MANILA, Philippines - "American Idol" Season 11 finalist Jessica Sanchez likes Filipino singers Sarah Geronimo and international singing sensation Charice.

She also said she knows Filipino songs.

“I started singing when I was three years old ...I remember singing ‘Ikaw,’” Sanchez said in an interview aired on Sunday with "The Buzz" US-based correspondent Monet Lu.

Sanchez granted the interview after receiving her third standing ovation for her rendition of Billy Joel's "Everybody Has A Dream."

The "Idol" frontrunner said she really had fun singing the song, which also earned her praises from Joel.

“It was really fun. It was a great experience. The comments I got from the judges were really unexpected because the song choice was really hard for me, but I got the song that I was most comfortable with and you know, I just did what I did,” Sanchez said.
