'American Idol' finale: Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez say 'whatever happens, happens'
Phillips agrees. "Yeah, Whatever happens happens -- it's not the end of the world," he says. "I'm not going to be depressed if I don't win or anything. It's all fun and games."
That said, they're still taking the finale seriously. "I'm definitely excited, but I'm also stressed. There are songs that we haven't even gone through yet," Sanchez reveals. "So it's definitely stressful but we're both really excited."
Phillips says he's not changing his overall outlook on "American Idol," though. "For me, it's just like another week. Just have fun. You can't let it stress you out. Whatever happens, happens. We're glad it's getting close to the end and it's almost over. It's a long, tough journey. It's not like it is on TV. We're just gonna have fun."
So, what can we expect from the finale extravaganza? The finalists couldn't talk about their songs, but they did talk about their looks. Sanchez says her outfits will definitely be surprising. "It took a while to come up with them," she says. "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."
And Phillips could even change up his signature pea-soup-colored T-shirts for a suit -- maybe. "I don't know, you might be intrigued. I might be looking a little sexy," he says, laughing. "I don't know. You'll see!"
