If AI is all about the voice, then Elliott should have won hands down. Sadly, people seem to be influenced by other things which have nothing to do with talent. Elliott's voice made me turn around and take notice the first time I heard it.

i loved Elliot ( a Kat Elliot Finale would have been heaven). He wasn't my favorite of the season but i thought he was the best male vocal. He had many solid performances and never really did a far-below-par job. but i do feel people took his leave too personally.

"The Voice"

I have yet to hear a voice this distinct in a long long time. That was the first thing that got to me. The voice seems to come deep from the stomach, with a full and round bodied sound without coming across as too gruff and reverbrates something in you when you hear it. Elliott makes difficult songs look effortless when he performs them and he has the amazing ability to throw in runs, riffs and melismas to suit the occasion and still not make it seem like oversinging. Though Elliott can sing note for note so does a lot of singers out there but one thing that differentiates him from the pack is he exploits the lyrics to their fullest by capturing the nuance and emotions of the words, case in point is his yearning and almost pleading quality in his vocal in If I Can Dream performance during Elvis Night among many others. I could go on and on but I stop as a phenomenal voice like Elliott's is not to be dissected to smithereens but to be savored for the wondrous melody that fills our soul.

emotional intelligence, rhythmic intelligence

Elliott is very talented, very sensitive, very likeable and lovable! I loved most of his song choices on American Idol, especially "A Song For You" which didn't move me to tears (like it did Paula Abdul) but certainly had a profound effect on me. It is the type of song Elliott does really well! I hope to be hearing a lot more from this talented guy!

I really love Elliott's voice - very soulful, very pleasing to the ears, a bit raspy but in a soothing way. I can listen to him all day long and not get tired of his voice. He is one of the best vocalists that American Idol has ever produced, if not the best. He gave me tears and the chills when he sang songs like "A Song For You," "A House Is Not A Home," "If I Can Dream," "Moody's Mood For Love," to name a few. No one idol contestant ever did that for me and captured my heart but him alone. He has gone through a lot in the competition, and for that, he is the American Idol in my eyes. He is a great kid, and his lovable mom would be very proud of him. Good luck to you, Elliott!

After watching 5 seasons of American Idol religiously, I've had my favorites over the years. Contestants with great vocal ability, incredible stage presense, and infectious charm. However NO contestant has won my heart quite like Elliot Yamin. Not only does he have one of the best voices I've ever heard on the show, he seems to be the most humble and genuine guy you'd ever want to meet. He's battled through so much adversity in his life and you get a sense that he has a real appreciation and gratitude for the things he has. The same heartfelt emotion he puts into a performance, he isn't afraid to show off-stage. Elliot truly is one of a kind and he is MY AMERICAN IDOL.

Elliott has a superior voice and on the likeablilty scale is "off the charts". In my opinion, he should have won American Idol Season 5. I think he was the most deserving. He has an amazing voice - especially provided the fact that he has considerable hearing loss in one ear. He is also just a wonderful role model for the youth of America - a tremendously warm hearted, humble and caring person - he has a great deal of humility and family values that is rare among celebrities in this day and age. If America has any sense at all, this young man will go far with his singing career.

In 5 seasons of watching and listening to American Idol, Elliot Yamin is by far the most gifted male singer of the bunch. His choice of songs, arrangements, vocal control and just plain listenability of his voice will make him go far in this business. Add to that the fact that he has had to overcome so many obstacles to be where he's at today. He's unpretentious, cavalier, and just a real, real person. Elliot. I wish you the best.
