American Idol

Candice Glover won "American Idol" Season 12 over Kree Harrison as Psy, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin performed.

Jessica Sanchez puts her twist on 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on 'American Idol'

Jessica Sanchez sings "Bohemian Rhapsody" as "American Idol" does Queen songs. She starts out slow and almost innocent, and it's being shown in black and white for some reason.

Color comes back with the chorus, as she starts rocking out. In total control, she shows some creativity in her interpretation. But not great, for me -- I keep waiting for another great moment from her since we know what she's capable of. Instead, I think she's been merely quite good the last few weeks.

"Rock isn't your forte," says Steven Tyler, but adds he still loves her. Jennifer Lopez was hoping she was going to have more energy and perform it better, but calls her vocals "beautiful."

"I actually loved it," says Randy Jackson, who liked her restraint, and advises her to watch some Tina Turner videos for inspiration on how to perform rock.
