American Idol 2012 is down to the Top 9 and Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips are the favorites to win the show's 11th season in June. What Are The Chances Of Winning Season 11 For Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillips And The Rest Of The Top 9?
In this week's American Idol, contestants will sing a song from one of their idols as the Top 9 battle it out to win the competition.
Jessica Sanchez, 16, has been a fan-favorite and elicits standing ovations from judges Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez.
Sanchez continued in that tradition last week when she sang Billy Joel's Everybody Has A Dream. She is listed as having 7 to 4 odds of winning American Idol, according to sportsbook.com.
When God was giving out vocal cords, you were so at the front of the line, Tyler told the teen. Jackson said the performance was perfection.
The 16-year-old Sanchez's closest competitor is Phillip Phillips, 21, who has 9 to 4 odds of taking home the title.
In his last performance, Phillips sang an acoustic guitar-fueled version of Movin' Out (Anthony's Song) for the Billy Joel-themed episode.
Rap mogul P.Diddy urged Phillips to not use the guitar for the performance, but Phillips stuck with his instincts and gave a performance that was liked by the judges.
