American Idol 2013 runner-up Jessica Sanchez may have officially lost out to Phillip Phillips, but she was still the winner of Season 11 to her legion of fans.

 

Many fans and critics alike pegged this pint-sized singer as the one who would end American Idol’s streak of WGWGs. But majority ruled, and Jessica was ultimately named the runner up to Phillip Phillips during the nail-biting American Idol Season 11 finale.
 
Judging from what she’s been up to lately, we have a hard time thinking Idol will be Jessica’s career swan song. She’s already slated to have a meaty multi-episode arc on the hit show Glee, and her debut album will drop in Spring 2013. 
 
So far, things are looking bright for Jessica in 2013!
