American Idol Performance Recap: Passing Judge-ment

by at . Comments

It was a busy Tuesday for the trio of remaining American Idol finalists last night, as Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet sang three songs apiece.

That's a total of nine performances in two hours. Which of the opening acts did you like best? The judges selected the first numbers last night and we've posted each below. Watch now and then vote on your favorite.


Joshua Ledet kicked the night off with his version of an Etta James' classic. Are you down his take on "I'd Rather Go Blind?"

Up next, Jessica Sanchez continued her trend of tackling the most impressive artists of our time. She covered Mariah Carey's "My All."

Finally, Phillip Phillips went "Beggin" for your vote. Did he earn it with this audition?



He doesn't sing bad it was just wierd. My husband and I were rellay creeped out by the whole performance. I think he was way creepier than Constantine from a few seasons back. Did he have to tongue his teeth so much?!?! I almost had to take a shower after he was done!


I wish that the judges will stop giving Josua standing ovations, because he is so stereotype he screams in every song and he sounds nasal and flat. He is a nice guy but he certainly does not have the talent that Jessica and Phillip has. Please judges - remain seated and give credit where credit is due!!!
