I think Simon was right. The two were tied in the middle and Taylor Hicks beat out Katherine McPhee (I'm using full names so my posts will be picked up by Google) with the last song.
Why did Katherine do TWO repeats? I can see one, but I think she hurt herself by doing two songs she's already done before.
But I STILL want to see her win. I think her voice is amazing and she has the potential to be another Kelly Clarkson. Taylor...not so much.
