Which of the final four do you want to see win the American Idol crown?
The show is supposed to be about 'performing' so the criteria should be based on who gives the most complete performances each week. Joshua is certainly good at performing, but each week there is a 'scream' whether it belongs there or not. Jessica's youth shows up each week ... she can sign better than all of them, but her performances are always just immature. If she gets bad advice on songs she has to push back. Phillip is rogue and very entertaining, but he most definitely does not have the singing chops that all of the other three have. He marches to his own beat and that independence will carry him. Hollie is the opposite, she has a terrific voice, but little charisma and even less performing ability. This week was her first week as an 'entertainer'. Hollie goes next, then Joshua. Final two will be Jessica and Phillip.
I think that you guys are being much too hard on Jessica the last two to three weeks, including the judges. Not to mention, Jimmy the mentor, has admitted, that he did not give her good advice concering the "Proud Mary" and "Try a Little Tenderness" songs, in which she still performed well. My vote goes to Jessica. Then Joshua because from day one of the competition they both give consistance and solid performances.
"River Deep Mountain High" was the most exciting performance last week, and with "Bleeding Love" Hollie proved that she has the talent to win. I'm voting 100% for Hollie! She has loads of personality too just watch her interviews.
Phillip is the only original artist. He tries new things with his songs all the time and isn't predictable or shouty and screaming like the others. It would be pure hell to listen to Joshua's screaming for more than one song. The judges are doing him a diservice by their ridiculous standing ovations and over the top praise. He looks as embarassed as the audiences feel!
America please let jessica be in the competition till the finale... let her win coz she has the complete package if given a chance there is no need to polish her voice quality.... her voice is superior compared to the other AI finalists.... to all filipino-american and filipino-mexican please Jessica till the finale.... let her be the winner for this season
Since I have been watching the show I have noticed that the judges do seem to side with certain contes=tants. To me it is not just about having a good voice but also the style and way they interpret the song.Each of the contestants have their own way of doing the songs but as far as individual styles go I am going to have to sway toward Hollie and Phillip. It's ashamed that Skylar was kicked off because as far as being a consumate performer she definitely to me was a triple threat. She has the voice,the songwriting and the instrumental capabilities.Thankfully she went out with a bang! Awesome!
I think Jessica is the best. Her voice is versatile. She doesn't have to scream or strain to reach the high notes.The quality of her singing voice is awesome,very pleasant to listen to.She is so gifted.
Why do we have to put up with the judges at all?? Just let us vote. The only judge that appears to be genuine and serious is Steven. I agree with the others......The OBVIOUS standing ovations for Joshua are getting very old. Joshua must be embarrassed by the obvious. Is it that we are due for a talent of color? The judges need a swift kick. It is obvious that they think we are all stupid. Next season keep the judges separated so that they vote independantly. It would be great if they couldn't communicate with each other throughout the season. BETTER YET.......WE DON'T NEED THEM, ONLY THE TALENT!!
@cheryl ellen- I agree with you. Randy truly encourages the other 2 judges to give a standing ovation to joshua every week. Did u see how they praise hollie?and i couldnt fathom how in this world can jlo say joshua is the best singer inshe has heard in 50 years. . .oh. . .pleeeeaaassssseeee! dont give us that crap! we have EARS to hear and EYES to see.
i agree with larry.For me, JESSICA should be the idol for season 11. She's got the in born talent and given the right handling,packaging,and when she learns the ropes,surely she'll be somebody that people from accross the world will appreciate and look forward to unfold. Jessica is not only promising she is one of a kind.
