'American Idol': Randy Jackson Comments on Jessica Sanchez Save

It was an action-packed Thursday night on American Idol, as season 11 favorite Jessica Sanchez, long considered a frontrunner, was voted  off the competition, then saved by the judges halfway through her sing-for-your-life song. What did Idol's own Randy Jackson make of the way things went down? The judge, along with Wind-Up Records CCO Gregg  Wattenberg (who signed season 10's James Durbin) talked to THR special correspondent and season 9 alum Didi Benami about the "crazy" elimination episode moments after the credits rolled.
