Jessica Sanchez performs “Fallin’” by Alicia Keys at the Top 7 redux performance show.
Laura Pudrom of the Huffington Post called Sanchez’ rendition of Fallin’ overplayed, but showed the “purity of her tone, her enviable control and the sultry depths of her range.”
Rodney Ho thought “it was technically fine but she didn’t add anything new or interesting to a very well-worn song.”
American singer-songwriter Jesse McCartney went gaga over Jessica Sanchez after he saw the young singer perform on “American Idol.”
“Just turned on American Idol! Whoaaaaa!!! Who is this Jessica Sanchez??? She’s got my VOTE!!! For real! She’s unbelievable!!!” he said.
