Jessica Sanchez was mine, and millions of others favorite to win American Idol this year…but she’s ok with her loss to guitarist Phillip Phillips.
“When they announced that it was Phillip, I was so happy… that’s why I gave him a big hug and I was smiling the whole time. I was like ‘This fool is going to win and I love him so much,’” she said.
While the two have both worked incredibly hard to make it to the finals, Jessica says Phillip truly deserved this win.
“He deserved it. Like literally, he has worked harder than all of us. We’ve all been working hard, but he’s been having to deal with his health issues, with his kidneys, and I think he’s been through a lot more than us mentally and physically,” she said.
I still think that Jessica should have won. My pick was Joshua Ledet. I am pretty sure that both Joshua and Jessica will have long careers.
