Jessica Sanchez and Ne-Yo stopped by American Idol this week to perform their new single, “Tonight.” You may remember that I reviewed an underwater recording of “Tonight” a couple of weeks ago, but now we finally have the song in high quality. And it’s a total smash.
Performing an uptempo dance track live for the first time can be a daunting task, even for a major pop girl, so I was anxious to see how Jessica would handle herself. Turns out, I was silly to worry – Jessica has a killer voice and tons of live performance experience from her American Idol days. Aside from a couple minor lyrical flubs, she totally killed it.
“Tonight” is currently sitting at #173 on iTunes three days after the performance. There’s no official radio adds date yet, but I’m hoping that some stations will hop on board anyway. Watch the official music video below and then download the track on iTunes! You can also pre-order Jessica’s upcoming debut, “Me, You & the Music,” which features collaborations with Ester Dean, Toby Gad, Sia, Benny Benassi, Livvi Franc, and J.R. Rotem.
