American Idol was down to only two contestants on tonight’s finale. Well, who will win American Idol? Josh! Oh wait that’s right America got it wrong and voted him off. So it actually comes down to Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips. Boy vs. girl. West Coast vs. East Coast. Great singer vs. Amazing singer.
In the end, the most consistent singer throughout the show has definitely been Jessica. However, teen girls tend to vote more, so Phil just may have a shot of going all the way. It would be surprising, but crazier things have happened in the past. Clay Aiken was the favorite to win, and was beaten out by Reuben Studdard. So anything is possible.
This will be a showdown to remember, but I am still in shock over the loss of Josh. If it were up to me, 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez would take the crown as the new American Idol. But was it just me, or did it seem like the producer’s set her up to fail tonight? Seems like the judges were pushing Phillip hard and he seemed to have the better songs. This is probably why there are so many rumors of Idol being rigged. I’m just saying…
On another note, rumor has it the Jennifer Lopez is leaving Idol. She is no doubt the best judge on the show so let’s hope she stays. It would be a huge loss and they would really need a truly incredible replacement or their ratings would further tumble. Does her possible exit have something to do with her taking the top spot in Forbes? She went from number 50 on the list to the most powerful celebrity this year. Now that’s juice!
And just imagine…she used to just be a “Fly Girl”!
