Amy Biancolli of the Houston Chronicle shared her thoughts on why Taylor Hicks was able to win ‘American Idol’ this season over the California girl with the better singing voice, Katharine McPhee. “McPhee’s performances often generated ‘Wows’, but viewers wowed the instrument in her throat, not the songs she performed,” Biancolli writes. “At times her interpretations turned me off a song. Before she sang it, I rather liked ‘Black Horse and the Cherry Tree’; now I’ll be glad if I never hear it again.”
