OK, let's be honest-everyone in Louisiana wanted Joshua Ledet to win "American Idol". The fact that he made it so far makes him a star in our eyes, AND he's free to pursue his dream without being tied down by a super long, super inclusive contract.

But tonight's the night for 21 year old Phillip Phillips or 16 year old Jessica Sanchez.

We're happy that country music will be represented tonight by the presence of Country Music Hall of Fame member Reba McEntire, and last year's American Idol Scotty McCreery. You can see the finale of Season 11 tonight on the FOX Network beginning at 7pm. Good luck to both Jessica and Phillip from all of us at 97.3 the DAWG!
