As featured at Fox on Tuesday night, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips sang three songs each, with Jessica being the first Top 2 finalist with a Filipino blood and to be the youngest American Idol winner if she wins, while Phillip aims to be the fifth consecutive male to win the said title.

Sanchez, 16, who was saved by the three judges last month during the Top 7 elimination night, received a lot of standing ovations from her earlier performances particularly when she sang “I Will Always Love You” by the late Whitney Houston.

On the other hand, Philips, 21, who most of the time performs while playing with his guitar, reportedly has been suffering from kidney problems since last year and was hospitalized after the Top 13 performance night, has never landed in the Bottom 3 or 2.

For the first set, with the songs chosen by American Idol Executive Producer Simon Fuller, Jessica was the first one to perform and sang “I Have Nothing”, while Phillip sang “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King.

For the second set, which was dubbed as their favorite song of the season, Jessica sang Celine Dion‘s “The Prayer” while Phillip sang ‘Movin’ Out’ by Billy Joel. For the third and last round, Jessica performed “Change Nothing” and Phillip sang “Home”, where he received a standing ovation from the judges.
