Each finalist performed three songs. The first, a judges choice. The second, a personal choice. And the third, Jesus’s choice …oh, wait …Jimmy Iovine’s choice.

It didn’t appear as if Phillip’s Dad was allowed his firearm in the Kodak Theater, however. Phew. Ryan rightly pointed out to Randy, however, think it through before you speak ill of Phillip Phillips, especially when his Dad’s in the audience.
