The American Idol 11 finale results show took place on Wednesday, May 24, 2012. Robin Gibb, one of the founding members of the Bee Gees, died of cancer just a few days before the live finale.
Idol put together a tribute of some of Robin Gibbs’ songs and had the top 12 boys perform the tribute. Philip Phillips did not participate because he was one of the finalists. The boys who took part in the Robin Gibb tribute included Joshua Ledet, Colton Dixon, DeAndre Brackensick, Heejun Han, and Jeremy Rosado. Jermaine Jones was not invited to the finale because he was disqualified.
You can view the YouTube video of the Robin Gibb tribute below. Less than one day after it was uploaded, the video has statistics of about 4000 visitors and user ratings of 163 Likes to 3 Dislikes. I hope those 3 Dislikes were misclicks. I don’t know why someone would criticize a tribute. It’s not even about the singing.
Personally, I thought Josh did great here. And Colton and Jeremy did good, too. The others were just kind of there.
