The search for the new American Idol season 11 is finally telecast on national television. I was watching the other day and happy because another Fil-Am (Filipino-Mexican) was chosen to be part of Top 13. She is Jessica Sanchez, 16 years old from San Diego, California.
Jessica Sanchez received a standing ovation from “American Idol” judges Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez. She performed her own version of Jennifer Hudson’s “Love You I Do” from the movie “Dream girls.”
I will surely watch American Idol again because of Jessica. Another Fil-Am who will give pride to our country. Other Filipino who had been part of American Idol were Jasmine Trias, whose made it on Top 3 (season 3), Thia Megia was part of the Top 11 in the previous season, Camille Velasco and Ramiele Malubay made it to the Top 9 on Season 3 and 7, respectively.
Good luck, Jessica, hope you recognize your mother’s homeland.
