Sanchez has left the crowd stuttering after last night’s performance on “American Idol.”
Jessica Sanchez took the stage sitting on a piano wearing diamond star earrings, heels that rival Jennifer Lopez’s. But it wasn’t her outfit that was so impressive, but her voice.
It’s not shock the petite teen has a dynamite voice but this week, the teen managed to wow the crowd and the judges once again with her performance of Jazmine Sullivan’s “Stuttering.”
“I ain’t usually lost for words, this has got to be a first, and I’m tryna find the reason why I’m stuttering, ” she sings. “Something funny’s happening, I’m in a place I’ve never been and there’s got to be a reason why I’m stuttering.”
“Every time you look my way, something in me feels so strange and I’m starting to think you are why I’m stuttering.”
“That was superb,” raved judge Randy Jackson. “What you did tonight for me is you set the bar really high.”
“Jessica, every time I hear you sing I forget where I am,” Judge Steven Tyler said. “But America doesn’t forget. You fish slay it every time.”
“That was really beautiful,” said judge Lopez but then suggested she take on more Josua-type performances.
Previously, Sanchez performed one of Beyonce’s famous songs but changed it by slowing it down a bit. It was an episode in which contestants were able to choose to perform their idol’s hits and for Sanchez it was Beyonce’s Sweet Dreams.
“You did a beautiful job on it,” said American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez. “If I was Beyonce and I was home and I heard that, I’d be like ‘I got to do that in my next concert, slow that one down.’”
Earlier in the competition Sanchez, wowed the audience and judges during the “guys vs. girls” performance round. Wearing a long blue gown, the 16-year-old singer took the stage and belted out the famous lyrics of late singer Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
”Jessica Sanchez is legit,” said Jackson. “I think you’re one of the best singers in this whole competition.”
