It’s Phillip Phillips vs Jessica Sanchez for the American Idol performance show tonight. It’s Musical Artist vs Big Ole Voice. Who are you going to vote for to win the competition?
It’s the first night of the 2-night finale of American Idol and the top 2 will be performing two songs each – Simon Fuller’s choice, favorite performance of the season and winner’s song. Airing for only an hour, from 8pm to 9pm, the live show tonight will be at the Nokia Theatre.
What should they sing for the favorite performance of the season category? I think Jessica should sing “I Will Always Love You” or “Dance With My Father”. In the first song, she wowed many people and I think that’s what made people root for her. For “Dance With My Father”, that’s what made the judges tell her that she finally connected with the audience. So I hope she will sing one of these two songs. For Phillip Phillips, my song choice is either “Volcano” or “We’ve Got Tonight”. That was the best song choices for him, in my opinion. What do you think?
For Simon Fuller’s choice and winner’s song, if ever there are spoilers on the other song choices, I’ll post it here.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Iovine pointed out that the success of Phillip Phillips on American Idol will be very good for the show but he also believes that Jessica Sanchez has a shot at winning. He believes in Phil a lot, that he thinks he’s got crazy charisma while he think Jessica is born with one of those gifts that one see very rarely.
