Who was YOUR favorite tonight?
It will be interesting to hear what Phillip's original music is like...Drew2k said:Jessica sang great on three of her songs, Philip sang great on two. I don't think his first song was that great.
That being said, I absolutely LOVED the Philip Philips original song ... Randy was so right, it evoked Mumford and Sons, and for me erased criticism that he's nothing but a Dave Matthews imitator. I can now see Philip singing albums like this last song - and being very successful.
Not really directed at you, but...Drew2k said:I have a feeling Jessica will win this...
I obviously still haven't watched it yet...hdtvfan0001 said:Jessica Round One....Phillip lightly won Round Two...Jessica fizzled out Round Three. Phillip will likely win.
I'd agree with all those observations, and would add one more.Holydoc said:Let me just say I hate the fact that the contestants have to sing an "original" song written for them dictated by Idol and be judged on it. A contestant could be severely hurt in this competition at the end just because someone else gave them a song that was not right for their voice or style. Sure let them sing the song at the final show, but don't judge them on something beyond their control.
Now off the soapbox.... I think Phillip has this in the bag given the crowds reactions last night and his unique quality that Jessica just doesn't seem to posses.
That's true. To machavez's point, someone just commented on a talk show that if P2 wins, the last four idol winners will have been "white guys with guitars". Will be interesting to see if the streak continues.Doug Brott said:Also, I think P2 should win at this point, but over the years there are a lot of "shoulds" that turned into "didn'ts."
Missy and I feel exactly the same way. Jessica is a karaoke imitator of other singer's style."Richard" said:Jessica only does well when she is imitating someone else. Any other contestant would be chastised for not trying to be original, but she got a pass all season. Try to get her to sing an original song and she flops, just like last night. She is not an artist, she is just a singer, and a pretty bland one at that. There is nothing about her that sets her apart from other singers.
Phillip should win, but who knows with the current voting system. He may be better off with a less restrictive recording contract. One where he has control.
This is why the 12-year old girl vote is so important ...Steve said:That's true. To machavez's point, someone just commented on a talk show that if P2 wins, the last four idol winners will have been "white guys with guitars". Will be interesting to see if the streak continues.
