The American Idol Season 11 finale results on May 23, 2012 will set a record for the show. Next week’s American Idol finals will pit Jessica Sanchez against Phillip Phillips.

If Sanchez wins the 2012 American Idol finale, she will become the youngest and first female winner since Jordin Sparks beat Blake Lewis in Season 6.

A win by Phillips will make him American Idol’s fifth guitar-playing male contestant winner.

Sanchez, a Filipino-Mexican-American singer, was almost eliminated from the show during the American Idol Top 7. The judges’ save led to an overwhelming support by the viewers during the next stages of the contest.

With TV critics on Phillips side, record producer and mentor Jimmy Iovine has given his piece of advice for Sanchez. According to Iovine, “It’s about the songs.”
