Jessica Sanchez on the Set of “Tonight” Music Video (VIDEO) (She’ll Perform on Idol 3/21!)

UPDATE: A reporter from Access Hollywood tweeted that Jessica will perform “Tonight” with Ne-Yo on the American Idol results show on March 21

Those of us who got to hear the Jessica Sanchez single, “Tonight”–a collaboration with co-writer Ne-Yo-know that the tune is upbeat and clubby–a real departure from the emotional ballads she sang on Idol.

MTV visited Jessica on the “Tonight” music video set, and she shared a few details about her debut single:

‘Tonight’ is a song about people that are usually stressed out, everybody has problems and everything, and ‘Tonight’ is a song about going out that night and having the best night of your life,” Sanchez said. “So I’m just going to be walking through having a typical day, me being like ‘whatever,’ then I’m going to go to the club and be like ‘oh my gosh, it’s like the best night of my life.’ I’m just going to let go and just have fun. There’s going to be lots of dancing. It’s going to be hot.

MTV’s interview with Jessica features clips of the American Idol runner-up and Ne-Yo werking it out in a club:
