And Then There are Two - American Idol Finalists

The time has come!
Tuesday night (US time) will see the last two finalists perform in the bid for the Winner of the American Idol Season 11. The two finalists are 16-year-old with a big voice, Jessica Sanchez, and 21-year-old singer-songwriter Phillip Phillips, the latter whom Jimmy Iovine, the show's mentor said, "He has a certain thing that some of the other (recent Idol winners) didn't have. I don't know how he was missed in the industry because he has such charisma and such a great character."

And on Wednesday (again US time, 8am Malaysia time Thursday) watch a 2-hour Finale of the crowning of the new American Idol Season 11 - all on StarWorld, Ch 11 on Astro.

If Sanchez wins, she will be youngest Idol champion and the Fox TV contest's first female winner since Jordin Sparks in 2007. The home-schooled teen was saved from elimination by the show's judges last month after coming bottom in the public vote.

Hear Jessica Sanchez perform "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith at the Top 3 performance show.

Phillip Phillips performs "We've Got Tonight" by Bob Seger at the Top 3 performance show.

Joshua Ledet performs "No More Drama" by Mary J. Blige at the Top 3 performance show. Joshua was voted out.

  1. well you know i've not been following the AI.. so this girl looks so Filipino, i go google her up and yeah, her mum is a Filipino, haha..

    by just watching the two videos you posted.. i think Philips stands a better chance cos Sanchez just is so, err, common and, doesn't stands out.. my humble opinion..

  2. I wish Jessica Sanchez can win. She's really good! And I would like an Asian to win AI for once! : )

  3. SK, the contestant you picked won.

    Foong, a change would be good but then again, it's the people's choice.
