Ace Young Speaks
My request in this post for an exact quote from Ace Young’s appearance on On the Record with Greta Van Susteren Friday night, was quickly answered.
A great big thank you to Sarah for transcribing Ace’s remarks about Elliott Yamin from his segment on Greta’s show. I also received a link to a download via email, so I was able to actually watch the entire interview. Thank you!
Greta asked Ace, “Who do you think is going to win?” Here is his answer:
“I think it’s gonna be a guy. Sorry Katharine, I love ya, but I think it’s gonna be a guy…I would be very overjoyed if Elliott won because I think that it would be a wonderful thing for him, but I think he has a lot of competition with Taylor and Chris. You don’t know what Taylor’s gonna do, he might just end up standin’ on the judges’ table. And Chris is a rocker. He’s gonna rock from beginning to end.”
I don’t see Ace slighting anybody here. He seems to think Elliott would be the “best fit” for the win, for reasons he hasn’t explained. Ace, in your next interview, tell us why, Ok? Heh. Kudos to Ace for being so candid in these interviews. I dig that he’s totally going off the reservation when he talks to the press.
By the way, I read at TWOP that Ace was scheduled to present a check for over $7, 700 to the Children’s Hospital of Denver. This money was raised by his fan group, the Highrollers. So kudos to them…
Also, right now, Elliott Yamin’s fans are raising money for the American Diabetes Association. They’ve raised about $5, 000 so far. If you are interested in learning more, check out Elliott’s forum at americanidol.com. Also, there is information posted at Yaminions and Everything Elliott.
