It all ends tonight, folks! The American Idol season 11 finale is only a few short hours away on the East Coast, and if you missed the awesome performances, check out our live blogging from last night for all the juicy details about what took place. We also have video footage of the first performances of the finale from both Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. After watching them both, you will probably agree that Jessica Sanchez won round one – hands down!
I know, I know, with the amount of tween and teen girls bogging down the American Idol phone lines last night, it’s probably safe to assume that Phillip Phillips will be crowned the winner tonight, but a girl can hope, right? We get it that Phillip is a hot, young, guy with a great voice, but Jessica is just as talented, and for the first time in many years, it would be damn nice to see a female win.
Phillip Phillips may have won the “winner” song round of the competition last night, but when Jessica came out belting I Have Nothing by the late Whitney Houston, she sealed the deal on that round.
Check out both of the performances below, and tell us what you think of them!
