    Nonsensical. Her voice blows his out of the water. She’ll be fine – I have a feeling she’ll pull a Jennifer Hudson in no time.

    The same guys have won for years now, David Cook,Chris Allen, Lee Dewyze ,and now Phillip . Good for him, but Jessica is way more talented. Little girls should not be able to vote.

    AI is so predictable. He is a good performer, someone similar to Mumford and sons (vocally) but he doesn’t have the chops like Jessica. Glad to see he was so overwhelmed by it though.

    If Phillip did win, they need to change the name of American Idol to “Who would you vote for if you were a 13 year old girl”, or possibly “American’s Smiling Growler Contest”. Jessica, according to anyone who knows about talented singers, is in a league FAR ahead of Phillip, who will end up singing in a lounge at the Holiday Inn in a couple years.

    America keeps voting for these cute white guys every season yet their albums always flops. Yet the 2 most successful Idol winners were….women.

    What only white guys win American Idol now? Not that I think it’s a racial thing more than just a bunch of silly girls who only vote for the guys that they think are hot instead of the best performers. Anyone knows the shows demographics in regards to viewership? It would be interested to know because the guys who have won over the past few years have not had a lot of commercial success in real life.

    Three years ago i wanted Adam to win , he didn’t. Last year i wanted Haley Reinhart to win, she didn’t, This year it was either Joshua or Jessica , they both didn’t. American Idol is all about being safe.Nothing against Phillip , he’s a nice guy.But When little girls pick up the phone they go for who’s cute, they don’t go for talent.There should be an age limit or something, or they should just let the judges pick The American Idol , because clearly the voting system is messed up.

    Renee Says:

    Un freaking believable! Another guy with a forgettable voice gets crowned. Both Joshua and Jessica were light years ahead of this guy. I hope all those little girls who voted for him will buy his record!

    NancyT Says:

    Hell, they all suck. Jessica should be grateful the judges saved her ass. America wanted her out weeks ago!

    “she’ll be like jennifer hudson”
    um no. She’d need to have a much better voice than the one she has.
    people said the same about Pia Toscano and nobody cares about her anymore.

    There are a lot of women out there with big voices, unless you’re Sarah Brightman, i don’t care for you.

    Phil has that extra something and has a lot more commercial potential, regardless of how much you hate on him.

    Krista Says:

    Yes! He so deserved to win. Anyone who thinks that jessica is better is so wrong. She’s a whitney housten wannabee and he makes songs original and better! Go Phillip Phillips, you rock!

    Rebecca Says:

    @Krista: You are just another person that thinks that Philip is “HOT” even though every time I hear him sing I want to slap him.. He just sucks! Jessica has the talent here.. She deserves to win I may be young but I don’t care about looks I care about talent..

    Jessica deserves it. She is the talented one..

    Harley Says:

    HELL NO!!! I was really hoping Jessica would have won. I agree with Sheila … like adam lambert american idol season 8. I’ve seen him come back on AI and I hear his name on the radio. But for the life of me … I can’t even remember who won season 8 with out having to google who it was. So there was really no Shocker that Philip won.

    Jessica is still the winner to me … Phillip … may had some really good songs, but still was never as good as Jessica. If this show was more about finding really good talent and not just a cute guy that could play a guitar (which we already had last season) who is every young girl or grandma’s eye candy they want to watch every week until AI is over (with only one exception of Scotty McCreery: because the wgwg was really awesome). I really do believe Jessica would have came up on top.

    Fun facts: Expert say Jessica won’t win because … check this link out

    for the past 4 seasons it’s been all white guys that’s won on AI.

    Season 7- David Cook, S8: Kris Allen, S9: Lee Dewyze, & S10: Scotty McCreery. Now S11: Phillip Pillips …. do you see a trend going on?

    The last female that won AI was S6: Jordin Sparks.

    So why should anyone be shocked that Phillip won AI. .

    To Rose1987389!!!: What a racist remark! You complain about this? What about all of the “black only” groups? Miss black America, BET, minority loans, Magic Johnson Foundation (for blacks only)…etc…etc…etc Why don’t you complain about that///// huh? That is the real issue, not American Idol.

    Carol Says:

    @Eric: Actually, I think you are wrong. Jessica does have an amaazing voice, but she never really showed what her style was. She would always sing something that would make her voice nice to be heard, no matter what style that was. Philip was philip from beggining till the end. When people told him what to do, how he should sing, his choice was to say “no, this is the musician I am”. You don’t need to have the greatest voice to be an amazing singer and musician. Although Jessica has an amazing voice, every time Philip was on stage, you could feel his performance through lyrics and melody and harmony and everything. That is what makes an idol.
