@me123 NO ONE IS PITTING PHILLIP FOR HIS SICKNESS A LOT OF PEOPLE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT BECAUSE HE'S NOT TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL BAD FOR HIM. JESSICA IS A BEYONCE WANNABE AND NEEDS MORE TIME TO MATURE INTO AN AUTHENTIC ARTIST WHICH PHILLIP ALREADY IS!

Jessica is young nothing wrong with being young and would be the first girl to win since Jordan but she cant sing a varity of styles She only has one style. I would like to see Philip win but I would be surprise if he does

I agree jill4short Jessica is the winner. Philip has a unique voice, but he ALWAYS uses it. Jessica is the BOMB! Oh and one more thing. Hey judges don't tell us who to vote for and why, have you noticed the person the judges asks to vote for they get out. Philip Philips it's your time to get out!

I've loved Jessica from the beginning but I came to really enjoy Joshua Ledet. It would have been a "really big show" with the two of them as finalist. What a competition that would have been.

It's really sad when the bigots and racists come out and say venimous comments of other nationalities. I guess racism is still alive and well in America. Whoever wins tonight, God bless him or her. Both are great American artists! The American people will render the final verdict.

You dont wish to win in America and with a natioalistic title American Idol and you dont look white monkey. Learn from the Baseball game many years ago where the Filipino won but were strip off the title later.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
