So what if so-called “Pinoy” bet for the eleventh season of the famous American reality TV show “American Idol” didn’t win the crown as the 11th American Idol, anyway is Miss Jessica Sanchez, the so-called “Pinoy” bet for the reality show, a pure American to be idolized as the next American Idol? How the Filipinos were so day dreaming and out of reality, is Jessica Sanchez on the “Filipino Idol” contests that they should be dismayed because she didn’t won the title? How idiot.
More worst she was called “World Idol” by an online twitter something polls being her as the one who gets the most votes perpetrated by a wordpress blogger “The Ayson Chronicles : A Life Online” and her Filipino diehard fans as well as American fans go “gaga”, as the religious goes “gaga” on pop icon Lady Gaga’s Asian concert tour; what the heck is going on the people?
According to the result papers of mobs-labs.org which is the base of all the rumors that Miss Jessica Sanchez will be the next 11th American Idol or will be the winner of the 11th season : “..The analysis of the season finale is based on the data collected between the beginning of the show in the East at 8:00 P.M. EST and the end of the voting period in the west, at 4:00 A.M. EST. The histogram of Figure 5 has a twofold interpretation. If we consider the whole of our dataset, as we have done in the previous analysis, Jessica turns out to have been the most popular in Twitter in our time window. Henceforth, the analysis analysis used for the elimination shows lead us to predict that Jessica will be the winner of the show…”
Moreover to add to the craze of most Pinoys, they thought that these Twitter polls could really predict the real winner of American Idol, ahead of the production and management team of the reality US TV show “American Idol”, forgetting that the show is only about and centered only within the United States or the voting polls is only within the American and not outside the United States for it is as the title of the reality TV shows says “American Idol” not “World Idol”
According to the results presented by the mobs-lab.org, which generate the Twitter polls worldwide online, the real winner of the reality show is Indeed “Phillip” having the great number of the regional votes than Miss Jessica Sanchez if only within United States is to be considered since the show is indeed only for the Americans and not for the World to decide and partake.
“….However, there is an important caveat. As we pointed out before, Jessica is the only contestant that has a strong Twitter signal originating from outside of the U.S. (and in particular from the Philippines), with an increasing trend after the show on April 19. Given that the voting is restricted to the U.S. only, it is helpful to have a closer look at the data, and consider the subset of Tweets that come with geographical metadata. Although the geolocalized data are a much smaller subset of the total signal, this dataset allows us to provide the contestants’ standing restricted to the USA Twitter population…..
. In the US, Phillip appears to have the largest fanbase of the two contestants…… If the possibility of votes coming from abroad is discarded, using the available data, we could then claim that Phillip is going to be the winner of the 11th edition of American Idol….”
But to a resentful Vice President of the Philippines, Jejomar Binay, according to his tweet Jessica Sanchez is the real winner of the US reality TV show as if Jessica Sanchez is on a Worldwide contest which he willfully forget that the reality TV show is just only centered or within the territory of the United States or the votes to be casted upon is only within America.
“Hindi man pinalad si @JSanchezAI11 bilang American Idol, sa puso ng bawat Pilipino, siya pa rin ang nagwagi. Like other talented kababayans, she makes us proud to be Filipinos,”
In addition to that, some Philippine Senators goes out of sync of their brains saying that Jessica Sanchez should be hail on the upper pedestal for no Filipino has not yet done what she has done, as if she join a world contests, perchance only that the American Idol reality TV show is just famous around the world but that doesn’t mean it is already worldwide show that should be revered upon. What an American colonial mentality some Filipinos have. It is a crying shame that the Philippine dignitaries are the ones who felt dismay not understanding what the contest is all about.
“Jessica Sanchez should be congratulated and commended through this resolution for her personal feat that celebrates Filipino ancestry and echoes national pride,….. She was almost eliminated in the Top 7’s first week had it not been for the ‘judges’ save’ which was introduced in the eighth season, making her the first female and fourth finalist in the show’s history to be spared from elimination,”…said by Senator Manny Villar.
