American Idol 2012 Predictions: Who Will Win American Idol Season 11?

On the American Idol 2102 results show for the final two Wednesday night, almost anything could and probably will happen. Despite a majority of American Idol predictions leaning toward Phillip Phillips as the one who will take home the top prize, there is still a strong possibility Jessica Sanchez could walk away as the American Idol 2012 winner against the odds.

Let’s face it, the odds are not in favor of Jessica Sanchez as the winner of American Idol 2012. The American Idol winner for the past four years in a row has been a young, cute, white guy with a guitar. Obviously American voters (especially the all important cellphone toting tweens) love those handsome boys with the golden voices.

The last time a female was the one who won American Idol, it was Jordin Sparks way back in season 6. She actually managed to snare the win over the cute, white guy with a guitar in that season, but then again, Blake Lewis was more of a quirky dude than even Phillip Phillips. Let’s not forget the season before that obviously crazy talented Katherine McPhee lost out to TAYLOR HICKS. Nothing against Taylor, he seems nice and all (even if he has pretty much vanished from the face of the Earth), but really?

So, it has to be obvious at this point that the guys statistically bring in the votes to win way more often than the ladies on American Idol. Plus, on American Idol 2012, Phillip Phillips has never once been in the bottom three. Jessica Sanchez has not only been in the bottom, she would have been voted off weeks ago if the voters hadn’t used their precious save in a very overly dramatic gesture of shock and awe at sweet little Sanchez being ranked last by the voters.

In all honesty, if the American Idol 2012 winner is not in some way rigged (as some fans believe) by either the producers or the fans, I think the title is probably going to go to the cute boy once again. Thus my American Idol 2012 prediction for the winner this year is going to be Phillip Phillips. I’m not saying I am all that pleased about the thought personally. The male American Idol winners over the past 10 seasons of the show have mostly proven to be total duds when it comes to post-Idol success. It’s always the ladies who seem to truly excel when they leave the Idol stage.

However, the track record is just too strong and despite having a huge voice, Jessica Sanchez has consistently lacked the emotional depth to truly connect with some of her song choices and get under the skin of the audience. She is just 16-years-old after all! You can hardly truly sing about having your heart broken or your life in ruins at 16 with any real meaning behind it. That is not a slur against Jessica Sanchez or her talent, but she really does need to get some more life experience under her belt before she can truly do serious justice to something like a Whitney Houston song. Perfection without emotional depth does not a superstar make.

Before I sign off and say that is all there is, however, it is important to note that Jessica Sanchez is not without hope of still winning this thing. She has a huge international fan base and her American fan base is extremely dedicated. If some of her international fans did manage to find a way to sneak votes through, or Jessica’s American fans went totally nuts last night and recruited everyone they knew to vote… well, the tiny girl with the enormous voice could just prove my American Idol prediction for this year totally wrong in the end.

  1. I vote for Jessica last night She’s the winner bog time Jessica Sanchez
    new American Idol 2012

  2. If predictions are based on AI’s history, PP is clearly gonna win this thing.. Just so disappointing that we value less on pure talent.. But this season will prove you all wrong.. Do not underestimate Jessica’s fan base.. They went out with revenge in terms of voting after the week that she was saved.. Nothing can stop them now.. She is after all the power voice of AI this season..

  3. Too bad for philip, Jessica has International FANs! Not her fault!!!!!!!!  American Idol should’ve not let the show be broadcast internationally then.  And they should be very strict in their rules,  “ONLY AMERICANs CAN VOTE!” …. then i conclude, this show is still about RACE!!!!!!! Obviously, Jessica is half Mexican, half Filipina!

  4. second the motion… i wouldn’t be surprise if she lands 70% of the 132 million votes..

  5. Yes, but I don’t really care for his looks at all. I think he will win based on voice, after all, he has gallons of talent and little Jessica could not stand a chance against him. He is amazing, and if Jessica wins, America is screwed up in the head, and the eardrums!

  6. try to play change nothing( studio version) u gonna be addicted to play it again n again,,,love it:-)

  7. your name is onedirection and you want people to believe your opinion about quality voice?

  8. We’re jess’ uk fans. Hope america choose the right one to win. I hope colours , origin, race won’t matter. That WGWG prediction isn’t fair. We wish jessica goodluck. God is so good.

  9. I think Philip iz the winner! Or should be! No matter who wins thougj, I believe they both are gonna go out there and do great by making their records

  10. I am proud pilipino and was born here in the states with my parents who was in the NAVYthat serves this amazing country for over 35 years.. So I can understand where Jessica is coming from !!!! Good Luck HON and GOD BLESS YOU and Phillip !!! And take that trophy home !!!!!

  11. I think you’re screwed up in the head and the eardrums if you think Phillip can sing! Go clean your ears or get a better sound system…or do both before you come on here with that madness!!!

  12. Let’s hope this curse of WGWG is put to rest tonight! Let’s go Jessica 🙂

  13. di ko alam kung anong mga hurado meron ang american idol bakit ung 3rd song ni phillip 2mayo ang mga huradado san ang galing dun wala ako nakita na husay sa kanta nya iisa lang ang istilo ng kanta mula cmula hanggang huli nilalaglag nila c jessica dama ko wag ka pumunta jl sa pinas tae ka

  14. If  Phillip wins… American Idol is nothing  but a  popularity contest  and not a singing contest. That’s why there is X-Factor and The Voice to correct what is wrong in American Idol.  In X-factor and The voice , there is no racial descrimination, no WGWG, Judges are fair. They don’t give standing ovation to  contestant who sings  like karaoke (ex: PP).  Whatever happens tonight’s result. It’s obvious that the AI Producer, their mentor Jimmy I. and the judges are bias.  They encouraged America to sway their votes to PP.  Whatever happens tonight, My winner is still Jessica Sanchez and  I’m still hoping  that Jessica will win  the American Idol  2012 title.  

