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!
