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...

American Idol Finalists

PHILLIP PHILLIPS!

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?

It appears that there is really no chance of anyone other that a white male will ever win American Idol ever again.

i don't watch AI even when JASMINE TRIAS was a contestant . . . i started watching AI when I watched JESSICA SANCHEZ sang I will always love you . . .when the top 7 were choses, i already knew that PP wiill win . . .then joshua was eliminated . . .and jimmy choosing wrong songs for jessica, everything was scripted. Phillips won not because of talent anyone can sing the songs that he sang . . .but not everyone can sing the songs that JESSICA sang . . . JESSICA should have won . . . and please stop convincing yourselves that phillips has talent because he doesn't . . . stop watching AI because the show has low standard for music . . the judges gave comments, to help phillips win maybe the producer wanted him to win . . . but the viewers are not that dumb to see what should have been the outcome of AI

Young people dont listen on boring country music with acoustic guitar on it

Phillip won because he has the kind of current sound that young people are buying today. Jessica and Joshua have the traditional sound which is not selling many records right now.

America knows by heart that Jessica deserves to win and we will support her to the fullest. AI is trully a popularity contest with a judge favoritism and not a talent contest. I wont be surprised if their rating go down in the future. More power to Jessica S.

Hello A-D-E-L-A
JESSICA is a Filipino. .and she was proud of he r0ot. .
Philip was won because he is american. . Not because he is the best of all the contestant. .
Elise or joshua deserves to be in the final 2, with jessica. .
AMERICAN IDOL is a popularity c0ntest. . And m0st of the voters didnt kn0w what is the real meaning of a true talented people. .
WOLD IDOL jessica.

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.
