Fellow Filipinos and Jessica Sanchez supporters, let us show our love and support to our kababayan Jessica Sanchez from elimination next week! The events that took place on the results night were shocking and let’s not make this same mistake happen ever again.
We are encouraging all Filipinos and Jessica Supporters in the USA to vote for her on performance night. Let’s not get overly complacent. We can all vote for her for free and let us get her to the Finals! She really deserves to win!
UPDATE: For the American Idol Finale (Jessica Sanchez vs Phillip Phillips), the show will be broadcasted on a Wednesday, May 23 (PH) instead of the usual Thursday. So voting will be on Wednesday here in the Philippines and the final results show will be on Thursday, May 24 in the Philippines.
Thursday May 23, 2012 WEDNESDAY (Philippines) 9 AM – 4 PM
JESSICA SANCHEZ NUMBERS: 18664365701, 18664365703, 18664365705 or 18664365707
1. Magic Jack, Vonage or NetTalk. If you have Magic Jack, Vonage or NetTalk phones in Pinas, you can vote for Jessica by dialing the toll free number that will be assigned to her after the American Idol show. Check the American Idol website or Jessica Sanchez facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jessica-Sanchez/51158140363 to find out the toll free number she got for that episode. You have 2 chances to vote: 9am-12noon and 1pm-4pm on Thursday Manila time. If you get busy tone (try at least twice to be sure) on the first time slot, that means your Magic Jack or NetTalk phone has a West Coast number, so trying dialing on the second time slot (1-3pm). You can vote as many times as you want via dial method. If you get a busy tone, it means the voting is closed.
2. Skype. If you don't have Magic Jack or Nettalk phone, you can also try dialing from your computer using Skype for free. If you got busy tone on the first time slot, try the second time slot. If you have Skype app on your smartphones, that should work too. Make sure to change the location to US in the dial pad.
3. Facebook. Vote online via the American Idol Facebook voting app. You may vote up to 50x per account.
4. Globe / TM. Toll-free numbers: DIAL 1280018664365701 OR 1280018664365703 1280018664365705 OR 1280018664365707
Bookmark and share this to your friends and let’s support her on performance night. I still strongly urge US folks to vote for Jessica.
UPDATE: (From American Idol mods on Official AI Forum)
Telescope has very sophisticated means to determine the origin of votes whether someone is using Skype or Magic Jack or proxies or any other means to try to get around the voting rules. Those votes are tossed.
You can vote ONLY if you're in the US and in your specified time zone.
People may believe their votes are going through, but they are not counted.
I say it’s still up to the people whether they decide to vote outside the US or not. After al, the methods to vote are all free!
NOTE: This will work from anywhere in the world, not just in in the Philippines. :) The procedure above was quoted from a comment on an ABS-CBN article by a reader called tron99.
