American Idol Grand Finale: PHILLIP PHILIPS is Season 11 winner!
After so many months and over 130 million votes, American Idol Season 11 has crowned their latest idol... PHILLIP PHILIPS!
The show was obviously rigged to Philips favor. All the production number of the other finalists were pimped with smoke machines, dancers, choirs and stars. And Jessica Sanchez's solos were bare.
Thank God for the outstanding duet with Jennifer Holiday, Jessica ends Idol with a strong impression on who the real singer is among the two of them.
The general observation is that no mixed race should even try for Idol. It is for Americans and Americans alone. How sad...
But no matter what happens, Jessica Sanchez is loved by the world and is a real star. She has the voice and she can out sing Phillips anywhere.
At the same time, Jessica is the one supported by other international artists like Akon and Sony head Tomy Mottola.
Lastly, maybe it is a blessing. She may be 2nd, but she is going the same path as Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert and Katherine McPhee. Phillips has the title, but Jessica will have the career.
Maybe soon, we will see Phillip Philips in an Ayala Mall show hahaha! And Jessica singing alongside huge artists around the world.
For those who didn't catch the show, here's the program for the night.
