Jessica Sanchez rocked out during a performance on American Idol Wednesday.
Performing the Queen hit “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Sanchez showed true versatility and range as she managed the highs and lows of the classic.
“You sounded beautiful singing the song. When it went into the rock part of it, it needed to have more of that rock performance,” said Jennifer Lopez. “The vocal was beautiful. Overall really great performance.”

While Jennifer Lopez found some fault in Sanchez’s performance, Randy Jackson thought it was among her best to date.
“You sang with no runs in that. So she really changed herself from what she naturally does,” said Jackson. “I thought it was great. One tip to you, when you sing rock, channel a little Tina Turner but, very nice. I loved it.”
“Bohemian Rhapsody” was just one of two solo performances Jessica Sanchez gave Wednesday. She later took the stage to perform “Dance With My Father” (Luther Vandross) and did very well.
Following several weeks of strong performances and that coveted save, will Jessica Sanchez make it into the top 5 ?
American Idol returns with the results show Thursday night at 8pm on FOX.
