American Idol 2012 Finale Recap: Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez (VIDEOS)

UPDATE: Click here for our American Idol 2012 Live Recap: The Final Two Performances! (VIDEOS)

The American Idol 2012 top 2 will hit the stage Tuesday for their last chance to impress the voters. After Wednesday’s American Idol 2012 results show, we could end up with our fifth male American Idol winner in a row, or the first female winner in five seasons. All of it may just come down to who gives the best performances tonight, and who fails to deliver that last ‘moment’ of greatness to sway the voters to their side.

After the American Idol 2012 results show on Wednesday night, only two contestants will remain to battle it out in the finale for the top prize and the right to call themselves an American Idol winner. Who will win American Idol 2012 may be less about how many fans each of the finalists has and more about how dedicated those fan bases will be to voting continuously during the voting window. Inspiring those fans to vote hard and vote endlessly until they can’t vote any more is all about how fabulous the two contestants manage to perform Tuesday night.

Who will win American Idol 2012? Will it be quirky, cute Phillip Phillips with his legion of tween fan girls? Or petite powerhouse Jessica Sanchez with her wildly rabid international fan base? Well, if you go by the statistics from past seasons, it looks like Phillip Phillips has the odds on his side. A male has been the American Idol winner for four seasons in a row. Still, Phillip Phillips has not been at his best lately and he may still be off his game in the finals as he is quite ill and just trying to make it through the finals before he has surgery.

So, this just might be the season that a girl breaks the streak and finally comes out on top. Not just because Phillip Phillips isn’t at 100%, but because I’ve never seen more crazed fans out there than the Jessica Sanchez supporters running wild all over the Net. Her fans might just be rabid enough to vote so much they push Jessica Sanchez right over the edge into becoming the American Idol 2012 winner, even if her actually number of supporters might be a bit less than Phillip Phillips’ fan base.

The one-hour American Idol 2012 finale performance show begins at 8PM ET/PT on FOX and we’ll be right here with our live recap for you as soon as the show begins!

  1. jason and crew all grabing their dicks more than 20 times during the perfomance is pretty low class, you can do better than that. chuck

  2. nooooooooooooooooo   jessica well win it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go jessica go

  3. Phillip has way more originality. Jessica is just another typical Jlo/Mariah Carrey.

  4.  Really? Philip is way more original? I can find many Philips in New York city subway stations singing the same type of songs…even better. Sorry, but he is no original himself.

  5. Seriously…a standing ovation for Philip Philipps????? Geeeeeeeeezzzzzzz!!!!!! Bring Colton back!!!!!!

  6. i definitely agree…another WGWG…the likes of David Cook, Kris Allen…et.al..originality???

  7. Phillip has more originality? You’ve got to be kidding. How many times have people said he mimics Dave Mathews, and not well.

    He sings sharp and flat all the time, and can’t hit notes most of the time. He is awful.

  9. If Jessica is boring because she “stands there”, then so does Phillip, but he can’t sing.
    recently, we were all mourning and marveling at the vocals of Donna Summer, who also just stood there when she sang.

    The mark of a true singer is to be great without having diversions such as dancing and a bunch of dancers around. Jessica is awesome, a true talent who sings on key.

    Phillip is a wannabee.

  11. YOU Obviously have No clue what an original artist sounds like.Jessica is so typical and the total opposite of being original.You Want original listen to Phillip Phillips

  12. look PP aw the voice comes from feet 6 under the ground,,ouchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh,,,,disgusting, so do you you are boringggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

  13. what kinda originality? 6 feet under the ground voice? cannot even sing high notes?awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  14. theres a lot of PHILLIP in every corner of the world specially in a drinking place you so called videoke king,his perferct there..

  15. Man: you too MAN,hahahaha your a man and your joining this kinda girl thing unless your a gay,hahahahha disgusting

  16.  Look how far JLo and Mariah have gone in the business. Whose concert would you rather watch later on? A JLo/Mariah, JESSICA? or quirky Philip?

  17. Original, but his voice sucks. Tired of these guys winning that have shit for talent, because 10-12 year olds have nothing better to do then vote 100 times a night.

