Elliott Yamin


My research has been less than scientific, but I’m fairly certain that Elliott Yamin is the nicest contestant American Idol has ever seen: When he missed a phone interview we had scheduled one afternoon earlier this year, he left a heartfelt message on my machine telling me how truly sorry he was and that he most definitely wasn’t that guy—you know, the one who misses phone interviews like it ain’t no thing. Dude’s tunes are pretty solid, too: Worked-up soul vocals often laid over gleaming dance-pop beats. With Matt Brodeur.
