Watch out, Rachel Berry! Not only is Jessica Sanchez coming for Finn, but she’s a ‘powerhouse singer’ who may give you a run for your money!
“I’m playing a student from a rival school who is supposed to be a legendary diva – a powerhouse singer,” the season 11 Idol contestant told PEOPLE on March 20.
Jessica, 17, will appear in two episodes this season, including the season finale of Glee.
“It’s going to be a very busy month for me,” Jessica told the magazine. “I’m very excited because I’ve never acted before. I really want to meet [Naya Rivera]. She’s got that attitude and I love it.”
Jessica Sanchez Is Dating Fellow ‘Idol’ Contestant DeAndre Brackensick
In addition to her arc on Glee and the April 30 release of her debut album Me, You and the Music, Jessica still finds time for her boyfriend, fellow season 11 contestant DeAndre Brackensick, 18.
“We have a balance,” Jessica said of her relationship. “We understand each other’s schedules so it is not so needy. It’s very good.”
While she’s dating DeAndre in real life, Jessica wouldn’t mind dating Finn on the small screen.
When asked in December about rumors she’d be Finn’s love interest on Glee, Jessica told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Yeah, my Mom and my friends tell me, everyone tells me that I am going to be Finn’s love interest! I am very excited if that happens! It would definitely be the role to play!”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for Jessica’s new role?
