All the talent in the world doesn’t supercede experience and uniqueness. Jessica is awesome but young which is why the save flustered her so much. I still think Phillip would have one (and glad he did). She will be awesome once she has more experience and let’s herself go. The tour will help to season this talented young lady into a star.

What a bunch of cry babies! Before the Finale, JS fans kept talking about how she WAS the next Idol and how she was going to win it all. Then she doesn’t win and alll of a sudden winning AI is not important, it doesn’t mean anything…
Jessica is an extremely talented singer for any age, but the fact that after years of training and performing she was not able to take the prize says alot about her.
She’ll record a few songs then crash and burn. ALL of the previous Idol contestants who have been successfull have had personality and charisma which she lacks.
Hope you gets some really powerful ballads.

look who ‘s talking who sounds the real cry baby. hahahahaha we’re laughing at you coz you dont know what youre talking about. Just wait and see, if she dont succeed, then maybe youre right. But at the rate things are going, youre gonna cry even harder when JS blooms. She might blow you away, but wait youre nothing, she will blow away other contemporary singers…. LOL

its not always personality and charisma, look at the other winners who did have that. but people lost interest bec they did not deliver the real thing, their voice accdg to the people’s taste. Just like J Hudson who didi not have that charismaa or personality youre talking about. But later she proved it can be developed. REAL TALENT IS WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING, WITH STAYING POWER. i can see that in JSanchez…hope she’ll get there….

I believe Jessica is not lacking in personality at all. The main reason she did not win is due to a tendency for American Idol fans to vote for a white guy with a guitar over an extremely talented singer.

AI is no longer credible, the producers have to exert efforts to correct lapses in its voting process,make it fair for all races allowed to audition, or else it will begin to decompose…

i dont buy that reason conveyed by JS, this is my theory about that, maybe the producers of AI told her to say that just to save their faces of what happened. Everybody knows JS did not pushed herself too much. Just right, everything she did was just perfect. The fact she reached top 2 proves she did everything right after being saved.(which of course was done just to keep people interested in the show) Poor girl, but you’ll have the last laugh for sure!

I agree that when Jessica Sanchez was voted out early on and saved by the judges was just a show by the management and wasn’t really voted out. They just extended the show for one day and gained better ratings.

It didn’t shock me when Phillip Phillips won. I had a feeling he was gonna win. But I still had hope Jessica Sanchez would win. She has an amazing voice! Such great talent.. Phillip has talent too. I wanted Jessica to break the WGWG thing. But sadly it didn’t happen. I was a fan of Jessica since day 1 .. When she was eliminated but then saved by the judges it pushed me even more to vote. And I think that was American idols purpose. As you can tell Jessica has the most support by her fans. She has the most twitter followers, most of her YouTube videos are more than 1 million, and she has the most likes on Facebook on her fan page. Jessica has so much support from celebrities, talkshow hosts, etc.. Even they expected her to win. But for me Jessica was robbed ever since. American idol put her on the top 2 because they know how much support she gets. If Jessica wasn’t in the top 2 rating would drop even more. And views would drop huge. When joshua was eliminated ratings weren’t drop much and views were still ok. Im Not saying that Joshua didn’t have so much support.. Its just compared to Jessica’s and Phillip’s support his is the least. For me the top 2 should’ve been Jessica and Joshua. They are both talented artists. When they announced Phillip made it to top 2 i had a feeling a WGWG would win. I never really payed attention to Phillip until top 3.

 Ive noticed that Jessica fans are saying people who vote for Phillip are just horny little girls or people who want a white person to win. But Phillip fans say people only voted for Jessica because of her nationality half Filipino half Mexican. My reason for voting for Jessica is that she has an amazing voice I’m not voting for her because she is half Asian and so am I. 

American idol was a popularity contest ever since… There are articles saying Jessica didn’t win because of her nationality. There is a possibility that true. But if you’re a Jessica fan. Even if she didn’t win just support her buy her album Don’t hate on Phillip… I’m positive Jessica will have a huge successful career ahead of her. And as for Phillip fans just show your support for him. Don’t hate on Jessica fans as well. Phillip will get a record deal and who knows it might be a huge hit.

PEOPLE WILL NOW EXPECT A LOT OF “MOMENT MOMENT” BCosz of what Jessica set in season 11. Hopefully there would be auditioners like JS so Season 12 would be exciting. But like Ross said,JS is like a lightning strike, a chance of once or twice only in a lifetime. Aren’t we soooo lucky!

Why is real winner not always American Idol winner, Believe Jessica said it herself, no one thought she was talented altho every week she sang, range, artists few have ever touched I thought were artists. Jessica go on make it big while some winners be One Hit wonders. Look back and see top finalists real winner. Will be waiting for their album purchase, records period. Jessica Sanchez awesome, unbelieveable, yet to see that talent on American Idol, Jessica real winner.

