Phillip Phillips performed ‘You Got It Bad’ tonight on American Idol the Top 7. It is the same group as last week after the judges saved Jessica Sanchez with their only save last week. This week each contestant will be on the American Idol stage twice, the theme for this week is Now and Then. We are getting awfully close, can you imagine how much stress the contestants are feeling?
The “singers” had to pick a #1 hit song from 2000-2012 and then sing an older soul song. The mentor for tonight’s show is Jimmy Levine.
Phillip Phillips hasn’t been in the bottom three yet, Jimmy can’t believe he picks up his guitar again. Jimmy is nervous about the song, but loves Phillip’s interpretation. Phillip is singing “You Got It Bad” by Usher. (Phillip gets the first standing ovation of the night)
Judges Comments: Steven said, “You fool us all the way down the line, you have melody now, the band was great, just great.” Jennifer said, “That was so sexy (Phillip is blushing) and I love when you show that side of you, a great singer can sing any song and you most certainly are.” Randy said, “I smile every time I see you because this year we have a true artist on the stage, you are always original and yourself, you don’t need to listen to anyone.”
