It Turns Out That Filipinos From Anywhere In The World Can Vote For Jessica Sanchez Thru Facebook! (Updated)

Since we now live in a flat world according to Tomas Friedman, it turns out that Filipinos from anywhere in the world, including us here in the Philippines, can vote for American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez via Facebook!

Here's how:

1.  Go to the American Idol Online Voting Facebook App.

2.  Simply press GO TO APP and then ALLOW.

3.  According to my blogger friend salmoncat, she heard from The Morning Rush with Chico and Delamar that the voting window for Filipinos residing in the Philippines happens this coming Wednesday, May 23, from 9 to 11 AM.

However, when you go to the American Idol Website, online voting via Facebook is strictly for those within the Continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands which is perhaps one of the reasons why Patrick Villavencio of was led to write Voting for Jessica Outside the US Is Cheating? which received mixed comments, mostly exasperated ones, from Filipino netizens.

No matter what your stand is on this particular issue, we can't deny the fact that Filipinos around the globe are rooting for Jessica to win especially now that she is up against a clear favorite, Philip Phillips, who has never been on the bottom three during the entire season.

What I strongly believe is that even though Jessica doesn't become the next American Idol, her AI album will most certainly be a hit! I also won't be surprised to find out that record companies will be fighting their way after that to signing her up under their label.
