Tapos na ang Season 11 ng American Idol pero hindi pa tapos ang pagtatanong ng mga supporter ni Jessica Sanchez tungkol sa resulta ng botohan.

Isang sulat na may petsa na May 25 para sa American Idol producer na si Nigel Lythgoe ang ipinadala ng mga opisyal ng Migrant Heritage Commission (MHC), Inc., isang non-profit at non-governmental organization na may opisina sa Washington D.C. sa Amerika.

Sinuportahan ng MHC ang Idol journey ni Jessica at sa sulat na pinirmahan ng mga executive directors na sina Arnedo Valera, Grace Valera-Jaramillo at Jesse Gatchalian, hinihiling nila sa producer ng singing competition na ilabas nito ang eksaktong bilang ng mga boto na natanggap ni Jessica at ng American Idol Season 11 winner na si Phillip Phillips.


THE LETTER. Ito ang nilalalman ng kanilang sulat:

"Congratulations on the successful season of the American Idol which has become a globally supported spectacle on television entertainment. We likewise congratulate the winner Phillip Phillips for winning the title this year.


"Our Washington, D.C.-based organization, the Migrant Heritage Commission (MHC), a non-profit organization that secures and promotes cultural diversity, has been actively involved in the voting for Filipina-Mexican contestant Jessica Sanchez, who ranked Number 2 in the contest. It was a remarkable feat which Ms. Sanchez has reached.

"In the spirit of transparency and public trust, we are earnestly seeking an explanation as to how the judging of the winners are arrived at.

"How those 132,000,000 votes cast were reached, and as to how many went to the individual singers.


"We do not want to be misconstrued as sour grapers, because we were supportive of Jessica Sanchez, but because we deserve to know the entire process, including the information as to how a board of auditors (if there is) conducts the tallying of scores.

"We hope that this letter would merit your due attention. Thank you so much."
