As featured at Fox on Tuesday night, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez sang three songs each, with the first song being picked by American Idol Executive Producer Simon Fuller, the second song as their favorite piece, while the third one was dubbed as the ‘American Idol winner’s song’.

Phillips, 21, who reportedly need a surgery immediately after his kidney problem was learned to be getting worst, sang “Home” in the third and last round and was well-praised by the three judges, and even gave him a standing ovation.

“I love the song, I love you, everything about that was perfect, that was your best performance of the night, a true artist, I love it, brilliant genius.” Randy Jackson was quoted as saying, with the crowd continuously clapping their hands.

On the other hand, Jennifer Lopez noted his performance was so different, saying that “it was just Phillip and nothing on the radio sounds like that.” Steven Tyler said, “by virtue of your sound and style, you were perfect tonight, you are the man”.

For Jessica, the judges had mixed reactions in her first two performances but notably agreed on the last round that they did not love when she sang “Change Nothing”, with Steven saying that he knows how good she can sing but stressed out that it was not the proper song for her.
