Backstage Buzz At American Idol: Will Jessica Be The Last One Standing?

It’s kind of crazy to think we’re less than a week away from the American Idol finale. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were gearing up for a brand new season and now we’re thisclose to crowning one of the remaining three contestants!

After last night’s three song sing off, Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillips and Joshua Ledet caught up with Buzznet after the show to talk about the final elimination and Steven Tyler’s prediciton that Jessica will be the one to walk away with the title of season 11’s American Idol!

Everyone was a little shocked when Steve openly predicted Jessica woud be the winner, but the diva-in-training brushed it off backstage, appreciative of the comment, but isn’t banking on it to take her to the finale.

“It’s top three,” she said. “I’m just trying to enjoy the moment. Anyone can win at this moment. I love hearing that [I could be the last one standing], but America is the one that votes, so we’ll just see what happens.”

While some may think Steven’s words rattled the competition, Joshua says, that’s just not true.

“Steven saying Jessica could be the last one standing, I think he was legit because she’s amazing. I want to win, but at this point we’re all winners. I’m not saying I don’t care, but I would be just as happy to see one of my friends win, Jessica or Phillip.”

Phillip agreeed that at this point, everyone is a success.

“We’re all so numb because there’s nothing we can feel since it’s almost over,” he told us. “We pray before we go onstage. It’s not a competition, everyone is so different. I’m not the best singer, but I love having fun with the music.”

Who do you think will walk away with the American Idol title? Let us knwo in the comments!
