    Jessica is a fine number 2. While her music and sound is too old timey for radio hits, I can see her on Broadway bursting out with the big song or part of a Vegas act where singers with big showy voices are popular. Like she said during the show, all she knows is how to do is sing.. She will have a long career making a living off that voice. I don't see her working the burger king drive-thru anytime soon - no offense to those of you that work the drive-thrus.

    Phil won because he is the Idol type - cute white guy that plays guitar - so by default got most of the tween and middle age housewife votes. (I am keenly tuned into the Idol voting block as I have a tween girl and many tween nieces and while my wife won't admit it she is in the middle aged housewife demo).

    It also doesn't hurt that his sound can be catchy and is something that might get occasional radio play.

    How do they get their corny songs? If the show gives them to them Jessica got the short end of the stick. I thought Phil's song was more Mumford & Sons than Paul Simon.

    I immediately though Paul Simon when P2 started his second song and was just about to say something when my wife said "That sounds like something from Simon and Garfunkel", especially when the harmonies kicked in! I get the Mumford and Sons reference too, but it all added up to total P2 awesomeness!

    I also liked the cheesy marching band a la Tusk!



    If he doesn't win, I'll be a little surprised, but I'll be first in line for his album and I KNOW he'll be the bigger star.

    Phil got his song from songwriter Drew Pearson which was originally done by Greg Holden http://youtu.be/0xaUtd01Fyk

    (don't watch if you liked P2s version)

    I'm hoping for a Philip Philips win. Jessica is a great singer, but I was never moved by her.

    i was pretty much on fast forward mode - seeing what the songs were and then moving on to the next.

    i did get slightly excited when i thought that they would have to do the same original song - the idea cracked me up given how different they are.

    but - i will say Phil's final song did it for me - even in FF mode i stopped and watched the whole thing and was actually moved by it.

    Dial Idol's results have really tightened up over night. Should be interesting!

    My feeling exactly. She certainly has the pipes but she does nothing for me when she sings. I can't recall a single performance of hers but Philips are memorable, even the not so good ones.

    He should win.

    It's funny but this year I have not paid as close attention to Idol as in the past but I feel this is the best crop of singers they have had.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again.

    WHATEVER tonight's result, P2 wins!

    Unless he sang it completely differently than he did last time I think I need to side with Mr. Soze.

    You noticed it sounded like Mumford & Sons...me and one of the people I was watching the show with thought it sounded like Mumford & Sons...Randy made a comment that it had a Mumford & Sons sound to it. So, then why did J.Lo. follow up Randy's comments by saying "it sounds like nothing currently on the radio."? What song was she hearing?

    I don't get the hype about Phillip, as many others don't either. I understand he is "different" and more of an artist. I just think his singing voice is more annoying than good. Jessica is a better singer...but obviously that's not what it takes to win because Joshua was a better singer than both of these two.

    I dont think I've ever been this disinterested in a finale. I recorded the show but still haven't watched it.

    Heck, I'm sitting here making this post instead of turning on my DVR.

    I feel sorry for the winner who has to release one of those crappy Idol singles.

    I hope someone starts a real thread for tonight's show. I won't be posting in mister paranoia's ranting thread. ;)
