ROUND 2 – Jessica Sanchez performed ‘Try A Little Tenderness’ tonight on American Idol the Top 7. It is the same group as last week after the judges saved Jessica Sanchez with their only save last week. This week each contestant will be on the American Idol stage twice, the theme for this week is Now and Then. We are getting awfully close, can you imagine how much stress the contestants are feeling?
The “singers” had to pick a #1 hit song from 2000-2012 and then sing an older soul song. The mentor for tonight’s show is Jimmy Levine. In Round 1 she sang “Falling” by Alicia Keys.

Judges Comments: Jennifer said, “We got a little bit of your alter ego, after last week we really have to start pushing your performances, America has to connect with you because just the voice is not going to do it.” Steven said, “Good god almighty, bless my soul, you have done it again. Come on girl.” Randy said, “Absolutely correct, you just need to connect with the emotion in the lyrics, that is what the public responds to.”
