American Idol Finale 2012

I knew my votes would end up being really important. My Phillip is still around. At this point though, I don't even know if winning would be a good thing for him.

Anywho, tonight will hopefully be good. I can't say it will be exciting because I just don't see that happening.

What will Phillip and Jessica sing for us? 3 songs each, right? The original song they will be forced to sing will suck ass, so I can't hold that against either of them. I think Jessica is going to go with a big vocal - Whitney or Mariah or some such nonsense.

I hope Phillip chooses one of his latter songs with the amazing vocals such as “Volcano” by Damien Rice. I also liked his version of "Beggin" and "You Got It Bad". I just hope he feels good enough to give us a good performance one last time.

Do the producers get to pick a song? Ugh, not looking forward to that at all.

I'll be burning up those phone lines after the show tonight. Gotta make my votes count.

I also need to point out that Phillip is among my top picks from the beginning. And he's my favorite along with Colton Dixon who left way too early.

American Idol Top 4

I can't believe we are down to the Top 4 already. Needless to say, I was quite upset when Colton left. I only cried a LOT little. My daughter only made fun of me a little LOT. But I'm okay now. < sniff > Doing better every day.

And loving Phillip more than ever. Last week wasn't so good performance wise. I was just thankful that my million few votes counted (or did they?) and he was safe.

But this week? Oh holy hell I loved his second song, Volcano. That was Phillip's BEST performance so far. Did you see it? Do you want to see it again? Here it is in all it's glorious hotness.....

I really liked the whole setup they had going on with just Phillip and his guitar and the cello and the singer... just perfect! Even better than the original version.

Again this week we had some funky duets. With 2 guys and 2 girls left you would think they could manage 2 boy/girl duets. But no, let's make this as weird as possible and pair up the boys...... last week it was just so so very wrong. But this week I enjoyed Phillip and Joshua singing This Love. They sounded pretty good, and it was very funny and slightly entertaining.

But the funniest moment of the night was Phillip and Joshua on the 'swings' after Hollie and Jessica performed. Hilarious!

Cut to Julian Lennon in the house!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved Julian Lennon back in the day..... Well, you know, a long long time ago when he had records out and songs on the radio and my best friend and I went to see him in concert. Cuz you know that what the closest I was ever going to get to seeing The Beatles, so yeah.
