Notwithstanding a throat condition, American Idol survivor and finalist Jessica Sanchez sang 3 songs that got mixed reactions from the judges. She sang “My All” by Mariah Carey, “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith, and “I’ll Be There” by the Jackson 5. While the songs were warmly applauded and received, Idol judge Randy Jackson said he did not like her rendition of the Jackson song all that much because there was “never a ‘moment’ moment.” The song was chosen by Idol mentor and music executive Jimmy Lovine because it would appeal to older audiences but still show Sanchez’s youth. On the other hand, rock star Steven Tyler, one of the judges, and the original voice behind “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing,” stood up and applauded her. “You just took a great song and made it greater. Thank you,” he said. Jennifer Lopez, for her part, praised Sanchez’s rendition of “My All,” saying, “You did it in your own way.”
