As featured at Fox on Wednesday night, the remaining American Idol Season 11 Top 6 finalists sang two songs each; one is a song by Queen, where the original band members played with them, while the others song is choice of their own in Round 2.

Sanchez, 16, notably a frontrunner American Idol 2012 finalist, chose to sing “Dance With My Father” by Luther Vandross, which was said to be dedicated to her father, a US Navy veteran who will be deploying to Iraq soon.

Apparently, her rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody received mixed reactions from the judges but her performance of “Dance With My Father” received mostly good comments not only from the judges and fans, but from Richard Marx, who originally produced and co-wrote the said song.

“Hey @JSanchezAI11 Just watched you sing “Dance With My Father” online. Killer job! You did Luther and me proud. Good luck,” Richard Marx (@richardmarx) tweeted, who later tweeted that he misses Luther Vandross and posted a photo of the two of them together.

“I am just so amazed with the talent this year, you can all jump on the charts, you are truly amazing because you are so natural. Every time you sing, there is nothing wrong with it, absolutely nothing.” Randy Jackson told Jessica.

Jennifer Lopez told her; “That is probably the best way I have ever heard that song, it was beautiful.” Steven Tyler said; “I don’t think you could sing a song bad, you touch on Whitney but you have your own thing going on, thank you.”
