Hello Lotters, I don't know why she sung those songs, but it was way behind her and not something worth getting you excited for. Didn't really quite the Song finale that i was expecting to. the songs chosen for her aren't that good, i think it's a sabotage. Another thing is that she could have chosen this song as her way to gain the audience feelings. Not a referral link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNWkZVobPDg or this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn6Uh6SF7M4 Unfortunately, for some reasons i have no clue, she was FULL Ballads and i know it didn't spark. Phillip Phillips was a done slow melody but it definitely caught the ladies Hey, If Jessica wasn't expecting the crown, then i should to. hehe Have a nice day.

though there is a huge chance that the 5 headed WGWG may happen, there is still a chance she might still in cos she still get positive reviews to some Americans,Vote for the worst is really hardcore against Jessica, They already say things why PP should be voted, sorry to PP fans but a 5th WGWG is kinda dangerous for American Idol. WGWG always got abandoned by fans after the contest, a person with a more loyal fanbase in the US should win... David Cook, Lee Dewyze, Kris Allen are all abandoned by fans and dropped from their record deal.... Scotty cant chart outside the US(actually he cant chart outside the southern states) Kelly Clarkson,Carrie Underwood, Fantasia Barino and Jordin Sparks are still relevant in the charts. so yeah Jessica winning is the best thing for the show because keeps idol from being obsolete. Its actually for the sake of the show. people had already moved to the voice and X-factor. but I already accept the outcome if the WGWG trend continues.

according to an mtv article i read earlier, breaking the wgwg trend may just save the show. and the writer was actually having a plea that if people love the show... then people should vote for jessica sanchez to bring back american idol in the charts of the music industry... and probably the tv ratings as well. true... david, lee and kris were all let go by their label. and it's not a good indicator for an american idol winner. especially when an idol winner can make up to 6 albums for their record deal and earn millions out of it.

Hello CaptainAlbertWhisker, I have watch the performance again and am starting to think that I've been deceived by the judges. I believe they had a secret plan to voted off Joshua or Phillip by giving them standing ovations. when they were giving Jessica Standing Ovations, she almost got eliminated. i think this is why they are giving the same medicine for Phillips so that the people would be incline to vote for Jessica.

The teenage fanbase who votes for the WGWG they have a crush on have a short term memory, one a new cute guy comes around, they will move on to him, Thats why all WGWG winners are in failure. the runner ups of the WGWG have stronger careers. I have nothing against WGWG but they were better if they were not discovered out of singing contests.successful male singer song writers are those who didnt succeed by a TV show. PP's career might be better if he is a runner up, cos the WGWG who are succeeds more if they were runner ups or they lost. Daughtry wont be successful he won his season. Fans symphatize more with WGWG who didnt win. producers are more successful on marketing female winners cos they have a more loyal fanbase. the past WGWG winners never finished their record deal.

I voted for Jessica for weeks now.. I knew she was going to win and was sort of shocked that she didn't. However, I knew with all the hype here in GA over Philip that he might just win... and he had lots of people voting over and over for him. I was voting nearly 50 times for Jessica when I voted. All in all.. I'm happy with the outcome. I love Philip too. He is a star and so is Jessica. She may even be more famous than Philip. Look at Adam Lambert.. he is much more famous than the guy that won and I can't even remember his name... he's not all that famous in my mind if I don't even know his name.

Hello Pointless-Q, Seeing Jessica not feeling bitter and more content to be on the top 2 and possible contracts would really be considered a blessing for her and Phillip. Some of them also voted for Jessica Sanchez, but i just can't understand how she lost when there's a unity between the Mexican and Filipino Communities that were united. I felt it's rigged specially when Motolla came into the picture with Jimmy Lovine

I think it is rigged in one way. I think they influence the votes just like Simon did. They didn't need all those people when Simon was there. Whatever he said the voters seemed to listen to them. Now the voters seem to go along with the judges and with Jimmy. If you notice they always tear one person up that they want to get voted off. The oldest girl.. I forget her name... they picked on her and she felt picked on. She could have won Idol too.. I didn't hear a thing about Jessica on the news, but every newscast from Atlanta I heard about Philip. I figured that with so much hype he would probably win and he doesn't even have the dynamics that she does. It makes me wonder if a girl will ever win on Idol again.

