I love you Phillip, you're an amazing artist.  forget the negative crap people say.   Can't wait till you can go on and do what you like doing best.  It really is time for you to move on because I don't think many people appreciate who you really are.  You are way too good for this show, with that being said It doesn't matter if you don't win.  your much better off on your own anyway.....

Im really not a fan of this guy at all although I really enjoyed his first performance ....but this one just reminded me again why I really dont like him......incredibbly self indulgent and just more of the same from him.....nice to look at but thats about it!

No wonder he's VOTE FOR THE WORST'S golden boy.

 

I think Rickey has swallowed a gallon of that VTW koolaid.

Clearly a lot of people have never heard this song. He sounds EXACTLY like Dave Matthews here. Insanity. You all are too young for this song is my guess! This was my JAM in the late 90s.

Worst of the night. He whispered the song or something cause I didn't understand a damn thing he said and this pisses me off because he is coasting on something that isn't talent. This show isn't about playing a guitar so lets please vote him the hell off. He's had his 8 weeks of chances to show he has something special and he has absolutely NOTHING. time to go.

That was really bad. Maybe I could have appreciated it if I knew the song, but as it was, I couldn't even understand what he was saying or what the song was about. That was the worst P2 song all season, IMO.

I loved it , first time ever a Dave Matthews band song on idol , I hope they come on the finale result show and sing with p2. I'm sure Dave loved it, I'm sure he will be opening up for dmb sooner or later.

Symbolism. Underground indie club bricks on the video installation. Stone. Kidney stone.

Wait? So was he just talk-singing or mumble-singing here? Seems to me that the highlight of this song were the sax girl and the violinist. They rock! :))

I think I would have loved this if someone else sang it.

Or I know this is a crazy idea , the world doesn't evolve around you and people have their own interests and likes? Shocking i know.

@takakupo if you don't like Dave Matthews thats fine, but don't bash Phil for singing the song the way it was supposed to be sung.

abercrombieco2

@takakupo Scroll down and watch the video I posted , its how the song is supposed to be sung. Maybe you don't know that much about singing styles? Or music in general.

@takakupo Look up how Dave Matthews sings the song then you'll know why he sang it that way. He isn't coasting that song was amazing.

 @abercrombieco2 Well, considering the world doesn't EVOLVE around anyone, you're technically correct.

 

All I pointed out was that he's the  chosen one for "VOTE FOR THE WORST" and that is a fact. Not MY opinion.

 @abercrombieco2 I'm allowed to have an opinion about your opinion and my opinion is your opinion is wrong :P

 @abercrombieco2  @takakupo No, I don't know the scope of singing styles or a lot about music but I have a very diverse library myself and I do have my own tastes like you have yours. With my limited knowledge though, I know that Philip doesn't have a very big range nor does he hit many of his notes. I honestly have tried to invest myself in Philip because I respect Rickey's opinion since I come here pretty much every day for news and every year for Idol or X-factor, but I just can't get into him. 

 

If you look at singers who have limits like Feist or CatPower, who have a very niche audience, you'll know that they take their styles to the limit. Calling Philip middling would be a compliment but he doesn't reach that height. I would go as far as to say that he's a talented guitarist (an area I know little about) but as a singer, he has no chops. He barely has the intention of hitting the notes but the biggest fail for me is that he has absolutely no melody. Every performance he has on this stage (especially group performances) he has no power of the melody of the song unlike, lets say Shakira. A master of melody and phrasing. Listen to one Shakira song like, "Tu" "Objection" "Si Te Vas" or even "Whenever Wherever" and you'll see that she molds the and follows the song. Philip on the other hand is a performer who sings for the sake of singing and isn't that talented in that aspect of performance. 

 

His greatest strength is that he's trying to make his own style but his style is not working nor can you convince me that he is of the same style that Dave Mathews is. Philip needs singing lessons and that's all I can say about him objectively.

I didn't even know the DM song and tbh not a huge DM fan though i am a Phillip fan. i thought the words were totally clear... Problem was it was too short. I would have loved to hear more, but I'll just buy the iTunes version. So many people don't seem to get Phil at all. Oh well, that's just the way it is. Opinions are subjective. To me, almost everyone else on there is as generic as can be. I compared it to DM's version just now and shock of shocks, I like Phil's version better and the way he sang it. To each his own. DM is fine but Phil is not DM nor trying to be. He has a similar way of getting into the music but everyone who does isn't DM or I too would be a DM imitator for feeling the music.

 

I also like his voice and his manner and his speaking voice is akin to his singing voice as well so not like he's trying to sound like anyone. He is himself. Love Phil - the only thing keeping this season remotely interesting for me and if he were to leave, no reason at all for me to watch. He is an oasis of clarity in a show of mainstream mediocrity.

 

And i don't go by his looks though they aren't bad at all ;). I love just listening to his music as much as watching and the faces don't even bother me at all.

 

Phil makes me feel the words he's singing unlike the others who seem disconnected.

 @rezzzy I like skylar.... she have been steady ......  the so so contestants are Elise, Jessica and Joshua.... the artistically unique are Elise and PP but the person whos in the wrong circle is Hollie...

@takakupo My point was idol needs alot more then the singers that can sing the glory notes, how many of those have actually won? Carrie didn't have an over powering voice either. He's not a pop singer and shouldn't try to be. That's why alot of people like him because he's not going to change no matter how hard they try. They tell him don't wear gray shirts he wears them every week. I'm sure they'd tell him not to sing Dave cause he sounds like him, he did anyways

@Lilface2 Actually, I DO get it: that he's one overrated singer. Think Gokey with the guitar. And yeah, I have no patience for piss-poor performances back-to-back. Sorry but that's how it is. I suggest next time to judge objectively.

 @jpad319I guess Nicole's point was taken.  People like you don't get it.  :( ah too bad, so sad!

 @nicole_jp Sure, he makes me feel something, alright: Pure frustration and all kinds of WTF.

 @kantaru Agree! Hollie is good for stage drama while singing a cartoon soundtrack not a singing competition like this... shes not a versatile singer.
