“It breaks my heart to see you go @Mknobilette – nothing but the best for you!”

The American Idol judges, Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. have opted not to use their save after M.K. Nobilette sang her save song “All of Me.”

American Idol Season 11 runner-up, Jessica Sanchez, performed with Judge Jennifer Lopez to the delight of their fans. Jessica Sanchez had also the support of the Filipino community during her stint as runner up in Season 11.
