American Idol 2012’s Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez React to Being the Final Two Standing

Yesterday’s episode of American Idol revealed that Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez will be battling for the top prize on the finale and the two are still picking their proverbial jaws up off the floor.

Speaking to USA Today about last night’s elimination, Phillip and Jessica reacted to being the Top 2. Not surprisingly, they both have mixed feelings about the whole thing.

Jessica said she is “happy” but “shocked at the same time,” and that she’s “nervous” that the odds of actually winning are now split 50/50. She also said it’s “insane” that it’s come down to just her and Phillip because she considers him and third place-r Joshua Ledet both to be super talented people.

“I literally didn’t think I was going to make it to the top two,” she said.

Phillip echoed her feeling of surprise, saying that he didn’t think he’d even make it to Hollywood Week, let alone the Idol finale.

“I never, ever dreamed or ever thought I would make it this far,” he said “It’s so crazy.”

We guess that means Phillip will have to make good on his recent promise to dress up for the finale next week!
