Phillip as a terrific singer in IMHO, but I think they should keep his sound bites to a minimum. The things they air on him make him a little harder to connect to as a whole. However I appreciate his song choices and his vibe.
I think "the save" is a good thing. Good singers go home because the voters do that thing where they think everyone else will vote for the best singer, so they instead vote for someone they feel sorry for. To me, the save is a reminder that that is not how the competition works and that it's a singing competition, not a popularity contest. People have resumed voting for Jessica since then it seems.
I know Jessica is the better singer, but I really wish the judges had a save to use on Colton. He was unique and I liked that.
I do like Phillip (like I said, I like most of the contestants) and I agree that he makes some good song choices, especially for his style. I have to disagree about his soundbites though. His extremely dry and sarcastic humor hits home with me. I love to listen to him talk about the other contestants. Lol
My last comment was one I made on FB after hearing "The Queen Experience." If it's not Freddie Mercury, it's just not good enough. The singer was fine, but knowing the song as done by Freddie made the new guy seem lacking. I wish I had been old enough to see Queen in concert before Freddie passed away. I can't even imagine how the music industry today would be if he was still alive.
