'American Idol' Recap: Is Jessica Sanchez Poised To Win?

Jessica Sanchez American Idol

Even with swollen vocal chords, 15-year-old Jessica Sanchez seemed far superior to the other competition!

Jessica Sanchez is incredible. The 15-year-old singer was stronger than all the other top 12 females on American Idol Feb. 29, despite working with swollen vocal chords.

I don’t mean to compare every Filipino singer to my favorite — Charice — but I think she would be impressed by Jessica’s talent. Not only does she have amazing range, but Jessica has stage presence second to none. She’s been groomed for the stage her entire life and it shows.

Watch the performance below (keeping in mind she had some issues with her voice) and tell us what you think. Should Jessica make it to the top 13? Sound off below!

Jessica Sanchez is just half filipina, and a mexican father for sure she will get more votes from this 2 country. Her voice sound more of a Shakira, so I think she will sung a few song of Shakira. :)

Like Charice, Jessica was born to sing…and like Charice she has that star confidence because she knows she’s good….I don’t see any reason why she can’t win the title…if she doesn’t then it simply means America is not just ready for an Asian-American idol and that would be a sad thing….

Yeah, she’s awesome…very soulful and churchy for an asian girl…but her song choices have got to get better than this.

P.S. My favorite is Charice too.

pretty amazing. but, a good voice isn’t all it takes to win idol. she has to keep america interested with her song choices (and have her voice hold up for a long period of time), and fend off the rabid tweens voting for the cutest boy. so, she’s good, but we’ll see…
