Jessica should have won, but it was obvious from the beginning (and previous winners) who would win. Phillip sounded the same to me all season long.
[QUOTE=gamer73;305759]Jessica should have won, but it was obvious from the beginning (and previous winners) who would win. Phillip sounded the same to me all season long.[/QUOTE] In all fairness, they both performed the same song with different words all season.
I really hope Kris Allen does not get dropped, even though I expect him to. The guy is awesome and I am buying his cd as soon as I get a chance.
Woohoo Phillip won!!!! so happy about that. Jessica has no personality and is extemely boring, she needed about a decade to get to know herself before she actually stepped out into the stoplight. Phillip kinda sucked, but out of the 2 he definitely deserved to win. Next season I'm hoping for some real talent, give me some more Elise's or Hollie's, and less Joshua's, Jessica's and Phillip's

Sorry but another white guy with guitar is going to win again making it 6 year in a row. I beat I can spot him during the auditions like I did with Phillip. Everyone else is fighting for second place.

I didnt say anything about a winner next year..... If you picked P2 for the win this year then why the hell are you so upset? tantrums are overrated my friend.

To me what was funny about your post is that I use to say the same things. Hoping for specific type of contestants, but it seems no matter the match up a wgwg will win. I'm just laughing about it now haha, this went from being my favorite show of my entire life, to just a comical reality show. Hopefully X Factor is good!

[QUOTE=Bella;305750]That would be a good argument.. except POST HOC ERGO PROPTER HOC is a fallacy. That means you can argue its happening because of that.. but it's false. Just because it's happening doesn't mean prior events have caused it. That argument is not sound. Personally, I voted for Heejun. <3[/QUOTE] That was my point. Just because huge record sales never materialized ([I]after this[/I]) does not mean ([I]therefore[/I]) that it was because the winner was a WGWG. ([I]because of this) [/I]which seemed to be the fallacious logic in the point I was responding to.
Yep, Jessica was robbed. I mean Phillip Phillips sucks man. I can't believe they voted for yet another white guy (no offense just calling it like I see it) to win the show. Shady man. After this season there does not need to be anymore male winners. [QUOTE=salt&vinegar;305741]) In all seriousness, it is the far superior show imo.[/QUOTE] I want what you're smoking. LMAO. No but for real, I like the British X-Factor better cause the US one is not good as of season 1. [QUOTE=gamer73;305759]Jessica should have won, but it was obvious from the beginning (and previous winners) who would win.

WGWG5 Awwww yeeeeaaaahh! What a terrible finale. Possibly even worse than the performance night. Did we really need 2 hours of that crap? I liked Rihanna, Skylar + Reba and the "Singing the Phone Book" segment but not much else. PP has accomplished the distinguished feat of being the only Top 24 contestant without a single performance I was able to sit through (Yes I even sat through a Taylor Hicks/Lee DeWyze song, once... I swear!). PP is going to bomb so hard. Like Producer88 said, you have to make a marketable pop-y album first to establish a foothold in the business before you can do your thing, and I don't think PP is capable of pulling anything like that off even if he was willing to compromise himself (He isn't. He didn't even really bother dressing up for the finale). J-Lo has jumped the shark so many times... I wish it'd just devour her already.

Phillip just announced "Home" isn't his first single, because it's too much of a pop record and he isn't that type of artist....******. Seriously this is what's wrong with wgwg winners and why they flop, becauss they don't listen to their lables & A&R's. Your first album or 2 needs to have pop songs, and what's sad is that "Home" isn't much of a pop record!! He said his album is going to be a mix of Rock-Jazz (WTF?!?!!?)...This is why he's going to flop. I can't wait in 2-3 years he's going to be irrelevant, and watch Jessica have at least a Top 10 hit with a song like "Umbrella" "Only Girl""No one" or "Irreplaceable"

[QUOTE=fabulous788;305757] On a sidenote, I'm sure Jessica will be that same person in a few years.[/QUOTE] Yeah right. [QUOTE=TSPKM2;305770]Woohoo Phillip won!!!! so happy about that.

And I mean that respectfully as well.

Hahaha she even looks scared in that picture. Ratings are down of course, cause everyone knew who was going to to win, the wgwg. I expect ratings to plummet next season (unless they get new judges). Show isn't fun anymore when everyone knows the winner.

Phillip will be successful; however it will not be through pop music like Jessica MAY be when she gets all of her big girl teeth.
Do you honestly think the girl that should have come in 7th place and still didn't win is going to be this huge star? She's no Daughtry, but if there were saves back then, he'd have easily won his season.

Glee has cornered the television inspired music market as evidenced by their insane string of top iTunes downloads. American Idol just isn't the powerhouse it was in that market--it wouldn't matter if the winner was a left-handed, red-headed lesbian Martian.
If I hear the term "white guy with guitar" one more time... someone is getting slapped. I'm serious. :new_shocked: :bottom:
Where Phillip and Jessica stand on the itunes charts has been posted. The winner always has many singles, but this is the least a second place person has had. [B]Philip Phillips iTunes Singles:[/B] #1 – Home 11 – We’ve Got Tonight 20 – Volcano 24 – Stand By Me 36 – Beggin’ 37 – Movin’ Out 52 – U Got It Bad 64 – Have You Ever Seen the Rain? 69 – Disease 89 – Fat Bottomed Girls 98 – Time of the Season 126 – Superstition 136 – The Stone 139 – That’s All 150 – Still Rainin’ 159 – In The Midnight Hour 173 – Give More 176 – The Letter 189 – Hard to Handle 253 – This Love [B]Jessica Sanchez iTunes Singles [/B] 107 – The Prayer 168 – Change Nothing 274 – I Will Always Love You 205 – I Have Nothing

[QUOTE=Bella;305889]It's stupid and it sounds racist.[/QUOTE] How does it sound racist? Many news sites like MTV, ABC, New York Times, etc. have been saying that the competition has been won by a white guy with a guitar 5 years in a row. Isn't the winner a white male, that plays guitar? I'm confused to how that's racist. We're no judging his race or ethnicity. I have no problem with the winners race! In fact if all 5 were the best of their season I wouldn't care, but the fact is that they didn't even deserve to reach the Top 5 of their season yet they won! (except David Cook, once again he's the only one that could make a case for himself that he deserved to win, because he was amazing in a lot of his performances).
