Another biased post but she's one of my following-though-not-fully-watching picks due to the fact she was on AGT back in 2006 (or at least I am pretty sure it was her).
So, if that is her, she would have been 10 years old. With this voice at 16, I can see where she performed previously as a child prodigy. You can also tell in her phrasing and breaths that she has had extensive coaching.
Make way Charice...you have competition! :teeth

I watched AI for the first time this season on Wednesday night. Jessica did a great job.

Ah, you wait for the top 12 (13). That's pretty smart. Better odds you won't lose a favorite quickly.
I'm sure Jessica will make it top 3. Whether she goes beyond that is up to personality. There are enough good voices this year and that isn't even always the criteria if you look at Idol history.
