American Idol Runner Up Jessica Sanchez in Talks to Join ‘Glee’

She may be the first American Idol runner-up not to be guaranteed an album, but that isn’t stopping Jessica Sanchez from shining. According to reports, the 16-year-old singer is in talks to join Fox’s musical show Glee for the fourth season.

Even though she didn’t win Idol, Sanchez had music fans and judges up in arms after belting songs like Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and the Dreamgirls classic “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.”

Currently it is unclear what role Sanchez will play on Glee, but she will reportedly join the series in med-season, following her Idols Live summer tour.
