American Idol’s final episode aired on Wednesday, May 23, and it all come down to the Top 2 finalists, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips.

So, who became this year’s American Idol? Was it the girl who’s gotten early win predictions from Jimmy Iovine, judge Steven Tyler, and even the President of the Phillippines? Or was it the Southern guy who has managed to wail on his guitar and belt out tune after tune, all while muscling through some intensely painful health problems?

Jessica’s got the pipes, on-stage swagger, and a whole list of other winning qualities on her side, but Phillip’s got the tenacity, dreamboat-ness, and much more going for him as well.

In the end, America chose... (drumroll, please)... Phillip Phillips! Congratulations, Phillip!
