Not many details are yet available but according to TV Line, Sanchez would join the cast midway through the upcoming season after she finishes the American Idol tour. Michael Slezak and Michael Ausiello of the site hinted:
“Presumably, though, Sanchez?s character would in some capacity ? either as part of McKinley High?s New Directions show choir or at the New York Academy for the Dramatic Arts where Rachel Berry is headed in the fall ? compete for solos with the show?s existing and impressive stable of vocalists. In other words, if you love a diva-off (and who doesn?t?), Season 4 of Glee is about to get intense.”
Yes!! This is so exciting, and hopefully there is no road block in this signing. I’m hoping Jessica gets all of the success she deserves.
UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the show is thisclose to signing the singer.
