Idol Season 11 Top 3

Idol Season 11 Top 3

Update: Jessica and Philip moves to the Finale! Woohoo! First time an Asian and a Filipina at that gets to the top 2 at AI! Good luck Jessica! You are the American Idol to all of us here.

Nursing a sore throat Jessica Sanchez sang three of the most difficult songs to sing on live television.  On top of that one song (I don’t wanna miss a thing) was originally sang by American Idol judge Steven Tyler himself.  Decide for yourself if she deserves to be on the finale.

Let’s start with Jennifer Lopez‘ choice.  I really liked her version of the famous Mariah Carey song.  Nothing forced or too much like most of the singers who try to take on a Mariah song.  She did a good job with the song putting a bit of the Jessica that we all loved.  She even sounded like Beyonce singing a Maria.

Jimmy’s choice, I’ll be there by the great Michael Jackson, was okay for me.  She sounded like Michael in some parts and a bit of Beyonce and Mariah.

The best song of the night for me was when she sang I don’t wanna miss a thing by Aerosmith.  A lot of the local singers here in the Philippines tried singing this song.  Don’t you think her version is similar to Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez‘s version of the song?  I still think that Jessica did put her own flavor to it but it just did sound like Regine’s.

I really think Jessica will move to the Finale and may even win this whole thing.  Let’s see and keep on voting you guys!  It’s time we have an Asian-American as the next Idol winner.

I didn’t like the song before but after watching her perform in AI she won me over.  This is also first time I’ve seen Jennifer Lopez perform with her new-found love so that’s a plus.  Here’s the video… enjoy!

So we are now down to 5 after Elise got booted out of the competition middle of this week.

The remaining American Idol contestants are:  Laine, Phillips, Jessica Sanchez, Hollie Cavanagh and Joshua.

BTW I think Elise wasn’t the weakest among last week.  I think she deserves to stay at least for 1 or 2 more weeks.  I think it should either be Hollie or Philip who should have been booted out.  Anyway for those who missed the show here’s a clip of Elise’s last performance.
