American Idol finale: JESSICA SANCHEZ's I Have Nothing, The Prayer & Change Nothing finale performance videos! Outstanding!
It is finale week, the biggest event of this season and 7000 die hard fans are in the audience tonight. The final two, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips appear on stage (what the heck does Jessica have in her right hand? half of her dress?) and after a brief hello, they leave. Phillip won the coin toss last week, so Jessica performs first.
ROUND 1: Jessica Sanchez singing ‘I Have Nothing’ by WhitneyHouston and Phillip Phillips singing Stand By Me by Ben E. King
Judges Comments: Jennifer said, “this is a tough one because it is a battle of the opposites. At the end of the day America has a tough job.” Randy said, “the winner of round one is Jessica.” Steven didn’t have a chance to say anything.
JESSICA SANCHEZ : Change Nothing
JESSICA SANCHEZ : The Prayer
ROUND 2: Jessica Sanchez performs “The Prayer” by Celine Dion and Phillip Phillips “Movin’ Out” by Billy Joel
Judges Comments: Steven said, “when it comes to Phillip you always don’t have to be a good egg, but Jessica took this round again”. Randy said, “I think that round was a dead heat, even.” Jennifer said, “I have to go with Phillip on this round, he was better.”
ROUND 3: Jessica and Philips’ Singles
Jessica Sanchez performs “Change Nothing”
Judges Comments: Randy said, “I did not love the song, but you made something more out of the song, you have that Beyonce swag. You brought the song to life, but it was just ok.” Jennifer said, “you sang it well, I did not think your first single was going to be pop, but you will make many records and you need to say this is not me.” Steven said, “I know how good you can sing, but it was not the proper song for you.”
PHILLIP PHILIPS : Home
PHILLIP PHILIPS : Movin' Out
PHILLIP PHILIPS : Stand By Me
Phillip Phillips performs “Home”.
Judges Comments: Randy said, “ I love the song, I love you, everything about that was perfect, that was your best performance of the night, a true artist, I love it, brilliant genius.” Jennifer said, “it was so different, it was just Phillip and nothing on the radio sounds like that.” Steven said, “by virtue of your sound and style, you were perfect tonight, you are the man.
