Philip Phillips has just made the finale of American Idol 11. He will be going against Jessica Sanchez. Joshua Ledet finished in 3rd place.
Philip will be singing three songs. It may be a while before we find out which songs Philip is singing. Bookmark this page and come back later to see what Philip is singing for the finale. The performance episode next week is on Tuesday, NOT the normal Wednesday time frame. It starts at 8 p.m. Eastern and lasts one hour.
I will also post any other Philip news as it becomes available. Philip has had kidney problems all season. Hopefully, he can hold it together 5 more days and give his best in the finale for 3 more songs.
Updates: Idol has released the them for the Season 11 finale. Philip will sing a song chosen by producer Simon Fuller, a song that will be his winner’s single if he does win, and his personal favorite among the songs he has already performed on the show.
Here are the songs that Philip sang in the finale:
1. Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” – Simon Fuller’s pick
2. Billy Joel’s “Movin Out” – personal pick (a strange choice, indeed)
3. “Home” – winner’s single (most people seem to think this was a great pick even if they don’t particularly like Philip)
