Jessica Sanchez: Phillip Phillips Deserved to Win American Idol

by at . Comments

Upon winning American Idol last night, Phillip Phillips dissolved into tears and hugged his parents. It was a beautiful, pure moment of happiness.

But, moments prior to that celebration, Jessica Sanchez treated viewers to a lovely moment herself: expressing true pride and satisfaction when her opponent's name was called.

"I really think that Phillip deserves to win and I'm so happy for him," Sanchez told reporters after all was said and done, adding of Phillip: "He has his funny side and his humble side and he's just an amazing, original artist."

The same is true for Sanchez, who may have lost, but who was involved in what most consider the best performance of the evening: a duet with Jennifer Holliday on "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going." Watch, be amazed and wish this runner-up luck now:

SHOULD PHILLIP PHILLIPS HAVE WON AMERICAN IDOL?

3 things:
1. JESSICA should have been declared the winner.
2. Every other word out of Randy's mouth these days is dawg this and dawg that. Enough.
3. Most of all...BRING BACK SIMON COWELL!!!!! Case closed. Peace.

No...AI was the one robbed. They lost the opportunity to redeem the years they failed to produce real winners. Jessica could earn the prize they were offering, she's used to working her butt off, but AI could never win back the remaining trust some of the people were still holding on for them. The last song sang on that stage was a sad funeral dirge as people shook their heads in regret for the death of something that was once beautiful.

I am really disappointed about who won the Idol for 2012. I don't think Phillips won for his talent---he won for his personality and looks. This is a singing contest!!!The other runners-up were much more talented!!! Idol was a popularity contest this year and not a legitimate talent contest. I am not going to waste my time on a phony production anymore. Anyone else with ability to see real singing talent should decide to skip watching the show.
