Jessica Sanchez Doesn’t Miss a Note Performing ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’ on ‘American Idol’
She wasn't really buttering up judge Steven Tyler with her choice, simply because he has no voting power and cannot determine her fate at this point. He can, however, sway viewers with his commentary. While he is often critical of those who perform his songs, he was blown away by the teen and how she handled herself and his song.
Sanchez once again delivered on her promise. She was able to hit all the notes, and the judges noted that she had some tough hills to climb by performing challenging songs. That's also known as "going for it," since she is on the cusp of winning the crown. Vocally, she had a big moment, but like we said previously, she is too technical and her performances lack a bit of heat. She doesn't quite move us yet.
The irony is the fact that this song came out in 1998 and Sanchez was born in 1995, so she was 3 years old when this song was a smash all over the radio.
Again, Jessica Sanchez can sing like nobody's business. But can she find that element of connection? That remains to be seen...
