American Idol 2012 Season Finale Spoilers & Preview

American Idol  2012 Season Finale Spoilers & Preview

Last week on American Idol, uber talented Joshua Ledet was sent home. Did you see the episode? If you missed the show you can read our full performance recap HERE and the results recap HERE.

The season is almost over, the last performance show is tonight and then tomorrow the winner will be announced. The final two contestants are Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez, Personally, Phillip Phillips is my favourite to win but Jessica’s odds are higher because of her strong Filipino following and tell the truth, it’s almost like the show is fixed. After all, shouldn’t Jessica win because she is the best singer and not because she is part Filipino?

If Jessica wins the Idol crown, it will be a major upset for a lot of people as although she is a very good singer, Phillip Phillips is truly the more talented contestant.

Jimmy Iovine thinks Jessica has a chance to win, but only if she pulls a perfect score of “10” on each performance. Now that has not always happened, proof is when Jessica released her “inner cheetah” on stage. Video here! If she wants to win, she better keep the cheetah caged up!

Tonight, the final 2 will be singing songs from three themes: 1. his or her favorite song from the whole series. 2. One song selected by Idol creator Simon Fuller. 3. his or her individual “new” single.

Last week, producer Nigel Lithgoe revealed who was his favourite contestant, “I promised I would reveal my favorite when they were voted off the show so….. it was Joshua. However, I am thrilled for Jessica & Phillip.” I can understand how he feels, Joshua was by the far the most talented of the three, check out his performing “A Mans Mans Mans World” HERE and you will see what I mean.

Jessica and Phillip talked about their final performances in an American Idol press release, you can watch it below.

Wednesday night is the big night, it’s the grand finale and Idol will entertain us with performances by Rihanna, Aerosmith, and last year’s Idol winner Scotty McCreery. We’ll also see the return of the Top 12 as they take the stage for performances. Rumours are that there will be surprise guests as in previous years and for all you Joshua fans out there, don’t be surprised if Fantasia doesn’t join him for a duet!

Wow, what do you think about the songs that Phillip and Jessica have to sing? Most importantly, who do you think is going to win and be crowned the 2012 Idol winner? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!

    My vote goes to Phillip and his originality.  Jessica sounds like Whitney, Jessica sounds like Beyonce, but Jessica doesn’t sound like Jessica.  She’s a very good mimic.  Phillip is the real deal.

       Jessica is not a mimic, she is very good and has a god given talent.  Phillip is also very good.  Are you a music expert.

         I’d totally prefer to sound like Beyonce or Whitney… Than sounding like… Dave Matthews? LOL… Phillip is so a crappy singer!

    • Hithere22199

      Phillips sounds like Dave Matthews, John Mayer . ..  the real deal?  No.  

  • Linda

    My vote is for Jessica. She’s the only reason I invested so much time in watching AI this year. Good luck Jessica!

  • Victor Ocampo

    Doroty Gale, do you believe the show is fixed?  So funny!  You should be more responsible on what you say on your column.  Filipinos can’t vote if they are in the Philippines.  If Jessica will win, it’s not just because of the Filipinos in the U.S who voted for her but the rest of all Americans. 
    Jessica will prove that she won because she is the best talent among AI contestants.  It’s Steven Tyler himself who predicted that she’ll be the last one standing and he believed so.
    There judges and not of them are Filipinos, but they were all impressed on most of Jessica’s performance.
    Grow up Dorothy Gale.  Accept Jessica can beat Phillip Phillips not because of overwhelming support internationally but because America loves her!

    I agree with Victor. You sound so unprofessional and should be ashamed of what you wrote. They both are amazing in their own way. You don’t have to trash Jessica in order to make him look better. I don’t understand how you can be a writer on this column. Just idiots.
