That American Idol thing worked out pretty well for Jessica Sanchez, huh?
The talented singer got a boyfriend out of it, fellow Season 10 contestant DeAndre Brackensick, and also confirmed a record deal this week, telling the crowd at the iHeartRadio American Idol tour stop in New York City Wednesday night that she is signed to Interscope Records.
Sanchez also debuted the track “Fairytale.” Give it a listen now:

We’ve found her! The only female on the planet who did not vote Phillip Phillips for American Idol champion!
Granted, she’s like four years old.
It’s both hilarious and heart-breaking to watch her reaction to this week’s finale results. But it should at least be comforting to Fox executives – following a season where ratings tumbled – to know that at least some fans out there still care. A lot.
Watch poor little Laney’s reaction to the outcome now and start the hate mail campaign for the mother behind the camera, who seems to take pleasure in mocking her toddler’s pain:More >
But, moments prior to that celebration, Jessica Sanchez treated viewers to a lovely moment herself: expressing true pride and satisfaction when her opponent’s name was called.
“I really think that Phillip deserves to win and I’m so happy for him,” Sanchez told reporters after all was said and done, adding of Phillip: “He has his funny side and his humble side and he’s just an amazing, original artist.”
The same is true for Sanchez, who may haveMore >
Following a record 132 million votes cast, and following performances from Neil Diamond, Rihanna and Aerosmith, among others, American Idol crowned a season 11 champion tonight.
Was it ballad singer extraordinaire Jessica Sanchez? Or Dave Matthews prototype Phillip Phillips? Unlike Ryan Seacrest, we won’t keep you in suspense for very long. The winner is…
Not exactly a shocker, huh? The guitar-playing crooner was considered a favorite from his very first audition, considering his similar qualities to every other American Idol champion of the past five seasons.
One episode. Two finalists. Three songs.
Phillip Phillips squared off against Jessica Sanchez tonight, with the American Idol Season 11 crown at stake. Each contestant was tasked with singing a trio of tracks:
- Simon Fuller’s selections: Jessica Sanchez, “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston; Phillip Phillips, “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King
- A favorite from earlier in the season: Jessica Sanchez in no heels, “The Prayer” by Celine Dion; Phillip Phillips, “Movin’ Out” by Billy Joel
- A potential winning single: Jessica Sanchez, “Change Nothing;” Phillip Phillips, “Home”
So, who deserves theMore >
We’re down to two on American Idol. The final two. Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez.
One is a young white male who is easy on the eyes and plays the guitar. In other words: the same exact pedigree as the last four winners.
The other has a beautiful voice and hasn’t been afraid all year long of tacking such major artists as Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. She’s responsible for the single most memorable American Idol performance of the season.
Either would be a worthy champion. Only one will wear the crown next Thursday night.
Who do you want it to be?
I love you guys so much because you have the courage to have a dream.
That’s what Steven Tyler told the remaining three American Idol contestants tonight. Alas, for one of Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet, the dream is now over. So… following a painful Ice Age 3 tie-in and a performance by Adam Lambert, who got voted out of season 11?
The talented crooner takes it very well and even brings his mom on stage as he sings farewell via “Man’s Man’s Man’s World.”
This leaves Jessica Sanchez, likely the best voice of the season, and Phillip Phillips, theMore >
We are down to the final five.
With the elimination of Elise Testone this week, American Idol kicked off its home stretch on season 11, meaning this is an ideal time to line up the remaining contestants in a Power Poll and ask readers who they think will win.
5. Hollie Cavanaugh: She’s made a living in the bottom three for weeks now. A perfectly strong voice, deserving of a place in the top five, but next Thursday night should be it for her. Lacks a personality or anything distinct to go with the vocals.
4. Joshua Ledet: We rank him fourth, but wouldn’t object to him winning the wholeMore >
Seven finalists. 14 performances.
On last night’s American Idol, the remaining contestants sang a pair of tracks each: first, they covered a “Now” single from the year 2000 and beyond. Then, they went with a soul-based “Then” song, tackling artists such as Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. Relive the latter half of the evening below and then vote on your favorite…
Hollie Cavanagh for hour number-two started with “Son Of A Preacher Man,” one of our favorite singles from that era.
Up next, Colton Dixon went from Lady Gaga to Earth, Wine and Fire,More >
Jessica Sanchez sang Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” on American Idol this week, and with it, may have established herself as the Season 11 frontrunner.
Seriously. If Jessica Sanchez wasn’t in your Top 5 heading into Wednesday night, she is now. It was awesome, in one word. Don’t believe us? Take it from the panel:
Jennifer Lopez: [at a loss for words] “Just, just amazing.”
Randy Jackson: “This is one of the hardest songs to sing.”
Steven Tyler: “You may be The One. You just made 40 million people cry.”
LOL. Try 20 million at best, Steve … which is no small feat of course. InMore >
With the final 13 on American Idol announced last night, THG will be pairing off various contestants over the next few days to determine who readers believe is the early favorite.
First up, we pitted Phillip Phillips against Colton Dixon. Both talented, both appealing to a certain female demographic. Which of these remaining men has the best chance to take home the season 11 title?
Now, it’s the ladies’ turn. Both Hollie Cavanagh and Jessica Sanchez wowed the judges and the viewers during their semifinal performances. We’d give the early nod to Hollie, but we’re just one website. What doMore >
