Jessica Sanchez Channels Whitney on "I Will Always Love You," May Be "The One"

by at . Comments

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. In any case, listen to the nearly flawless performance and try to hold back the tears below ...

I think this girl is just fantastic!! Have you been to Youtube and listened to her sing The Greatest Love Of All, and her rehearsal for the National Anthem OMG!! But with this being said, I want to throw a name out there that is in this league that should be WAAAAY more "out there" then she is, "listen" no pun intended, to Charice. Thanks. By the way, listen to these girls sing Listen, thanks to Melanie Amaro (who is awesome herself) singing this song, it is now one of my favorite songs.

THIS IS & FAR MOST THE BEST PERFORMANCE BY ANYONE, that has ever sang Whitney Houston's " I Will Always Love You ". Hands down & AWESOME job Jessica.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
