Idol is disgusting with the way they sabotoged jessica....but phillips will be another Kris Allen ...
The question is will Jessica drop the coronation song during tour after a few shows like Kris did with "No Boundaries"? lols I do feel kind of bad for her that she got that song.
Not sure what they are going to do with Jessica. Technically she is great but she does nothing for me. I really enjoy P2.
I would have said Jessica a few weeks ago, but Phillip's cover of Volcano made me a fan. And his winner song last night is sure to be a hit. Jessica is a better vocalist, but P2 is more of an artist. With bands like Mumford and Son making it big recently, Phillip easily fits into that same genre that has become more mainstream lately. Maybe Jimmy and the producers were really pimping him by giving him that winners song last night (much catchier than J's). But, I think he will be the bigger star, regardless of who wins. Though, for the record, Jessica is an amazing powerhouse diva, and, if she can get good songs, she has huge potential as well.
I know P2 is going to win. It's pretty obvious in Dial Idol and the audience reaction last night. Who votes for this kid? I'm pretty sure 95% of his fans consist of teenyboppers who think he's hot whatsoever. Seriously make the voting 1 per person, JS will win by a long shot. His fans probably voted like 10,000 each if that's even possible. Nothing can stop those tweens from voting like crazy. So glad this season is gonna be over.
Can't wait for the result tomorrow! :) 2 hour finale! :) In reality the announcement will just last for a minute or 2. :)
Philips 3rd song is not his own version ...its like cheating having to heard the song first and sing it as the original singer does....unlike Jessicas song its her own rendition and own arrangement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSSDxF53rZM
After the voting in West Coast. Dial Idol gives Phillip 14.226 versus Jessica 12.849. That's a 1.377 difference. Hawaii please vote vote vote for Jessica. ;))
D.I is now down to 1.7 ! Hawaii and the West Coast coming through for us! O.M.G ! B.T.W, In case you are wondering why I'm monitoring Dial Idol so closely, it's simple : Dial Idol has never predicted a final wrong before! They have got many predictions wrong in prior rounds! But when it comes to the Final, they are always spot on! 100% Success rate
@dnm1 I keep reading this....and I find it funny. I like Phillip from the stand point of being a great independent artist. I think Jessica is a great technical singer, but she just imitates Whitney and Beyonce. And I'm older than your parents...
@bloodymondei Why is that cheating? Jessica does that to just about anything she sings. And her coronation song wasn't her creation either.
@bloodymondei And if you heard the judges last night regarding this song they said putting his own spin to it...ummm no it sounds like this one!
@bloodymondei It's NOT cheating, lols. The song was pitched to Jimmy Iovine and it was approved. That is one of the original songwriters of the song that is singing it. Lots of songwriters write songs for other artist. That is what songwriters do, lols. You guys are silly. Songwriters can also perform their songs whenever they want. Example: Adam Lambert's hit "What Do You Want From Me" written by Pink and has been performed by Pink. PP got lucky and got the better single, don't be jealous. Jess will probably win anyway
@bloodymondei Jessica didn't writer her song either. "Change Nothing" was written by Joleen Belle & Harry Sommerdahl
@bloodymondei Great find! It's a great song. I love it! But yeah.. P2 didn't sound so original now.
The judges basically has been pimping PP till the very end.
I don't like how Jessica just sitting entirely on her last performance. Who in the hell told her to do that? No body.. I mean nobody should be sitting ENTIRELY during their winning song performance. It won't create any 'moment'
Not to mention adding some marching band to P2 performance and told JLO to say how original P2's song/performance is??
Geez.. I love both P2 and Jessica but their last performances just show how biased to show toward certain finalist.
@bloodymondei I don't think Jessica had anything to do with the arrangement, or the writing of her song either. Besides, her song was terrible.
@Lombe You can no longer go by that...there is now online voting which isn't taken into account or texting. dialidol is just a fraction of the votes coming in.
@Lombe But previous seasons only rely on phone call voting and text votes. now we have online voting, which can definitely alter Dial Idol's prediction.
@DanCooper @dnm1 She's 16. Everybody starts at mimicking icons. But even at 16 she has her own style and she tries to put it in. Does whitney and beyonce growl? Nor do they have the same range. P2 on the other hand, with his maturity and him being a musician and songwriter, should and must be able to do his own versions of the songs he picks. For a guy his age to act as if he hasn't been around music to learn to make it his own is just darn foolish. Now, do you think P2 was as great as Jess when he was 16? Gorgeous and a slender prick maybe, but not that vocally good. That is precisely the reason why people should stop diminishing Jess just because P2 gave an original-sounding song, because if everything else were equal and they're at the same age, Jess will sweep P2 down the drain that easily.
@DanCooper From David Foster the great producer "anyone who can mimic another artist is considered a GREAT SINGER" He is right it's not easy to do when you are succeeding imitating the greats! Whitney, Celine, Mariah are very hard to imitate. Jessica can sing like them but does not sound like them. She has her own sound. Her delivery and vibrato are very different from the artists you have mentioned. She has plenty of years to come into her own she is only 16. I don't think there are any 16 year olds that can sing like her aside from Charice who was belting out Whitney and Celine at a younger age than Jessica. There are however many artists like Philip alot of them winning American Idol and then dropped from the label due to low record sales. So it will be interesting in the long run to see how this all plays out.
The stupid judges know he didn't write it. Anyway AGAIN it was written by the songwriters who has to do a demo version of this to be sent to labels to be pitched to. It was already arranged and sung that way on the demo and by the songwriters. It was meant to be sung this way. So all Jimmy had to do was let PP listen to it and tweak it a little and bam you got a single. LOTS of artist do this. And if PP releases this to radio it will be his song.
@jlscott13 No they never write their own coronation song however this particular song is not being sung anywhere on this planet besides her.
@Ross88 True! Though last year, both text votes and FB votes were available and it still got it's Scotty McCreery prediction right
LOLs..."Gorgeous and a slender prick maybe", haha!!!! P2 hasn't been singing that long, he is only 21, he isn't that old. Jessica has been singing and doing competitions since she came out of the womb. haha j/ It's all good. She is talented and she will be successful. Are you happy now? Hollie is dang good too for being so young and only singing for 3 years. So who should I pick in the pool to win?
@dancer61958 @DanCooper So being a mimic artist is a good thing ? I can't stand David Foster. Jessica is and exceptional vocalist and she will find her style as she gets older. As much as we lump all the WGWG together they are all very different in the genre of music they sing . David Cook certainly does not sing like Scotty. lols
@dancer61958 @bloodymondei Another thing songs can be recycled and reused and released at anytime if given approval. Look at Lauren's single last season , it was previously recorded on Kristy Lee Cook's album. lols......Anyway it's all good, I hope they continue to package PP because it works. I loved his second performance too. Give him a break he is singing with kidney stones. haha :) Jessica will win tonight and you guys can have her god awful coronation song.
