In front of 7,000 fans inside the Nokia Theatre, Filipino-Mexican Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips performed for America’s votes. They did three songs each – Simon Fuller’s pick, the contestant’s pick, and their potential winner’s song.
Phillip won the coin toss and he chose to go second so Jessica performed first with Simon Fuller’s song pick for her – Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing. She killed it by going soft at the beginning then going full vocals from the middle up till the end with occasional growls that made the audience wild.
Watch Jessica Sanchez perform Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing in the video below.
