"The last two get record deals and she sings so beautiful, she'll be on her way," Tyler says of the 16-year-old Sanchez. "She'll have a great career."
As for Phillips, Tyler says he admires that Phillips kept doing his own thing throughout the season. "He just don't care and that's beautiful. I said from the first, I thought he'd win, only because he's so vulnerable," Tyler says. "I think he's going to be a movie star. I don't know why but I just think that but I look at his face and I see James Dean."
Tyler says he's impressed with Phillips' development as an artist throughout the season. "He's real. We watched him go from a guy that was pulling himself out of his soul to a guy who can sing a melody line without feeling uncomfortable. He's just really evolved and he's been vulnerable."
