According to a report at Philippine Star on Saturday, June 9, 2012, Renen de Guia of Ovation Productions confirmed to Funfare that the American Idol Season 11 Top 10 finalists will be performing at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on September 21, 2012.
Jessica Sanchez, who will sing the US national anthem before the Pacquiao vs Bradley match this Saturday, June 9 (Sunday, June 10 Manila time), won the hearts of millions of American Idol fans despite losing from Phillip Phillips, who was declared the American Idol Season 11 winner.
Sanchez, 16, who recently met President Noynoy Aquino (PNoy) in Hilton Hotel, in Los Angeles Airport where one of the topics they discussed is her plan to visit the Philippines, sang the same song during the 2012 Memorial Day concert last month.
Meanwhile, Phillips, 21, who was rushed to the hospital after the Top 13 performance night due to kidney problem, reportedly underwent a kidney surgery last Wednesday, June 6, and is being expected to recover before the start of their American Idol Live Tour.
The rest of the American Idol 2012 Top 10 finalists to join the Manila concert are Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Elise Testone, Colton Dixon, DeAndre Brackensick, Heejun Han, and Erika Van Pelt.
