    She’s a great singer. More power to you Jessica!

  • Ailen

    She really did a great job in American Idol. I wish her the best in her career. Hater trolls are the ones who are gross.

  • siennagold

    She’s a great singer and I wish her the best! She kinda looks like Pocahontas. :)

  • WHATEVAH

    Jessica will be successful because she’s really gifted with a powerful voice. She’s very young and will continue to improve.

  • PowersTerrence

    She’s a great singer. More power to you my co-worker’s aunt makes $72 every hour on the laptop. She has been without a job for 8 months but last month her pay was $15133 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this web site CashLazy.*com

    somebody better get her a proper stylist. her dress looks baggy on her and the hair accessory look bad. she has potential tho, she looked good on idol.

  • Adam

    Are you kidding me? There’s no problem with her hair and dress. She look great! She’s like this junior fashionista who have a good taste in fashion and definitely the best dressed Idol contestant through out the whole 11 season.

  • Heidi44o

    like Rhonda answered I am impressed that a single mom able to make $7091 in 1 month on the computer. did you look at this web site..OnlineCash5.Notlong.CoM

  • Anon

    Beautiful girl who is INSANELY talented. She will go a long way!

  • Dan

    She should have won on AI she was the best singer by far. Much better singer that Petter Philips, people say phillips is original, but he tries to copy Dave Matthews and Seattle guitar performers. He doesn’t have a voice only good looks. I think the judges declared him a winner because of his kidney problems, that to me sounds more like charity than fair singer judging.

  • Lita

    I honestly think Jessica was overlooked because of she is not that beautiful, that is so incredibly said and unfair.

  • Ben

    I wont be watching idol next season. The winner was the least talented singer in the competition and he won because he flirted with J-ho

  • WGWG

    She is ugly and has a big wide nose.

  • Kim

    DUH! those pictures are only the rehearsals! She’s beautiful! :) Get a life bro! :P

  • Kim

    @Lita:
    NAH! maybe because of her race! it’s crazy but true! that’s the history of american idol! they also did not let gay idol win! right?

  • pacoy

    @ColinG: You’re a valueless asshole… a lingering pain in the ass that your mother and father hates…. i pity you….

  • Kim

    @saskia:
    those pictures are the rehearsals! duh!

  • leiz

    RHINOPLASTY is much needed here…

  • Simon

    Adam lambert is gay and he won.

  • tina

    Jessica Sanchez is for real. And hello, she is just 16 to even be bothered with pieces of advice from us. She ought to listen to her parents. Jessica is still young and very impressionable. I hope nobody’s opinion would make her hate herself or change what is naturally her.

  • gaaaagaaa

    ADAM LAMBERT DID NOT WIN, HE WAS THE 2ND

  • KAY blood

    American idol needs to raise the age of entrance to at least 18 years of age. At 16 years old this girl doesn’t even know what genre she wants to sing, she is so young and immature and BTW, her voice isn’t all that great. America decided to get rid of her a few back but the judges “saved” her so why is everyone so surprised that she didn’t win the contest in the end?

  • Lisa

    Love Jessica soo much! Wish her the best career! I’ll be supporting this little diva <3

  • Lalalove

    She looks very mature for her age.

  • somali girl

    She’s ugly. What’s with the disgusting sideburns eew.

  • http://facebook paticia zaragoza

    Jessica is very beautiful. She’s an outstanding singer, She’s like persephone personified. Young, beautiful, and so vibrant.

  • http://facebook paticia zaragoza

  • lyn

    @Lita:

    What do you mean she’s not beautiful? are you blind?? she IS beautiful

  • Puerto Rican girl

  • ASHBROOK143

    @Puerto Rican girl: AS IF YOU LOOK DAZZLING BITCH! I BET YOU LOOK LIKE A BROWN SASQUATCH! YOU’RE JUST JEALOUS ABOUT HER TALENT. SUCH A LOOSER! GEEZ GET A LIFE!

  • Booger

    @leiz: @leiz:

    Yup. go get one soon before your small brain drops out from one of your nostrils.

  • Booger

    @leiz:

    Yup. better get one soon before your small brains drops out from one of your nostrils.

  • marcy

    Jessica reminds me of Jordin Sparks who was the american idol before. She has a good vocalist voice and she really is a good singer. Good luck Jessica we the Filipinos here in America will support all the way to the top.

  • marcy

    she is the best singer of this season of American idols.

  • chaari

    @ColinG:

    @WGWG:

    Your attitude makes you uglier

  • chaari

    @leiz:
    You’re a beauty expert and I am a psychiatrist – you need to see me.

  • chaari

    @KAY blood:

    Because that episode was rigged. The show was failing and they needed a controversy to boost interest in the show.

  • chaari

    @Puerto Rican girl:

    You need spelling lessons, dearie.

  • winner

    @ColinG:

    ….and your last name is? oh i see…moron!
