Jessica Sanchez was pretty close to nabbing the American Idol win this season. In the aftermath of her loss, things began looking down for the songstress, whose perfect pitch was not enough to ensure her the full record contract Idol runner-ups in the past had been guaranteed. Luckily, the petite singer is only 16, which is plenty of time to get her act together with singing. As it so happens, 16 is a also great age to be if you are hoping for a stint on the hit Fox show, Glee.
Glee is gearing up for its fourth season on Fox and the show is currently reportedly in talks with Sanchez to see if they can find a role for the songstress. The stint will presumably be singing-based. Since Glee always has plenty of room for competitive singing rounds at McKinley High as well as through the various competitions the New Directions club becomes invested in, creating a character and a role for Sanchez does not seem as if it will a problem.
But a potential issue could arise in finding a time to fit her in mid-season. According to TV Line, because Sanchez is currently on the American Idol tour, she won’t be available to act in the show until she completes each of the legs of the tour. Glee does seem to want Sanchez to join the show for a multi-episode arc, however, it sounds like the details need to be kinked out before it becomes official.
It would be great to see Sanchez earn the opportunity to try her hand at acting, as well as singing. Hopefully, it won’t be much longer before news of this becomes official.
