American Idol 2012 runner-up Jessica Sanchez was understandably upset by her loss in this year’s finals, but she admires the perseverance of opponent Phillips Phillips, who battled a painful kidney condition throughout the competition.
One of Jessica Sanchez’s biggest disappointments was actually failing to win this year’s American Idol 2012 crown for the ladies. A guy has now been the American Idol winner for five years on a row.
American Idol 2012 winner Phillips Phillips has made Idol history by hitting 278,000 downloads of “Home” and debuting at No 2. on the Hot Digital Songs chart. “Home” had the second-best digital sales week for any Idol contestant, debuting just slightly lower than Kelly Clarkson‘s “My Life Would Suck Without You” with 280,000 downloads in 2009.
Phillip Phillips’ “Home” also nabbed the record for the most downloaded song after an American Idol finale, beating out David Cook‘s finale song “The Time of My Life” from season 7. “Home” was also the fourth highest debut of the year so far behind Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 and Katy Perry.
American Idol 2012 winner Phillip Phillips was reportedly scheduled for vital kidney surgery on Tuesday, but it looks like he will have to wait a little longer before he goes under the knife. According to the latest reports, the Phillip Phillips surgery has been postponed because the American Idol winner is suffering from a high fever.
Phillips Phillips suffers from a congenital kidney disorder that creates huge kidney stones that cannot be naturally passed out of the body. The American Idol 2012 winner had to go through eight prior surgeries to relieve the extremely painful buildup of kidney stones during his time on season 11. This latest surgery will reportedly be to do repair work on his right kidney, which has been ravaged by his condition.
On the American Idol 2012 results show tonight, after five months of grueling competition, an American Idol 2012 winner will finally be crowned. Who won American Idol 2012 all depends on your votes.
Will we finally have a female American Idol winner with Jessica Sanchez after four years of men dominating the finale?

Join us for our American Idol 2012 results show recap and find out with us who won American Idol 2012!
WARNING: AMERICAN IDOL 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD!
Please beware! This post contains American Idol 2012 spoilers for the final results show! Please STOP reading now if you do now want to know what happened and do not want to know who won American Idol 2012!
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.
Tonight on American Idol, it will finally come down to the last two contestants — Scotty McCreery versus Lauren Alaina. While it looks like the odds seem skewed in McCreery’s favor according to most of the predicitions out there, we all know that on American Idol you just never know who the hell will end up on top.
After the shocking eliminations of several top favorites this season against all reason, we’re left wondering why we should even try to predict the newest American Idol winner. This is a show where Taylor Hicks — bless him — should never have won and Adam Lambert lost out to that rather bland boy whose name we can never remember.
Still, it should be interesting to watch the final showdown between American Idol’s unlikely top two this season. I’d find it kind of fun if the little blond girl who nearly crawled into Steven Tyler’s lap during her first audition actually managed to stomp all over smirky country boy.
Then again, we haven’t seen a woman win American Idolsince 2007. And we’ve had some girls during those past years with pipes way bigger & better than Alaina’s.
I’ll be watching tonight but honestly it doesn’t really matter to me who wins this time around. James Durbin is the guy we’ll be buying records from at the end of the day. But that’s just me. What’s your opinion on who you think will take home the top prize in the American Idol resultsÂ — and who really should have?
American Idol winner Lee DeWyze will sing the national anthem during the NBA Finals on Sunday. DeWyze will perform in front of about 20,000 NBA fans at the Los Angeles Staples Center before game two of the L. A. Lakers/Boston Celtics battle.

After the NBA Finals, DeWyze will head out on the road with the rest of the American Idol top 10. The American Idols Live Tour kicks off July 1 in Auburn Hills, Michigan and runs through September 15.
