Not long after we first teased that Joshua Ledet was looking as though he will be performing with Fantasia Barrino on the “American Idol” finale Wednesday night, we now have another collaboration that has been all but confirmed — Jessica Sanchez with longtime “Dreamgirls” star Jennifer Holliday.
In a new post on Twitter, Holliday confirmed the news with the following message:
“@JSanchezAI11 GMorning SweetJESSICA!.MyHeart is filled wt”OverwhelmingJOY”!. It is “A MIRACLE from GOD” that U & I Will Meet & SING2Gether!”
With this news in mind, the only currently unconfirmed duet at the moment has to do with Phillip Phillips — but we hope that there will be some sort of star power to go along with it. Rihanna is currently the biggest name booked to appear on this season’s final episode, though reigning champ Scotty McCreery will also be stopping by to help crown the new winner.
So is this pretty much confirmation that the two will be singing “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” later this week? Maybe, but “Idol” has at least pulled some fast ones on us before.
What do you think about Jessica and Jennifer singing together?
