Jessica probably had her best night of the competition. "My All" was a great, stripped back song for her, thanks Randy for forcing her to not power through a song for two straight minutes. I think this paled to P2 & Joshua's first offerings because of their songs being more memorable ("Beggin") or full of glory notes ("I'd Rather Go Blind")
I loved her voice on the karaoke classic, "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", although I wish she had chosen a different song. Once again, props to Jessica to sticking to the songs already on the cleared list.[/sarcasm] Ever since she went to get "Stuttering" cleared and ended up at the bottom in votes, she refuses to take a risk.
"I'll Be There" is an ancient song, but I loved it for her...she sounded great, and I think her studio version will be better. I'd love to see her again next week.Joshua
He emerged as the winner of the night for me (on a weaker night, at that), pretty much doing a decent job on each song. I wasn't a fan of him choosing "No More Drama", but it's whatever. I think his best performance of the night was "I'd Rather Go Blind", mainly because I HATE "Imagine", and I'm tired of the Mary song (even with it being song on idol for the first time.)
If I could have Joshua AND Jessica in the finale, I'd love to see that happen. Too bad it can't happen, with...Phillip
LOVED his first performance of "Beggin", and then everything then on was just standard Phillip Phillips. I've been tired of hi shtick for WEEKS. 'd rather be suffering through the nasal stylings of Colton at this point, at least he switched it up. I know that singing isn't just about glory notes and belting, but P2's lack of range is unfortunate, and out of all of the finalists, he is the one who really hasn't improved during the course of the season. His low performances don't even seem that bad because even at his best, it's somewhat mediocre, or in need of an assisting vocalist ("Volcano"). Still, he'll probably bring the 'suckitude' during next week's finale.
What I'd Like:
Phillip Going HOME
What I Predict
Jessica will leave us, or Joshua for the shock boot and Phillip will be standing with him in the villain role.
