Straight from the Seacrest’s mouth.

Fantasia, obviously, has an incredible voice. And she pops off that screen. Like I said — I used the word spirit. She has a great spirit, terrific energy. I think Fantasia would agree that we had a lot of fun on “American Idol.” We laughed and she is candid and she’s vulnerable and she’s real. Those things make for, you know, a successful person in that business and I think that she showed it. Fantasia is not afraid to be honest with the audience and tell the truth. We have some contestants that — and we don’t need to name names, will put on a front for the audience. We know who they are. But I think Fantasia is an honest, talented singer.

Taylor is just — I mean, how do you describe Taylor? How do you put Taylor into a genre. Taylor you and I have talked about this before too. Taylor doesn’t put up walls when it comes to his style and his music. The guy was on stage with Snoop Dogg. Taylor Hicks and Snoop Dogg doing a show together. So he is — he’s got soul. He’s got a little bit of rhythm. And he’s a real artist. Taylor is a musician. Four years ago, you didn’t see people like Taylor Hicks trying out for “American Idol.” I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, Taylor helps to make it cool

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
