At 17 years old, American Idol Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez is a smidge too young to vote in this year’s presidential election, but that didn’t stop her from showing her support for incumbent Barack Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention last night.

Jessica took the stage to perform the Marvin Gaye classic “You’re All I Need to Get By” and tweeted her thanks to the DNC for having her along for the ride. “Thank you so much for having me @demconvention. It was an honor to perform tonight!” the singer wrote.

She also gave a shout out her backup performers for the night, tweetingSpecial thanks to Gods Appointed People Choir @inspirethefire. It was honor [sic] to share the stage with you tonight!”

Jessica even shared a picture of herself backstage with two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas backstage. Even with curlers in her hair, Jess looked adorbs!

You can watch her performance below.
