Lovely Latinas Jessica Sanchez and Sara Ramirez had us glued to our TV sets last night!

On FOX's "American Idol," Sanchez and her fellow contestants Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips, anxiously awaited the results of America's votes to find out which of them would be headed into the "American Idol" finale next week. (We were equally anxious awaiting the results!)

After revealing that 90 million people voted on Wednesday night, host Ryan Seacrest announced that Sanchez, the half-Mexican, half-Filipina contestant from Chula Vista, California, will compete against Phillip Phillips, of Leesburg, Georgia, in next week's Idol finale. Joshua Ledet was sent packing.

Once we knew Jessica was safe (we've been rooting for the talented Mexicana all season!), we switched the channel to ABC, where the much-publicized "Grey's Anatomy" season finale was getting started. In case you haven't heard (spoiler alert!), the big death that people have been talking about for weeks, wasn't, as predicted, Sara Ramirez's character Callie Torres. Rather, it was Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh).

We're happy Sara didn't meet her maker in the finale. But we've gotta say: that final scene with Callie in her lingerie, anxiously waiting for her wife, Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw), to return home was kind of heartbreaking. Let's hope Arizona returns to Callie in one piece next season! (Oh, and one more thing: Sara looked all kinds of sexy in last night's episode!).

Are you happy that Jessica Sanchez is in finals? Relieved that Grey's didn't kill off Sara Ramirez? Dish in the comments!
