The Idol Finale is here! Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips’ fans are all fired up for the big night and are ready to vote for who they believe should be the next American Idol. With Jessica Sanchez’s booming voice and Phillip Phillips’ original, crazy renditions, these two have been early favorites of the 2012 season. Phillips has never sunk to the bottom three and Jessica Sanchez has been a judges’ favorite since her first audition. They both have had several solid performances, which have brought them into the spotlight.
This particular finale will be one of the toughest to predict in Idol history. Both singers are of similar skill levels and have had consistently strong performances throughout the entire season. When Jessica sings, the audience is constantly blown away by her booming voice, similar to both Celine Dion and the late Whitney Houston.
However, I think Phillip will reign supreme. He brings out one valuable attribute that Jessica does not — he makes each song his own work of art. He can take any song from any genre and mold it into his own rock-and-roll vibe, which is incredible. Every performance feels like a concert and fans are left captivated by both his likeable quirks and raw talent.
Who do you think will be the next American Idol?
