Finale time – finally. Phillip vs Jessica. Will it be another WGWG (white guy with a guitar?) or will we have a female winner for the first time in 5 years? My money is on Phillip – but let’s see how it goes! I’ve honestly been “over” both of these contestants for several weeks now and I don’t know that I’ve ever been so unenthusiastic for a finale… Skylar/Joshua was my pick for the finale and I think they’d have made things a bit more exciting.
Jessica – I Have Nothing - I feel like a broken record, but she just doesn’t make me FEEL anything with her singing! She can sing but if you can’t get people to have an emotional response then what is the point?
Phillip – Stand By Me – This performance didn’t move me either. Maybe it’s because it is 12:30am and I just got back from a concert but I’m BORED.
Jessica – The Prayer – See above comment.
Phillip – Movin’ Out – Phillip wins round 2. (I didnt really think there was a winner for Round 1.)
Jessica – Not all that impressed with the song.
Phillip – Really liked this song, not sure I totally was digging on the performance though. But Id give Round 3 to Phillip…
Well, I’m sticking with Phillip winning, I think. Honestly if Jessica wins it just means they will never get rid of the freaking judges save and I. HATE. THAT.
-Why are they singing Runaway Baby, a song Josh did already solo?
-Joshua should leave the dancing and tricks to the pros lol
-My mom thought it was “cool” for Phillip’s duet to be with John from CCR.
-Glad Joshua got to sing w/ Fantasia – but WHAT was she wearing!?
-The Jessica/Jennifer thing with Jimmy just proves what a dumbdumb he is.
-Do they have a stylist on this show? Chaka’s outfit was awful too
-Jessica and Phillip invited someone to the finale top 3 week – did Joshua too? Did that person still get to come?
-If Rihanna isn’t singing w/ a contestant, she shouldn’t take up time on the finale.
-Skylar and Reba was great!
-Steven Tyler is nuts
-Beautiful performance from Jessica – but is she going to get to perform with someone?
-Colton and Heejun starting a song. EW.
-This guy performance made me realize how much stronger the girls were this season
-The phone book gag was pretty funny
-Thought I liked JLo… until she came out to perform in a Yankees hat. EW. (But at least its not a cat suit?)
-Ace and Diana are ENGAGED!? whaaaaat.
-I think this Bee Gees medley is going to make my ears bleed.
-WOW Jennifer Holiday got into that performance
And Phillip won!
And I loved how he was crying and couldn’t sing – but kept playing the guitar.
