Home Lyrics - Phillip Phillips winners single

Submitted by The Critic on Wed, 2012-05-23 17:56

Hold on to me as you go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
Although this wave is stringing us a long
Just know you're not alone
Cause I'm gonna make this place your home

Settle down it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear
Trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost you can always be found
Just know you're not alone
Cause I'm gonna make this place your home

Change Nothing Lyrics - Jessica Sanchez winners single

Submitted by The Critic on Wed, 2012-05-23 17:55

Everyday I'm waking up to deja vu
Someone's always telling me not to stick with you
could it be the nights we spent up fixing us
I never thought that we were really that messed up
should have shut my mouth and kept it all to myself
cause now they've got me feeling I should be with somebody else

They say we don't fit together
and I could do better
there's always something
They don't know the hell we've been through
cause when you hold me like you do

that's when I want to change nothing
that's when I want to change nothing

should have shut my mouth and kept it all to myself

They say we don't fit together
and I could do better
there's always something
They don't know the hell we've been through
cause when you hold me like you do

that's when I want to change nothing
that's when I want to change nothing

Prediction: Who will be the 2012 American Idol Grand Finalists

Submitted by The Critic on Thu, 2012-05-17 17:09

Taking a look at our weekly run down of our poll results we can see that the public don't really seem to mind who wins as it really is a close, three horse race.

Your favorite last night appears to have been Phillip Phillips who received 43% of the vote while Jessica Sanchez had 34% and Joshua Ledet came in last with 23% of the vote.

When it came to who you wanted to see eliminated tonight it was the closest we've ever had this poll with Jessica Sanchez marginally ahead on 34% while both Joshua and Phillip scored a dead even 33% each.

Our poll asking which two finalists you'd like to see was again interesting. Phillip Phillips and Joshua Ledet were your most preferred with 37% while Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez came in close behind with 35%.  Joshua and Jessica were third on 28% of the vote.
