If Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez were equally promoted, Jessica would be a lot more successful worldwide than Phillip. Without the 2012 Summer Olympics, Phillip's "Home" would have been a flop.

Perks of winning. They can't give her the same amount of promotion because what would have been the point of the competition if the winner and runner-up got the same prize.

I wish they did though. blarg.gif

It's getting radio play on some radio stations. Not many, since it was never officially sent to radio yet. I think Interscope might be testing what the reaction to it is before setting an official add date.

Incorrect. Home was already a hit prior to the olympics. The olympics merely helped the longeveity of the song

1.Home had sold over 600k before Olympics. Without Olympics, Home still could have sold over platinum. Not smash but at least mediocre hit.

2.Home became a big hit after Olympics and got a lot promotions since then. Tonight is not a big hit like home, and Jessica is not a big name. So Tonight doesn`t have a chance to get a lot promotions like Home. People can`t blame Interscope doesn`t promote Tonight much.

3.All depend on song quality. Tonight is a good song but it is not great enough. That is why it only sold 13k after Idol performance.

Phillip`s GGG sold about 20k the week before his Idol performance. Then GGG sold 65k after his Idol performance. That means if without radio play, Phillip`s Idol performance still can let GGG sell about 40k. David Cook`s single was used Olympics song but only sold 1.5M eventually. So again, the song quality is very important.

4.GGG only is played on HAC and AAA. It sells 45k-50k every week. That is good sales. Home became smash because POP radio played it a lot.

Radio play is everything. One single performance of a song by itself has never meant a lot in the way of sales. People need to hear a song multiple times before they will buy it.

GGG and Home both have had a lot of radio play while Tonight is just starting, so it is kind of silly to compare them right now.

Looks like the Milwaukee station will auto add it this week, it only played it 6 times last week and has 15 plays this week. Because Interscope's lack of push after the Idol appearance, the song has little radio buzz. Now it has to contend with a new Selena Gomez song. Its starting to look grim for an actual add date before the album releases. The lack of radio play is going to affect the album release. You can't rely of a sinking Idol season and a ready to be cancelled show like Glee for all you pre-release promo.

Okay so I like Phillip and I have purchased his album...but can someone tell me why this ^ person is in this forum? (Just a rhetorical question. The above response rubbed me in the wrong way)

What I was saying was if she even got HALF of the promo (making for some decent promo)

BTW, I don't agree w/ the one who posted that Home would've flopped because it is a good song.Thanks to Drew and Greg who wrote that

I was not interested in comparing Phillip`s single with Jessica`s. But this thread compared Phillip`s Home and GGG with Jessica`s Tonight. I didn`t agree some points so I posted my some rough opinions.

GGG is still very much riding on the success of Home, which is very much riding on the success that came after the NBC Olympics used it as the gymnastics theme song. I heard that song more than anything else when watching their coverage of the 2012 Olympics, because gymnastics is one of the most popular sports and gets some of the highest ratings.

It's pretty obvious just listening to GGG that it is an attempt to recapture the "magic" of Home all over again. I guarantee you PP surrendered artistic control on that one.

Home & GGG became hits because their is an Alternative wave on mainstream radio. Promo is great for any artist, and Phillip just got a good gig with the Olympics. Phillip just caught on with the trend on radio, and made a decent album. Which is why I wanted Jessica to go more of an RnB route, because RnB is making a wave this year, and she would've have caught on way more better.

Not just responding to your quote but all of them ... Its just a dumb debate, but some people still like to have it ... two different artists ... Tonight is a good single, and is as good as anything playing out there in that genre ... promotion is very important. If people want to crack up about it, or the lack of promotion, that is a good conversation ... Why Phillip sells well is irrelevent, if luck was on his side, then luck was on his side ...
