    What's your definition of "finalists" considering Jennifer Hudson only made top 4?

    Sanjaya Malakar is my favorite American Idol contestant ever. I even have his awesome book.

    My second favorite is Katharine Mcphee. How I wish she became my wife.


    My third favorite is Jennifer Hudson. Awesome performance in Dreamgirls,

    She reminded me of Ann Hataway and I always thought Ann was the definition of beautiful. Katherine is pretty and very attractive also as a performer.

    I would never forget her cover of Aretha Franklin's Think on american idol. very sexy.

    Hell I know that next to Clarkson and Hudson , the really successful one male wise is Chris Daughtry. That guy was lightning in a bottle and I remember when he got eliminated and everyone was like...WOW...THAT SUCKS. To Daughtry's credit he turned down being in rock band Fuel (they tried to get him to sign and drop outta the show) and did his own band. He's had a bunch of solid songs and even rocked beside Slash n Santana.




    I think that really was the last high point for American Idol. I think once he was eliminated the show lost its spark as folks were like...well whats the point of watching if folks like Taylor Hicks is gonna win it ? I think that was when AI lost its real momentum in a way.

    I can't answer for their post American Idol careers, but during American Idol I liked:

    Chris Daughtry
    David Cooke
    Bo Bice
    Adam Lambert

    Scotty McCreery might also count, but we gave up during that season, so we didn't see that much of him.

    The one who I disliked more than any other was Katharine Mcphee. She was clearly talented, but I couldn't stand her personality. Honestly I think on talent she probably should have won the series she was on, but her smarmy personality cost her it.

    I think everyone who makes it to the live shows is officially considered a finalist.
