Elliott was sweet but just a slightly above average performer. At least for that year. He did have quality competition

Elliot Yamin should have been in the finale with Katharine. America got it wrong this season by awarding Taylor Hicks with the title.

The flexibility of his voice is just top-notch and he, along with Katharine, claim most of the top 10 performance slots for S5.

Elliot was simply great with his week after week performances. He has a soft and gentle voice and it suits the genre of R&B and Soul. Favorite/Best performances: "A Song For You(B)", "I Don't Wanna Be(F)", "Trouble(F/B)", "Heaven(F)".

elliott yamin is a great guy. love his voice, love his personality, love his rendition of "a song for you." it's a shame he didn't even come in 2nd. although not sure if anybody remembers this, but the night of the top 3 elimination, the breakdown of votes was like 33.2%, 33.3% and 33.4%. katharine, taylor and elliott were split nearly dead even. but he is incredibly talented and quite attractive as well.

Best male vocalist potential
Mar 03, 2008 06:00 PM ET
Reviewed by: CharlesIngalls
Although he lacks the intelligence, maturity, style, originality, sophistication, charisma and stage presence of the great crooners--Sinatra, Torme, Martin, Bennett, Crosby--his voice in in their league. That voice of his is a magnificent instrument, with probably the greatest potential of any American male voice today, even though his recordings so far show that Elliott doesn't always know what to do with it.

Elliot Yammin was a phonominal singer. Absolutley fantastic voice. Not my favriot, but I think his voice is rich and inflicted with a great gift. The fact that he is 90% hearing loss in his right ear is just throwing me for a loop. He had a few rough performances but I think he was overall great. My favriot: A song for you. Least: On Broadway.

Elliott Yamin Objective Checklist
May 26, 2006 09:24 AM ET
Reviewed by: CheckList
'Voice Clarity:' Not the cleanest voice at all but cleaner than Taylor's. 'Voice Range:' Good Range. Nowhere near Mariah Carey but good range. 'Voice Power:' Decent Power. Nowhere near the power as Whitney but decent power. 'Voice Control:' Good Control. So basically he's vocally all-around pretty good. 'Emotes feeling:' Good - not nearly as much as Taylor but good. 'Pizzazz, Flair, and Energy:' Not nearly as much as Taylor. 'Own Style:' Eh ok. 'Stage Presence:' Not nearly as much as Bo Bice. 'Appeal, Charm, Charisma:' Ok appeal - the guy's sensitive. 'Physically Attractive:' I don't know who's uglier - Taylor or Elliot. 'Outstanding Performances:' Sometimes memorable sometimes not.

Not my cup of tea...

Has many weaknesses
May 23, 2006 01:17 PM ET
Reviewed by: TrueReviews
The thing with Elliott is he lacks power and authority in his voice so he scores low in voice power, stage presence, and flair. He doesn't have the best sounding voice, but he's got lots of control so he scores well with control. He's not the best looking of course, Katharine has most people beat. Basically what he lacks is Star Power.

Auntie tings take on Elliot
Mar 22, 2006 07:02 AM ET
Reviewed by: ting
I've loved this guys vocals from day one, and have been rooting for him every since. I think Elliot is my underdog project of this years competition because I think he has so much to offer and so little time to get it done. He has a pure and true voice, he is certainly a little on the naive side and very humbled to even be part of the final 12. I would love to see him really start singing fully from his heart, see his self confidence blossom and I'm waiting on one of those WOW performances that I know he has in him that will really make America stand up and say "WHERE did THAT come from, I mean we knew he was good, but that was AWESOME". Its in there folks... give it time. I fear that his not as sexy appearance will hinder him in this contest as much of America votes for eye candy instead of talent. Again, a reminder that this is a SINGING CONTEST and folks, Elliot CAN AND DOES do it well.
