America voted and they chose Phillip Phillips as the the new "American Idol."
The 21-year-old pawn shop worker from Georgia beat 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez of California to claim the title. There was a record 132 million votes cast in the finale.
Phillip is the show's eleventh winner and the fifth male to win in a row. His new single, "Home," will be released this week.
Jessica would have been the the youngest American Idol Winner had she one.
It will be interesting to see where her big voice will lead her
