Sanchez now part of American Idol's Top 4

Filipino-Mexican-American singer Jessica Sanchez has survived another elimination and is now part of the Top 4 of the 11th season of American Idol.

Sanchez gained enough votes to land in the Top 4 while country singer Skylar Laine was voted out this week after landing at the bottom 2.

Laine was joined by Hollie Cavanagh in the bottom 2 but the latter will advance to the next level and will join Sanchez, Phillip Phillips and Joshua Ledet in the Top 4.

Sanchez received mixed reviews for her performances on Wednesday night (US time). She failed to impress American Idol judge Randy Jackson in her rendition of the song “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner.

"You took on probably the biggest dragon of the night... It didn't really quite sit with me," Jackson said.

But fellow Idol judge Jennifer Lopez said Sanchez looked so grown-up when she got on stage tonight that she forgot she is only 16 years old.

The Fil-Am singer’s performance of Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful” received lavish praises from all three judges. "This girl's in the top of the leaderboard right now," Jackson said.

"You, once again, showed America just how beautiful your voice is. You're going to be No. 1, girl," Steven Tyler added.
