MANILA, Philippines -- Unlike their previous stops for their concert tour, "American Idol" runner-up Jessica Sanchez said she and her fellow finalists will be "professional" during their finale show in Manila.

"We're going to be professional about it, because in our last show we goofed around and it was such a big mess," Sanchez told music channel MYX.

Along with other top 10 finalists of the 11th season of "Idol," Sanchez has been on tour across North America for the annual concert series of the popular singing competition.

For their finale show, the "Idol" alumni will stage a concert at the Araneta Coliseum on Friday, September 21.

"Expect a lot of fun. It's our last show so we're going to go all out," the 17-year-old Filipina-Mexican-American singer said of the show.

"We're going to give the crowd what they want and treat everyone like family, and just have fun with everybody," she added.

Best known for her rendition of the Dreamgirls hit song "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" during her "Idol" stint, Sanchez has since earned a record deal with Interscope Records.

Along with her hit performances on the show, Sanchez is expected to perform "Fairy Tale," a track from her upcoming album.
