Akon, who recently guest mentored on Idol, says Sanchez is by far his favorite contestant this season. "I know I shouldn't be saying this, but I kind of want her to get voted off so I can sign her," Akon told E! News at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami.

"She's beyond the talent that's supposed to be there," the R&B star gushed. "I think she's overqualified, I really do."

"And she's only 16," Akon continued. "Like, I've been around a lot of superstars. I haven't seen anyone at that age sing like that."

Sanchez was actually almost voted off the show two weeks ago but was saved by the judges, who decided to use their once-per-season save. "[People] naturally assume that she's been voted for because she's so good," Akon said. "So they chose to vote for someone else to kind of even the balance and she's not getting the votes."

He's right; in a way she is overqualified for the show. Her biggest problem when the show is over for her will be deciding who to sign with, because she will have multiple offers coming in. Hopefully she gets the right team around her to ensure success.

we should all still vote hard for her since there is nothing wrong with being the best on the show. thumbsup.gif by the way Akon discovered Lady Gaga among others. thumbsup.gif

sometimes i just want her to be voted off 3rd place or like just be a runner up in the finale instead of winning fear.gif

because we all know the winner will immediately be signed with jimmy and as much as i love that, for sure the winner will get to sing that (sometimes horrendous) finale song and be the first single released. if jessica wins, she won't have that much control over her album. they have to make it fit the idol winner standards. if she doesn't win and jimmy still wants her, i fear for that too because look at what happened to pia sad.gif but if she signs with a different label/different people, who knows maybe she'll go the way she really wants to go and actually have a say in what kind of music she wants to produce plus there's no pressure on her to sell hard. happy.gif

but thats just me lol. of course despite everything, i still want her to win wub.gif

Akon has also signed T Pain to his label which is part of Interscope which is the label Jessica might end up signing with whether she wins or not.

and this is why I don't worry for her. She could leave this week and still be the most successful contestant from her season.

She will be the best singer to come out of this competition regardless of the result. However, it's pretty evident that she wants to win since this has been her dream so we should keep the votes coming in to make her happy. original.gif

Jimmy Iovine and interscope get first say on who they will sign, so if jessica doesnt win Jimmy and interscope have the first say if they want to sign her. Unless Jimmy and Akon do like a joint venture are something.

This is the first time Ive actually cared for a contestant to win and to make it big post AI, the first time I voted for a reality tv contestant too...ever. I wouldnt even text vote for some local NZ tv personality dancing for charity's sake. I am just stoked for what the future holds for her and to read news like this makes me so happy for her. She's gonna be huge, even if she doesnt win.
