Jessica Sanchez Joins Cast of Glee!
We have some great news for the Jessica Sanchez fans out there! It has been made official this week that the American Idol season 11 runner-up will be joining the cast of Glee in a recurring role. ¡Que cool! While this has been part of the rumor mill for a while, it appears this is actually going to happen, and she will be appearing in multiple episodes.
So, I wonder if she will be a student at McKinley or maybe be part of the NYC storyline? There was just a tiny hint left by creater Ryan Murphy on his Twitter feed on Monday night:
Michael Ausiello broke news of Jessica Sanchez on Glee. With voices like Jessica, Lea, Naya, Melissa, Amber, and Jenna…Streisand episode?

While there are no other details available for now, the timing does make sense. She just finished with the American Idol Live! Tour and has begun working on her debut album (which will most likely be released in November or December). Right now, Glee is one of the best places for a singer to get some publicity and showcase their vocal skills, which in the end, is good for record sales!
So, are you excited to see Jessica on Glee? Do you think she will join the cast in Ohio or New York?
