Phillip Phillips wins American Idol 2012 over Jessica Sanchez

Fantasia and Joshua Ledet tore up the stage, but tonight was all about Phillip Phillips

By DiMarkco Chandler and Dock Walls

Well, it’s official, the fans have chosen Phillip Phillips over Jessica Sanchez. Now that the proverbial fat lady has sung, like the decision or not, you might as well get used to it. It’s irreversible: Phillip Phillips is this year’s American Idol winner.

Now, don’t cry for Jessica Sanchez for, by all indications, she will be in the spotlight for years to come. It’s not bad to be the American Idol runner up, and here is why.

1. Jessica is only sixteen years old and, although she has performed on “Showtime at the Apollo” and was seen on the first season of “America’s Got Talent”, her performance and vocal skills will continue to develop. Eventually, she will have a superfluous, extraordinary voice, presence, good looks and musicianship.

2. She’s attractive and some day she may even be a bombshell;

3. If you closely listen to what the judges are actually saying about these two finalist, it’s obvious they have high regard for Sanchez;

4.  Last, but not at all least, while Sanchez might one day be a Great vocalist (right now she is very good), at times she seems to show her age by over singing. Perhaps that is because she challenges herself over a broad range of songs;

Conversely, the judges have made it clear that Phillip Phillips has a brand of commercial appeal that is ready for the big stage. But don’t take my word for it. Here is a summary of what they have said about Phillips: “Dude I love that song, I love the production, Everything about that was perfect;” “That was a Phillip song and there is nothing on the radio like that;” “By virtue of your vulnerability and style you have made the world your home.”

Interestingly enough, Phillips is the only American Idol contestant who has never been up for elimination. He was the first to make it through the entire series with that distinction. I repeat, the first!

Say what you want, dream what you will, tonight belonged to Phillip Phillips.

Long live the American Idol winner 2012.

    I really loved Phill. I looked at him to be a guy as ( I AM WHO I AM ) I really love people like that. He has a great voice too. COUNTRY BOYS CAN SERVIVE. I don’t know if he is a country boy But / I love him as a person . HE IS A VERY ( SO COOL GUY ) in my book. Jessica is very fantastic to. She will make it. It was a very close Ty. She is GREAT. I wish both a Great Life & Keep doing what God gave you. Good luck to both.

    I believe David Cook nor runner-up David Archuleta were ever in the bottom 3. That season, however, it would have been just as easy to accept DA as the winner because of all the moments they had throughout the show. Sad to say, for most seasons, more often than not the ones who didn’t win prove to be more successful than the winners. All the best to Jessica and Phillip.

    Oh, my…. To those of you who are basically illiterate, your points of view come across as uneducated as your attempts to express them in print…… and its very irritating, especially with spell-check available. Too bad there isn’t a “brain-check” for dummies…. What’s not surprising is that most of the “dummies” on this blog were Jessica fans….. how appropriate.

      I had a “typo” myself, but at least I’m smart enough to be aware of my error. Please change “its” to it’s….

    Jessica has a great voice, but her performance skills are lacking…she’ll hopefully grow as a performer. The reason people were drawn to Phillip was because he has a good voice, and he’s a great performer. He drew people in with his originality and quirkiness. Jessica basically sang note for note copies of the original songs which is strictly a reflection of her age…she doesn’t yet know how to turn a song into her own creation. Wish them both the best.

      One of my favorite sayings is “Sometimes when you lose….you win!…..

      Keep in mind that although the folks at American Idol would tell you that the show is a talent contest it is anything but that! It is for all intensive purposes a Popularity contest! Jessica was obvioulsy not the most poular as if not for the save she wouldnt have made it to the finals…with that said, I think she is extreemly talented and will have a great career.

      Remember.. Chris Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, & Clay Akins lost the title of American Idol and have had much more success than several other Idol winners! Congrats to Phillip he is by far the stand-out artist of this years group!

    Jessica is the real winner, and everybody knows that. When she sang I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU..the whole world starts talking about her. WHY? becasue she sang it good…and that made people believe in her….she impressed the whole world,,,not onl with that song but a lot of songs she did in AI.

    American Idol for me is not good anymore,,,,,and I do not want to watch it anymore…the judges are sick and the people are sick especially those who voted for Philipps

    It is really disgusting to hear the result of the American Idol 2012. Jessica not winning the American Idol 2012 created in me a deep hate with that Jlopez who did not favor Jessica in her song The Prayer. Look, Jessica sings far better than JLo and Jlo to be honest doesnt know how to sing. She is is really stupid and it is nice if they kick her out of the American Idol because she is no deserving and she makes comments that are not really beneficial to the contestants, Take the crazy latina out of AI becuase she is a bitch.

      Worse than that Steven Tyler cannot sing the real singer was raymond tabano from the caruso family betrayed by his best friend Steven Tyler. Tyler a judge, he is so screwed up. But still wants his Jennifer. HA HA. And he still cannot get it.
