Jessica Sanchez Tonight
Published: May 11, 2012
Jessica Sanchez Tonight, â€śI really want to be in this competition. I put my whole heart and soul into that song,â€ť revealed 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez after we talked to her in the â€śAmerican Idolâ€ť press tent.
Dressed in a one-shoulder pink sleeve, blue top, and black mini-skirt, Jessica was now breaking into a smile as we interviewed her. She was almost in tears after her powerful performance of Jennifer Hollidayâ€™s â€śAnd Iâ€™m Telling You Iâ€™m Not Goingâ€ť which caused the judges â€“ Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler â€“ and the â€śAIâ€ť audience to give her a standing ovation.
â€śI love that song. I have been singing it since I was a little girl,â€ť she admitted. â€śI chose it because it meant a lot to me,â€ť she added. The petite humble girl from San Diego, California, confessed that after her harrowing experience of almost getting booted out if not for the judgesâ€™ using the one and only chance to save a contestant from leaving the top-rated reality competition, she became more determined to stay in the competition and do her best.
â€śRandy said I am like an old soul,â€ť she said. â€śI am secretly 65 years old,â€ť she joked.
Randy was so impressed with Jessicaâ€™s performance of that song that he said, â€śThis girl can sing the phonebook! You are really in it to win. That song has been sung so many times in this show but I just donâ€™t know where you get the experience and the phenomenal vocal chords.â€ť
Steven, on the other hand, said, â€śAnother winning performance!â€ť
Jennifer, for her part, was almost speechless. â€śI have nothing to say,â€ť she admitted. â€śThis is really crazy! Your vocal ability is amazing. You are crying because you have all these emotions when you sang. You are ripping your soul apart. This is a real moment.â€ť
Holliday, in her twitter account (@jennifersspot), called on her fans, followers, and friends to give their votes to the Mexican-Filipina singer.
â€śYes, I personally voted for Jessica tonight and also asked all my followers, friends and fans to vote for her!:-),â€ť Holliday said in her twitter account. (Manila Bulletin)
