America Idol update: JESSICA SANCHEZ is SAFE and in Final 3! Hollie Cavanagh says goodbye
It's official! JESSICA SANCHEZ is in the Top 3!!!
Mexicans and Filipinos around the world must be rejoicing as our girl does the two countries proud.
On Wednesday, American Idol's final four performed California-themed songs and personal favorites they wished they'd written. According to the judges, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips hit it out of the park.
On the other hand, Hollie Cavanagh, who's perennially in the bottom on elimination nights, fell short on her second performance of Bonnie Raitt's classic "I Can't Make You Love Me."
So who's in the top three and heading home in style on a private jet for the annual hometown extravaganza this weekend? And who's just heading home? Keeping reading to find out ...
Jessica was the very first to be told that she is safe. Joshua followed right after and then, it came down to Phillip and Hollie.
"In years past we've had a few surprises at this stage in the game," host Ryan Seacrest said. "Think [Chris] Daughtry, remember that? Or [James] Durbin."
But that wasn't the case on Thursday: Phillip was declared safe and Hollie was told she was out.
As she sang her sang her swan song – Miley Cyrus's "The Climb" – her pal Joshua cried from his seat on the safe couch.
The top three will be heading home for their hero's welcome this weekend. Next week, they'll be back to perform for the judges and America's votes again.
There you go Philippines and Mexico! Finally, a representative that truly has an international sound that will surely be a huge artist someday! Go Jessica!!!
