Number three and number four are a toss-up between Paris Bennett and Kellie Pickler. Both are extremely talented, however, Kellie won't be able to overcome the "Carrie Underwood factor," and Paris is still young and needs to further define her genre.
Both of these cats will go on to have successful careers involving music, and Paris will probably have a career in medicine, too.
Number two will be Katharine McPhee. Katharine has the "IT" factor and typically shines on stage. Goatboy sees her doing Broadway shows and movies.
And the winner of American Idol will be Chris Doughtry! Chris has the biggest "IT" factor in this talented group. Just look at those eyes, the intensity, the passion. Goatboy says that Chris is a real cool cat and sees him rocking stadiums from coast to coast.