It’s nice that Phillip won, but seriously there are lots of singer-
song writers like him. Jessica on the other hand is a little
like a lightning strike. A voice like this happens only once or twice in a lifetime. I hope the people who will be managing her
career realize what they have, and make excellent song choices for her to record. I for one will be anxiously waiting to
purchase her first album.

Seriously? We’re still on this? Honestly, I’m happy that Phillip won. We need more male singers like him in the music industry today. But is he going to have a successful career? I’m not sure he will, but if he does, I wish him all the best. As for Jessica, she can sing but her voice is so generic. People are saying she is going to have a successful career, just because of her voice. Okay, but didn’t they say the exact same thing about Pia Toscano, another great singer, who was eliminated in the top four I believe last year? Oh and another thing. Why is everyone bringing up the race card? It really had nothing to do with race. Yes, AI is starting to become a popularity contest, but isn’t that how the music industry works when award shows come on? The reason why AI is becoming boring is because the public have gotten bored with it. 11 seasons? Seriously? Just end it now. As for voting, we all know their voting system is rigged, no surprise there. Besides, will we remember Jessica or Phillip in five years? I highly doubt it.

Excuse me? Who are you? You sound really pathetic and immature right now. Since when did Jessica “save” the ratings? As for singing, why would I want to sing? I’m perfectly fine with my life. I just gave constructive criticism on how the show is now and the winner. Only a few people sing like that? I bet there are a lot of people who sing like that who are struggling to make it in the music industry. I’m not hating on Jessica or Pia, I’m just saying that the public has heard those voices before. Sorry for being honest.

Philip who doesn’t even hit high note,original singer who seems to defecate all the time,one who sings with too much effort even to almost drawn his face into frawning everytime he sings, too much constipation I think that made him suffer stone disease,or he try to suppress his urine when he sings that made contact,left stones

Dont say something u dont control, the future is yet to come. You are not God. You’re trying to impress to be honest, but honestly wrong. Sorry, just reacting to your comments….and check the votes, if JS was not in the final 2, the show is going down the drain. You are the one pathetic, dont comment if you want others to react.

The only reason why I compared Jessica and Pia is because people spoke very highly of them, including the judges. I’m only speaking my mind and being realistic here. I could care less of the votes.I never said I was God and who am I trying to impress if I’m speaking my mind? I’m not trying to impress anyone. Jessica could have a hit here and there, but if I’m being honest right now, I don’t think people are going to remember her. The same thing goes for Phillip. People would still watch the show even if Jessica wasn’t in the top 2.

Pia Toscano got eliminated on Top 9 not Top 4. She got an album even though she finished 9th only! Jessica a generic? Talk about racism, you just don’t like her voice even if she sounds so much like Whitney Houston! Even Whitney’s daughter can’t sing like her mom fyi. I believe Philip can just sell 1 album, just like the other idol AI WGWG winners and then he’ll be dropped from the AI label coz he is the Generic! I think that the voting system was rigged, only 20M viewers generating 132.3M votes??? oh come on

Okay. Most of you need to really well. I never said I hated Jessica. I do like her voice and she is a great singer for someone her age. I just feel like I have heard her voice over a million times. I’m not being racist at all. I also said that Phillip might not have a successful career, just based of what I seen from his performances on AI. So, everyone needs to chill and calm the hell down.

people speak highly becoz they heard their voices. js vocal skills were crafted that way for a cause. Vox populi vox dei, when more people want someting than the other, that’s the real one picked by God. PP won not by this standard, the voting process is not right, it only shows people are still racist or immature voters…..

I am so sick of hearing that it’s all about race or a popularity contest with nothing but teenagers voting. I’m not a teenager and my husband and I both voted for Phillip. He’s a great artist and he does have a very good voice. He’s just a different kind of singer from Jessica. If it were about pure vocal talent alone, Joshua would have won. I think Phillip was the perfect person to win AI because he’s so humble and down to earth, and yes talented. He doesn’t care about becoming famous, he just wants to make music. The world needs more people like him. And if you want to talk about voices, Steven Tyler does not have a great voice and look how big Aerosmith is. Jessica and Joshua could have wiped the floor with Jennifer Lopez, but look how big she is. It’s not all about the voice people! Get over it!!

yeah, only the five white males in a row for the past five years are great artists that’s why they’ all won. Only white males are great artists, Is that right? You may not be aware of it, but most americans voted for them because they think these idols are great but subconsciously they chose them because they are caucasians. And voters who are mostly white people cannot see beyond skin color

So you’re saying that Jessica didn’t win coz she’s not humble and down to earth? Did you say that because Philip’s taste in clothes is downright shabby? Just because JS dresses fancy clothes you think she’s not humble and down to earth? What about the fact that Jessica said that she prays the rosary everyday. She even sang The Prayer on the finals. Doesn’t that qualify her as a good person? This AI contest eliminates those who sing any religious or God praising song. Remember Carly Smithson the Irish? She sang Jesus Christ Superstar as her last song. Hollie nearly got booted coz she sang Jesus take my wheel.

