Agreed, completely.But I hope Jessica wins. Because she can do the processed Idol pop and survive.Philip will be better off losing, then signing with someone who will let/help him do his thing.
I agree that while Phillip had the better overall night, Jessica had the best performance of the night with The Prayer. I'm not liking her chances, but for the sake of the franchise, Jessica might be the better winner. Five WGWGs in a row is just a terribly discouraging pattern, no matter how deserving each of them may or may not have been.
I wonder how much input the contestants actually have im picking their singles. Phillip's song fit him iike a glove, whereas Jessica's single was wretched. I planned on voting for Jessica a few times because I didn't want another WGWG, but after seeing those two final performances, I just couldn't do it.
Phil's song was one of the better coronation songs. I still have nightmares about "Do I Make You Proud."
