I must admit I thought both boys would in the final two. I was prepared to see Jessica Sanchez go home tonight. Apparently, America had other ideas. Joshua has a career ahead of him and we wish him well with his future endeavors.
Next week, the Idol finale will be Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez.
Last night was all Lee! The judges all agreed Lee won the first round and Simon went so far as to say he crushed the competition. After the second round, where contestants sang the judges choice for them, Lee proved he is “in it to win it” as Randy Jackson is so fond of saying. Lee’s version of “Hallelujah” was awesome. Simon hand-picked this song for Lee and I believe based on Simon’s reaction, Lee exceeded Simon’s expectations for him.
Crystal did well as always but she didn’t have a WOW moment like Lee did. Casey James continued to prove he is out of his league and doesn’t belong there. Vote For The Worst is right. He is the worst and should have gone home several weeks ago!
Based on the audience and judge’s reactions last night, Lee DeWyze is the front-runner going in the next week’s finale. If the finale doesn’t include Lee and Crystal then something is beyond wrong. Simon is clearly on team Lee.