  15. Jessica to win because  she got the strong support from Philippines as well as a filipino international community.i am one of them from London.Congrats Jessica.

  16. They’re both have a great voice but I could still say that Jessica is more great than Philip.

  17. Hopefully Phillip wins but both of them will be forgotten in very little time. They both have amazing voices but can you really picture yourself buying their cd, they don’t reach very far and in the end the show and judges always make more money than the stars that are competing for their dreams… Good luck to both of them in this type of world.

  18. Jessica has the voice of an angel and if she doesn’t win, I will never watch American idol ever again.

    All these little teeny boppers just vote for pp based on his looks. He’s NOT that good. Joshua should of been up there with her.

  19. This is not about RACE – HELLOOOOOO?  So many people are enthralled with Jessica’s enormous talent, not her race. I am a
    white guy, and I cannot stand Phillip Phillips and his whiny off key voice, and his constant imitation of several singers who are already better than he is. If they are great and not having hits, who needs HIM? I have never seen a singer get so far by singing off key, and with no apparent power in his voice. This is Kelly Clarkson and Justin all over again. BTW, MOST of the American Idol men have failed, while many of the women have not.
    The women, including Jessica ( and how! ) are better singers.

  20. Is Randy Jackson tone deaf? Are they rigging this thing?
    Why is he all of a sudden praising PP when he sings off key and badly? He ruined “I’m Moving out” with his silly screaming and off key Bob Dylan imitation ( at least it wasn’t Dave Matthews this time ). Why do they want another failure of a guy singer?
    When you’re a great singer like Jessica, you don’t need gimmicks to win. When you have little talent, bring out the marching band.

  21. I also heard that TMZ found that the “save” used for Jessica was a fakeout. The producers wanted the Judges to use the save, and they used Jessica’s popularity to do it. So don’t assume she was really in the bottom 3.

  22. Phillips cannot even sing other genres. He sings only one type of music and cannot sing difficult songs which proves he is not a good singer.. Joshua and Jessica should have been the top 2, if voice and talent will be the basis not the votes. AI is not a contest for excellence, it is a popularity contest. 

  23. MY opinion is that one, I dont think Jessica even belongs in the final 2, and Two, Phillip has a unique voice and Jessica is just the girl voice ive heard so so so so so many tiiimes. I think its time for something new and Phillips’ voice is something new.

  24. Phillip is a tone deaf Dave Matthews knock off. He shouldn’t be in the top ten. He has had two note worthy performances all season. That’s all. I guess working in a pawn shop will get you used to selling other peoples crap. 


  26. definely it is jessica will win this contest.she represent not only america. she represent asia and latin countries.

  27. Not only can Phllip not sing, he sings with a cringed up and constipated face gasping for air!  just watch when he sings in slow motion it will even be more apparent.  As for jessica, she is more of a cover singer, which explains why when she has to sing her “would be song” if she wins, she is like….cant carry it.  When she sings, she kinda shout and growl….. i think tyler and joshua should hv been the 2 finalists. Among many reality shows, at the rate amercian idol is going, i think they should call it a day and shut down the show, it’s getting more and more boring with nothing wow to watch both from the contestants and ahh…the judges as well…the judges comments are like same old same old all the time… i think they need simon cowell back real bad

  28. I don’t think Philip is cute, and I hate his style of singing. Almost all his songs feel like same.

  29. not only can phillip not sing, he sings with a gasping for air, constipated face!  he may be a creative song writer, but singer? no! He has very limited singing capability.  As for Jessica, she has better vocals than phllip but ah…dont you think she sounds more like a cover singer each time she sings? and she tends to shout and growl to reach those notes…. my take is tyler and joshua should have been the 2 finalists as they are more versatile and both are blessed with good vocals.  oh well, i think should bring back simon to judge or they should just put the show to sleep and shut it down.  it’s gotten so boring to watch to the point of painful.

  30. what the F… are u saying sis? that jessica is not going to win this finale. surely she s the best there is on this season. the reason why the judges retained jessica for the competition because they love her creativity on how she deliver every song to the crowd and as well do the millions of fan who are voting for her. Its not everything on looks that u should count on….youuuuuu! simple u like philips coz u want him badly.hehehehe..enough..everything would turn out to the finale and thats JESSICA SANCHEZ..the new AMERICAN IDOL season 11

  31. They sound a LOT better than your crappy, not raspy voice can sing. Raspy is beautiful. Why do you think Phillip won if he’s bad? America sure agrees that Phillip is great.

  32. Obviously there is DESCRIMINATION here……VERY OBVIOUS……Americans cannot and will not be able to APPRECIATE voice and talent….ONLY LOOKS…..this was TOO OBVIOUS way back ADAM LAMBERTS’ season…..

  33. With all due respect to the great talent that is Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillps was the right choice! He IS an artist! He IS a musician! He IS the best! He IS THE American Idol….and if more singers in the industry had his ideals, his morals, his humility and his care for his fellow human being, the industry would be MUCH better off. Phillip Phillips IS an IDOL! Hopefully he can make a litle difference in the music world. I predict he will be a super star! P2 is OUR AMERICAN IDOL!!

  34. If you vote wisely it should be jessica the “American Idol 2012 winner”.

  35. “I think its time for something new and Phillips’ voice is something new.” 

    Dave Matthews disagrees with you. In fact he wants his act back, including his facial expressions.
    Phillip is the antithesis of unique. And he’s tone deaf.
