On Thursday night’s elimination show, Jessica Sanchez was revealed as one of the final two contestants on Fox’s American Idol.
Week after week, the 16-year-old from Chula Vista, California has impressed both the viewers and judges alike with her big voice.
Throughout the 11th season of American Idol the half-Filipino half-Mexican songstress has belted out covers of some of the most powerful singers’ songs. Sanchez has showed her stuff singing songs by the late Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson, as well as Jennifer Holiday, AI alum Jennifer Hudson, and Luther Vandross.
Next week, Sanchez will go up against fellow finalist Phillip Phillips of Leesburg, Georgia and find out if she is the next American Idol.
