The recording artist is looking forward to the contestant Jessica Sanchez to leave the show so he can snatch her up. At this point an time it seems as if the teenage has her career set in stone for her thanks to her number one fan.
Akon, who recently guest mentored on Idol, says Sanchez is by far his favourite contestant this season, telling Eonline.com,
“I know I shouldn’t be saying this, but I kind of want her to get voted off so I can sign her. She’s beyond the talent that’s supposed to be there. I think she’s overqualified, I really do.
“And she’s only 16. I’ve been around a lot of superstars. I haven’t seen anyone at that age sing like that.”
