Gleek Idol? Jessica Sanchez Might Join Glee Cast!

June 22, 2012 03:00 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

If the rumors are to be believed, American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez may have a shot at appearing on hit TV show Glee.  A spot on Glee would be exciting news both for Sanchez and all of her hardcore fans. And it would set a new precedent in casting American Idol alums. Keep reading for the details!

Glee has never used American Idol as a casting pool before, but there’s a time for all things.  According to a source interviewed for Perez Hilton, Jessica Sanchez might be the next big Glee star.  She would not appear on the show right away, as she is, of course, a busy young lady. “The plan would be to have her [Sanchez] join the cast midway through the first half of Season 4, after she completes her duties on the Idols Live summer tour.”

Supposedly, Sanchez would just be on Glee for a few episodes, but if the viewers like her, there’s no reason that her contract couldn’t be extended further. After all, Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen were also only supposed to have a couple of episodes each, and look what happened to them! With many of the same viewers spending time watching both American Idol and Glee, Jessica Sanchez would certainly have plenty of fans rooting for the singer’s presence on Glee.

Do you think Jessica Sanchez would make a good addition to the Glee cast? Should director Ryan Murphy just skip The Glee Project and start recruiting from American Idol? Feel free to share your thoughts below!

    Would like to see Jessica perform on TV musicals like Glee and Smash even if it’s just as a guest.

    omg, JS appearance on Glee would be uber exciting and interesting. She got the voice fosho and I bet her acting craft will just be a second nature for her. Her entry to Glee, if indeed pursued, should be made sensational by Glee themselves and expect rise in its viewership. Hone and market JS properly then you have in her a polished diamind, i.e a cash cow.

    I truely believe that Jessica would be an excellent addition to the Glee cast. With all her talent she can’t miss. I totally agree with the comments ” Lloyd” made above.

    why gleek? she’s no geek. People can be so obnoxious & hurtful. Am happy for her & am sure she will be amazing on any musical.

    American Idol is reality show. Jessica was incredible on AI.With that in mind, am highly disappointed that a magazine covering reality shows label her as a geek?Since when has an insanely talened, witty & charming 16 yr old become a geek?Happy for Jessica. Will be watching Glee this season.

    Labeling Jessica Sanchez as a ‘Gleek’ is not meant to be insulting. ‘Gleek’ refers to anyone who loves the show Glee. If Jessica Sanchez joins Glee, she will be the new idol of many Glee lovers, or, “Gleeks.”
