American Idol Season 11 Finale Performances

American Idol Season 11 Top 2 Finale Performances by Jessica Sanchez and Philip Phillips.
Sorry I was so late posting this with the videos LOL :happy:
I wanted to watch the American Idol on Star World before posting this haha
Hmm love the finale but it wasn't as powerful compared with the previous seasons.
Click HERE to see who I did vote to be the winner for this season :)

Each of them sings three songs. The first ones are chosen by the produces Simon Fuller.

1st Round:
  • Jessica Sanchez sings I Have Nothing
  • Phillip Phillips sings Stand By Me

What the Steven, J-Lo and Randy said:
"It's like a battle of the opposites," Jennifer Lopez says. J-Lo then refuses to take a stand between either singer in the first round. Randy gives Round One to Jessica.
Me? (LOL! Beware I am bias.. I prefer Phil Phillips in whatever way :a55)
Jessica Sanchez as always actually nailed it! She sings really amazing with songs like this. Whitney Houston's songs are like piece of cake to her. Everything is so easy on her with these songs. She can hit its high notes and be emotional while singing it.
Phillip Phillips doesn't sing like Jessica. He sings in his own style and this performance was quite different with how and what Jessica did. Phillip sings it in a more comfortably way and a bit sleepy but sweet.

2nd Round: their favorite song in their 24 performances in this season
  • Jessica Sanchez sings The Prayer
  • Phillip Phillips sings Movin' Out
What the Steven, J-Lo and Randy said:
"Hatch or go bad," Steven Tyler says of Phil-Phil, giving Jessica her second straight round. J-Lo gives the second round to Phil-Phil. Randy calls it a draw.
Me? (LOL! Beware I am bias.. I prefer Phil Phillips in whatever way :a55)
I'm not quite sure how to judge both of them right now lol. Jessica can sing all of those diva ballad songs!!! That's her strength and that's the songs she's gonna sing all through out this competition. But I didn't feel goosebumps on the way Jessica sang this song compared to the original singer. Hmm.. and I didn't like the way Jessica sang the high notes. It felt a bit awkward... :a61: And you're not suppose to make that song a bit of RnB!
I would like to thank for the backup performer of Phillip Phillips on this round. Yeah especially to that girl who plays saxophone! :a5: It helped make the performance good. And I enjoyed more the performance of Phillip than that of Jessica's. I felt the song more and Phillip's passion is flowing towards the listener.

3rd Round: their own written songs :)
  • Jessica Sanchez sings Change Nothing
  • Phillip Phillips sings Home

What the Steven, J-Lo and Randy said:
Randy didn't love the song, but he loved that she made something more out of the song. J-Lo wanted something more soulful and less poppy for her first single. J-Lo urges Jessica to stand up for herself as an artist when she makes her album. Tyler joins the, "Wow, that song sucked" parade. We keep cutting over to Jimmy, as Jessica basically agrees this song wasn't her.
Me? (LOL! Beware I am bias.. I prefer Phil Phillips in whatever way :a55)
Jessica's song is so ordinary and doesn't have power.. soul.. hmm I felt it was a song constructed with boring  rhythm and lyrics and only have high notes to hit! It's not a winning piece nor a soon-to-hit the billboard songs. :a10: It's not even a song I wanna hear again on the radio! It wasn't just a song that appeals me :( Sorry.. And her performance was simple.. sitting on the edge of the piano.. :a36: that's just it.
Phillip's performance was a full package! :a46: I agree with Randy.. Everything about it is amazing. Phillip showed how a :a42: good musician he is, how a good song writer he is and how a potentially good performer he can be. The song was perfect.. especially on the bridge part HOOOO--OOO--OOO-ME.. and the marching band appeared? That was just it.. even the production was for his winning.. :a55: it was indeed his night.

And here's how I voted online for the American Idol Season 11 :)
I voted from 12noon til 1pm.. around 30-40 votes
Click HERE
I am a Filipino.. and I understand if some will get mad at me not supporting Jessica Sanchez.. but I'm voting Phillip Phillips cause I think he is a better artist than Jessica (I think Phillip was a late bloomer). Nevertheless I am proud that a Fil-am got to the finals of American Idol. She has been nearly consistent all through out the season and the favorite of the crowd (and even the judges). Whoever wins the competition is not a major issue here cause both are good and proficient with their own preferred genre.. Goodluck to both of them :D

aby ♥ said...

leira said...

i love Philip Philip's too!!

Pepper Tan said...

It's Phillip Phillips for me hands down. Jessica is too overrated, in my humble opinion. We've heard to many belters in our lifetime, that it's starting to make me sick.

Pearl said...

my kids watched the AI Season 11 from start to finish, and they were very disappointed when Jessica didn't win.

Rochelle O. said...

I think Phillip is handsome! and Jessica did very good too. Thanks for sharing! (:

jellybelly said...

A lot of my friends were rooting for Jessica. She does well with Whitney Houston-Regine Velasquez type songs but I don't really go for those. They're just too loud and hurt my ears. I prefer the mellow music the Philip sings them.

As much as I love Jessica, I'm happy that Philip won. Jessica's got a lot of things ahead of her. She's young and very talented. Even if she doesn't win, she'll still be famous. As for Philip, he's cute and his last song was amazing. So, yeah. It's the right choice, America.

Allan said...

Nice performance for the two. You are correct, JS will definitely be the favorites of the Filipinos. That's is one the trait of being a Filipino, love your own.
On the other hand, both of them really deserves to be a winner. Even JS did not win, she has already many opportunities in her carreer.

I voted for Jessica Sanchez all the way :-) despite she did not win the American Idol but her talent shines already. She will sing the American national antheme in Pacquiao's fight this Sat in Las Vegas.

michi said...

i like jessica sanchez but i was not surprised if philip won the AI. i like his 3rd song "home"

Marco Polo Demo said...

All I can say is that they are both talented and as for Jessica as a Filipina, so far she's the first to Pinay to reach that far.

yuuki said...
