Sanchez will continue in the competition and take the stage along with the other six finalists next week. On tonight's results show, AMERICAN IDOL Season Three finalist and Academy Award and Grammy Award winner Jennifer Hudson along with Ne-Yo performed their new single, "Think Like a Man," and AMERICAN IDOL Season 10 finalist James Durbin performed his new song, "Higher Than Heaven."

Next week, on Wednesday, April 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top Seven - Hollie Cavanagh, Colton Dixon, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone - return to the IDOL stage to perform for America's votes.

Tune in the following night, Thursday, April 19 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to find out which Top Seven finalist is sent home. In addition, LMFAO performs their smash hit, "Sorry For Party Rocking," and AMERICAN IDOL Season Eight winner Kris Allen performs his new single, "The Vision Of Love."
