American Idol 2012 Jessica Sanchez blows everyone away during Top 12 performances, video below. After spending a week in the hospital, contestant Jessica Sanchez dominated the competition on American Idol during Wednesday night’s episode. Sanchez sang a spot-on rendition of Jennifer Hudson’s “Love You I Do” from the film “Dream Girls,” and received the only standing ovation of the night from the judges.
“I had to go to the doctor,” an emotional Sanchez told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest minutes before performing. “I’m worried about my song… my voice is horse and soar.” That comment got shocking reactions from the judges.
“I don’t know about no doctor,” said stunned Idol judge Randy Jackson. “What’s really happening [is] that girl can sing! One of the best in the two nights!” he added. “How old is she?! A voice to be reckoned with.”
“You’re beyond your years,” said a visibly satisfied Lopez. Steven Tyler concurred with Lopez. “They are going to have to pay you next time,” said Tyler.
