Philip Phillips is singing three songs for the American Idol 11 Top 3. Below, I will load up the YouTube video of the song that he personally chose as soon as Idol’s official YouTube account makes it available.
Philip is also performing one song chosen by Jimmy Iovine and one by the judges. You can find all of these YouTube videos by going to the “american idol youtube” or “philip phillips youtube” tags under this article.
According to betting odds online, Philip is entering the Top 3 as the favorite. He does have some health issues (kidney stones) that could affect his performances. By now, though, I suspect the voters have already decided that he is the favorite. There is certainly an argument to be made that both Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez are better singers. But Philip has soul and artistry, and that should not be discounted, either.
I will upload the video for the song that Phillip personally chose to sing as soon as it is available from the American Idol official YouTube account. If things go as normal, they should be uploading the videos early on Thursday.
Until that time, I have posted the video for Philip’s Top 4 performance of Damien Rice’s “Volcano.” He got very high marks for this song even from people who don’t even like Philip that much.
Philip selected Matchbox 20′s “Disease” as his personal song choice. This was his second performance of the night and frankly not as good as the first one. Phillip is closing the show with his 3rd song and needs a strong one to finish out the Top 3.
