Although my favorite (Jessica Sanchez) didn’t win American Idol Season 11, I would still like to congratulate Phillip Phillips. From the title of this post, you may sense a bit of bitterness and I am a little bit bitter.
Life goes on though. Phillip Phillips will have his teenie bopper followers buying his albums, and Jessica Sanchez will get her own contract and sing for many of us in the years to come. She may even star on the movie version of Miss Saigon… who knows.
One thing is for certain though – – American Idol is really not a talent show. The winners win by popularity votes. I just felt like it was 1999 all over again when I watched and supported Ms. Mirriam Quiambao for Miss Universe. We ended up devastated after a very close win, taking up 1st Runner-Up.
Anyways, we will all move on.
Here’s the video when Phillip Phillips was announced as this year’s winner on American Idol.
