American Idol Results: Who Won?

by at . Comments

Following a record 132 million votes, performances from Neil Diamond, Rihanna and Aerosmith and a proposal, American Idol crowned a season 11 champion tonight.

Was it ballad singer extraordinaire Jessica Sanchez? Or Dave Matthews prototype Phillip Phillips? Unlike Ryan Seacrest, we won't keep you in suspense for very long. The winner is...

Not exactly a shocker, huh? The guitar-playing crooner was considered a favorite from his very first audition, considering his similar qualities to every other American Idol champion of the past five seasons.

Jessica appeared genuinely happy for Phillip upon hearing the announcement, as Ryan handed Phillip his guitar, Phillips took the crowd "Home" and eventually dissolved into tears, heading into the crowd to hug his parents.

Did Phillip Phillips deserve to win?


Phillip is one of my favorite contestants ever on AI. He's uniquely talented, to be a bit redundant, he's really one of a kind. There are many Jessica's out there but only one Phillip. Be well, PP and know you're loved!


personally, if it would have came down with jessica and joshua it would have been a SINGING COMPETITION. but it didn't. so for my own opinion jessica is way better than phillip but it is called American IDol. It's not too much of a shocker that PIhilip won. btw i was rooting for jessica :DD i'm a filipina :DD


Why r u deleting my comment. I simply said that there is no need for name calling, its a stupid show. Noone here is making any money of these idols. Relax. its not that serious. hope that you show the same passion in the elections that you r showing for this show


Why are you guys calling each other names, who all are not gaining any money from this show relax. Its just mindless entertainment. Its not even that serious. Lets hope that yo all show the same passion for the presidential election, that you all showed for American Idol. I doubt it though


Ed: I think that you are right, regarding the judges firing. I think part of the reason for the decreased vieweship is JLO, she made the show about her what a egomaniac. I told my mom that if she came back next year I wouldnt watch it again. Im please to know she was fired,along with tyler who contributed nothing to the table. What about Randy is his job safe?


very obvious in the finals that the Jessica was set-up to lose. What with the song composed for her original! While Phillip was helped along with all the props. AI, you should be ashamed of yourselves! Do you believe in KARMA?


i strongly doubt the numbers. i believe the lines for Jessica were jammed! why don't they show the votes and proof that lines were not jammed? they've been rigging the finals except for Kelly Clarkson.


rigged!!!!! american idol judges are dishonest!!!!


philip is a good singer, but, jessica is the BEST....


jessica did not win becauz she's not a full-blooded american, thats why....she has the BEST voice so far....but in are hearts...SHE IS THE WINNER....goodluck girl...

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.
