Jessica Sanchez is Filipino-American, and American Idol is a popular show here in the Philippines. She is already becoming a household name here.

I'm not sure is desperate is the right word, but I agree she definitely wants to have an all-girl final. Based on what I've seen so far it seems to me that the girls are more talented, tho last week they definitely had better material to work with.

I think a Cavanaugh-Sanchez final is quite possible based on what we've seen so far.

Still, we haven't really heard everything these contestants can show us. I want to hear more from Philip Phillips, for example. He seems pretty good so far IMO but so far he hasn't been really challenged so I'm not sure what he can or can't sing.

Songs from the year you were born. Idol has done this before. Here's a good example:

Are we ready for tonight's great show, everyone?

For those who haven't been following American Idol, here are a couple of favorite performances during the last couple of weeks so you can see what you're missing.

First, 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez sings Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You":



Then, here's Joshua Ledet singing "When a Man Loves a Woman":



IIRC tonight they will all be singing songs of Billy Joel.

She is amazing!!! Every one of her performances has been great, IMO. I loved her version of "Turn the Beat Around" last week, which the judges didn't like much.



Here's her performance last night. Incredible, and hard to imagine that she is only 16.

I agree that Jessica is great, but I think Hollie may be right behind her.

I don't get HeeJun or Deandre.

Heejun has a decent voice, but he needs to grow up and take it more seriously. Deandre is only still there because of the 13-year old girls voting, IMO.

Jessica would be my pick to win, but I'd like to see Elise continue. I think she's got a great voice for blues.

No argument here - Elise is similar to Haley (but different).

BTW, I thought Haley gave a nice performance last night. She has such a sultry voice.

I really have trouble understanding Heejun. IMO his voice is ok, but the bar is higher than his voice.

Jessica is my favorite too. She's very young and I hope she finds a way to add a little more of her own personal style to her songs. Jessica's voice is fantastic, she's adorable, and very likeable too.

Hey, how about that Haley last night? She looked and sounded great! Love her sassy attitude!

I would say my filter is, who would I pay to see sing in person. Maybe two, and only after they have a polished act. The rest are OK for weeknight reality TV entertainment.

Haley was great last night and was my fave from last year. She's hungry.
