American Idol 11 Top 7 Finalist
Filipino-American teenager Jessica Sanchez made it to the top 7 on “American Idol” last elimination round.

Sanchez impressed the judges again when she sang Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know?” for the show’s ‘80s night Thursday with Joshua Ledet.  It’s ‘80s night on American Idol Season 11. It’s not just solo performances.

The two powerhouse singers blew away the Idol triumviate of Jennifer Lopez, Steve Tyler and Randy Jackson.

              "I'm looking at them and thinking...final," "dream pairing." - - Jennifer Lopez

               “Did an amazing job,” --- Randy Jackson said for Jessica

               “Everything you do is beautiful.” - - Steven Tyler  told to Jessica 

The bottom 3 were DeAndre Brackensick , Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh.

Unfortunately, the 17-year-old eight placer DeAndre Brackensick was voted off by the viewers and the judges was unable to save him.

The American Idol 11 Top 7 finalists were the following: 

Jessica Sanchez
Phillip Phillips
Joshua Ledet
Colton Dixon
Skylar Laine
Hollie Cavanagh
Elise Testone

With Sanchez advancing to the Top 7, she has placed higher than fellow Filipino-American Ramiele Malubay, who finished 9th in 2007. The most successful finish by a singer with Philippine heritage is Jasmine Trias, who placed 3rd in 2004.
