American Idol season 11 Top 6 includes Jessica Sanchez

I don’t watch American Idol season 11 regularly but weekly it’s in the news here because of Jessica Sanchez. She is a Filipino-Mexican and part of American idol season 11 top 6. Last time she’s been saved by the judges because they used “season save” this is to stay Jessica in the show after she garnered the lowest votes of that particular week. I think this power of the judges can only be used once through the whole season.   Image Detail

So after she garnered the lowest vote Filipino community in America asked for help to vote Jessica Sanchez to the next round. Even celebrities here in the Philippines and some tv shows are also asking Filipinos in America to vote for Jessica Sanchez.  So last Thursday (Philippines) the 7 finalists performed once again. Jessica Sanchez performed two songs; Fallin by Alicia Keys and Try a little Tenderness by Otis Redding and gladly it was well received by the judges.

Friday came (Philippines) and time to eliminate for another idol contestant and it’s surprising because Jessica Sanchez garnered second to the highest vote. This is happened because of the support of Filipino community in America. As a Filipino I am proud of her and hopefully we will see Jessica Sanchez all the way through the finals and hoping that she will be the first who has Filipino blood to win American Idol.  

Fil-Am Jessica Sanchez is part of American Idol Season 11 Top 13

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.
