For her big duet-with-a-famous-person number during the “American Idol” Season 11 finale, finalist Jessica Sanchez got to take the stage with Jennifer Holliday and sing “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going,” which was one of Jessica’s best performances of the season.

Holliday is most famous for originating the role of Effie Melody in “Dream Girls” on Broadyway, which is the musical “And I’m Telling You” is from. She won a Tony for Best Actress for the show and also nabbed a Grammy for her recording of the song.

We thought Jessica and Jennifer stole the show in terms of performances at the “Idol” finale. It was pretty darn spectacular. What did you think, “Idol” fans?
