Jessica Sanchez lost.

But it's okay! Things like this happen; people we root for do not win all the time. We don't hold a monopoly on the judgment of musical talent. Filipinos, like everybody else, are not entitled to winning a competition. For those who are raging or thinking about raging, don't.

Crack a few jokes about American Idol, entertain some far-fetched conspiracy theories about racial discrimination, we're all good with that. But I don't think Jessica's loss should affect our society as a whole. First, not everything is bad for Jessica; she has secured a musical career whether she wins or not. Second, we don't even know her personally. Lastly, don't we have more pressing matters to deal with like our politics and personal affairs?

Steadily, steadily, let go of what happened, ye who rage about American Idol. Steadily, steadily, let us go back to our daily lives.

  1. No! She was the avatar of Pinoy Pride, and now that she's lost this country is covered in nothing but shame and inferiority. Plus it was a conspiracy.
