Phillip Phillips wins

 

Phillip Phillips won American Idol on Wednesday, becoming the fifth male singer in a row to take the title and a guaranteed recording contract.
The 21 year-old guitar player from Georgia, who brought an indie vibe to the top-rated TV contest, beat ballad singer Jessica Sanchez, 16, of California in the public vote. 'American Idol' host Ryan Seacrest said a world record 132 million votes were cast by phone, text and online for the two finalists.
The winner was announced at the end of a two-hour finale on Wednesday featuring performances by Rihanna, Neil Diamond, Reba McEntire as well as 'Idol' judge Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tylers band Aerosmith.
Phillips looked stunned as Seacrest announced his name, and could not finish his performance of his new single 'Home' as he fought back tears. His goofball humor and individual style earned him a large, young female fan base on 'Idol,' and he had never appeared in the bottom three in public votes during earlier stage of the Fox TV show.
The 'Idol' judges also raved over his singing at Tuesday nights performance show finale of what will now be his first single - a folk-rock ballad called 'Home.'
Phillips, who worked in his fathers pawn shop before auditioning for 'Idol' also won sympathy for a recurrent kidney problem that has plagued his health during the season.
Sanchez was praised in the contest for her big voice but sometimes faulted for lacking emotion. She was saved by the judges from elimination in April after placing in the bottom in the public vote, and the shows judges disliked her third song in Tuesday nights performance finale.
'American Idol' remains the most-watched show on U.S. television but public appetite for the contest and its winners is slipping after 11 years on the air and a slew of rival, months-long talent shows.

KARACHI: All our lives, we’ve been hearing our parents telling us to get off the computers and go outside.

Whether we agree or not, these habits gradually begin to affect our posture, resulting in severe back problems at an early age. One of the most realistic examples my father always ... Full Story
Music duo Daft Punk unmasked and preserved

NEW YORK: When sculptor Xavier Veilhan persuaded Daft Punk to come to his studio, the artist, in the words of one of the duo’s songs, got lucky. The ever-masked electronic musicians finally took off their helmets and offered a glimpse at their real faces. The result is a sculpture that shows Daft Punk bandmates Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter standing casually and gazing into the distance, their faces now obstructed only by sunglasses.
