Fil-Am singer Thia Megia "moves up a notch" on American Idol, say judges

Thia Megia performs "Heatwave"


Filipino-American singer Thia Megia, 16, impressed the American Idol judges on Motown night yesterday. Veering away from her usual ballads, she sang the upbeat "Heatwave" by Martha and the Vandellas.

"I’m happy to see you move up a notch tonight with something different," Idol judge Randy Jackson told Megia. "You can really sing (but) you can take more vocal chances."  

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez said, "It was great to see you let loose like that. Wow! Who knew you had it in you? I didn’t... But now that we’re going there, I need you to dig even deeper each week."

Find out who gets eliminated this week on American Idol tonight at 6 p.m. on Star World.
