Jessica Sanchez said in a U Stream chat today that she is dating DeAndre Brackensick. Hey, good for them. It's not like either of them is getting a record deal or a career out of being on Idol, so they might as well get something out of the deal. But who takes more time to get ready in the morning?

We did it, Worsters! 132 million votes were cast last night, and in the end, we helped the fifth straight white guy with a guitar win American Idol. It seemed daunting at the beginning of the season, but we succeeded yet again and helped make sure Pinoybot Jessica Sanchez was left in the loser's circle. Apparently the curse of Kristy Lee Cook is even stronger than we thought - her horse must be laughing his way through the glue factory.
The guy who chewed gum on stage. The guy who gave Ryan Seacrest bunny ears every chance he got. The guy who didn't care about the songs he picked. The guy who didn't listen to Tommy Hilfiger. The guy who sang the same way every single week. The guy who multiple times on stage said that he couldn't sing as well as everyone else. He is our American Idol. Yes, he is. And we helped him achieve that goal. The cherry on the cake is that he's going to miss a lot of the tour due to his health problems - the winner of season 11 won't even be on most of the tour! The tour's booking manager must be furious.
Check back next year, when we help #wgwg6 win the show. If you are a wgwg, you must try out for the show and we will make sure you win.
And make sure you bid on the official VFTW American Idol caricatures. Now that Phillip has won, his caricature is a real collector's item!
EDITED TO ADD: #wgwg5 is trending on Twitter in the US and White Guy With Guitar is trending Worldwide. The vocabulary we make up is taking over the world.
Tonight is our chance to make Phillip Phillips the fifth consecutive WGWG winner in a row on American Idol. Still not convinced you should vote for him? Here are five reasons why you should:
Special thanks to smarterthanpickler for this clever play on words.
Jessica Sanchez, as you know, has a huge following in the Philippines. Not only is she part Filipino-American, but her style of light, family-friendly pop ballads is very popular over there. We have a very special and rare opportunity to change the face of Pinoy pop by showing the Philippines that Phillip brings something new and different to the table. He can be like The Beatles of the Philippines, only Imelda Marcos is no longer there to kick him out of the country if he turns down an invitation to meet her.
Help the Philippines. Vote for Phillip.
VFTW has supported Phillip Phillips for 7 straight weeks (that's more than Sanjaya!) and he has crept his way to the top by appealing to the frauen. But Jessica Sanchez has inspired her fellow Filipinos to vote from oversees using Skype. Also, viewers are tiring of the typical #wgwg winner. So what do you think will happen next week? Can we help Phillip win or will Jessica win it all? Predict who will win (not who you want to win) and then leave a comment letting us know why.
