It is not easy for us FILIPINOS to accept that Phillip Phillips won the contest.  But it is a fair game considering that both of them, Phil and Jessica performance last night was a kind of a snooze-fest for me, it really got my attention.  Two hours of performances, look-backs, reminders of eliminated contestants we barely got to know, and of course, the big reveal.  

For me Jessica Sanchez certainly proven herself in spite the fact she had problem with her voice and control over the last few weeks but indeed survive the game.   

The finale was a huge BANG!!!   Star-studded event with John Fogerty, Fantasia Barrino, Chaka Khan, Reba and Neil Diamond among the guest performers who took the stage along with the two finalists and the previously eliminated contestants for various musical numbers.   Rihanna performed solo, as did Jennifer Lopez both had fun with lasers. And the most ever idol for all Steven Tyler, he  did pretty great when Aerosmith took the stage toward the end of the episode.

How can I forget the first proposal made in AI, Former contestants Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo became engaged on stage.  Young, a season five finalist told host Ryan Seacrest that he and DeGarmo had just moved in together. Then Young got down on one knee and popped the question to her.  DeGarmo, a runner-up in season three, tearfully accepted, her head bobbing up and down. 

Going back to the finale.  

A record-breaking 132.3 million votes were cast following last night’s American Idol 

performance show – the highest number of votes in the show’s history and a new World 


Phillip Phillips is the WINNER.   Phillips seems to have swayed the majority of voters in his direction after the amazing performance of his original song “Home.”  And Jessica Sanchez is the runner-up.   

Both had good runs, with Jessica facing near elimination earlier on in the season and Phillip 

reportedly struggling with some medical issues. It's a happy night for both of them and the 

end to a solid season. 

JESSICA SANCHEZ you are the winner too in our hearts! Thank you for bringing great pride to Filipinos!
