i think Jessica should win the AI. or it will be better if they will letPhilip to sing Jessicas song and vice versa and find out who will make the best version…. Obviously, Philip had a good song for him and Jessica had an “okay” song. . . Steven said ” I think this is not a song for you ” so American Idol would be fair if they will let them to sing both songs. . .

I honestly can’t pick who will win. They’re both really good. It feels like a 50/50 really, because they’re both amazing singers. Even if they don’t win idol, I bet someone will take them anyways.

From day one, I thought it should’ve been Colton and Jessica in the finale. BUT, Phillip is very unique. He’s compared all the time to Dave Matthews. That is one hell of a compliment! But Psquared puts interesting twists into songs that I love. Jessica sings amazing, everyone knows that, but she does oversing at times and is pretty boring on the stage. I would pay to see Phillip live, not Jessica. I’m more intrigued to see what Phillip’s album sounds like. Not Jessica’s. To me, the 3rd performance is the one that matters in the finale. Phillip BLEW JESSICA AWAY with “Home”. I’ve played that song today to people that hate Idol and they thought that song should be on the radio right now. Neither person wrote their own song last night, but they got to pick which song would be their first single. Jessica’s was bad. Phillip’s should be on the radio right now. Can’t wait to see Phillip when he tours after the Idol tour is over!!!

i absolutely love how jessica sanchez sang all of her songs.. even the last one,. they thought it was a crap but no one would disagree, that she made it BETTER. i guess, that is how a singer should be. a persona that could sing songs that aren’t good, but somehow, had managed to make it BEST.

to my disappointment, i really did thought P2’s last song was original. But then again, it wasn’t. that was greg holden’s (not sure of the name but you could actually search it on youtube) “Home”. but P2 sang it well. But i guess, there is something wrong with the production? by simply watching it, i really felt the whole production team and american idol management really wanted p2 to win. it was sort of biased! it was undeniably unfair to jessica, to let her sing, the song the AI Team had made for her, and suddenly telling her in front of American citizens and to the whole world as well that it wasn’t the right song for her?! it was clearly sabotaging! it was like forcing her to say sorry to the mistake or an error, which she wasn’t guilty of.

Philip has an interesting sound, the first time you hear it
after that every song sounds the same, He has indeed
“Found Himself” and it will be more of the same from
here on out!
To those who say Jessica still needs to find Herself, “She’s 16
years old!” of coarse She’s still finding Herself! But Her ability to
transform Herself each week and bring a unique performance each
time was Genius! She kept it interesting and showed Her range as
an artist, She has a unique voice with quality not seen for Decades.
We are all honored to have had the opportunity to see the early
stages of Her career and I hope and believe that She will continue
to deliver a wide range of songs/hits for a very long time! Please
take care of yourself Jessica, we’ve lost to many great talents
already!
It should have been Jessica and Josh in the Finale, Phillip has no
business being there!

Should be Jessica Sanchez the Winner for American Idol, she song a meaningful in a human life and nature… Not Phillips he can’t song higher note ever from the first to the last performance. So therefore, Jessica Sanchez should the American Idol -“Winner”…….

I’m a great grandmother who loves every kind of music. Jessica should have left the show before Skylar and especially before Joshua. She is a Whitney wanna-be. Even as sick as he is, Phillip is so unique and that last song “Home”..I want a copy now.

jessica was very boring last night. i was very disappointed, b/c she’s my favorite. that said, she may have outsmarted us all and played the voters by being “safe” and not too urban and diva-ish (remember, the voters didn’t vote for her when she sang with the most ‘tude). to me, phillip one the night, though i’m usually very ambivalent about him.

I’m in my late 30’s and I even voted for Phillip!!! He’s amazing a true artist. Jessica yea shes good but I’d never pay to see her live, or buy her cd.. she bores me to tears. she screams.. maybe cuz shes 16 trying to be 30.. I dont know.

JESSICA SHOULD WIN. PHILLIP HAS A HORRIBLE VOICE. THE ONLY REASON HE MADE IT THRU IS BECAUSE TEENAGE GIRLS FIND HIM CUTE & THEY ARE THE ONE’S VOTING. JESSICA IS BY FAR THE MOST TALENTED. I SAID THAT FROM DAY ONE. I’LL BE WATCHING TONIGHT & HOPING SHE WINS. EITHER WAY, SOMEONE WILL SIGN HER TO A RECORDING CONTRACT.

l agreed with steven tyler having jessica 2-1 up against phillip. Both are like prince & princess of pop waiting in line to be crowninto the world of pop divas & favourites of people around the world. I guess phillip’s last song with all the jess & glamour was meant its their last. Jessica’s last song was nothing to shout about. Phillip was indeed the same accept its better than jessica. Listening to scotty you can say how much he has groom to be somebody whose cd i do owned. I cant wait for a groom jessica’s album and her fantastic voice thats to come if shes really keeoing it up. As for phillip i wish him best of luck. He probably needs lots of publicity than jessica to make him a world icon.

They did it to Katherine McPhee when the judges did all they could to make Taylor Hicks the winner that treat though his vocal talent never came close to hers. So now we have a repeat. Phillips squeaked through many Weeks and should have been eliminated. Then they give Jessica a song that couldn’t show off he Phillips r voice, but gave squeaky Phillips a matching parade. His voice still sucks and Jennifer should be the winner, but the fix is in.

I so agree –t thought that when I heard the songs they were given to perform — that it was a fix for Philip. The song they gave Jessica was horrible and did not show the range of her voice and was too slow and boring — Give someone a lousy song with bad lyrics and no range of tones, of course they will not come out great … and they did that to Jessica. That was so dishonest and bad … I love Jessica. Philip is like Scotty McCreary … I did not think he was the most talented and I do not buy his cds or albums … he is just so-so. And that is Phlip — so so. The finalists should have been Jessica and Joshua and Joshua should have won it!!!

Last night they Idol gave the moment to PP. The last song was given to PP to shine. No offense but they waited until the end to let PP shine to win it. I must admit Jessica has a long way and gave a record the first asian american to be in the finale.

Angela – this isn’t “racist” at all. I’m Filipino, and a fan of Jessica Sanchez, but I’d have to admit, Phillip Phillips hit it out of the park with that last song, and Jessica fell flat on hers. It had nothing to do with him being white, cute or whatever else. It was a really good song, and he executed it perfectly. Win or lose, both of them will be fine.

It’s not fair that they made PP’s last song a big production with the drummers and all… and they made a boring last song for Jessica… had they picked a different song for Jessica with an upbeat soulful tune and with the same show production as PP’s, the judge will change their mind about jessica’s last song for sure!!!!!!! .. they should have sang the same finale song, like how they did before…

I so agree — it would have been better if they had both sang the song that was given to Philip. If they had both sang the song Jessica got, Philip could not have hit most of the notes and he would have looked bad…
Just not fair! Give someone a blah song with no production and give someone a good song with a big production — looks like you are trying to influence and pick the winner right there American Idol producers!! Shame on you.

C’est la vie. It’s exactly same like Al Idol 7 when David Cook shocked people with his winning, how can he compared with David Archuleta. The winner sometimes can be not the best, but the lucky one.
