Jessica Sanchez settles for second place despite an awesome performance in the American Idol finals
While some neighbors would say that Philip Phillips really had the charm and Jessica Sanchez did not, I say booo. Why, because to me as well as to those who were not fans of the Filipina Mexican, it isn’t fair to think that way. No, not even if we all know that showbiz is showbiz whether in America or the Philippines. Philip might have the complete package but I strongly believe that Jessica had more. Ok, I want to be biased here. First I am Pinoy and second, I love Jessica.
I wouldn’t be fair even to myself if I say that Jes won the talent search even if the judges and the people (who voted) clearly shows that Philip won the finals of American Idol 2012 finals. I believe that Philip had the talent the looks and the complete package but the same thing goes for me with Jessica.
It’s all about the fans in the end, the votes did it and there is nothing that anybody can do about it unless the counting of the votes had been turned upside down like a circus which to me had the slightest slimmest chance of pushing through in a U.S. program. No offense, I saw one fan who strongly urged and pushed for / demanded a recount and I believe it all will be useless. Philip Phillips won first place and that’s it. Jessica might have settled for second but she clearly had a brighter future than the man (on my own point of view).
