Phillip Phillips, in a way, conceded to his rival Jessica Sanchez by saying that he can’t out-sing the 16-year-old Filipino-Mexican.
“I definitely can’t out-sing Jessica,” he said, admitting that she’s the better singer.
“Her voice is probably her best quality,” he added.
The judges, however, gave Phillip Phillips the best compliment of the night. Their standing ovation on Phillip’s last performance said clearly who they want to win this season.
Is Phillip just making Jessica feel better because he was given the better song and that he’s 90% sure that he will be declared the winner based from what the judges said?
Phillip has a strong fan base of teenage girls voting for him week after week. Not to mention the pattern since season 7 that the “White Guy With Guitar” always end up as winner of the reality singing competition.
The odds seem to favor another guy this year.
What do you think?
