Wednesday night (March 7) the remaining six girl contestants on American Idol paid tribute to the late great Whitney Houston, and Jessica Sanchez evoked a standing ovation from the judges with her performance of 'I Will Always Love You'. As Jessica finished  her amazing rendition of the song, an ecstatic Jennifer Lopez turned to the audience demanding that the already enthusiastic applause and cheers continue.

Randy Jackson started off the judges comments saying, "Jessica Sanchez is legit! This is what's it's really all about, finding the best talent in America, and America - this is one of the best talents in the whole country!"

Jennifer Lopez was left speechless and called Jessica's performance "Just, Just Amazing!"

Steven Tyler looked Jessica in the eye and said  "You may be the one.  You just made 40 million people cry."

Jessica Sanchez's mesmerizing stand out performance was one to remember, and Whitney Houston would be proud. And Jessica, after getting on stage and killing it like you did, we have the feeling that America will always love you!