Senator Franklin Drilon also has to say about the result of the reality show and felt also dismay : “Sayang. Sana po nanalo, mahal siya ng buong bansa. Ganunpaman, sa palagay ko the future will be good to her given her talent and how I wished she won,”
Senator Gringo Honasan also felt dismay that Miss Jessica Sanchez should have won the reality TV show and said that the entire Philippine nation was greatly dismay about the final results of the reality TV show who is the real winner; and the senator just comfort the nation not to be so sad about what have happened to Miss Jessica Sanchez but the nation should be at least happy because she have shown that Filipinos could at least make it on a foreign contest and should think that Miss Jessica Sanchez have not lost her talent anyway; this he also comfort himself.
Furthermore, a fellow Bataeños of Miss Jessica Sanchez ( Miss Jessica Sanchez came from Bataan region of the Philippines) or a congressman or house representative of the region of Bataan, Rep. Albert Garcia of Bataan’s second district, filed a House Resolution congratulating and commending the “innate talent” and what Miss Jessica Sanchez has achieved on the currently concluded US Reality TV Show, ”American Idol” : House Resolution No. 2444,that will give honor to Miss Jessica Sanchez.
However, other Philippine solon filed another House Resolution that will commend and honor Miss Sanchez, the House Resolution (HR) No. 2425 filed by Bataan Rep. Herminia Roman that will give Miss Sanchez a honor; or it not might not cause confusion if the two House Resolution filed by two Bataan representatives are just the same or not or which is official or personal, well I don’t know perhaps it is just a craze and mania that they redundantly file the same House Resolution that aims to honor Miss Jessica Sanchez.
“Malaking karangalan si Jessica hindi lamang sa ating lalawigan kundi maging sa buong bansa, Lahat nalungkot pero at the same time we should be proud of her because she faced a stiff competition and yet she attained quite a feat, Her talent, humility, and passion has united Filipinos the world over and has given us another Filipino champion to emulate..”, said in a mixed emotions (gladness and dismay) by Bataan Rep. Albert Garcia of Bataan’s second district.
House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. certified that Miss Jessica Sanchez will be given honors that she deserved for she has given the Philippines a great honor abroad. “Hers is a great achievement; definitely we will honor her,”
Some solons indeed express commendations to her :
“Being second is an excellent feat for a very young lady. I’m sure that her future is already made because she is fantastically talented,” said by House Majority Leader Rep. Neptali Gonzales II (Mandaluyong)..
“Malaking karangalan na para sa Pilipinas ang narating ni Jessica. Congratulations sa kanya. Pero sa aking pagtingin mas magaling na mang-aawit si Jessica. Wala lang sa kanya ang home court advantage,” said by Negros Occidental Rep. Albee Benitez.
“Clearly mas magaling siya (Sanchez). Pangalawa, mas malaki ang silbi sa buong mundo kung si Jessica ang nanalo because she will inspire more people in Asia and Latin America. Sayang. But she’s clearly the bigger star now,” said by Marikina City Rep. Miro Quimbo.
However, Citizens’ Battle Against Corruption Rep. Sherwin Tugna could not believed that Miss Sanchez did not won over Phillip and express sadness : “Nakakalungkot man dahil second place si Jessica, ang buong sambayanan at lahing Pilipino ay very proud sa kanyang nakamit. She did the Filipino race very proud,”
But however, despite of the all dismay and consolation praises and commendation received by Miss Jessica Sanchez particularly on her mother homeland or home roots, the Philippines, she still felt no regrets about the result anyway according to her and call that protest about the result is not necessary for according to her Phillip deserve to be won and not her. She is happy about the result anyway despite her fellow Filipinos in the Philippines felt great dismay and sadness about the results that she did not won the US Reality TV show, American Idol.
“I don’t think it’s necessary. I think Phil deserves to win, I think it was all fair. They wouldn’t ever cheat or anything like that. I think it was completely fair.”
To wrapped up, most Filipinos are so ecstatic and emotional that sometimes they willfully forget that American Idol are just for Americans and not for Filipinos to receive the crown of “American Idol” because it is only for American. Miss Jessica Sanchez is not purely American to be honored to be American Idol for she has Filipino blood but however if the Americans themselves loves to hail a half-blood American to be their next American Idol, so it be.
