American Idol Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez has both the pipes for the major airwaves and a face for the cameras, and now it looks like she’ll get to utilize both gifts on another Fox TV juggernaut — Glee!

According to TV Line, Jessica Sanchez is thisclose to striking a deal with the show-makers of Glee to appear on the series for a multi-episode arc. Reportedly, Jessica would come onto on the show about halfway through its upcoming fourth season, following her work on the American Idol summer tour.

Details are scant on her potential role in the show, but given her age (16), her size (petite), and her demeanor (sweet as can be), we’re guessing she’ll be another Cheerio-gone-Glee Club member or perhaps a tough rival competitor for the central cast. As much fun as it’d be to see Jessica shed her good nature and tackle a villainous persona, we just can’t see it happening. But who knows what surprises BB Chez has in store for us!
