MANILA – Filipino-Mexican singer Jessica Sanchez covered Pitbull’s “Feel This Moment” during the finale of reality show “Dancing With The Stars” (DWTS) on Wednesday morning (Manila time).

Originally a duet between Pitbull and Chirstina Aguilera, Sanchez belted out the song while the highlights of the show’s Top 3 pairs were shown in the background.

Prior to her "DWTS" guesting, Sanchez also appeared on the hit American musical series “Glee” twice where she played the role of Frida Romero.

The "American Idol" Season 11 runner-up performed Zedd’s “Clarity” and Little Mix’s “Wings” during the season finale of “Glee.”

While she has numerous guestings, Sanchez is still busy promoting her newly released album “Me, You & the Music.” It debuted at No. 26 in the Billboard 200 chart, selling 14,000 copies on its first week.

Meanwhile, it was an "American Idol" reunion of sorts at the "DWTS" finale as country singer Kellie Pickler won the 16th season of the ABC hit show, winning over judges and TV audiences with her graceful style and high-jumping jives with partner and professional dancer Derek Hough.

Pickler first grabbed attention as a contestant on "American Idol" in 2006. She screeched and jumped up and down when she learned she had won.

"This is amazing! Oh, my God!" she exclaimed, before fellow finalist and NFL player Jacoby Jones hoisted her on his shoulders to celebrate.

Pickler beat out Jones, former Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, and Disney Channel star Zendaya, who goes by her first name. The show began with 12 celebrity contestants including singer Wynonna Judd and former Olympic skater Dorothy Hamill, who were paired with the show's professional dancers. -- With a report from Reuters
