Thousands waited for hours at the Eastwood Mall in Libis just to catch a glimpse of the American Idol Finalists yesterday September 19, 2012. 5 of the 10 finalists showed up at a fan meet and greet: Heejun Han, Jessica Sanchez, De Andre Brackensick, Erika Van Pelt and Elise Testone. The Philippines is the only international destination for the AI tour.

Jessica Sanchez was able to hug and kiss her most loyal admirers. But it was Hee Jun Han who stole the show with his quips. After a fan gave him dried mangoes from Cebu, “He asked the crowd who wants a mango?! I can’t give this away I want this!” He also playfully asked Jessica: “If De Andre and I were floating at sea who would you save?.” He tried to imitate Jessica’s voice and said, “I would save Hee Jun” which made the crowd laugh.
