Jessica Sanchez more than impressed the judges on Wednesday’s American Idol with her cover of the Jimmy Iovine’s choice of song, Jackson 5’s “I’ll Be There.” Jennifer Lopez said the young singer even sounded like Michael Jackson himself in the beginning.

Earlier in the show, Sanchez got a standing ovation from Steven Tyler after she performed her chosen song of the Aerosmith hit “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing.” Sanchez also received raves for performing Mariah Carey’s “My All”, which was chosen by judge Jennifer Lopez.In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter after the show about “My All”, Sanchez said “I was scared of that song and nervous about the dynamics — going low and then getting all high. It’s a Mariah Carey song and I really wanted to pull it off so I was just trying to find the emotion in it. … And the judges seemed to like it, so yeah!”
