Finally, America has chosen its Idol for the 11th season.
It all boiled down to the dreamy-eyed country crooner Philip Philipps, and resident Mexican-Filipina diva Jessica Sanchez.
The whole country was in anticipation as we awaited the results. For the first time, a massive campaign to vote was on and everyone was tweeting ways on how we can vote for her – from Magic Jack numbers, facebook applications and a local telecom even offered free IDD calling abroad for Filipinos to vote.
But in the end, it turns out, for the fifth year in a row, a White Guy With Guitar (WGWG) has taken the crown.
Philip Phillips is the new American Idol!
Twitter and Facebook exploded with rants and comments from the Filipino community. But even if the vote has been decided, Jessica will always remain the idol in our hearts. 🙂

Congratulations as well to Philip Philipps for winning. Here’s my favorite moment of Philip:
