‘American Idol’ finale preview: Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillip speak out

What will we see during the finale?

As we near the grand finale for “American Idol” beginning Tuesday night, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez are each getting an opportunity to speak out.

As a part of a conference with reports on Monday night, Jessica promised plenty of surprises — including a wardrobe that no one is going to see coming:

“It took a while to come up with them … We were trying to come up with an elegant but also classy but also out there kind of look, edgy, so it’s definitely going to be different. I’m excited.”

Meanwhile, Phillip admitted openly to being in a great deal of pain due to a kidney problem that has impacted him all season, and it has also forced some of his performances to sink below the quality that he would like. Even with this in mind, though, he has managed to make it through this entire season without ever landing in the bottom three.

We’re already reported that Jessica will sing with Jennifer Holliday at some point this week — meanwhile, Phillip’s duet partner for the live finale Wednesday is still unknown.

Who do you think has the edge going into the finale, and who do you expect to win? You can check out some of our picks via the rankings over at this link.
