Jessica Sanchez "And I Am Telling You" performance gets a standing ovation

Jessica Sanchez has just made an epic performance tonight on American Idol Season 11.

On Wednesday night (Thursday AM MLA time), the Top 4 finalists of American Idol 2012 took the stage, each performing two songs again, and it's no doubt that Jessica Sanchez gave the best performances of the night.

Take note, "performances" because unlike in previous weeks, both of Jessica's performances this week were praise-worthy, with 1 of it could be her best ever on the show.

Jessica Sanchez's first song was "Steal Away" by Etta James, which was impressive, and then for her 2nd song, Jessica sang "And I Am Telling You (I'm Not Going)" by Jennifer Holliday which earned her a much-deserved standing ovation.

*Judges' Comments*
Steven: "Another winning performance!"
JLo: "It was a real moment. It feels like it's going to be a real race to the finish."
Randy: "You and Joshua (Ledet) are now in it to really win it. You slayed it.You are phenomenal!"

(It was Jessica Sanchez's moment, but Randy managed to include Joshua in his comment.)

"And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" is the same chart-topping song by Jennifer Hudson for the movie "Dreamgirls" in 2006, and the same song that made Charice a Youtube sensation.

And absolutely, it has just made Jessica Sanchez a deserving winner of American Idol 2012. ©
