Yet again, the guy with the guitar wins American Idol. Oh well better luck to the girls next season. I think that’s the curse of the show and is the reason why it’s n0t getting as much following as it used to. To Phillip, congratulations! To Jessica, the real battle starts now! Good luck on both of your careers and hope to see more Asian Americans in the next coming seasons.
Will it be Phillip or Jessica?
Jessica Sanchez started the night really strong with her rendition of “I have nothing” and “The Prayer“. She really had full command over the stage and her version of “The Prayer” gave me goosebumps! Phillip Phillips‘ performance at the start of the show was just plain and in some point boring.
The last part of the show featured the two singers singing original songs picked for them to show the world how they might be as an artist once they leave the Idol stage. Jessica’s “Change Nothing” got mixed reviews from the judges. While Phillip’s “Home” got a standing ovation from the judges.
Overall I think Jessica or Phillip deserves to win the title but I’m hoping it would be Jes. American Idol needs a female winner this time. Jordin Sparks was the last female winner back in 2007 but again it’s all up to America.