I agree, it wasn't one of her best once again. It's sad because she's already there and only one step away from the gold. They could have gave her a song choice that would suit her best and that would let her shine on the finale just like PP's songs. With all the band and the lightning effects of PP's Home, it made him really really shine and looks like we've got a winner then. But then, it's the people's power to decide, let's just hope all our votes were enough to let our idol win! Win or lose, Jessica's a winner already. I even heard she and J.Lo will be coming to he Philippines this November for a concert, hope it really does happen and I hope they will come to Cebu

Well, for me, it's like this. Jessica wasn't all that bad at all last night as the judges said. But this is what they do in order to tell you who they want to win, it's already apparent to me who will win this evening, they did this to both Colton and Hollie. They have been pushing for a Jessica and Phillip final two and now I see them pushing for a Phillip win. I would bet on it. I'm only watching tonight so I can see Colton possibly sing and with a cool group or musician. I'd also love to see Steven Tyler play with the entire band on there, Aerosmith. That would make me happy, I don't care to see PP win.

Hello Nailtech, I do now that Colton chose a wrong song and that cost him to be eliminated. Hollie did the same thing before she got eliminated into the top 4. I missed him playing or singing in American Idol, i mean last season was really cool for him to do that. i guess they are just serious with this while damn other project of theirs.

I just don't buy it that they chose the wrong song, just cause the judges said they did. They choose the songs they like from a short list. I think Phillip Phillip chose the wrong songs on a number of occasions and he is still there. Joshua was always stood up for and told he should be the winner, etc. So why isn't he up there instead of PP. I don't get it. :(

I stopped watching AI ever since Adam Lambert wasn't chosen as a winner even though everyone could see that he was a better performer than Kris Allen. Even Ryan Seacrest was disappointed with the results and even predicted that in less than a year people will forget Kris Allen, which became true even if Adam tried his best to lay low to give way to the AI winner. So even if Philip Philips win the title, Jessica may still be the winner in the end when her singing career flourishes like other AI contestants who never won the title but have albums up till now.

WGWG's failed to sell records in the last 5 years, Its will be better for Phillip to be a runner up, cos WGWG's sells more records if they don't win. 5 WGWG in a row will make Idol weaker and even get cancelled, People who are sick of WGWG's will transfer to X-factor and The Voice which is proven since The voice defeated Idol in ratings.

Hello Anne25penn, How are you my friend? I miss you I think American Idol is nothing more than a huge exposure to the talents who are prey to the producers for them to start a career. I am glad that Jessica was not so expecting much about their competition with Phillip. they seemed to be comfortable with each other, like the seemed giggling Phil Jess moment but we hope jessica would win.

hi lk! how much of a choice does one have when 2 out of their 3 performances in the finale night... they cannot choose for themselves? first song was chosen by executive producer simon fuller. second song was contestant's choice as their favorite performance in the season. third song is an idol winner's song written for them that will be released as a single if they were crowned as the season's best. jessica's first song "i have nothing" was a power ballad by whitney houston. jessica did great but i remember shannon magrane performed this the week of top 13 and shannon was in the bottom 3 (female). i don't know how simon makes his choices, but even phillip's stand by me... may not be an excellent choice too. between the 2, personally i'd say jessica performed better. but i would have wanted, again personally, an even more powerful song like "listen" for jessica. for the 2nd song, i don't think jessica could have chosen "i surrender" and "don't stop the music" as you have suggested. they were not part of her performances this season. according to her official idol interview/diary, her favorite performance is "stuttering". now i wondered why she did "the prayer". but it is an emotional song and she still did great there. but i missed her do-or-die rendition in the top 40 that made me cry. phillip's "movin out" is also not exciting for a finale material either. my personal choice for jessica would have been "everybody has a dream" coz some of the lines there are quite apt for the finale and she did have a standing o that week she performed it. but many say that her "and i'm telling you..." would have been powerful or "dance with my father" would have been quite the emotional numbers. but personally between the 2, jessica did better in round 2. for the 3rd song... who gets to choose really and how can they tailor a song to the voice and character of a singer/performer in literally less than a week? "change nothing" and "home" are not exciting numbers for them. and i don't know who did better between the 2. perfecting a song takes time. releasing a single with less than a week preparation to study/learn, rehearse, record, perform live... that's just crap. i can't imagine joshua singing either songs either. hehe but this is just my opinion. please don't be disappointed with jessica. some forces are not within her control. she did sing great given the material. what more could we ask of her? as part of the audience, it may look easy... but to be in the contestants' shoes... come on... it may not be a showstopper-kind-of-finale... like a jessica-joshua showdown could have been... but putting a show together for less than a week is not an easy feat. i had hoped that their prep time could have been longer, and song choices more diverse, and performances should have the full-length versions like the studio version. i'd say goodluck to both of them! whoever gets crowned in 15 hours or so, deserves it... be it jessica (my favorite) or phillip.

