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.
