REDWOOD CITY, California – After his “Three’s Company” concert with Ai-Ai Delas Alas and Pops Fernandez at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills on Saturday, singer Martin Nievera admitted that he has been trying to reach out to “American Idol” finalist Jessica Sanchez via Twitter.

“I think she could be the next American Idol. I’ve been trying to reach out through her on Twitter," he said. "All I know is I want to be able to tell her, give some tips, or pointers. But I’m sure she knows what she’s doing.”

Nievera also called on Pinoy audience members during their concert to vote for Sanchez.

“All you have to do is text. She’s very deserving, I think. The next American idol could be a Filipina. She’s proven herself already. She is awesome and we’re all behind Jessica,” Nievera told the crowd.

Nievera will be among the judges of the Philippine version of "The X Factor," together with Gary Valenciano and Charice.

Nievera said when he watches Sanchez perform on TV, he feels compelled to give her pointers to improve her performance.

“I watch her and I’m like, 'Oh sana you do this, to open her eyes more, to look at the audience, look at the judges look into the camera.' Her song can be communicated through the eyes because she’s got the voice,” he said.

“I would love to hook up (with her) if there’s a chance I can help in anyway. I don’t even want to come out on camera, I just want to help her,” Nievera added.
