Phillip Phillips Named New ‘American Idol’: Did America Get It Right?

After a consistent ride week after week as a top performer on American Idol, Phillip Phillips was crowned season 11 champion. A record-breaking 132 million votes were generated and revealed Phillips as the new Idol, beating out runner up, 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez.

After winning the trophy and title, Phillips was handed his guitar to sing his coronation song “Home.” At first looking unfazed by the announcement, the modest Phillips became overcome with emotion and broke down in a touching moment unable to sing another note.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We want to know, do you think voters picked the right American Idol? Tell us who you think deserves the title!

    Yes Phillips should of won…he’s unique, a song writer, musican. He’s different and better than most of the so called artist we have today…..GOOD LUCK PHILLIPS

    Jessica did not win because she is just a carbon copy…same standard voice…you need more than just a good voice. Also, she is much to you young has alot of growing up to do.

    Yes Phillip should of won. Can you imagine how good he would have been if he had not been sick the entire season. Phillip , Elise and Colton are the three I am waiing for their albums, The rest I would not be able to listen to an entire album or concert for. I am dating myself by saying album….
