For ’80s week on “American Idol,” Jessica Sanchez tackled Whitney Houston, which would normally be a huge no-no, but since Jessica already pretty much slayed Whitney’s biggest hit, clearly she can climb that mountain again.

The song this time was “How Will I Know” and it was fun to see Jessica go with something uptempo. She definitely owned the stage like the little pint-sized diva that she is. Jennifer says, “You’re such a little girl, but there’s a woman up there at the same time … your vocals just make everything go away for me. I listen to you and I can’t believe those vocals are coming out of that little body.”

Randy adds, “You did an amazing job … I can’t believe the maturity in you.” For sure. Will Jessica be getting your votes tonight?
