‘American Idol’ duo Jessica Sanchez, DeAndre Brackensick team up (video)

Jessica SanchezMrs. Carter: You can start saying “aww” now…

Earlier this summer, it was first confirmed that “American Idol” contestants Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick were dating while they were out on the summer tour together across the country. Now, they are taking their show on the road … at least as much as these two can considering the sort of gigs that are out there before the two release any individual music. As we have told you about for some time now, the reigning runner-up was set to perform in her hometown of San Diego over the weekend; what we did know was that her boyfriend was going to be alongside her to go along with it.

The video below features the two performing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and it is rather lovely in between her vocals and Brackensick performing on the ukulele in the background. It is definitely a new and exciting sound for Jessica, and it almost feels as though her boyfriend is incorporating some of his own reggae leanings into her music. This, in turn, only helps to differentiate herself even more as an artist than she has done so already … and we like it.

Jessica’s album will not be out until early next year, and for the time being it is still unclear as to whether or not DeAndre is going to be featured on it in any capacity. So long as the end result is like this, though, we would be rather pleased to see it happen.

What do you think about this performance, and do you want to see more of Jessica and DeAndre working together? Be sure to share some more of your thoughts below, and you can check out some more news on Jessica over at the link here.
