Congrats Phillip for winning American Idol. I feel so much hometown pride. Big, huge congrats to Jessica too. Jessica I wish I could give you a big hug. It could have gone either way. It was so evenly matched unlike any Idol finals ever. Neither of you was better than the other but you both were better than any Idol winner in a long, long time. I know that Jessica will go on to great fame and fortune. Make millions selling her songs and maybe become her generation’s Whitney Houston. Like Whitney, she has that charisma, star quality to be in the movies as well. Phil and Jess congrats to you both.
