Jessica Sanchez was declared safe during the show's latest elimination round

MANILA, Philippines – And she continues with her American idol journey.

Jessica Sanchez, the 16-year-old Filipino-Mexican-American sensation on the reality singing contest, was declared safe during the show’s latest elimination Thursday, May 3 (Friday, May 4 in Manila).

She now moves on to the top 4 round of the hit show, along with fellow finalists Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips, and Hollie Cavanagh.

Eliminated from the competition was Skylar Laine.

Before she was declared safe, she was paired with Laine, and was critiqued by mentor Jimmy Iovine.

Sanchez’s performance of “You Are So Beautiful” was “just that – beautiful… It was magnificent,” he said.

On the other hand, like judge Randy Jackson, Iovine was not satisfied with the teenager’s performance of the Tina Turner staple “Proud Mary.”

Jennifer Lopez also praised Jessica once again, saying she just “sang beautifully” the previous night, but said her more sophisticated look might turn off some fans.

The night’s musical guests were “Idol” alumna Carrie Underwood and Coldplay. – Rappler.com
