Jessica Sanchez, the now-famous 16 year old with Filipino lineage (yes, her mom’s a Filipina) is our best bet for American Idol 2012 Season 11. We love, love her inspired rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You.’ Whitney may now have a successor, and she’s soaring high.
Praise for Jessica Sanchez:
“Just amazing. I don’t even know what to say,” said AI judge Jennifer Lopez.
“Jessica, you may be the one. You just made 40 million people cry,” added Steven Tyler.
Asked who will make it to the Top 2 among the 13 finalists in the season’s American Idol, Tyler said: “Jessica Sanchez and Jessica Sanchez.”
Meanwhile, Randy Jackson was generous in uttering an OMG. “This is one of the hardest songs in the world to sing. You, not only are the best vocal of the night, I think you’re one of the best singers in this whole competition.”
We think Jessica got it all nailed and it’s just a matter of time before she’s declared a champion. Let’s drink to that! 🙂
