Philip Phillips sang Bob Seger’s “We’ve Got Tonight” on the Top 3 performance episode of American Idol 11. Heading into the night, Philip was the odds-on favorite. After closing the show with this performance, he is probably still the favorite to win. You can listen to the iTunes studio version of Phillip’s “We’ve Got Tonight” by playing the YouTube video posted below.
Philip tackles this song in a more delicate way than he does most of his other performances. I dare say the delicateness of this performance is not something Joshua or Jessica could have done. So he set himself apart as different than the others while also showing a different side of his skill set. We all know deep down Phillip has made this far for being cool and having a popular style. But he has a much stronger argument that he deserves to be in the finale and win after this performance of “We’ve Got Tonight.”
The video for the iTunes studio version just went up on YouTube. So there isn’t much to say in terms or user ratings and statistics. At this early stage, though, it has 15 Likes and 0 Dislikes.
