Where's the love for the ladies?!

While we definitely send our congratz to Phillip Phillips for his season 11 win, we can't help but wonder why Jessica didn't — especially with that PHENOMENAL voice of hers!

Had 16 year old Jessica Sanchez won American Idol last night, she would've been the FIRST girl to take the crown since Jordin Sparks did in 2007, at age 17!

If you haven't been keeping up this season, then you HAVE to check out the video (above) from last night's finale, of Jessica singing And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going with Jennifer Holliday! JENNIFER HOLLIDAY! We're blown away!!

American Idol Runner-Up REJECTED By America's Got Talent TWICE!

Awkward!

During last night's episode of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina dropped one hell of a knowledge bomb on fellow guest Piers Morgan when he complimented her vocal abilities, by informing him that she had tried out - and been REJECTED - twice from his competition, America's Got Talent!

Excellent! Such a well-deserved accomplishment!

X Factor contestant Rebecca Ferguson has reportedly been signed to Epic Records and is set to begin work on her debut album, over a month after becoming the runner-up in the reality competition!

Sources close to the singer have revealed that the album will feature a variety of tracks in the same vein as Duffy or Corinne Bailey Rae, which we think will suit her PERFECTLY!

Congratulations, bb!

We can't wait to hear what you produce!

You're going to absolutely KILL it!

Idol's Bowersox Outsells Winner Lee DeWyze

Another American Idol runner-up outsells the first place winner!

Despite coming in second place during AI's ninth season, Crystal Bowersox's debut album Farmer's Daughter posted higher sales during its first week than first place winner Lee Dewyze's debut, which hit stores in November.

Farmer's Daughter outsold almost 19,000 more units than DeWyze's Live It Up in its first week, selling 58,000 copies.

While the album did better than her fellow contestant's debut, sales were still weak compared to previous season's winners and runner-up contestants. Her album only ranked higher than first-season runner-up Justin Guaurini, which sold 57,000 copies and third-season runner-up, Diana Degarmo, which sold 47,000 copies.

Ouch.

Compared to runner-ups like Adam Lambert, who wold 198,000 copies of his album For Your Entertainment and second-season runner-up, Clay Aiken, who sold 613,000 copies of his album, Measure Of A Man, in its first week, Bowersox barely made a dent on the Billboard charts.

It doesn't seem like AI is really producing music idols anymore. Can the 10th season bring in another successful singer? What do U think?
