jessican sanchez idol 520 'American Idol': Jessica Sanchez, Jennifer Hudson, Syesha Mercado, Ashley Robles   who sang it best?Jessica Sanchez took on Whitney Houston’s biggest song in “I Will Always Love You” for the “American Idol” Top 13 performance night Wednesday (March 7). But is she the best Idol who sang the song?

Obviously, Whitney Houston’s version is the best ever and we shall not besmirch it by including it in our poll post. But what about the other Idols? Jennifer Hudson sang the song for the 2010 BET Honors – we didn’t include her 2012 Grammys version, since she was obviously fighting back tears and that’s kind of unfair.

Syesha Mercado sang a kind of Whitney-Dolly hybrid of the song back during “Idol” Season 7, while Ashley Robles sang “I Will Always Love You” for the “Idol” Season 11 auditions in San Diego.

And of course, Jessica performed it for the Season 11 Top 13. But whose version did you like the best? Vote now!
