This week on American Idol 2012, there were a few contestants who really needed to step it up and prove they deserve to make it through to the next round, and possibly all the way to the finals. Phillip Phillips was definitely one of those.
Last week’s shocking near-elimination of Jessica Sanchez, who has been considered a heavy favorite for the finals, proved that no one is safe in this competition. (Unless you believe the conspiracy theories that last week was a fake publicity stunt.)
Phillip Phillips has always been a strong contender on American Idol 2012 this season, but he is competing with Colton Dixon for the ‘cute guy’ vote and Joshua Ledet for the ‘guy with a fab voice’ vote and he needed to smoke it this week to keep his fans happy and voting strong.
In my opinion, Phillip Phillips hit a strong home run this week with his song choices, although he was not at the absolute top of his game. The judges were quite pleased and the audience seemed more than happy with his performances. I’m going to venture to guess that Phillip will get a pass this round and has strengthened his fan base with his work on the stage tonight.
