Colby Cross is Taylor's favorite singer. She appears in The Prisoner of Cell 25 when Hatch takes the Elgen Glows to one of her concerts. He has Taylor reboot her mid-song, which causes her to feel as if she had 'betrayed somebody she admired'. Colby is mentioned once again in Rise of the Elgen, when The Voice gives the Electroclan an iPod Nano that alerts the Voice to pick them up when a certain one of her songs is played. As well as in Hunt for the Jade Dragon at the end of Michael and Taylor date.
