Back in July we reported on American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez potentially coming to Glee in season 4. Now it appears that she will definitely be a part of the show this season!

Sanchez, who was runner-up to American Idol winner Phillip Phillips in May of this year, will be joining the show later this season, according to TVLine.com’s Michael Ausiello.

As for what role Sanchez will be fulfilling, there is no word on that just yet. However, now that it has been confirmed that she will be joining the show, expect showrunner and executive producer Ryan Murphy to surely spill the beans as the season continues.

At only 16 years old, Jessica Sanchez would fit perfectly on the show with a cast full of amazing talent in their mid to late 20s. If you remember, Jessica Sanchez won American Idol fans over last season with her absolutely breathtaking performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” during Whitney Houston night. Jessica was also the only contestant who was eliminated from the competition early on but was saved by the judges and given a second chance.

Check out a YouTube video of Jessica’s performance of “I Will Always Love You” below:

What do you think about Jessica Sanchez being a part of Glee in season 4?

        that’s great news,none of the other IDOLS including Jessica can have theirs released until Phillip gets his out, him being the AI winner.

      there was actually an article on the winner today about his new cd coming out next month

    • Stacie

      Um…Olympics anyone? He had one of the major songs that played during the US women’s gymnastics team.

    • Sam

      Yes. His single is still doing pretty well on itunes. Even here in Canada.

    Congrats to Jessica! I was voting for Phillip every week after Colton was eliminated and thought for sure she’d win, imagine my surprise! She’s got an amazing voice, let’s hope her acting works out well :]


    Jessica FTW!

    I can see her being on Vocal Adrenaline for the competition episodes. She’d be quite a worthy opponent for the ND as well as keeping in tradition for random people to on VA after graduating from competition shows.

    Santana’s younger sister perhaps?

    Finn’s new love interest??? Or Sam’s.

    • schiz0id

      She’s too young for them and too young for any love interest as well. I hope she take serious acting and dance classes for this one. Charice was awful when she did Glee.

      • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

        That really doesn’t matter for Glee. She’s an actress, her job is to act in any part they give her. These could be easy parts.

        • schiz0id

          Glee acting is very theatrical and animated so there’s no easy parts because if she does ‘normal’ acting she will drown by the other veteran characters kind of like what happened to Charice (she relied mostly on her singing to get noticed).

          • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

            Isn’t that how Finn notices people. Through their singing.

          • schiz0id

            The singing parts involve even more acting and dancing so Jessica needs to have crash courses.

  • http://twitter.com/fluflu44 Mandy Brennan

    No. I didn’t like her on American Idol at all. Her voice is so annoying to me. This sucks.

    • http://twitter.com/kristin_marie Kristin Lewis

      I agree, there was always something about her that bothered me, and I don’t really think/know if she has any acting ability. Buy maybe she’ll surprise us.

  • caroline.taylor078

    I’m gonna have to stalk her on youtube as I didn’t see American Idol!
