Filipino are ecstatic to see the result in few hours if the 16 year old Jessica Sanchez who’s mother is a Filipina from Bataan, Philippines will win the Season 11 American Idol.
The judges once used their right to save which is only once per season when she was put in a danger zone but now she is the Final and comepting with Phillip Philips or PP
who is vibrant and adjust the songs he chose to his own version. He’s good especially when “You got tonight” it was light and easy and to think he got a kidney problem during the show is amazing that he was able to perform at hs best.
It so funny to read all the comments in Facebook and the AI website both from the Americans and the Filipinos which sometimes fans are so irrational and so caught up in the heat of the contest. Sometimes I think the FIlipinos who really loves seing a filipino to win the American Idol floods all the videos of other contestants and sometimes speaking in tagalog which irritates the non filipinos as the thread is in English.
I like Jessica Sanchez because I like the way she sing it comes from the heart like this version of “I Don’t wanna miss a thing” some expect her to sing like Regine Velasquez who is known belter but I like Jessica’s rendition it’s more natural and to sing it in front of Steven Tyler was so amazing. A lot of non Filipinos or Americans don’t her as they say she is boring and don’t have any audience charisma like the other contestants. Maybe she just loves to sing and caught up in her emotions but the judges loves her and they say she’s a pro but of course everybody has different opinion and taste so we”ll see if she will go home tonight as the winner.
What ever is the outcome I believe that she will become big win or lost you made us proud as FIlipina Jessica Sanchez. Mabuhay.
