Filipinos all over the world were disappointed with the result of the American Idol contest when Filipino-Mexican finalist Jessica Sanchez wasn’t declared the ultimate winner. Many thought she was once again a victim of racism because she doesn’ look American. It would be a great insult to America if a Filipino became the champion of the show.
Audience votes in American Idol eliminated one of its best performers and a juror favorite Joshua Ledet. Was it because he was black and gay?
Jessica was outvoted by white Georgia guitar-player Philip Phillips who I believe preformed better than Jessica on finals night. But Jessica’s duet with Jennifer Holiday brought the house down and was the best performance of the night.
I think Jessica is already considered a successful singer after the contest and the future has a lot in store for her.
