American Idol Finale: Jessica Sanchez Wins Round One Hands Down

May 23, 2012 01:33 PM by Lisa Princ

It all ends tonight, folks! The American Idol season 11 finale is only a few short hours away on the East Coast, and if you missed the awesome performances, check out our live blogging from last night for all the juicy details about what took place. We also have video footage of the first performances of the finale from both Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. After watching them both, you will probably agree that Jessica Sanchez won round one – hands down!

I know, I know, with the amount of tween and teen girls bogging down the American Idol phone lines last night, it’s probably safe to assume that Phillip Phillips will be crowned the winner tonight, but a girl can hope, right? We get it that Phillip is a hot, young, guy with a great voice, but Jessica is just as talented, and for the first time in many years, it would be damn nice to see a female win.

Phillip Phillips may have won the “winner” song round of the competition last night, but when Jessica came out belting I Have Nothing by the late Whitney Houston, she sealed the deal on that round.

Check out both of the performances below, and tell us what you think of them!

    That is it…I am through with American Idol. There is no way that Jessica did not win 1st place. This has to be fixed. Good luck next year becase Josh should have been choosen along with Jessica…Phillip could not have been a pimple on either of their two butts…PLEASE!!!! This is fixed and the panel must have been on drugs for all the kudos that they game Phillip. No problem…I will not watch the program going forward. It was because Jessica and Josh had such awesome voices from the begining that I hung in there…not next year or any other year going forward. I stopped when Clay lost to the bumb…and now I will just stop watching period!!!!

    Although they both deserved to win. I am happy with America’s final decision because Phillip is an amazing singer as long as Jessica and the est o the American Idol crew.
