Was Phillip the best singer in the contest?
Was he the best entertainer?
Obviously most of America thought so and so did I.
It just goes to show that everyone's tastes are different. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there that thought Jessica was robbed. But maybe you can be a little different, a little imperfect, and still succeed. There are lots of books out there that maybe aren't the best written but for some reason they have resonated with people.
I say just keep writing, learning your craft, and take advantage of the opportunities that might come up.
Have a good weekend.
I leave you with my favorite Phillip Phillips song.
