    How is it Taylor's fault? Did he ask to sing?

    I think he's been the official (or maybe unofficial) favorite all along.

It may not have been but the "request" was staged and Taylor probably knew about it, the band knew about it and the show set aside 2 minutes of airtime for his performance ahead of time. Just like the picking sides thing, that was also planned ahead. Taylor might have added his own "flavor" to it but nothing is spontaneous on this show. It's all carefully choreographed.

    Rebecca Romjin could have asked to see Kat sing... but she didn't. They could have asked Elliott to pick sides... but they didn't. It always seems to "happen to" Taylor.
    How much control do you think Taylor has over what happens or doesn't happen on that stage? I'm thinking none. Why on earth blame him because we didn't get to hear Chris' song? They could have taken out one commercial and we could have heard it. They could have not asked Simon who he thought would go. They could have done any number of things to speed things up. Taylor has no more control over what is going on with that show and their agenda than any of the other contestants.

    I would truly like to know why you would think Taylor is a joke? Because he's upbeat most of the time? Because he likes to have fun on stage and sings from the heart? As for fat ... all I can say is huh? You must be looking at a totally different Taylor than I am.

    Not everyone, my dear. As a vocal trainer I think he has a superb voice. You don't have to like his style, timbre, whatever, but calling him a weak vocalist is way off from my perspective. I've already posted in other threads my take on his fine-tuned instrument and though I don't expect to change your mind (after all, it is your opinion), things like intonation, resonance, and the like are indisputable because you are either on or off-pitch and you can't make a middle C sound any different.

    We'll have to wait and see what happens. I'd be very happy if Taylor or Elliott won, love both men. They both seem to very nice, humble, down to earth guys and good friends, they both have a good sense of humor, seem to like each other.

    Is this your opinion, mike? Because not "everyone knows this"...some of us
    think Taylor is fantastic.

    Blame it on the producers not Taylor. This decision was not his to decide. Whether you like Taylor or not, this is the truth.

    He peformed much better than she did which is why he wasn't in the bottom 2 and she was.