  18. US tweens always go after good looking males and Thats all it! they should change the show to American Beauty! if another Male Caucasian Guitarist wins.. all males during the past competitions are a “flop-pies”.. time to vote and choose a REAL TALENT!.. The VOICE will eat up AI if another MCG wins..

  19. I AGREE WITH MR. AOUIEVELARDE!.. IF ANOTHER MALE GOOD LOOKING GUITARIST WINS, FOX’S AMERICAN IDOL SHOULD KISS THE SHOW GOODBYE TO THE VOICE… THIS IS NOT AN AMERICAN BEAUTY PAGEANT! THIS IS A TALENT SEARCH AND MUST PRIORITIZE TALENT BEFORE LOOKS!

  20. Jessica is by far the best singer. Phillip can’t sing. He should not even be in the top 5.

  21. Personally, I would prefer to listen to Phillip. Sure, Jessica has an insane range that I totally respect, but Phillip isn’t like what is on the radio TODAY. As a teenager, (and no, I don’t just like Phillip for hours looks) I know that not a lot of people my age, who are the biggest music addicts, know who Dave Matthews is but they sure as heck know who Beyonce is! Also, Jessica’s performances all sound very similar not only to her previous performances, but also to the original track. Phillip gets criticized for changing the melody, but it marks what Phillil is: am artist. Furthermore, Phillip’s style is whaf is more popular at this point in time. Indie music is what is doing well on the charts right now, not big belters like Mariah and Beyonce.

  22. If PP wins.. AI can kiss the show goodbye to The VOICE… AI should not be a beauty pageant! its a TALENT SHOW before looks… OR they can change the show title to AMERICAN MALE BEAUTY SHOW!..

  23. Jessica Sanchez will be the winner all the way!!She sing better than Phillip.Jessica Sanchez is phenomenal!!

  24. Okay, who is making the most money right now in the music industry? Attractive guys and girls. Why? Because that’s the audience that is most invested in the world of music and pop culture are teenagers! Jessica is beautiful! However, Phillip’s demeanor is attractive and his voice makes people melt. American Idol is a competition to find people who would be SUCCESSFUL in the industry; not a karaoke competition or a high school talent show.

  25. Jessica definitively deserves to win! Shes younger yet boasts a better voice  than Phillip or anyone in the competition!

  26. The judges were disgusting tonight. Lopez won the pig-of-the-night award. If the thing is about music, then Jessica will win. she has been consistent, has never sung one note off key, and she has width and scope. She can swing up to those high notes and be spot on and hold them forever, and she can growl, howl and sing the bottom end like Mahalia Jackson or Aretha Franklin. She can sing r and b, rock, Celine and Whitney, and virtually anything, but she is a huge voice, a sweet real personality, and I could watch a live show all day. Phil has done well, and truly should not have beaten Joshua Ledet. JOsh and Jessica were a dream team. They should team up for a few tunes on her first album, or his. BOth Josh and Jessica will get big record deals. Phil, well, Phil will get a deal to do one run of his Bob Dylan satire show. 

  27. Ahem, Jessica was pitchy last week. The judges just didn’t say anything about it. And Bob Dylan satire? Excuse you, but he sounds nothing like Bob Dylan. Dave Matthews and Bruce Springsteen I can kind of see, but nothing like Bob Dylan. Jessica has absolutely no personality on stage and when she attempts to like in “Proud Mary” the judges hate it.

  28. Explain to me how he “can’t sing.” Oh he can’t hit an A flat? Must mean he can’t song. Oh wait, his style is mellow and singer-songwriter. So he doesn’t need to hit huge notes. He just needs to hit the notes, sing it like he means it, and perform.

  29. Phillip Phillips all the way..I love his voice and style. We have enough of those mariah’s, jlo’s out there already. Phillips singing is magic I love it..already have some of his studio version song and wait for his album….GO PHILLIP <3

  30. Like how could AMERICA say that Philips Philip is an original breakthrough artist when in fact HE is just a copy cat of Lee Dwayze and some of those artists he projects himself to be in the previous weeks? HE is NOT ORIGINAL! He is just a cheap imitation of other WGWGs!  enough said!
