American Idol May 23, 2012 Finale Results Winner, Who won 5/23/12?

The winner of American Idol 2012 will be revealed tonight  The moment many people have been waiting for is here! Who will win this season? Is it the musical artist or the big ole voice? The American Idol finale will air from 8pm to 10pm ET. It’s going to be a two-hour finale with lots of performances by different artists.

Last night, Jessica and Phillip took the stage three times. They performed Simon Fuller’s song picks during the first round, to which the judges thought Jessica won the round. In the second round, the top 2 finalists sang this season’s favorite performance. The comments on who the judges thought won the round was mixed. Steven thought Jessica took it again, JLo gave the round to Phil and Randy thought it’s a draw. In the third round is about the winner’s single. Jessica sang “Change Nothing” to which she got some not good feedback from the judges. However, Jessica explained that she chose the song since it was the most like a “winner”s song. Meanwhile, Phillip, who sang “Home” to which he got a standing ovation. The judges loved it as well as the audience, of course. Based from how the judges loved the song, Phillip clearly won round 3.

But who did America vote for to be this season’s winner? Based from the poll we’ve asked you to take, Jessica will win American Idol. Let’s find out tonight if you guys are correct.

Meanwhile, some of the performers tonight includes Aerosmith who will sing their new single “Legendary Child” and Rihanna who will sing “Where Have You Been”, her new single as well. Last season’s winner Scotty McCreery will make another appearance tonight plus there will be performance by the top 13 for sure. Also, Joshua Ledet will be performing with season 3 winner Fantasia while Jessica might have a duet with Jennifer Holliday and a duet with Kristin Chenoweth for a Donna Summer tribute tonight. Lots of performances to fill the two-hour show, but the people only want to know who wins.

Over 122 million votes were cast last year. Will it be more this year? Will the winner be Jessica or Phillip?

  1. phillip deserves it. !he shows originality obviously .jessica will have fame too .a true artist wouldnt have to b competative just to take a spot.they should believe in there selves regardless and not change

  2. HE WON BECAUSE HE IS WHITE, NOT BECAUSE HE IS VERY TALENTED…ANOTHER PROOF THAT RACIAL DISCRIMINATION STILL EXISTS IN AMERICA…TSK TSK TSK…AI LOST MILLIONS OF VOTERS & VIEWERS BECAUSE OF THIS!NO CREDIBILITY AS A “REAL TALENT SEARCH” SHOW!!!!!!

  3. How do you get that Phillip only won because he is white? Do you have statistics that validate this hypothesis of yours, or are you just pulling crap from your ass? Stop pulling the race card every time something doesn’t go your way. Not everything has racist intentions. Phillip won because America likes his folky indie style better than Jessica’s powerhouse, that’s that. Race has no part in it.

  4. OK PHILLIP WON, BUT IT DOES’NT MEAN THAT HE IS THAT TALENTED,BECAUSE HE IS NOT, HE CAN ONLY SING BUT NOT THAT GOOD.THAT’S A FACT. HE JUST WON BECAUSE OF THE VOTES BUT NOT BECAUSE HE IS THE BEST BETWEEN THE TWO,VOCALLY SPEAKING.YOU ALL KNOW THAT…ANYWAY, STILL VERY PROUD OF JESSICA..PEACE!

  5. I disagre….im happy Phillip won n either way I would be happy cos I think both is a great singer in their own way….but He won cos he had alot of fans NOT bcos of his voice is the best….ITS THE FANS who made him win

  6. Phillip never had a ‘big’ song. All his songs were lounge/poet club music, and every time he tried to hit high notes his face would always looks strained. I honestly don’t think this counts as talent. Really anyone could talk/sing songs. But like many other seasons of American Idol, the winner doesn’t always make it big. Sometimes it’s the runner up who does. I know I will be buying Jessica Sanchez’s album when it comes out!

  8. thanks phillip won….he is really good…he sings like
    Dave Matthew…..thanks all the shouting of Jessica
    ended….my ears have rested now……

  9. Yeah I’m glad Phillip won. The only reason Jessica was still in there is because the judges saved her a while back and then begged people to vote for her and give her support.

  10. I guess spasm boy won! I guess u don’t need talent to win.. Just stupid teeny boppers to vote! Oh well… We’ll see if those same mofos who voted for spasm boy would support and buy his album… Bwahahahahahah! It shouldn’t be called American idol!! American Idont! Coz I don’t give a flying phuck! This show is garbage! I hope they cancel this show!

  11. well i personally hate the way Phillip sings but i gotta respect him cause he’s older and cause he is a human being. But Jessica should have won and she will always be my favorite cause she represents the WEST COAST and cause of her excellent voice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
