Skylar Laine - Memorable Audition - AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 11

With a few list of white cute guys singing with their guitar, it seems that this ploy is still in trend after Phillip Phillips bagged the title as “American Idol”. As Ryan Seacrest has mentioned, setting in a new record in the AI history, Phillips garnered a total vote of 132 million last night (whoooaaaa…)

As we all know, both finalist have the talent or the vocals yet Phillip seems to be a lady magnet with his voice especially when he sings his winner’s song “Home”.

The announcement of winner was of course done after the usual powerful performances or shall we say “fillers” with the other American Idol season 11 contestants. Phillip showed his vocal power with John Fogerty as they sang r "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" and "Bad Moon Rising.” On the other hand, Jessica let the world hear her powerful voice with her beautiful rendition of "I Will Always Love You."

Other performances include a duet from Joshua Ledet and Fantasia Barrino, another duet from Skylar Laine and Reba McEntire. Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler with his Aerosmith band also participated while AI lovers and alumnus Diana DeGarmo from season 3 and Ace Young from season 5 made their wedding announcement (he proposed to her onstage).

And despite the fact that the show is running overtime for more than 2 minutes already, Phillip picked up his guitar once again and sang his winning song “Home”.
