Who will win 'American Idol' this season? It's down to the wire now, with only Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez left in the competition for Season 11. The youngsters -- Phillips will turn 22 on Sept. 20 while Sanchez won't even be 17 until August 2012 -- have very differing styles when it comes to vocal performances, making America's decision that much more difficult. So, will rockin' guitarist Phillip Phillips win the title of 'American Idol' this year, or will pint-sized diva Jessica Sanchez be crowned the victor of Season 11?
On tonight's (May 22) pentultimate episode of Season 11 of 'American Idol,' Phillip Phillips won the coin toss, so he chose to perform after the lovely diva Jessica Sanchez. Phillips had to perform three songs: one selected by producer Simon Fuller, a repeat of a song from earlier in the season and his own single.
Phillip Phillips got great news on last night's (May 17) 'American Idol.' He is a finalist, going up against Jessica Sanchez next week for the title from Season 11. However, the artsy and uber talented singer / guitarist, beloved by the ladies, is also faced with some bad news, too. His doctor is urging him to get emergency surgery. But Phillips is bravely (and riskily) putting it off until after the finale.
Round three of 'American Idol' tonight (May 16) was definitely the redemption round for Phillip Phillips. Mentor Jimmy Iovine chose Bob Seger’s 'We’ve Got Tonight' as way of appeasing Phillips' female and male fans, and as a way of getting him to sing a melody that shouldn’t be messed with. It turns out, Iovine made a great choice.
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'?
