It's Jessica and Phillip on American Idol Finale!

Filipino-Mexican-American singer Jessica Sanchez made history as the first finalist of American-Asian decent to reach the last round of America’s most popular TV show.

Joshua Ledet, who received another standing ovation from the judges on yesterday’s performance night, failed to make the cut. He garnered the lowest number of votes from "Idol" viewers, setting the stage for a showdown between Sanchez and Phillip Phillips.

Host Ryan Seacrest announced that they received over 90 million votes after Wednesday's show.

The tense results show saw performances from Lisa Marie Presley and former "Idol" contestant Adam Lambert. Seacrest called the contestants for the results, and announced that Sanchez made it to the finals, followed by Phillips.

Sanchez and Phillips will face each other in a sing-off on May 22. The results will be announced on May 23.

A win next week by the 16-year-old singer will make her the first female "Idol" since Jordin Sparks beat Blake Lewis in Season 6. She will also be the first "Idol" with Asian and Latino roots to win the title. More importantly, she will become the youngest "Idol" winner if she beats Phillips.
