Jessica Sanchez American Idol 2012

Pia Toscano told why she’s pulling for 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez to beat Phillip Phillips on ‘American Idol’ tomorrow night!

Girls have to stick together — especially on American Idol. Not since Jordin Sparks took the title in season six has a female singer won the competition, which is why former contestant Pia Toscano is pulling for Jessica Sanchez to win season 11.

“I want a girl to win!” Pia, 23, told exclusively at the Race To Erase MS event at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, Calif. “A girl hasn’t won in forever! I have been a fan of hers since I first saw her on America’s Got Talent.”

However, Pia isn’t just pulling for Jessica, 16, to win because she’s a chick. She loves her other qualities too.

“I think Jessica has a great chance because she is very relatable and so ahead of her years; I try to watch her and learn somethings from her,” she explained. “She has the whole thing down — from the fashion to the performance to everything, I think she is a very good role model.”

Do you agree with Pia? Should Jessica win American Idol? Sound off below!
