Phillip Phillips Wins and Reba Sings on American Idol [Video]
Our American Idol expert, Steve Thompson, saw this coming weeks and weeks ago. His prediction, WGWG was going to win Season 11. And, you may be asking, what does "WGWG" mean. White guy with guitar! And Phillip Phillips, another Idol "white guy with guitar" has claimed the crown, defeating Jessica Sanchez in last night's Idol finale. If you missed the big moment, here it is . . . plus, some highlights from the final results show that include Reba McEntire, Fantasia wearing one of the worst outfits ever made, and a diva sing-off between Jessica Sanchez and a Broadway legend! Check it out . . .
Before Phillip was crowned, Idol rolled out its collection of special guests that included country music superstare Reba McEntire, who came to finale to sing with Skylar Laine, who finished 5th this season.
One of the strangest moments of the night came when 3rd place winner Joshua Ledet got to sing with Season 3 champion Fantasia. They sounded great, but what in the heck was Fantasia wearing????
And one of the biggest showstoppers of the night came from runner-up Jessica Sanchez who got to belt out "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" with Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday! This was CRAZY!
So, the 11th season of American Idol is in the books. And this morning on The WBKR Waking Crew, our Idol expert Steve Thompson phoned in his last report of the year! LISTEN!
Steve Thompson may be getting a break . . . but the Idol staff doesn't get much time to rest. Audition locations for Season 12 have already been announced and begin in June. Who will be the NEXT American Idol?
