American Idol Performance Recap: Jams by Jimmy

by at . Comments

First, the American Idol finalists listened to the judges last night.

Then, they were given the freedom to select their own songs.

Finally, Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet were tasked with a cover by Jimmy Iovine, closing a busy evening with the following three performances. Which did you like best?


Joshua Ledet was given a Mary J. Blige track, "No More Drama." Watch and listen and compare now to his take on John Lennon.

Jessica Sanchez went old school with "I'll Be There," a single made famous by the Jackson 5 and then even more famous by Mariah Carey.

Phillip Phillips then went romantic with Bob Seger' "We've Got Tonight," proving that he doesn't always need a guitar in his hands.
