In the past, I haven’t been a fan of American Idol. That changed this season the first time I saw the gorgeous and talented Katherine McPhee sing. As much as I enjoyed the energy and antics of this season’s winner Taylor Hicks, I was rooting for Katherine (and Chris Daughtry, who should have taken the Fuel gig) all the way.