Hello Myles, the reason why I wanted her to sing those because of the category personal song choice. those songs would have been a lot more hype compare to the ALL Ballads that she did. i think she got scared to boot when the judges criticized her for trying to be creative, but contrary for Phillip, which they just being lenient to him. Jessica can do more but she want to just put up with the judges. because onces idol is out she can do than just ballads.

the only song choice they can have (round 2) is the one they have already performed in the season (top 40, top 25, top 13... all the way to top 3). they can't do the ones they haven't sung this season 11. even phillip sang the one he did during billy idol week for his round 2 performance. if simon did not give jessica a whitney song in round 1, maybe her best option for round 2 is "i will always love you" which bloggers found to be her most memorable song and the season 11 idol song which had the most number of views in youtube. anyways, win or not... jessica is already a winner!

I just read the review about this on yahoo.com, i have not seen the video to be able to tell if she did great. but as for the choices of song i have read here, those are quite common ones why did she choose that? anyways base from the review on yahoo.com the end part says that Phillips did well on his song HOME... let us wait for the results!

Hello Jazel, you can check it on ricky. org but i didn't want to because i know it wasn't the finale material. though jessica is happy already, i felt so bad about how she was sabotage there. i totally feel that it wasn't like the jordan sparks moment for her. they simply choose a song for her with out checking on her vocals first..tsk tsk tsk sad.

i cannot help but also agree on this one, why would they give her such song that would not show case her voice? hmmm right sabotage. unless the votes will also be in properly.

I liked her first song but wasn't feeling the rest of her songs. I'm not a fan of Phillip Phillips but really liked the rendition that he did of the Bob Seeger song last week. Can't understand why he didn't do that song this week.

Hello LaureninLA, I don't know who chose those songs for her but i feel sabotage here. and i tthink she really chose a not so good song this time. i bet people slept during the whole finale here. except for Phillips performance whom i think given the standing ovation coming from the judges. poor song choices by both performers, and producers. very dull but a bit entertaining.

I think that you are right and it isn't the first time that I felt a bit of sabotage with Jessica. I think that when the Jackson 5 song was picked for her that it was a very poor song choice as well. I think everyone was surprised that in spite of everything, Joshua was voted out instead of her,

The song does matter. I haven't seen this but I am sure the other guy did better because I think Jessica still needs to grow up when it comes to showmanship. She has little of this.
• Philippines
23 May 12
Hello Cutie18f, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? I don't see her hating or bashing Phillip Phillips have you been watching the damn show? or maybe you haven't watch the show. Let tell you that she has been very mature in handling the situation here in the competition. maybe she's a bit off because she's introverted and shy but there's no way that she has no sportsmanship. I do believe she is a good student and willing to grow up more with all the mentoring that she needs, but accusing her of unsportsmanlike is so unreal..the girl had been controlling her emotions from the very beginning and people thought of it as NO emotion. well, they're Wrong she does her best to be strong. I am very sure Jessica did better, which was btw supported by a lot of Commentaries who have watch the show. the judges are unbelievable to boot

dear LK, I can say she's cute when she's still younger (lols) She reminds me of Lea Salonga- who knows, if she can't make it to the AI, maybe something bigger is waiting for her...

Hello Jai-sis, I just can't force myself to like much on the performances because it's been sung before and she should have a new twist of ballads and not use to already sung ones. too bad though, the road or song not taken, she could have pull it better with those songs. i hope she does make it big after wards.
