The American Idol Season 11 kids are about a third of the way through their 45-date Idol Live Summer Tour schedule, and Jessica Sanchez says the experience has been fantastic so far.

During a tour update with The Hollywood Reporter, the singer talked about how the fans have reacted to seeing their Idols live and in person. “Some of them are really shy and don’t know what to say, and they’ll shake,” she said. “Then there are some that are really happy and energetic and they’re shouting.”

According to Jessica, being on the Summer Tour has been a vastly different from competing on the American Idol stage.

It’s so much better than the show because it was a competition but it wasn’t a competition,” she said. “There was so much pressure on us to impress the audience, the judges, and Jimmy [Iovine]. It’s totally chill now. Everybody can relax. We don’t have to worry about anything and can just have fun whether it’s a day off or a show day.”
