Jessica is now part of Idol’s Top 3

Staying true to the vow she made in her memorable performance of “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going,” Jessica Sanchez is staying as she made it to the Top 3 of “American Idol” on Thursday night (Friday morning in Manila).

She is, however, going back to her home city of San Diego, when she makes her “hometown hero” appearance, a tradition for the show’s Top 3 contestants.

Sanchez has now matched the success of Filipino-American Jasmine Trias, who also made it to the Top 3 during the third season of the hit US TV show.

But unlike Trias, who drew negative comments from “Idol” fans after she outlasted R&B singer LaToya London to make the Top 3 — then judge Simon Cowell bluntly told the Hawaii-based teener that she had gone as far she could — Sanchez was not only expected to make the Top 3, TV critics are now predicting a finals showdown between the 16-year-old and judges favorite Joshua Ledet, who was also declared safe on Thursday.
