American Idol alumna Jessica Sanchez delighted everyone when she graced Tonight with Boy Abunda in 2018. The Filipino-Mexican singer made her first TWBA guesting memorable by taking on the Fast Talk Challenge.
Jessica chose dogs over cats; and sneakers over high heels. Her favorite Filipino word is “mahal kita.” She loves the smell of flowers.
She went for Jennifer Lopez as her favorite American Idol judge. In a scale of 1 to 10, she rated herself 7 as a singer but a million as a girlfriend. But she was willing to give up true love for world peace.
If she had a song for her parents, it would have to be “I Will Always Love You.” For Jessica, the most beautiful place in the world is San Diego, her hometown. She said the last time she felt like a queen was on that day.
Jessica was born to a Filipino mother, Editha Bugay, who hails from Samal, Bataan. She became an American Idol sensation in 2012 and finished as a runner-up.
