Jessica Sanchez vs. Phillip Phillips on the American Idol Finals!

Hollywood, CA — Here you have it folks! After a nationwide vote of over 90 million, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips will go head to head on the Season 11 finale of American Idol. Joshua Ledet was eliminated with the lowest number of votes.

Just the night before, Sanchez performed Mariah Carey’s “My All”, Aerosmith’s “I Dont Want To Miss A Thing”, and The Jackson 5?s “I’ll Be There.” With the exception of AI judge Randy Jackson’s “OK” comment on her last song, Sanchez received great reviews from all the judges.

16-year-old Sanchez, whose mother is a Filipina and father of Mexican heritage, is the youngest American Idol contestant to make it to the finale since David Archuleta. She is the only person of Filipino ancestry (or asian descent for that matter) to make it to the finals. Jasmine Trias, a Filipino-American from Hawaii made it to the top three on Season 3.

Congratulations, Jessica Sanchez!

The show’s finale is on May 23.  Watch it and vote, everyone!


  1. I comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on a
    site or if I have something to add to the conversation.
    It’s caused by the fire communicated in the article I looked at. And on this post Jessica Sanchez vs. Phillip Phillips on the American Idol Finals! | Filipino | Definitely Filipino™. I was excited enough to leave a comment 🙂 I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of these comments come across like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post.
