Jessica, who is eyed by Pacquiao to sing the Philippine national anthem in one of his future fights, did powerhouse performances with Etta James' "Steal Away" and Jennifer Holliday's "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going", which gave her praises and a standing ovation for her second song from judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson.
Pacquiao is now in the United States to train for his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Welterweight boxing bout with undefeated American boxer Timothy Bradley on June 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On the red carpet premiere of GMA Films' much-acclaimed "The Road" in ArcLight Theater, Pacquiao was also present to support "Manny Many Prizes" co-host Rhian Ramos. Also present in the red carpet were other Kapuso stars Alden Richards, Derrick Monasterio, and Marvin Agustin and director Yam Laranas.
UPDATE: Manny Pacquiao wasn't able to watch American Idol's Top 4 Elimination Night but instead, prayed for Jessica Sanchez over dinner.
