Phillip Phillips: We're All 'So Numb' Now On 'Idol'

Phillip Phillips American Idol Top 2

After months of a 24/7 planned schedule on ‘American Idol,’ the final two contestants are ready to be done…for now.

Phillip Phillips has had quite the eventful year so far. After being chosen for American Idol, he began to have problems with his kidneys and even had to have an operation while he was competing on the hit reality show. Now he’s made it to the final two and he’s ready for the process to be done!

“We’re all so numb because there’s nothing we can really feel because it’s almost over,” the 21-year-old blues singer told reporters after performances May 16. “We prayed before we got on stage and were talking about how much fun we want to have because we’re not in competition and everybody’s so different.”

Luckily for Phillip, he made it to the final two, along with 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez. Even though he’s numb, he’ll have one more week to prove himself to America.

Who do YOU think will win this season of American Idol?

Josh is already the winner, The whole world is waiting for some more of his talent. This is only the beginning of his fame. This young man has a gift and Jennifer, Randy and Steve already know that,

I think Philip should win, but Idol wants Jessica. It will be nice to see Jessica sing something other than a ballad and a song of her own. Maybe with a little more beat to it and fast or a Pink song. Philip has had to prove his self so much that he can dress it up and do it in his own tone. Maybe Jessica can do a Katy Perry or Madonna lets step it up a notch!

Honestly, Phillips is more of a country music singer and it has no versatility in as far as vocal ability is concern, Jessica has a wide vocal range and she can practically sings any kind of music you put in front of her, so my choice is definitely Jessica. This girl has still a lot to improve in her singing considering that he is just 16.

I picked Jessica from the first airing of this years AI. It’s not even close when you compare talent vs talent. Hollie could sing right along side Carrie Underwood and Skylar could rock the country scene like the best. Truth be told is most of this years artists had better vocal talent and album selling power then P. Phillips.

Letdet has great a great gospel voice but who wants to listen to that for long if at all. Not many. I already own songs from Testone, Sanchez, Skylar and Hollie. Best AI season ever i must admit from a talent perspective. Phillips on the other hand is just bar band talent.