Not only that to think that she can sing like Whitney Houston is a travesty. The girl is full of herself Jlo tried to push another Latino on us.

Jessica believes that she lost because she tried to hard. that is her mind, and not the mind of 1,000,000 others. it is simply because teenage girls sit over the phone for hours voting for philip or a cute guy. her loss was not her fault. if she was a WGWG, she would probably win AL. i love american idol, but the voting on american idol is totaly screwed up. i think america should have the chance to vote, and then the judges should make the final decision. in the finale the judges should say their decision, and let that be it. philip has loads of talent, and waay more than Scotty Macreery and Lee Dwize put together. the thing is… AL is going to turn into a total disaster if a girl does not win in a couple of years. JUST MY OPINION. Jessica is just like Beyonce but a teeny version. check out JS youtube vids. SHE CAN DANCE

Joshua, Jessica and Philip are all Very Talented Artists.

The mechanics of AI in selecting the winner only partially considers Talent. The fact that the judges( the Fans- non expert Judges) who select the winner makes AI a Popularity Contest rather than a Talent Contest. The so-called Judges ( Jlo,Randy and Steven) just give their comments.

So there will always be doubt whether the AI winner, whoever may be, is the most talented one. So I think AI Producers should present the show as a Popularity Contest to set things straight.

i think they have always presented it that way. but somehow people keep getting stuck on this notion that it’s a singing competition… even randy, i suppose, has been stuck on this. it was never a “best singer” contest. ever. the singing just gets you through the door, and the rest is x-factor… britney spears- not a great singer… but an absolutely insanely popular figure- an idol. an idol is a worshipped figure- not worshipped b/c of deserving it. please, everyone, look up “idol”… well, excuse me, let me do it for you: “a. An image used as an object of worship. b. A false god. 2. One that is adored, often blindly or excessively. 3. Something visible but without substance.”

Once again, America embarrased herself by not being able to get a grasp on the “Best Singer” concept. At least Jessica’s and Joshua’s fans understood what AI was looking for. I thing that if this year’s competition would have taken place in another country, an actual singer would have won. Phillip is a trmendous artist and will do well, but come on! Lets call a spade a spade.

I agree with Joyce’s comment 200%. She wrote, “No. I think the reason that Jessica Sanchez lost American Idol was because so many little girls had a crush on Phillip Phillips. Him getting pity for having a bad kidney condition probably didn’t hurt his chances of winning either. They’re are both talented, but the truth is the truth”. I am glad someone here is knows the truth about AI contest. It also didn’t hurt that AI mentioned Philip works in a pawn shop. This is so endearing to people and won people’s hearts “From pawn shop worker to American Idol”. Wow! People love to support the underdog! What was not mentioned is that he works for his father’s pawn shop. That would have made a difference! I am a fan of Jessica and Philip. However, I voted for talent and it went to Jessica. I was mad when she did not win. However, the USA population in 2011 census is 311,591,917. There are 72.4% WHITE, 12.6% BLACK and only 4.8% Asian. In other words there are only 2.4 million Filipinos in America out of that 311,591,917 . And not all of these Filipinos voted or can vote for Jessica. How many millions of little girls or teenyboppers are there? 24% of this 311,591,917 population is between the age of 6 and 18. Do the math. Everyone should stop blaming the judges. If they had the last word, I believe they would have voted for Jessica. They wanted her to win but this is a popularity contest more than a talent contest. Yes they are both talented and unique artists. But in AI, the teenyboppers control who wins the title American Idol. We need to stop blaming the judges, Jimmy, etc. What AI needs to do is to change the voting rules. The judges should have the final and last say based on talent – just like the judges in Dancing With the Stars. I believe Randy, J-Lo and Steven would have voted for Jessica. Hands down! But the most important thing here is Jessica is happy with the result. Let’s all respect that and stop creating drama that she was robbed of the title, etc,etc. Let’s all move on because God has bigger plans for her. She will be a phenomenal star like no other!

i can’t for the life of me comprehend all of you people who think these race figures mean ANYTHING, if they’re even accurate. while i do believe that race-similarity can equate to a relatability that results in SOME votes, in some circumstances- it is of course not a one to one proposition. not to mention that you’ve thrown all asians together as if there is some sort of solidarity there when there are a lot of different asian groups, some of which are known to be very anti-other asians… same with latin groups, though you seem to have overlooked jessica’s 1/2 latin heritage. in any case… i will agree that she is a phenomenal singer who we will be hearing for quite some time. all the rest of this stuff is actually garbage and creating the very drama you purport to be condemning!
