Jessica Sanchez makes the finale at the expense of Joshua Ledet

It is official: for the first time in five years, my favorite contestant has made it to the finale. Jessica Sanchez, my favorite contestant of American Idol season 11 has made it to the finale, but at the expense of my second favorite Joshua Ledet, who was born in 1992 and hails from Westlake, Louisiana.

With 90 million votes cast by America, Sanchez is the first contestant saved by the judges to make it into the finale. Unfortunately, she will have to face that White guy with a guitar known as Phillip Phillips. In the last four seasons, American Idol has been won by White guys with guitars (WGWGs). I hope Sanchez breaks the WGWG winning streak once and for all. I am fed up with WGWGs winning the competition. Another reason is that last season, five female finalists were eliminated in a row during the first five rounds of the finals.

If Sanchez wins, she will be another Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. If Phillips wins, he will be another Taylor Hicks or Lee DeWyze. Choosing Phillips over Sanchez is like choosing sandpaper over velvet. It is like choosing wood over gold. It is like choosing junk food over healthy food. It is like choosing milk chocolate over dark chocolate. It is like choosing Chinese made goods over American made goods. It is like choosing monaural sound over 5.1 surround sound. It is like choosing standard definition over high definition. It is like choosing political correctness over common sense.
