American Idol: Joshua Ledet Too Fey, Jessica Sanchez Too Young, Phillip Phillips Winner

By Robert Paul Reyes

Each American Idol hopeful sang three songs tonight: One chosen by the judges, another one by Jimmy Lovine, and the third by the contestants themselves.

At this point in the competition it really doesn`t matter if each contestant performed one song or a dozen, we are already intimately familiar with the talent, personality and style of the young singers.


Here are my impressions of the three survivors:

Joshua Ledet: Showman, gospel, church, heart and soul, fey, old school, emotion, judges favorite.

Jessica Sanchez: Too young, too skinny, too timid, vocal chops, derivative, robots favorite.

Phillip Phillips: Teenybopper appeal, guitar man, handsome, white, safe, tweens favorite.

Judges and robots don`t vote, teenyboppers do -- over and over again.

Next one to get the boot: Jessica Sanchez

Your next American Idol: Phillip Phillips
