    If he wins over Jessica, it will be.

    IMO, it'll be the only explanation short of collusion and vote tampering on the part of the judges and producers.

    I picked the two "J" for the final two at the start, with Hollie in the Top 3, and Phillip in the Top 4. These were personal preferences... not predictions by the way.

    That being said... I have been reminded multiple times... this is "American Idol"... not "The Voice"... not that "The Voice" is about the voice all the time either (cough... Jesse Campbell... cough).

    Honestly... I loved the Top 7, and the majority of them... particularly the Top 3 since they are all so different, are all winners in my book!

    Hormones will help...

    However, I disagree with your statement!

    Can someone who voted for Jessica and Joshua tell me how voting was Wednesday night?!

    Voting was CRAZY for Phillip on Wednesday. My Uncle tried multiple times on Wednesday night to vote, and only got through once! I got through multiple times, but I'll be honest, I was getting a TON of busy signals... and (I was using my cell) multiple times where it'd just hang and eventually the Verizon lady would come on and tell me the line had been disconnected. :confused:

    Will be weird to hear Phillip sing We've Got Tonight twice in a row, but that was definitely his Idol "shining moment". I don't see he has much of a choice. :shrug:

    And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going would be my choice for Jessica.

    I don't think it's the first time someone's done a song two weeks in a row...

    Zap2it.com had similar feelings:

    Jessica's "I Will Always Love You" makes a LOT of sense.

    Sadly, Phillip's two best were in the last couple of weeks. I started to say that "U Got It Bad" might be a decent choice as I was more fond of it in person than I was on the show, and then I realized the Usher song he sang in concert was "Nice & Slow." He did it AWESOME... not something I would expect from a white boy... :eek2:

    Jessica has an advantage in that she's had more moments on the show to pull from...

    I'm okay with the results. Can't say that I knew who would end up in the finals or will win like I was with Adam & Kris.
    (Though it is looking like PP)
    Thought that you might have been the $10 guy.

    LOL!! No... I didn't have a sign, and with a record contract coming his way, I'd probably have mentioned more money... though I'll be honest, the amount is probably what made the sign the funnier. :D

    I'll have to later post a picture of this boy they showed during the footage. If memory serves, he's the boy who was decided to mock the screaming girls by proposing to Phillip. Phillip started laughing, as did I... it was HILARIOUS!!

    I wanted to be among the footage. I was right by that car for a good portion of time and the cameraman got me multiple times. Then again, I could have looked like a complete fool... they were trying to make sure folks were making a lot of noise for the video, and I was there whooping it up with the rest of them... ;)


    There's a couple of parade/concert things I remembered I'll probably add in the next couple of days...

    Well then, I guess that clinches it. By AI standards to-date, she'll lose to P2. :rolleyes:

    LOL!!

    My money is still on P2 winning, but Jessica has a potential secret weapon... I just don't know if enough of her fans will act on it.


    Supposedly, Jessica has a TON of international fans. Voting is U.S. only, and I'm not even sure this is possible, but I wonder if some of her international fans could pay for a U.S. number and call in to vote?

    I've actually been busy during the week .. I haven't even gotten a chance to watch the performance show from the Top 4 week (yes, I know who was voted off).

    As for the final 2 ... After Colton left, I'm not particularly surprised by Phillip. Jessica surprised me a bit, but she gutted it out over the season. I still fully think that she is too young this year - I think if she would have missed and was on the show next year, she would have been hands down the go-to winner. That being said, she might just pull it off despite that note-stutter this week.

    I don't have a clue who is going to win this thing now. Yes, it was very clear cut to me last year and there simply was no drama each week. It's been a bit more intense this time around as anyone in the Top-4 (or even Top-6) could have won. I didn't think that when there were still a dozen folks left.

    Being busy is a good thing... :D

    Drew2k went missing from the discussion as well, but I've seen him in other threads, so I didn't think much of it, but you simply disappeared! ;)

    I spotted me in a YouTube video:

    [YOUTUBE]http://youtu.be/c6k0JGyW-qg[/YOUTUBE]

    <iframe width="960" height="720" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/c6k0JGyW-qg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I make my first appearence at the 3:06 mark... and occasionally pop up afterwards. I'm quite featured at the 4:40 mark... then at the 4:53 mark... 5:08 and several seconds after... 5:17 and the following seconds... 5:28 and onward... 5:54 in and out for the next so many seconds 5-6 seconds.

    My Mom and Uncle showed up several times in the video as well as Part 2 of it.

    PQ sucks, but still cool nonetheless...

    EDIT: I'm having trouble embedding the video, but here's the link: http://youtu.be/c6k0JGyW-qg?t=4m39s
