Finally, Jessica Sanchez is going to be one of the official contestants of American Idol for the Finals round.
She is the first Filipino citizen who makes it up to the finale of one of the popular reality television singing competition.
The results were revealed last Thursday night (Friday in Manila), a day after the nationwide vote following performance night where Sanchez sang Mariah Carey’s “My All”, Aerosmith’s “I Dont Want To Miss A Thing”, and The Jackson 5′s “I’ll Be There.”
Jessica earned the bows of the judges for almost all the songs except for “Idol” judge Randy Jackson’s review that Sanchez’s third performance lacked the “moment-moment.”
She is a 16-year old American of Filipino and Mexican descent who competed against Joshua Ledet and Philip Philips for the Final Top Two round.
The show’s finale will be held on May 23 where the new “American Idol” will be crowned.
