Jessica Sanchez and Colton Dixon vs. Regine, Ogie, Pops and Martin on Valentine's Day
Jessica Sanchez is in the country for a solo concert on Valentine's Day, February 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. With her is fellow American Idol Season 11 finalist Colton Dixon.
But despite the popularity she gained from the hit US singing reality show, concert observers are wondering if she can she fill up the Big Dome, which has a capacity of about 10,000 for concerts and if she can actually hold a full-length performance that normally runs for about an hour and a half considering that all her past performances in the US had been guest stints, which consisted of two or three songs at the most.
In fact she sang only three songs during the Idols concert at the Big Dome, although she also provided backing vocals in six production numbers.
Another drawback is that her Valentine concert coincides with dozens of other shows that were scheduled specially for that day when couples go out on dates. One of which is the much-talked about concert of the country's most celebrated concert performers like Regine Velasquez and husband Ogie Alcasid and ex-couple Pops Fernandez and Martin Nieverra in "Foursome" at SM Mall of Asia Arena.
But then again, she knows how decisive her coming show is, and her handlers are professional enough to require her to rehearse hard – even as the presence of Dixon as guest performer serves as an assurance that it would be an interesting concert.
