Jessica Sanchez, now the only Asian left in American Idol 2012 Top 18

Jessica Sanchez is now just 6 weeks closer to the American Idol Season 11 (2012) finals after she was declared 'safe' during the show's Top 9 elimination.

American Idol 2012's latest episode Thursday, March 29 (Friday AM, Manila time) had South Korean Heejun Han being eliminated from the competition.

Heejun, who was an early favorite (but failed to sustain that), got the least number of votes this week, causing his elimination from the show.

In the Bottom 3 alongside Heejun were Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanagh. It was both the first time for Laine and Cavanagh to be part of the Bottom 3, while it was the 2nd (and the last) time for the Asian-American Heejun.

With that, Fil-Mexican Jessica Sanchez now becomes the only Asian left in American Idol 2012 Top 8. That's apart from being the only Latina and the youngest contestant of the season, at only 16.

The other finalists in the Top 8 are Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Elise Testone, Colton Dixon and DeAndre Brackensick.

On the next episode of American Idol 2012 this April 4, the Top 8 finalists will sing songs from the 80's. ©
