Movin’ Out by Billy Joel
Only one note was killed in this performance. It was the only note sang.
At what point did Phillip decide this was a finale worthy song? So many others he could have chosen to showcase himself. That being said…there’s Phillip. I think what I like most about Phillip is that he has charm while he performs. Another OK song.
Letter Grade – S for Sigh. When are these two gonna COMPETE?
The judges call the round:
Steven says – Jessica took it again (still high from last week?)
Randy says – Dead heat round 2 (dead being the operative word)
Jennifer says – Phillip took round 2 (contact high from sitting by Steven?)
And finally we get to hear the songs that the Idols chose that could be their winner’s single.
Change Nothing by her
Why is she singing a grown up love song as her “winner song” when it was established weeks ago that she needs to sing something more her age. Also interesting that now that she doesn’t have another vocalist to “lead” her vocals are not only over sung but strained. Hmm. Could I have been right about needing vocals lessons?
Letter Grade – N for Not gonna listen to this on the radio
Randy says – Did not love it. No flavour. Just OK. (YAY! Me too)
Jennifer says – Sang song really well but it was a pop ballad. Not my choice for your first single. (Wow. It really blew for the nations cheerleader to not love it)
Steven says – I know how good you can sing, I just don’t think that was the song for you. (I don’t think that was the song for anyone)
Home by him
Eek. Doesn’t even stand out in a crowd onstage.
Wow. This song was a great one for Phillip. Very true to who he is as an artist and who he is as a personality. He sang it well and kept it together for the final song. Judges even gave him an O.
Letter Grade – N for Now it’s a competition
Randy says – Loved song. Loved you. Loved production. Loved everything. Perfect. Brilliant. Genius. (OK that’s a bit much, it was good but sheesh)
Jennifer says – Couldn’t think of any other artist that that song sounded like. It was truly Phillip Phillips. (good thing it was Phillip Phillips singing then huh?)
Randy says – You have such a vulnerability and style you have made the world your home. I think you were perfect tonight and you are the man. (Perfect no. The man yes)
Then, for no apparent reason, my dirty little fantasy shows up to sing. Hi Scotty! I would listen to whatever you are singing but you are busy doing other things in my head right now.
Shhh. He’s thinking about me too.
So that was that. It’s all over but the voting. You all obviously know who I hope wins but do you agree? What did you think of this season?
Love and Poolboys,
