    I think Taylor will become quite popular. I hope he goes far. He's definitely unique and not sugary and bublegummy like most others.

    Taylor's my favorite so far. I love his attitude, his whole groove. He seems like someone very comfortable with who he is, with no pretentions, but with loads of talent. I'll take Taylor over a diva-wannabe any day.

    I hope that he has an honest chance to win this, but reckon he is going to be a huge star with or without winning this. There is just something so engaging about him, his voice, boyish charm, and the way he pours his heart and soul into the song, he just pulls you right into his world.

    Some part of me really doesn't like Taylor. He seems a little fake to me. He has a sort of "ah shucks" about him that doesn't ring true. I am also getting tired of the Joe Cocker imitations. John Belushi did it much better. I would love to see him come off more genuine, because that schtick might get him into the top 12, but he won't win if he doesn't show who HE really is.

    I loved last night when he played the harmonica and sang for the judges. To me, he seems to have a lot of talent. I don't think he will win the competition, but he is my favorite.

    I don't think his vibe is a "schtick." I think it is genuinely who he is. He is a musician, quirky but true to himself and the music he loves. I think his sincerity and his talent, so unique (how many blues artists have we had on AI?), will take him far.

    I know some will not understand that his southern ways are not an act, but the real thing. I was raised to say yes sir and no sir, my accent is real, and I recognize him for what he is--a product of good old Alabama! Roll Tide!!
