… Phillip Phillips!
Ok, so it’s the fifth White Guy With Guitar who has won in a row. BUT… I have this strange feeling he will be different (success wise) than David Cook, Kris Allen, and Lee DeWyze. Scotty McCreery has done quite well for himself album sales wise.
If Phillip can add a bit of POP to his “Alt/Folk” image, he might just have a shot at being a long lasting artist, if that’s indeed what he wants to be.
I do have to say I was in tears when the emotions finally hit him while singing his winning song “Home” on the last performance of tonight’s show. It was the most sincere I have seen him and it moved me.
I think Jessica will be just fine AS LONG as they find the right material for her. Good luck to Jessica!
I have to say i am a bit surprised at Joshua Ledet being voted off. I was all prepared for a Josh vs Phillip finale. Now we will have a Phillip vs Jessica finale and I truly have no clue who will win.
I would like Jessica to win because it would be nice to have a girl win for once in 5 years, but then again I would like to see Phillip win because he is so… um… Phillip…
I truly have NO CLUE on who to place my bets on next week…
Good luck to you Joshua! I really hope Jimmy Iovine can find some contemporary NEW music for you, but please… DON’T scream your career away, you really ARE talented!
As expected, my favorite Season 11 contestant was voted off tonight. I was really hoping for a major upset, maybe like Josh or Jessica to be voted off but it is becoming more obvious of a Josh and Jessica finale, which for me is Ho Hum…
Hollie, I truly hope you get picked up and do some real good power ballads and dance songs with that awesome voice of yours!
You are already missed. Good luck!
I would be lying if I said I wasn’t happy that Hollie made it through another bottom 2 night. She (Hollie) is truly the dark horse, more so than Haley was last season!
Leaving tonight was Skylar Laine who I feel may have trouble gaining commercial stardom when she records her first album (which she certainly will do)… I love me some country music but Shylar just never clicked with me like I wanted her to. For me, Skylar was almost TOO country for her own good, but perhaps, with the right songs she might make some thunder on the country charts.
Good luck Skylar, you had a fantastic run!
I can’t say I am totally surprised that Elise Testone was voted off and I am quite happy Hollie has another week to (hopefully) break out of her shell! I want to see her do a high powered dance number… I suggest “I Want You To Need Me” the Thunderpuss version by Celine Dion. Come on Hollie! I know you can do it!
Good luck Elise. The last two weeks it felt like you had enough of the competition and the judges (same as me about the judges). Do your thing! You are a great singer but I don’t think Idol was right for you.
