American Idol: Jessica Sanchez Elimination Saved
Thursday night’s American Idol elimination episode proved to be the most dramatic of the season so far with Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson all rushing on stage to save the eliminated contestant. The trio was outraged when host Ryan Seacrest revealed Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone and Joshua Ledet were the bottom three with the least amount of viewer votes.
"I've never seen this happen. This is a ridiculous bottom three ... [America] got it wrong tonight, so wrong,” Jackson said.
Ledet was sent to safety first. He was followed by Testone, leaving Sanchez to sing one last time. Lopez, Tyler and Jackson interrupted her final performance by rushing on stage to announce they had decided to use their one and only judge’s save to keep her in the competition.
“Gimme that mic! This is crazy ... you ain't going home! Go sit down!" Lopez said.
“We are saving Jessica without any doubt," said Jackson.
"This girl is one of the best singers in America, ever," Jackson added. “Please vote for the best.... It's about finding the best. I mean, come on.”
Sanchez humbly accepted the save. “I don't expect anything. I just do what I do. Whatever happens happens. I just want people to know I've been working hard my whole life,” she said.
