Jessica Sanchez American Idol Season 11

Look Out Everyone. Jessica Sanchez Has Emerged As Another American Idol Contender.

Well, well, well – look who we have here. Another mystery contestant from American Idol 2012.

Like her fellow contestant, DeAndre Brackensick, Jessica Sanchez has received little air time over the last five weeks of American Idol Season 2012.

But, that is about to change. Earlier today, Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe, tweeted that this evening during American Idol’s two-hour Las Vegas auditions, Jessica, DeAndre and Candice (do not know this young lady either) will receive their long overdue screen time.


Jessica Sanchez certainly is a little bundle of joy. And to say that she can sing is an underestimation of her incredible musical abilities. She lives and breathes her music and is rhythmically and emotionally immersed in her performances.

Also, the resilience and breadth of her vocal range is extraordinary.

Need convincing? Watch the videos that bookend this blog topic. Jessica performs two distinctly different songs, which tells me that she will seamlessly navigate her way through all the theme nights should she be fortunate enough to make the Top 12.

  1. I don’t mind them holding back a little bit on possible front runners, but give us a teeny bit of a teaser! Personality? A note or two???

  2. This young lady has talent to spare,what a great vocal gift! Both of those performances were stellar,but the second one,was amazing. I haven’t seen any spoiler lists yet,so I don’t know if she made the Top24,but if she didn’t then Idol really doesn’t deserve another season. I will definitely be watching this gal, even if she doesn’t make it on Idol,I’m sure someone in the music industry will notice, if they don’t they’re all blind and deaf!

  3. Vocab Mad, I think you will be seeing Jessica on the Idol concert tour. I can picture her in the TOP 3 already! She will give Idol a great boast and she already has a built in fan base. I remember Randy mentioning that their is a rapper on Idol this year. I was certainly surprised it turned out to be Jessica. I imagine she will find a way to fit it into a performance or two the way that Blake did. She has a great instrument as MCL has already mentioned!
