The 14-song mix is chock-full of inspirational pop, with powerful lady songs, including the 45-year-old Puerto Rican singer, actress and American Idol judge’s “Let’s Get Loud.”

Other power anthem’s include Katy Perry‘s “Roar,” Sara Bareilles‘ “Brave” and Kelly Clarkson‘s “Stronger.

Elsewhere, the playlist contains “Happy” and “Beautiful Day,” which all continue the themes she’s trying to push in her campaign.

“Let’s Get Loud,” a disco-salsa pop song about never giving up, appeared on J.Lo’s debut album On the 6, which was released in 1999. An accompanying music video was directed by Jeffrey Doe and filmed live at the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The track, co-written by Gloria Estefan and Kike Santander, charted on several charts around the world, reaching the top ten on five European countries.

Lopez earned her second consecutive nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording with the song.

Hernandez & Cabello’s “The X Factor” Journey Continues…

Ally Brooke (Hernandez) and Camila Cabello have plenty of reason to celebrate…

The Latina singers – members of FifthHarmony – gave a stronger performance on Wednesday’s The X Factor that not only helped them avoid having to sing for their lives… But the all-girl group’s performance of Kelly Clarkson’s “(What Doesn’t Kill You) Stronger, ” also gave them their best ranking in the competition as they advanced to the Top 6.

Taking the stage just hours after a death in the family on Wednesday night, the group rallied around Hernandez, who dedicated the group’s performance to her late grandfather.

L.A. Reid took time out to recognize Ally’s loss before reviewing their performance.

“First of all, I have to offer my sincere condolences to you (Ally). I’m really sorry for your loss,” Reid said before critiquing their performance of “Stronger.”

“I wanted ground breaking,” Reid said, claiming he didn’t hear enough harmony or an “original arrangement.”

Disagreeing with L.A. Reid, Britney Spears “thought the song really worked” for the group.

Demi Lovato agreed.

“I think that this was probably one of the best performances you guys have given,” said Lovato.

Excited for his group, Simon Cowell labeled the performance “fantastic.”

“This is an amazing, amazing song. What a fantastic performance you just gave. This is really, really important. I can see you on the charts. I can tell you Ally, your grandfather would be proud of you tonight.”

Following the elimination of Paige Thomas and Vino Alan, it was revealed during Thursday’s results show that Hernandez and Cabello’s group – coached by Simon Cowell – came in fourth place after the public’s vote.

Here are the remaining top six acts on this season of The X Factor:

6. Diamond White
5. CeCe Frey
4. Fifth Harmony
3. Emblem3
2. Tate Stevens
1. Carly Rose Sonenclar

Idol’s Sanchez Continues to Slay the Competition

It looks like there’s no stopping Jessica Sanchez

Once again, the petite 16-year-old part-Mexican American Idol finalist with the gigantic voice showed her maturity and sheer talent during last night’s songs-from-2010-and-beyond-themed show.

During her rehearsal of the song she’d tackle this week—Jazmine Sullivan’s “Stuttering”—music executive/producer and mentor Jimmy Iovine couldn’t help but marvel at Sanchez’s singing chops.

“That voice can move anything,” declared Iovine of the pint-sized singer who has already wowed America with her interpretations of songs like Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You, Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams and Billy Joel’s “Everybody Has a Dream.”  “She’s got soul, power, finesse. She is unbelievable with that voice!”

Meanwhile, guest judge Akon commented on Sanchez’s maturing, telling her “You’ve got so much control for that age!”

And, when it came time to take the stage, Sanchez didn’t disappoint…

Sitting atop a piano in a shimmering metallic dress, black leggings and black knee-high boots, the San Diego native delivered a moving interpretation of Sullivan’s rare track.

“That was superb, I mean that was like at the highest degree,” decreed AI judge Randy Jackson. “You did an amazing job!”

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez gushed about how beautifully Sanchez performed the song and encouraged her to take the American Idol audience and viewers at home on a journey every week.

“You have an amazing opportunity to take this audience… on a ride” said Lopez. “Take us on the ride every week; you can show us something we’ve never seen!”

Later, Sanchez returned to the stage wearing a shoulderless white blouse and pants with pink piping to  perform an energetic rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” as a trio with fellow finalists Joshua Ledet and Hollie Cavanagh.
