HOLLYWOOD - American Idol's Ryan "Peaches" Seacrest announced that 132 million votes had been cast for the two contestants on the 2012 American Idol finale that pitted Georgia's Phillip "The Grimacer" Phillips, 21, against Jessica "Itsy Bitsy" Sanchez, 16.
The American Idol finale proved to be a virtual "Circus of The Stars" as legendary music artists who appeared on the show included John Fogerty, lead singer with 60s and 70s icon band Creedence Clearwater Revival; Caribbean beauty Rihanna; the world renown Neil Diamond; Chaka Khan; Fantasia; Reba McEntire; and American Idol judges Jennifer "La Tush" Lopez; and Steven "Lips" Tyler who performed with his band Aerosmith.
The extremely popular country music artist and former American Idol winner Carrie "Sweet Thang" Underwood was in the audience but Seacrest failed to talk to her even though on two different occasions Carrie whispered out to him.
Word backstage at the Nokia Theater is that Ryan's girlfriend, the dazzling blonde Julianne Hough of Dancing With The Stars fame is a little bit jealous of the ravishing blonde signer from Oklahoma.
All of the top 12 contestants on this year's show were in the audience and also got up on stage and performed. Heejun Han still thinks that he is a comedian as he told several knock-knock jokes.
Country singer Skylar Laine seems to have really developed a lot more of a pronounced country twang and her voice actually sounds a lot like another American Idol alumni Kellie "Silly" Pickler.
Shannon "The Ladder" Magrane, who is reported to be close to 6-foot-8-inches tall is by far the tallest contestant male or female to ever appear on the show.
And the one-time favorite contestant of President Obama, "The First Mama," and "The First Kiddoes" Deandre "The Hair" Brackensick appears to have grown his hair even longer as it now just about reaches his belt.
