It was just the Georgia thing I was curious about.
That really sums it all up. Nobody is under any illusions that Phillip has a "great" voice, on technical singing ability alone both Jess and Josh don't just beat him but run rings around him. But what he has, he uses far more effectively and emotionally, such that he connects with the audience more. And of course he's got the guitar...

Pretty much everyone knows Philip doesn't have a powerhouse voice, he is cut from more of an entertainer's cloth, using both his vocals and the instruments to produce performances sung with heart and vulnerability. Philip also has his go-to growl, but it's less harsh on the ears when he goes there, and he has his own type of musical sensibility that is now his own, and people are used to it. He's been able to develop and maintain his style while performing on AI, and on a show where 90% of the contestants are still trying to find their style, he simply embraces his own style, and does his own thing, regardless of the words of wisdom that have been tossed his way.
Report is rather vague - but maybe kidney issues?TonyD said:You forgot to i nclude what the surgery was for.
I REALLY did and thought it was a nice duet. Joshua and Gospel music like that I really enjoy and thought he would win. But as a reporter on our local Fox pointed out, many times the votes for those that win don't translate to the general American society. Others that did not win have gone on to sell more records or do better overall than those that have won.Carl Miller said:I liked seeing Phillip perform with Fogerty. Phillip seemed to genuinely enjoy it which is what you'd hope for a musician. I though Aerosmith was good as well. The Johsua/Fantasia performance was an absolute trainwreck. Did anyone here like that?
