Jessica Sanchez told 'just the voice is not going to do it' on 'American Idol'

Jessica Sanchez singing Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness" on "American Idol." As always, her vocal quality is top-notch, and she's totally in control of the song, doing tricky things with it.

Just not sure this is going to appeal to the masses; not a popular crowd-pleaser, not making me feel anything except admiration for her voice. Judges are beaming though, they appreciate it.

"Good God almighty, bless my soul, you've done it again!" says Steven Tyler.

Jennifer Lopez wants her to start pushing, going beyond the vocal ability and connecting with the audience more; "just the voice is not going to do it."

Randy Jackson agrees, tells her to focus on connecting with the emotion, the lyrics.
