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.
So we are now down to 5 after Elise got booted out of the competition middle of this week.
The remaining American Idol contestants are: Laine, Phillips, Jessica Sanchez, Hollie Cavanagh and Joshua.
BTW I think Elise wasn’t the weakest among last week. I think she deserves to stay at least for 1 or 2 more weeks. I think it should either be Hollie or Philip who should have been booted out. Anyway for those who missed the show here’s a clip of Elise’s last performance.
