
Nige said that Katherine's last song kept it from being *her* night altogether. I would have thought that the first song would have participated in that effort, also, but I guess he figured that one was erased by the SOTR performance, which of course he thought was the best thing since sliced bread.
According to TV Guide, Elliott actually has a cousin who's a record producer, and who, like the rest of the family, didn't know he could sing until the show. ... So since it turns out that he does have a family connection -- the guy's produced stuff for Guns'n'Roses, among others -- he's got an even better shot (I'd say, 100 percent shot, really) at getting an album made at some point. Yea.
The Cousin -- Josh Abraham. Producing credits include Pink, Velvet Revolver, Limp Bizkit, Michelle Branch. Not exactly right down Elliott's street, but the guy is quoted by TV Guide as saying that he would "totally" produce Elliott's album, so E does know a man who knows a man, which can't possibly be bad.

Rumor is we'll be pleasantly surprised. I hope it's true. The poor guy had to put his name in the song last night (which was awesome), but even this board doesn't have his name spelled correctly on the headshots at the top of the page.
