According to TVLine, last season’s runner-up on American Idol, Jessica Sanchez, has signed on for a recurring role on Fox’s musical dramedy </em>Glee.
With her big voice, Sanchez, who was only 16 while competing (she is now 17), proved time and time again she had the voice to make it big. In the end, the little girl with the largest than life voice fell just shy of becoming season 11’s American Idol, losing to Phillip Phillips.
In September Sanchez performed at the 2012 Democratic National Convention alongside fellow artists singing Marvin Gaye’s “You’re All I Need to Get By”.
Though not much is known about her possible role on Glee, rumor has it that she may be a new love interest for Cory Monteith’s character Finn.
The role has yet to be formally announced, but speculation of her joining the cast has continued since June.
It is said Sanchez will join the Glee kids halfway through the current season (season four) once her duties on the Idol summer tour have been fufilled.
Since coming in second on Idol, Sanchez has signed with Interscope Records and she has said she will be releasing her debut album in November.
