“Next week #IDOL finalists will sing:- 1.Their favorite song of the series. 2. A song chosen by Simon Fuller. 3.Their individual #new-single.” Nigel Lythgoe (@dizzyfeet) tweeted that day, who earlier revealed his favorite American Idol 2012 finalist.

“I promised I would reveal my favorite when they were voted off the show so….. it was Joshua. However, I am thrilled for Jessica & Phillip.” Lythgoe tweeted hours after the American Idol 2012 Top 2 finalists have been announced.

Lythgoe, 62, who is also the ‘So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD)‘ creator and one of its judges, also cleared that the trend for the American Idol 2012 votes are changing every week, and that Jessica and Phillip did not always dominate the votes.

Last Wednesday night, the American Idol 2012 Top 3 finalists also sang three songs each, with Joshua earning a standing ovation from the three judges after he sang “I’d Rather Go Blind” by Etta James in Round 1.

On the other hand, Jessica received mixed reactions, who admitted earlier that she is suffering from a sore throat before that competition night, but was still praised by Steven Tyler after she sang Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”.

Meanwhile, the American Idol 2012 Top 2 performance night will be on Tuesday, May 22, and the Grand Finale will be on Wednesday, May 23, where it will either be Jessica Sanchez or Phillip Phillips, who was said to be suffering from kidney problems, to be declared as the official American Idol Season 11 winner.
