It’s official! ‘American Idol’ runner-up Jessica Sanchez has landed herself a recurring role on ‘Glee,’ HollywoodLife.com’s sister site TVLine.com has learned exclusively! Are YOU psyched?
“Michael Ausiello broke news of Jessica Sanchez on Glee. With voices like Jessica, Lea, Naya, Melissa, Amber, and Jenna…Streisand episode?” Glee creator Ryan Murphy tweeted.
Aside from Ryan’s tweet, there are no details of what Jessica’s character will be like or when she’ll first appear, according to TVLine.
Jessica certainly made an impression on Idol with her own renditions of hits such as “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore,” “The Prayer,” and “I Will Always Love You” on Whitney Houston night! In Top 7 week, Jessica was identified as the lowest vote getter, but the judges used their sole “save” to keep her around and she went on to land in second place.
I’d have to say a role on Glee is not a bad consolation prize. In fact, I’d call Jessica a winner!
