  1. To be fair PP is really good … but during the finale, Jes I believe is far better than he is.  Also, being a WGWG is an advantage for PP since day 1.  And it was not a surprise or shocker at all that he’ll ended up as the winner.  And during the finale, it is crystal clear that they want PP to win.  They really nailed down Jes, the final song that was given to her and the critique by the judges … wow, I have nothing to say.  And to top it all, the grandeur final number of PP was really damm good plus the standing O by the judges.  That sealed everything, the final verdict was given.

    Anyway, with the final songs, PP may have a better song as compared what Jes had, BUT Jes made the song beautiful … with that my hands down to Jes !!! Congrats to PP & Jes.  Hope both of you be successful with your respective careers …  Wish ko lang maiba na ang trend sa AI, it’s becoming boring, the WGWG always prevails.

  2. Next year another WGWG will win !!! Wanna bet?  

  3. di pa nagumpisa ang finals, winner ka na for us jessica because u made the whole industry overjoyed and happy

  4. Jessica,  great performance… heart stopping!  I think you sang better than jennifer holiday. haha

  5. 80 million Filipinos were not able to vote. But this is AI. not a place for those not living in America.


  7. With the nice winner song and production number with a band, it is already insinuated that even before the voting started that Phillip will win the AI title, considering the show is entitled “American Idol” so that there really is a slim chance that an Asian could win the title. But nonetheless, for sure, Jessica will have so many fat offers from various record producers, what with her so amazing voice and versatile talent!

    Record breaking number of votes but declining in TV ratings. AI is becoming a cliche. No wonder its losing viewers every year.

    PP name will just fade away in just a few months…believe me… All white guy winners where are they now?

    American still a racist.. after all, jessica has just been used up on this game. That’s why they didn’t make it as J and J in the finals; it’s already a strategy then.
