The runner-up of 'American Idol' season 11 is in talks for a multi-episode arc on the FOX musical series.
After wrapping up "American Idol", Jessica Sanchez is going to grace another FOX primetime program. The singer, who placed second in the latest season of the singing competition, is nearing a deal to join the upcoming fourth season of "Glee".
It has been confirmed that the 16-year-old California-born girl is in talks for a multi-episode arc. She is said to first appear on the drama musical series midway through the first half of season 4, but details of her role are yet to be known.
If the deal is sealed, Sanchez will join Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson who have earlier signed on for multi-episode arcs. Before she joins the "Glee" cast, the "Change Nothing" crooner will reunite with the other "Idol" Top 10 in a Live summer tour.
"Glee" season 4 will be moved to Thursday at 9 P.M. after "The X Factor (US)" results show. It will follow Rachel and Kurt as they attend a performing arts school in New York, while still keeping up with the New Directions in Lima.
