    As much as I would like Phillip to win, I don't trust that the producers haven't rigged the results, and I think they desperately want a female winner. Thus, I think Jessica will win...

    Because there hasn't been a Latino or Filipino winner before. The Latino and Filipino fans might vote with their hearts.

    For sure. That's why I figured him singing "We've Got Tonight" once more would have made it no contest at all. I think they were all waiting to hear it again and may be disappointed he didn't sing it. As a result, Jessica may still have a chance, but who knows??? :shrug:

    Whatever you want to say about Jessica (who totally KILLED on The Prayer, BTW), smiley-simp PP is LITERALLY aping Dave Mathews, vocally and physically, in every song. Exactly the same as a good Elvis impersonator. Yet that doesn't bother anybody. Astonishing. Standards could not get any lower.

    And the judging has been a race to the bottom all season. 3 lovesick, pandering, slavish groupie/courtesans embarrassing themselves more and more week after weak. No wonder J Lo wants out, she hasn't a shred of professional credibility left standing.

    Give me Jimmy, Simon and say, a Mary K. Blige for judges and you'd have a half-decent show.

    My thoughts:



    ROUND #1

    JESSICA: AWESOME!! That's all...

    PHILLIP: Ehhhh...

    ROUND #1 WINNER(S): Jessica



    ROUND #2

    JESSICA: AWESOME!! That's all...

    PHILLIP: FAR SUPERIOR to his first go around with this song. This time it came off as less angry, and with less growling, and more fun. I had something else I was going to say, but I forgot it...

    ROUND #2 WINNER(S): Jessica



    ROUND #3

    JESSICA: I liked it, and it was far superior to most of the AI originals, but it was nothing special.

    PHILLIP: AWESOMESAUCE!! Phillip lucked up in the original song lottery! He had a moment...

    ROUND #3 WINNER(S): Phillip


    FAVORITES OF THE NIGHT: Jessica & Phillip
    BOTTOM THREE PREDICTION: Jessica & Phillip :p
    WHO'S WINNING?: Phillip (I think!)

    First of all...

    Folks will need to forgive me for anything I type as it could be full of typos, incorrect English (I'm from the South, so that's pretty much a given), apocalyptic prophecies, and gobbledygook. I got off work at 5:00 A.M. last night, and I currently feel like a FREAKING ZOMBIE!!! :mad:

    You have been warned!

    You can do more than suspect that Phillip and Jessica will end up with record deals since it would be a complete change from history where the runner-up has always received an album release. Heck, I don't remember the last time a person from the Top Three didn't get an album deal...

    However, that wasn't my statement! My statement was that I found it hard to believe that Phillip won round two over Jessica... and finally watching it at home, I feel even more puzzled by your statement... though I do believe it was closer than I expected thanks to Phillip doing an improved version of the song over his first performance of it.

    To me, Jessica won rounds one and two, but Phillip managed to steal the show with Round three...

    I definitely notice it and it drives me nuts. I seriously wonder if anyone here who loves PP has ever been to or seen a Dave Mathews concert. People in this thread blast Jessica for imitation, when PP is the ultimate imitator.

    Then again, Lauren Alaina got a sappy but beautiful song last year and came in second place to Scotty McCreery whose song should not have ever been performed due to the rules set forth by the Geneva Convention.

    I disagree about Jessica...

    Agreed...

    Totally disagree about Jessica, and I think Phillip is already too far along in the competition to have that luxury. I never got a for sure answer...

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!!

    The judges wasted theirs on Casey Abrams last year, but at least Randy and Steven were wise enough to keep it this year until they really needed it.

    I think Phillip could have gone with "Volcano" which had the advantage of being a LITTLE older than "We've Got Tonight." It might not have had the same effect as the latter, but I think it would have been stronger for him than "Moving Out".

    Original songs can win or lose a contest... I learned that with a contestant on "Nashville Star."

    P2 lucked up BIG TIME last night!

    Speaking of the Geneva Convention, you REALLY like to torture me, don't you?! :lol:


    They're both different in my book... I think they both should win! Sadly, that won't happen...

    Jessica has gotten farther along than any Latino/Filipino contestant before (Allison Iraheta is probably the closest so far), but sadly, that heritage will most likely actually be a negative for Jessica. :(

    FIVE!! :eek2:

    I wondered about Simon Fuller's song choices last night...

    That being said, I don't know... Randy seemed to believe Jessica didn't have a chance of making it to the Top 2. Jimmy seemed to have given Joshua and Phillip the stronger songs during his round last week...

    I don't believe the results will be rigged...


    Then again, for two weeks in a row, Phillip's phone numbers have been having strange things occurring with them which results in less voting for him. Is it a case of the lines being pounded, or are something else?! :whatdidid

    My money is on the no intentional rigging...

    Not to mention the slightly older female demographic! This was on the news story about last night's AI viewing/voting party in Albany, GA. The only thing that really happened was that they opened the Civic Center and projected AI onto a 30-foot screen:

    While not as important, the "Cougar" vote is good to have as well...

    Have you ever been to a PP concert?! :p

    There was an artist on "The Voice" this year. He auditioned with an Usher song. If I closed my eyes, I would have told you it was Usher. Suffice it to say, that while that impressed me in one way, it did not in others.

    When I listen to P2, I hear the comparisons to DMB, but I would not confuse him for DMB. That's all I need to know...

    If we got rid of every singer who brings up comparisons to other singers, we wouldn't have that many singers.

    P2 doesn't interest us either. Because the choices are the least of our favorites I'll just read the results here.
