The American Idol crew sent, 19 yr. old, Joshua back to his home town, Westlake, LA. He got off the plane to find lots of people waiting there to see him including his mother and niece. He wanted to his to ride in the parade with him because he has missed her so much while he was gone. He also went to his high school and church. Joshua performed for his fans while he was home.
Joshua’s song choice for himself was, “Imagine,” by John Lennon. He sang it with heart. For me it was good but not spectacular. Steven Tyler commented that it was another Thank you God moment. Again, if you would like to vote for Joshua you should call 1-866-436-5701, 1-866-436-5704, or 1-866-436-5707.
Idol also sent 16 yr. old, Jessica home in a private helicopter. She visited her hometown of San Diego, CA. Before Idol she was home schooled and didn’t know a lot of people. Jessica went to an amphitheater where there were so many people waiting to see her. The mayor of the city declared that day for Jessica. She also rode in a parade. She was also able to sing a song to her father who had been away in the military.
Jessica choice was “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing, “by Aerosmith. Steven Tyler said “You took a great song and made it better.” That was an unbelievable, rare compliment especially from Steven Tyler because that was one of his songs that she just performed. Again, if you would like to vote for Jessica call, 1-866-436-5702 or 1-866-436-5705 or 1-866-436-5708.
Phillip also went home this past week. He flew home to Leesburg, GA. He also got off the plane to find many fans cheering him on. The following day he rode up to his father’s pawn shop to see more fans. He rode in the limo with his father to go home and see his mother and sister’s. His mother said, “This is my Mother’s Day!” He sang for his fans while he was home.
Phiilip Phillips performed, “Disease,” by Matchbox Twenty. It was like being at a Phillip Phillips concert. None of the judges liked it that much. The audience booed when the judges were saying that though. It is America that votes so tomorrow night we will see if America loved it. If you would like to vote for Phillip you should call 1-866-436-5703 or 1-866-436-5706 or 1-866-436-5709.
“No More Drama,” by Mary J. Blige was the next song performed by Joshua. Personally, I felt like he was yelling it instead of singing it. I feel like America will vote for him because of what the judges are saying but I hope not because I think that Jessica Sanchez is the real winner tonight and hopefully the winner of American Idol 2012. That was the last song for Joshua. If you would like to vote for him call 1-866-436-5701 or 1-866-436-5704 or 1-866-436-5707.
Jimmy Iovine chose “I’ll be here,” by Michael Jackson. Jessica killed it. It was awesome. She really sounded like Michael Jackson. I really do think she will be our next American Idol. If you would like to vote for Jessica you should dial 1-866-436-5702 or 1-866-436-5705 or 1-866-436-5708.
Jimmy picked out “We’ve got Tonight,” by Bob Seger. It was different for Phillip because he isn’t used to sing a slow song. It was definitely not the Rock he is used to but I am sure the girls loved it. He is a good looking boy and you could tell he was sincere. The judges did a standing ovation. Randy said,”It was your best performance ever.” Jennifer said, There was a million girls out there who wish you were singing that to them. Steven Tyler said, “You have all that passion inside of you.” If you want to vote for Phillip call 1-866-436-5703 or 1-866-436-5706 or 1-866-436-5709.
Don’t forget next week’s finale is a day earlier on Tuesday evening. Please tune in tomorrow night to see who will be the last two Idols standing in the finale.
