‘American Idol’ Season 11 Winner: Who Should Take the Title? – Readers Poll
Who is going to be crowned the ‘American Idol‘ winner of Season 11? We can’t know for sure until the ‘American Idol’ finale on May 24, but there are only three contestants left in the running.
Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet all have their own unique vocal style, and all three fall into different genres on the music spectrum, so it’s definitely going to be a tough decision for voters. We want to know: Who are you rooting for to be named this year’s ‘American Idol’?
Phillip Phillips is the rocker of the bunch, with his gravelly voice and guitar-in-hand performances. Over the course of his ‘American Idol’ run thus far, the handsome 21-year-old has wowed us with moving renditions of rock classics like Billy Joel’s ‘Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)‘ and newer folky tunes like Damien Rice’s ‘Volcano.’
Meanwhile, Jessica Sanchez may only be 16, but she’s been the bona fide diva of the bunch from the start. The pint-sized songstress can belt out everything from Etta James’ ‘Steal Away‘ to Beyonce‘s ‘Sweet Dreams,’ and she has proven that she deserves to be on this show, even after almost being sent home (the judges luckily saved her, much to the relief of her already dedicated fan base).
Finally, Joshua Ledet, 20, is the soul man of the ‘American Idol’ Top 3, and his gospel-twinged, larger-than-life voice has blown us away week after week. His covers of James Brown’s ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World‘ and Bruno Mars‘ ‘Runaway Baby‘ were outstanding and exciting, but he can also bring the mood back down with performances of songs like Josh Groban’s ‘You Raise Me Up.’
So, PopCrush readers and ‘American Idol’ fanatics, who do you think deserves to be crowned the winner of Season 11? Vote for either Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez or Joshua Ledet below, and be sure to tune in to the season finale of ‘American Idol’ on May 24 at 8PM EST.
